### Popular passages

Page 7 - Every body continues in its state of rest or of uniform motion in a straight line, except in so far as it may be compelled by impressed forces to change that state.

Page 7 - Change of motion is proportional to the impressed force and takes place in the direction of the straight line in which the force acts.

Page 10 - To every action there is always an equal and contrary reaction ; or the mutual actions of any two bodies are always equal and oppositely directed.
