"Certain people, as soon as they hear that in this book On the Revolutions of the Spheres of the Universe I ascribe movement to the earthly globe, will cry out that, holding such views, I should at once be hissed off the stage. I am not so pleased with my own work that I should fail duly to weigh the judgment which others may pass thereon; and though I know that the speculations of a philosopher are far removed from the judgment of the multitude -- for his aim is to seek truth ... -- yet I hold that opinions which are quiet erroneous should be avoided."
(Lived 1473-1543)
