3 thoughts on “A thought from Issac Newton !!

  1. I have read the entirety of all the works of Newton and I was sure that he didn’t write something like that.
    So I did a little digging and I found that this was written by Joseph Fort Newton, not Isaac. It was written in his book entitled Adventures of Faith (1948).
    However, this is also a misquotation as the original writing goes like this:
    “Why are so many people shy, lonely, shut up within themselves, unequal to their tasks, unable to be happy? Because they are inhabited by fear, like the man in the Parable of the Talents, erecting walls around themselves instead of building bridges into the lives of others; shutting out life.”

    1. I appreciate your concern and necessary correction on the subject thought and thanks a lot for your time in providing light on the same. The thought was shared in good spirit and for the benefit of many, although this may or may not pertain to Sir Issac Newton. In this data filled world, it has really become difficult to judge the reliability of any source. I would therefore suggest that, as long as any thought or poem or a story has a good moral, value or ethics connected to it, we may go by the essence of it and stick to the value learning process and not rely on the character associated with it.
      Thank you once again for the necessary correction. Although the source I have taken from is a very reliable one, still I agree with what you say, as there is always a probability of wrong information flowing around, but I always ensure that any information i share has a value associated with it.

      Thank you.
