Quotes, Cartoons and Isaac Newton

It’s taken me a week and a half to come up with a response to Shafali’s Creativity Carnival cue-art caricature of Isaac Newton.

Your cue is the artwork above. You have a week to get creative and make a post that connects with the cue. You are welcome to do anything creative with the cue.

“Your cue is the artwork above.
You have a week to get creative and make a post that connects with the cue. (I’m late!)
You are welcome to do anything creative with the cue.” Shafali

In the spirit of the comic nature of Newton’s portrait, I decided to put together some Bitstrips comics with gravity quotes (and a few apples) for a rather absurd post.


What goes up must come down.

— Isaac Newton



I want to lose weight by eating nothing but moon pies, which have significantly less gravity than earthier foods such as fruits and vegetables.
― Jarod Kintz, I Want


I would feel infinitely more comfortable in your presence if you would agree to treat gravity as a law, rather than one of a number of suggested options.
Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones


I have a strong disrespect for authority and for rules. Including gravity. Gravity sucks.
Sebastian Thrun


You fainted and I caught you. It was the first time I’d supported a human. You had such heavy bones. I put myself between you and gravity. Impossible.
Elizabeth Knox, The Vintner’s Luck


You can’t blame gravity for falling in love.
Albert Einstein



Gravity is a contributing factor in nearly 73 percent of all accidents involving falling objects.
Dave Barry

Isaac Newton

An object in motion tends to remain in motion along a straight line unless acted upon by an outside force.      

— Isaac Newton


Love is metaphysical gravity.
R. Buckminster Fuller

And finally, with a fun tip of the hat to the cue-art…


Just because an apple falls one hundred times out of a hundred does not mean it will fall on the hundred and first.
― Derek Landy, Death Bringer

A little humor and a few quotes to celebrate Shafali’s Creativity Carnival and Isaac Newton. I’m looking forward to her next cue-art. I invite you to visit her website, she is an awesome caricaturist!

As always I am so pleased that you visited. Your comments warm my heart and put a smile in my day.

Now this kind of gravity I like!
