The laws that he is most famous for are the first, second and third laws of motion and the universal law of gravity.
His ideas impacted society by giving them more knowledge. Without the discoveries that he made we wouldn't know about gravity and the laws of motion.
One of the most famous quote that he said was "If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants." This means that no matter what you discovered you need help from someone. When he said on shoulders of giants that's, the giant is the amount of help he got.
