Johannes Kepler Quote

If the attractive virtue of the moon extends as far as the earth, it follows with greater reason that the attractive virtue of the earth extends as far as the moon and much farther; and, in short, nothing which consists of earthly substance anyhow constituted although thrown up to any height, can ever escape the powerful operation of this attractive virtue.


As quoted in Kepler by Walter William Bryant (1920) - Astronomia nova (1609)
