Upon the shoulders of giants

Challenging. Standing upon the shoulders of giants...

Especially as this expression (most probably) originates from Isaac Newton.
You know... the gravity guy?
But. The expression has become well known as a reference to say thanks to 
people who helped you, either on purpose or by coincidence.
Mostly used in acknowledgements in scientific papers, however
I prefer another vision.
Those steady shoulders you could use to accomplish what you're doing today,
were the ones who knew you the best,
the ones who only wanted the best for you.
The unforgettable support.
the lifetime support of
 moms and dads.
Those are true giants.
