The solution of this problem involves anagrams. Searching for '6accdae13eff7i3l9n4o4qrr4s8t12ux' on Google reveals it to be a form of proof-of-priority hash used by Newton to protect his theorem of calculus. *(I can't remember the context, but trifle was also a reference to Newton for some obscure anecdote.)* The procedure is to sort the letters in the phrase and then run-length encode them. Each list item is a result of this procedure, but for solvability it's applied only to individual words.

Solving each reveals the following quotes, and Google provides the authors:

- "We shall therefore assume the complete physical equivalence of a gravitational field and a corresponding acceleration of the reference system." -
*Albert Einstein* - "Thoughts are steered in different ways." -
*Stanislaw Ulam* - "Be less curious about people and more curious about ideas." -
*Marie Curie* - "Music is a hidden arithmetic exercise of the soul, which does not know that it is counting." -
*Gottfried Leibnitz* - "I can be your hero, baby. I can kiss away the pain. I will stand by you forever. You can take my breath away." -
*Enrique Iglesias* - "Cogito ergo sum" -
*RenĂ© Descartes*

The authors' surnames spell out EUCLID, the final answer.
