"If i have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants"
He was born at Wools Thorpe, a hamlet in the Lincolnshire county on one Christmas morning three months before the actual nine months. That is to say he was born premature. He was born to an illiterate father who happens to die three month before his birth. At age three, his mother deserted him for his grand mother and remarried with one Barnabas.
At his early teen, he felt dejected, rejected and abandoned by his family. This made young Newton to marry his books as a compensate to his kind of lonely life. After pre-college education at Kings school, he joined Trinity college, Cambridge. As a means of survival while in school he did some valets duties until he won a scholarship. At college, he found a mentor, who happens to be the first professor of mathematics in that school. This professor opened young Newton eyes to the world of unsolved problems in mechanics and mathematics.
