Interesting facts:
Isaac Newton wasn’t expected to survive as he was born prematurely. It is said that he was so small when he was born that he could have fit inside a quart mug.
Newton served as a Member of Parliament for exactly one year (1689 – 1690). During all the lengthy proceedings, he spoke only once: he asked a nearby person to close an open window!
We always heard of a story that Newton was walking around his garden at Woolsthorpe Manor when he saw a falling apple, inspired by which he formulated the theory of universal gravitation. But Newton himself said that he was in his house staring through the window when he saw an apple fall from a tree.
Quotes:
“This most beautiful system [the universe] could only proceed from the dominion of an intelligent and powerful Being.”
“To explain all nature is too difficult a task for any one man or even for any one age. 'Tis much better to do a little with certainty, and leave the rest for others that come after you, than to explain all things.”
“No great discovery was ever made without a bold guess.”
