Newton's third law?

Ok, if you exert a force on something then you receive the same force (equal and opposite) then surely the object i push e.g a crate stays stationary. And if i blow something e.g paper. The paper goes forward but what force does the paper exert back? So basically what i'm trying to say is how do objects move... show more Ok, if you exert a force on something then you receive the same force (equal and opposite) then surely the object i push e.g a crate stays stationary.

So basically what i'm trying to say is how do objects move because i don't get it. In addition can somebody please explain to me how a car moves because people say it is due to friction but friction is in the opposite direction of the direction of the car.

Imagine you are explaining this to a baby
