More quotes from a man from history. Sir Isaac Newton was a mathematician, physicist, astronomer, theologian, and an author. He is known for universal gravitation, optics, calculus and much more. For a man in the 16th century, it seems that every one hundred years we have a few key people who were geniuses. Newton would tell the story of an apple falling from a tree giving him inspiration for his work on gravity. However, there is no evidence he was actually hit by an apple.

But, maybe it caused him to suffer two nervous breakdown in his life time.
