Newton's 3rd Law: How Can It Work For Me?

Science & Technology 
According to Sir Isaac Newton, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.  Oooh! I like that!  So then, if I like a girl, she will like me back.  Well, that principle works very well when applied in Physics but apparently not in relationships.  But stubborn person that I am, I would like to think that that principle is operative in every aspect of existence.  So that if person A does bad things to person B, then person A will have those things done to him in return.  And if person A does good for person B, then person A gets that good returned to her.  And so, knowing that Law, people in the world will try hard to avoid doing evil and seek to do more good.  Then the world would be a "beautiful and wonderful place after all."   Oh well, I can keep dreaming.
