Isaac Newton dies age 84

31 Mar, 1727

Newton dies of natural causes at age 84, and is buried with full honors in Westminster Abbey. As a celebrated natural philosopher, he is a new kind of national hero.

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