Robert became one of the greatest scientists of all time, but remained a shy, humble person. Despite his quiet nature, he worked forcefully and bravely against persecution and injustice. Robert Boyle's friends were a roll call of the famous: Christopher Wren, Samuel Pepys, John Milton, Isaac Newton and many others. Yet, during his life Robert Boyle towered over all of them. Robert's brothers and sisters all received regal titles such as knight, viscount, earl, lord. However, Robert Boyle refused all titles. He preferred to remain what he was, a Christian gentleman.

He succeeded in making many remarkable discoveries during those difficult times. He lived a devout Christian life, using his science to glorify God.

The Age of Discovery. Jul 13, 2007
This story is one of tragedy, humility and selflessness. I especially enjoyed this time when science was exploding with curiousity and discovery. Many of the physical laws we know today were documented here.
