At rest, however, in the middle of everything is the sun.

Finally we shall place the Sun himself at the center of the Universe.

We regard it as a certainty that the earth,
enclosed between poles, is bounded by a spherical surface.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

Yet if anyone believes that the earth rotates,
surely he will hold that its motion is natural,
not violent.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

So far as hypotheses are concerned, let no one expect
anything certain from astronomy,
which cannot furnish it, lest he accept as the truth
ideas conceived for another purpose,
and depart from this study a greater fool than when he entered it.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

I shall now recall to mind that the motion of the heavenly bodies is circular,
since the motion appropriate to a sphere is rotation in a circle.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

In so many and such important ways, then,
do the planets bear witness to the earth's mobility.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

So, influenced by these advisors and this hope,
I have at length allowed my friends to publish the work,
as they had long besought me to do.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

Therefore, when I considered this carefully,
the contempt which I had to fear because of the novelty
and apparent absurdity of my view,
nearly induced me to abandon utterly the work I had begun.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

Therefore I would not have it unknown to Your Holiness,
the the only thing which induced me to look for another
way of reckoning the movements of the heavenly bodies
was that I knew that mathematicians by no means agree
in their investigation thereof.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

Not a few other very eminent and scholarly men made the same request,
urging that I should no longer through fear refuse
to give out my work for the common benefit of students of Mathematics.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

To know that we know what we know, and to know that
we do not know what we do not know,
that is true knowledge.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

Although all the good arts serve to draw man's mind
away from vices and lead it toward better things,
this function can be more fully performed by this art,
which also provides extraordinary intellectual pleasure.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

Therefore, in the course of the work I have followed this plan:
I describe in the first book all the positions of the
orbits together with the movements which I ascribe to the Earth,
in order that this book might contain,
as it were, the general scheme of the universe.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

Moreover, since the sun remains stationary,
whatever appears as a motion of the sun is really due
rather to the motion of the earth.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

Accordingly, since nothing prevents the earth from moving,
I suggest that we should now consider also whether several motions suit it,
so that it can be regarded as one of the planets.
For, it is not the center of all the revolutions.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

I can easily conceive, most Holy Father,
that as soon as some people learn that in this book
which I have written concerning the revolutions of the heavenly bodies,
I ascribe certain motions to the Earth,
they will cry out at once that I and my theory should be rejected.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

The massive bulk of the earth does indeed shrink to
insignificance in comparison with the size of the heavens.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

More stars in the north are seen not to set,
while in the south certain stars are no longer seen to rise.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

Pouring forth its seas everywhere, then,
the ocean envelops the earth and fills its deeper chasms.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

The earth also is spherical, since it presses upon
its center from every direction.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

Those who know that the consensus of many centuries
has sanctioned the conception that the earth remains
at rest in the middle of the heavens as its center,
would, I reflected, regard it as an insane pronouncement
if I made the opposite assertion that the earth moves.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

I am aware that a philosopher's ideas are not subject
to the judgment of ordinary persons,
because it is his endeavour to seek the truth in all things,
to the extent permitted to human reason by God.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

For it is the duty of an astronomer to compose the
history of the celestial motions through careful and expert study.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

Therefore, having obtained the opportunity from these sources,
I too began to consider the mobility of the earth.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

Those things which I am saying now may be obscure,
yet they will be made clearer in their proper place.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

The earth together with its surrounding waters must
in fact have such a shape as its shadow reveals,
for it eclipses the moon with the arc of a perfect circle.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

For I am not so enamoured of my own opinions that I
disregard what others may think of them.
- Nicolaus Copernicus

with the individual's own reason and critical analysis.

Although the world is full of suffering,
it is full also of the overcoming of it.
My optimism, then, does not rest on the absence of evil,
but on a glad belief in the preponderance of good
and a willing effort always to cooperate with the good,
that it may prevail.
- Helen Keller

We must free ourselves of the hope

whether to be like everybody else the rest of your life,
or to make a virtue of your peculiarities.

The fears are paper tigers.
You can do anything you decide to do.
You can act to change and control your life;

It will gratify some people and astonish the rest.

not as an old man in the sky.
I believe that what people call God
is something in all of us.
I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha
and all the rest said was right.
It's just that the translations have gone wrong.

and accept all the rest of life
just as it comes.

perhaps your only enemy.

I rest in the light of forgiveness.
I forgive myself and others for that
which is done (and better left undone)
and also that which is not done (and better if done).
I give myself permission to enjoy this moment without guilt.
I freely release all uncertainty, regret, and fear.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

Life is a balance between rest and movement.
- Osho

Neither should a ship rely on one small anchor,
nor should life rest on a single hope.
- Epictetus

Make the best use of what is in your power,
and take the rest as it happens.
- Epictetus

No one ever found wisdom without also being a fool.
Writers, alas, have to be fools in public,
while the rest of the human race can cover its tracks.

when the rest of the world walks out.

To others, something amazing, extraordinary, or unexpected.
To me, Life is a miracle.

no reason for humanity, the universe, or the laws of Nature.
Energy, mass, gravity and the rest of existence
are all so improbable.

Magic is natural to Wizards,
and only a little harder for the rest of us.

Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort
of feeling safe with a person;
having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words,
but to pour them all out, just as they are,
chaff and grain together,
knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them,
keep what is worth keeping, and then,
with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.
- George Eliot
