For every action there is a equal and opposite reaction

As if it applies to almost everything in life. If it did, life would be fair.

When a first body exerts a force F1 on a second body, the second body simultaneously exerts a force F2 = −F1 on the first body.

This law applies to far more than physics however, it applies to almost everything in life. What do you think of when you hear it?


Ugh... trig-based Newtonian physics. Not my favorite subject. However, I disagree that it applies to any part of life that isn't Newtonian physics, although the phrase has been widely misappropriated due to a fundamental misunderstanding of Newton's Third Law of Motion. It's okay though, because understanding this law and being able to apply it mathematically isn't likely to make your life noticeably better.

I prefer the First Rule of Fightclub.

To be perfectly honest... anyone who would try to extrapolate something so vague and general as what the OP was suggesting from Newton's Law (or any other big law of physics or mathematics or... any of the physical sciences) must have not thought it through or not understood the law in question.
This is probably pretty obvious and a waste of time, but here's an example: I drink milk and that is supposed to have an equal and opposite reaction. The question of what it means for something to be equal and opposite of drinking milk is pretty sketchy itself, and if a few people try to answer this question they're pretty likely to get different answers -- many if not all of which won't really make sense to others.

No.

In a relationship, someone has to give more than the other.

Mother to children... the mother has to give to her children more than she takes.

It's never equal. This law only applies to force.

^ The child gives less?

Economic inequality??

It applies to physics, not life in general. If you think that then you must not understand the law

I think that for ever cause there is a resulting effect, but they are not always equal or opposite.

I think of the atoms that make up everything in the entire Universe and how everything reacts together that has come into existance.
