Galileo Galilei Quote: “Being infinitely amazed, so do I give thanks to God, Who has been pleased to make me the first observer of marvelous things, unrevealed to bygone ages.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “Facts which at first seem improbable will, even on scant explanation, drop the cloak which has hidden them and stand forth in naked and simple beauty.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “I truly believe the book of philosophy to be that which stands perpetually open before our eyes, though since it is written in characters different from those of our alphabet it cannot be read by everyone.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “The hypothesis is pretty; its only fault is that it is neither demonstrated nor demonstrable. Who does not see that this is purely arbitrary fiction that puts nothingness as existing and proposes nothing more than simple noncontradiciton?”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “I think that in the discussion of natural problems we ought to begin not with the Scriptures, but with experiments, and demonstrations.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “They who depend upon manifest observations will philosophize better than those who persist in opinions repugnant to the senses.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “It is surely harmful to souls to make it a heresy to believe what is proved.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “One can understand nature only when one has learned the language and the signs in which it speaks to us; but this language is mathematics and these signs are methematical figures.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “Infinities and indivisibles transcend our finite understanding, the former on account of their magnitude, the latter because of their smallness; Imagine what they are when combined.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “I would say here something that was heard from an ecclesiastic of the most eminent degree: The intention of the Holy Spirit is to teach us how one goes to heaven, not how the heavens go.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “Nothing can be taught to a man, only it’s possibly to help him to discover it inside.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “Well, since paradoxes are at hand, let us see how it might be demonstrated that in a finite continuous extension it is not impossible for infinitely many voids to be found.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “Some, merely to contradict what I had said, did not scruple to cast doubt upon things they had seen with their own eyes again and again.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “The doctrine that the earth is neither the center of the universe nor immovable, but moves even with a daily rotation, is absurd, and both philosophically and theologically false, and at the least an error of faith.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “I do not know what to say in a case so surprising, so unlooked for and so novel.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “It is necessary for the Bible, in order to be accommodated to the understanding of every man, to speak many things which appear to differ from the absolute truth so far as the bare meaning of the words is concerned.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “It is very pious to say and prudent to affirm that the holy Bible can never speak untruth – whenever its true meaning is understood. But I believe nobody will deny that it is often very abstruse, and may say things which are quite different from wha.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “With regard to matters requiring thought: the less people know and understand about them, the more positively they attempt to argue concerning them.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “The earth, in fair and grateful exchange, pays back to the moon an illumination similar to that which it receives from her throughout nearly all the darkest gloom of the night.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “It was granted to me alone to discover all the new phenomena in the sky and nothing to anybody else. This is the truth which neither envy nor malice can supress.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “We must say that there are as many squares as there are numbers.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “I do not think it is necessary to believe that the same God who has given us our senses, reason, and intelligence wished us to abandon their use, giving us by some other means the information that we could gain through them.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “They seemed to forget that the increase of known truths stimulates the investigation, establishment and growth of the arts; not their dimination or destruction.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “I am certainly interested in a tribunal in which, for having used my reason, I was deemed little less than a heretic. Who knows but men will reduce me from the profession of a philosopher to that of historian of the Inquisition!”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “For my part I consider the earth very noble and admirable precisely because of the diverse alterations, changes, generations, etc. that occur in it incessantly.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “Philosophy itself cannot but benefit from our disputes, for if our conceptions prove true, new achievements will be made; if false, their refutation will further confirm the original doctrines.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “I abjure with a sincere heart and unfeigned faith, I curse and detest the said errors and heresies, and generally all and every error and sect contrary to the Holy Catholic Church.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “I believe that the intention of Holy Writ was to persuade men of the truths necessary to salvation; such as neither science nor other means could render credible, but only the voice of the Holy Spirit.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “Spots are on the surface of the solar body where they are produced and also dissolved, some in shorter and others in longer periods. They are carried around the Sun; an important occurrence in itself.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “Holy Writ was intended to teach men how to go to Heaven not how the heavens go.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “To command their professors of astronomy to refute their own observations is to command them not to see what they do see and not to understand what they do understand.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “But some, besides allegiance to their original error, possess I know not what fanciful interest in remaining hostile not so much toward the things in question as toward their discoverer.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “The greatness and the glory of God shine forth marvelously in all His works, and is to be read above all in the open book of the heavens.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “In time you may discover everything that can be discovered, and still your progress will only be progress away from humanity. The distance between you and them can one day become so great that your joyous cry over some new gain could be answered by an universal shriek of horror.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “It vexes me when they would constrain science by the authority of the Scriptures, and yet do not consider themselves bound to answer reason and experiment.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “There is not a single effect in Nature, not even the least that exists, such that the most ingenious theorists can ever arrive at a complete understanding of it. This vain presumption of understanding everything can have no other basis than never understanding anything. For anyone who had experienced just once the perfect understanding of one single thing, and had truly tasted how knowledge is attained, would recognise that of the infinity of other truths he understands nothing.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “In the sciences, the authority of thousands of opinions is not worth as much as one tiny spark of reason in an individual man.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “To apply oneself to great inventions, starting from the smallest beginnings, is no task for ordinary minds; to divine that wonderful arts lie hid behind trivial and childish things is a conception for superhuman talents.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “To me, a great ineptitude exists on the part of those who would have it that God made the universe more in proportion to the small capacity of their reason than to His immense, His infinite, power.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “To our natural and human reason, I say that these terms ‘large,’ ‘small,’ ‘immense,’ ‘minute,’ etc. are not absolute but relative; the same thing in comparison with various others may be called at one time ‘immense’ and at another ’imperceptible.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “In the future, there will be opened a gateway and a road to a large and excellent science into which minds more piercing than mine shall penetrate to recesses still deeper.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “My dear Kepler, I wish that we might laugh at the stupidity of the human herd. What do you have to say about the principal philosophers of this academy who are filled with the stubbornness of an asp and do not want to look at either the planets, the moon or the telescope, even though I have freely and deliberately offered them the opportunity a thousand times? Truly, just as the asp stops its ears, so do these philosophers shut their eyes to the light of truth.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “The fear of infinity is a form of myopia that destroys the possibility of seeing the actual infinite, even though it in its highest form has created and sustains us.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “Philosophy is written in this all-encompassing book that is constantly open to our eyes, that is the universe; but it cannot be understood unless one first learns to understand the language and knows the characters in which it is written. It is written in mathematical language, and its characters are triangles, circles, and other geometrical figures; without these it is humanly impossible to understand a word of it, and one wanders in a dark labyrinth.”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “Who would set a limit to the mind? Who would dare assert that we know all there is to be known?”
Galileo Galilei Quote: “I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with senses, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use and by some other means to give us knowledge which we can attain by them.”
