A quote by Galileo Galilei, 1564 - 1642
- The deeper I go in considering the vanities of popular reasoning, the lighter and more foolish I find them. What greater stupidity can be imagined than that of calling jewels, silver, and gold "precious," and earth and soil "base"?
Galileo Galilei - Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems (1632)
