  1. Isaac

    Isaac as described in the Hebrew Bible and the Qur'an, was the only son Abraham had with his wife Sarah, and was the father of Jacob and Esau. Isaac was one of the three patriarchs of the Israelites. According to the Book of Genesis, Abraham was 100 years old when Isaac was born, and Sarah was beyond childbearing years. Isaac was the only biblical patriarch whose name was not changed, and the only one who did not leave Canaan. Compared to those of Abraham and Jacob, Isaac's story relates fewer incidents of his life. He died when he was 180 years old, making him the longest-lived patriarch.

The Nuttall Encyclopedia

  1. Isaac

    a Hebrew patriarch, son of Abraham, born to him when he was old; a mild man with no great force of character, and a contrast to Ishmael, his half-brother; lived to a great age.

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    I fully agree with the famous quote by Sir Isaac Newton, one of the genius scientists and a great philosopher: “I was like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.” In my view, this quote and underlying thought process are the best examples of humility and modesty as much as the self-realization attained by a brilliant mind. When we think about our accomplishments, no matter how huge those are in quantity or how outstanding in quality, we realize and appreciate that the great ocean of truth still lays all undiscovered, yet awaiting millions and trillions of seekers like us, who are yet to arrive in next generations. Newton's thoughtful quote, that honest truth, certainly brings us back to reality, and down to earth, lest we forget.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Estoy totalmente de acuerdo con la famosa cita de sir isaac newton, uno de los científicos genio y un gran filósofo: "Yo era como un niño jugando en la orilla del mar, y divirtiéndome ahora y luego encontrar un guijarro más liso o una concha más bonita que ordinario, mientras el gran océano de la verdad yacía todo sin descubrir antes que yo. "A mi juicio, esta cita y proceso de pensamiento subyacente son los mejores ejemplos de la humildad y la modestia tanto como la auto-realización alcanzado por una mente brillante. cuando pensamos en nuestros logros, no importa lo grande que los que están en la cantidad o la forma excepcional en la calidad, nos damos cuenta y apreciamos que el gran océano de la verdad todavía pone todo por descubrir, sin embargo, a la espera de millones y billones de solicitantes como nosotros, que aún no se han llegará en las próximas generaciones. pensativo de la cita de Newton, que la verdad honesta, sin duda nos trae de vuelta a la realidad, y bajar a la tierra, para que no se olvide.
