Isaac Newton is one of the most influential scientists in the history of mankind. When he was a teenager, his mother pulled him out of school in order to help out at their family farm. Newton did not have an interest in being a farmer with his love for learning, thus he went back to finish school.

His masterpiece Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica (which means “Mathematical principals of Natural Philosophy”) was published in 1687. It is here where he describes his famous three laws of motion along with the law of gravity. In addition to this, he invented the reflecting telescope and a new type of math called “fluxions,” which we now know as calculus.

Below are some of Newton’s most famous quotes:

1. “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants.” – Isaac Newton

2. “Nature is pleased with simplicity. And nature is no dummy” – Isaac Newton

3. “What we know is a drop, what we don’t know is an ocean.” – Isaac Newton

4. “No great discovery was ever made without a bold guess.” – Isaac Newton

5. “Truth is ever to be found in the simplicity, and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things.” –Isaac Newton

6. “What goes up must come down.” –Isaac Newton

7.Live your life as an Exclamation rather than an Explanation” – Isaac Newton

8. “You have to make the rules, not follow them” – Isaac Newton

9. “We build too many walls and not enough bridges.”- Isaac Newton

10. “If I have ever made any valuable discoveries, it has been due more to patient attention, than to any other talent.”- Isaac Newton

11. “Genius is patience.”- Isaac Newton

12. “To every action there is always opposed an equal reaction.”- Isaac Newton

13. “My powers are ordinary. Only my application brings me success.”- Isaac Newton

14. “I believe the more I study science, the more I believe in God.”- Isaac Newton
