Newton’s Apple

Posted in Everyday by Witt on January 4, 2010

Where would our society be if it weren’t for the discoveries and theories of Sir Isaac Newton? From mathematics to gravitation, he single-handedly elucidated the enigma of the universe. Influenced numerous intellectuals for the next hundreds of years and even inspired Jobs and Wozniak to name their little company in his honor.

Here is Google’s tribute for his 367th birthday:

Newton's Apple

“I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.” – Sir Isaac Newton
