Isaac Newton was born on January 4, 1643, in Woolsthorpe, Lincolnshire, England. The son of a farmer, that died nearly three months after he was born.
His education interrupted by a failed attempt to turn him into a farmer, attended the University of Cambridge in 1661.
I will never become a farmer like my father was!
When the Great Plague hit Cambridge in 1665, Newton had to go back to Woolsthorpe and he began formulating his theories on calculus, light, and color
"I can calculate the motion of heavenly bodies, but not the madness of people."
He was sitting underneath his apple orchard where an apple fell and hit his head, right when that happened, he started his thoughts about gravitational force.
Newton's dog, Diamond, caused a fire burning down years of hard work.
By the time he reached 80 years of age, Newton was experiencing digestion problems. In March 1727, Newton experienced severe pain in his abdomen and blacked out, never to regain consciousness. He died the next day, on March 31, 1727, at the age of 84.
