Sir Isaac Newton an English physicist, natural philosopher, astronomer, and mathematician is one of the most well-known characters to have ever lived.

As a Theologian and Alchemist he had more influence than almost anyone of his time and in his popular book, he wrote about the three laws of motion and universal gravitation. For the following three centuries after Newton passed away, his three laws of motion would go on to dominate the scientific view of the physical universe.

And Newton was even responsible for developing a theory of color and the first telescope. He discovered that a prism decomposes white light into the many different colors that form what we know as the visible light spectrum.

 If all of these accomplishments aren't enough to make you listen to this man then consider the fact that Newton was also responsible for formulating the empirical law of cooling and he even studied the speed of sound.

Now by looking at Sir Isaac Newton and his philosophies we can take away some important life lessons and use them to better our own life.

Life lesson number #1: Seek knowledge.

Newton once said, "if I have seen further than others it is by standing upon the shoulders of a giant." A lot of times people try to recreate the wheel and if you want to make great progress, all you really need to do is build on what others have done or created. You can start by learning what others already know and when you seek more knowledge you're positioning yourself to see what others can't see.

Life lesson number #2: Be tactful.

Newton once said, "tact is the art of making a point without making an enemy." How many times have you tried to make a point and ended up pissing off the other person? If you're like me you've probably done this hundred times. Everyone stands to gain from improving their tact delicacy, discretion, and diplomacy. Put simply you should try to be tactful in everything you do which means to make a point in a way that is delicate, understanding, considerate, and diplomatic.

Life lesson number #3: Think patiently.

Newton once said, "if I have done the public any service it is due to my patient thought, We don't spend enough time thinking patiently." To solidify this point further Albert Einstein said "it is not that I'm so smart it is just that I stay with problems longer" Every day allocate a chunk of your time to spend some time thinking and you'll be able to solve many of your greatest problems. By reflecting on your life's trajectory and actually thinking patiently about it you'll be much more capable of aligning with your dreams and interest.

Life lesson number #4: Pursue the truth.

Newton once said, "a man may imagine things that are false but he can only understand things that are true." For if the thing is false the apprehension of them is not understanding. At the end of the day you must pursue truth and everything you do. The truth is heavy so few people care to carry it. If you want a better life be one of those people who pursues truth every single day and your soul will thank you for it.

Life lesson number #5: Build bridges and not walls.

Newton once said, "we build too many walls and not enough bridges." Think about Donald Trump in the wall that he wants to build. Tony Robbins said that "the quality of your life is based on the quality of your relationships." Which is why you need to spend time building bridges instead of walls. When you build walls you're stalling your growth and

Joseph Newton said, "people are lonely because they build walls and not bridges." If you're feeling lonely maybe you've been unknowingly building walls. Fortunately, it's easy to changes and start bettering your relationships with your family and friends.

Sir Isaac Newton was one of the greatest thinkers to have ever lived and through the way he lived his life he passed on these life lessons as I give to you so the question is we use them to better your own life?
