Astronomy Quotes

Quotations
Quote of the Day

Let no one expect anything of certainty from astronomy, lest if anyone take as true that which has been constructed for another use, he go away... a bigger fool than when he came to it.
View quotes by Nicolas Copernicus

View quotes by Alfonso X

Nothing can be more destructive to ambition, and the passion for conquest, than the true system of astronomy. What a poor thing is even the whole globe in comparison of the infinite extent of nature!
View quotes by Bernard Fontenelle

Scientific truth is too beautiful to be sacrificed for the sake of light entertainment or money. Astrology is an aesthetic affront. It cheapens astronomy, like using Beethoven for commercial jingles
View quotes by Richard Dawkins

View quotes by Galileo Galilei
