English physicist and mathematician (1642-1727)

The main business of natural philosophy is to argue from phenomena without feigning hypothesis, and to deduce causes from effects till we come to the very first cause, which certainly is not mechanical; and not only to unfold the mechanism of the world, but chiefly to resolve these, and to such like questions.

ISAAC NEWTON, A Treatise on Physics

These stars say something very significant to all of us, and each man has the whole hemisphere of them, if he will look up, to counsel and befriend him.

ISAAC NEWTON, attributed, Day's Collacon

From blind physical necessity, which is always and everywhere the same, no variety adhering to time and place could evolve, and all variety of created objects which represent order and life in the universe could happen only by the willful reasoning of its original Creator, Whom I call the Lord God.

ISAAC NEWTON, attributed, Our Humanist Heritage
