Newtons first law
It happens quite often that what might seem to be an observation completely unrelated to the functioning of human society in fact can be used for analysis of certain aspects of our life . For example , consider the fundamental First Law of Motion formulated by Isaac Newton , which states that a body at rest remains at rest , and a body in motion continues to move in a straight line with a constant speed unless and until an external . force acts upon it (Wikipedia 2006 .

Perhaps the most striking change that happened was the distance that appeared between us and our previous family friends who started avoiding my father as he was asking for help In the end , no one was out there for help , and this sad revelation made me realize the true significance of money .
