Motivational Isaac Newton Quotes and Sayings

"As a blind man has no idea of colors, so have we no idea of the manner by which the all-wise God perceives and understands all things."

Isaac Newton Quotes:- Isaac Newton PRS FRS was an English mathematician, physicist, astronomer, theologian, and author who is widely recognized as one of the most influential scientists of all time, and a key figure in the scientific revolution.

Isaac Newton was born, premature and tiny, in 1642 in Woolsthorpe, England. His father, wealthy but uneducated, died before Newton was born, and he ended up being raised by his grandmother after his mother remarried.

He worked as a servant to pay his bills. And he kept a journal about his ideas. It’s said he didn’t excel at school, but he ended up studying law at Trinity College Cambridge, part of Cambridge University.

Isaac Newton is synonymous with apples and gravity. He rose to become the most influential scientist of the 17th century, his ideas becoming the foundation of modern physics, after very humble beginnings.

But first, the big question: Did an apple really fall on Newton’s head and spur him to figure out gravity? Historians say there is likely no more than a grain of truth to the story.
