    "There is something lamentable, degrading, and almost insane in pursuing the visionary schemes of past ages with dogged determination, in paths of learning which have been investigated by superior minds, and with which such adventurous persons are totally unacquainted.

     Henry Dircks, Perpetuum Mobile: Or, A History of the Search for Self-motive (1861)

   "Modern flywheels can have a zero-load rundown time measurable in years."
