Science Quotes by Jacob Christmann (1 quote)
We are not to think that Jupiter has four satellites given him by nature, in order, by revolving round him, to immortalize the name of the Medici, who first had notice of the observation. These are the dreams of idle men, who love ludicrous ideas better than our laborious and industrious correction of the heavens.Nature abhors so horrible a chaos, and to the truly wise, such vanity is detestable.
— Jacob Christmann
