There was some quote by a scientist, mathematician, or philosopher that said something to the effect of that he had invented nothing new, but was just resurrecting the work of the Ancient Greeks. After searching the web I have come up dry. So, I'm wondering if anyone here knows the quote and who said it? Or maybe it doesn't exist at all?

Hmm... None of those sound like the quote I'm thinking of. Perhaps it doesn't exist at all. I think I remember it from an internet meme, so it could be that what I dimly remember was fabricated.
