Favorite Nicolaus Quotes

1. "Perhaps you were right after all, my dear Nicolaus; perhaps there is but one god. But if that is true, you have misnamed him. He is Accident, and his priest is man, and that priest's only victim must be at last himself, his poor divided self."
Author: John Edward Williams
2. "There is talk of a new astrologer [Nicolaus Copernicus] who wants to prove that the earth moves and goes around instead of the sky, the sun, the moon, just as if somebody were moving in a carriage or ship might hold that he was sitting still and at rest while the earth and the trees walked and moved. But that is how things are nowadays: when a man wishes to be clever he must . . . invent something special, and the way he does it must needs be the best! The fool wants to turn the whole art of astronomy upside-down. However, as Holy Scripture tells us, so did Joshua bid the sun to stand still and not the earth.[Martin Luther stating his objection to heliocentrism due to his Scripture's geocentrism]"
Author: Martin Luther
3. "He [Nicolaus Steno] told the audience, "Beautiful is what we see. More beautiful is what we understand. Most beautiful is what we do not comprehend."
Author: Mira Bartok

Today's Quote

Es nezinu, kas ir maksla. Makslas spodra zvaigzne ir tik loti iejukusi pareja, ka sasoditi viegli parskatities. Makslai nav ne robežu, nedz ari kadu noteiktu pazimju. Bieži vien maksla sakas tikai tur, kur tiek parkapts kads no tas "mužigajiem" likumiem. Pie makslas reizem nonak, laužoties cauri pavisam nelabiem brikšniem, un noiet tai garam pa vistaisnako un platako celu. Maksla ir loti netaisna. Viscildenaka dvesele var ielikt sava muža darba škistako sajusmas un karstakas sirds asinis, derigakas atzinas un krietnakas pamacibas un radit tikai negaumigas un nederigas blenas. Bet nelietigs škelmis vai pusjucis nelga sagruž kaut ko akstidamies vai pat zaimodams, un raugi – tur ta pekšni iezibas, mužiga nodeviga maksla! Maksla ir untumaina. Reizem ta ilgi nedodas pazistama; nabaga makslinieks nomirst, vilies savos laikabiedros un ari pats sevi, un tad – piepeši vina izputinatos darbus mekle ka lielakos dargumus."
