Happily, it was otherwise decreed! The tiny infant, on whose little lips the breath of life so doubtingly hovered, lived; — lived to a vigorous maturity, to a hale old age; — lived to become the boast of his country, the wonder of his time, and the "ornament of his species.
Two traditions were held in the family: one, that they were of Scotch extraction; the other, that they came originally from Newton, in Lancashire, dwelling, for a time, however, at Westby, county of Lincoln, before the removal to and purchase of Woolsthorpe — about a hundred years before this memorable birth.
The widow Newton was left with the simple means of a comfortable subsistence.
The Woolsthorpe estate together with small one which she possessed at Sewstern, in Leicestershire, yielded her an income of some eighty pounds; and upon this limited sum, she had to rely chiefly for the support of herself, and the education of her child.
She continued his nurture for three years, when, marrying again, she confided the tender charge to the care of her own mother. Great genius is seldom marked by precocious development; and young Isaac, sent, at the usual age, to two day schools at Skillington and Stoke, exhibited no unusual traits of character.
In his twelfth year, he was placed at the public school at Grantham, and boarded at the house of Mr. Clark, an apothecary. But even in this excellent seminary, his mental acquisitions continued for a while unpromising enough: study apparently had no charms for him; he was very inattentive, and ranked low in the school.
One day, however, the boy immediately above our seemingly dull student gave him a severe kick in the stomach; Isaac, deeply affected, but with no outburst of passion, betook himself, with quiet, incessant toil, to his books; he quickly passed above the offending classmate; yet there he stopped not; the strong spirit was, for once and forever, awakened, and, yielding to its noble impulse, he speedily took up his position at the head of all.
His peculiar character began now rapidly to unfold itself.
Close application grew to be habitual. Observation alternated with reflection. Generosity, modesty, and a love of truth distinguished him then as ever afterwards.
He did not often join his classmates in play; but he would contrive for them various amusements of a scientific kind. Paper kites he introduced; carefully determining their best form and proportions, and the position and number of points whereby to attach the string. He also invented paper lanterns; these served ordinarily to guide the way to school in winter mornings, but occasionally for quite another purpose; they were attached to the tails of kites in a dark night, to the dismay of the country people dreading portentous comets, and to the immeasureable delight of his companions.
Isaac Newton's Principia, English Translation
His father having died before his birth and his mother having remarried, Newton was sent to live with his maternal grandmother in the neighboring town of Grantham, where he attended school. An inattentive student, Newton nonetheless showed a great aptitude for making mechani cal contrivances such as windmills and water clocks. While at school, Newton boarded with an apothecary, who may have imparted to the youngster a lifelong love of chemical experiments.
In , following the death of her second husband, Newton's mother removed him from school and brought him back to Woolsthorpe with the idea of making her son a farmer. Newton's teacher at Grantham, recognizing the boy's talents, prevailed upon her to allow Newton to prepare for entrance to Cambridge University.
He entered Trinity College, Cambridge, in , under the tutelage of Isaac Barrow, Lucasian Professor of Mathematics, and took his degree four years later. Between and , Newton made great strides in his method of "fluxions" an early form of differential calculus and began work on gravitation.

It was also at this time that Newton inaugurated his studies on the nature of light: he demonstrated that differences in color resulted from differences in refrangibility, i.
In , Newton returned to Cambridge from Woolsthorpe where he had gone to escape the plague ; two years later he succeeded Barrow as Lucasian Professor.
In Newton was elected to the Royal Society.Amazon Rapids Fun stories for kids on the go. Isaac Newton is one of the most influential men of science of all time and this volume reflects his inherent brilliance.
A must read for aspiring mathematician or scientist interested in the development of thought in western science. Written over a period of only eighteen months, this book was immediately hailed as a masterpiece: it demonstrated how the law of gravitation could explain diverse phenomena, ranging from the tides to the irregularities of the moon's motion, and made possible a mathematical principle, unrealized up to that time, of the workings of a dynamic universe.
Originally published in Enabled Lending: English ASIN: It is a deductive work in which, from very general propositions, mechanical properties are demonstrated in the form of theorems. The Woolsthorpe estate together with small one which she possessed at Sewstern, in Leicestershire, yielded her an income of some eighty pounds; and upon this limited sum, she had to rely chiefly for the support of herself, and the education of her child.
