WHO WAS ISAAC NEWTON?

Probably you have heard about Isaac Newton. Listen and see why he was so important in Physics.
Click HERE


And here you have some of his most famous quotes:


"We build too many walls and not enough bridges." (I wonder if Donald Trump has read it!)

"Truth is ever to be found in simplicity, and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things. "

"My powers are ordinary. Only my application brings me success."

"I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me."

AN AWARD WINNING MICRO STORY BY RODRIGO TOVAR

Rodrigo Tovar, from 4th.A participated in a national award with this wonderful micro story and he got one of the awards. Congratulations, Rodrigo!!!



Carrera hacia el ocaso


  Había un hombre sin sombra que solo se dedicaba a correr. Corría contra el tiempo porque temía que si no ganaba la carrera, lo perdería todo. Pero por mucho que corría, su eterno rival siempre iba al exacto ritmo de sus pasos, ni uno más, ni uno menos.
  Un día se dio cuenta de que su lucha era inútil. Finalmente se paró. De repente, dejó de ver a su rival. Empezó a amanecer tras de sí, proyectando su sombra hasta el horizonte. De todo esto ya no se percataba; había ganado la carrera.

A Red, Red Rose

Related Poem Content Details

O my Luve is like a red, red rose 
   That’s newly sprung in June; 
O my Luve is like the melody 
   That’s sweetly played in tune. 

So fair art thou, my bonnie lass, 
   So deep in luve am I; 
And I will luve thee still, my dear, 
   Till a’ the seas gang dry. 

Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear, 
   And the rocks melt wi’ the sun; 
I will love thee still, my dear, 
   While the sands o’ life shall run. 

And fare thee weel, my only luve! 
   And fare thee weel awhile! 
And I will come again, my luve, 
   Though it were ten thousand mile.
