    I know!!!! I was born on his birthday! (November 10th) Google it!

    I cannot and will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand, I can do no other, so help me God. Amen.

    WG is correct about the 4th quote. As for the first: I can't find any references, but it sounds like it may be Copernicus, or Kepler, or maybe Galileo. The second is from a famous American author: "Read, read, read. Read everything -- trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You'll absorb it. Then write. If it's good, you'll find out. If it's not, throw it out of the window.”

    The third is also a mystery to me.

    Someone else (Stephen King) wrote: “Read, read, read! If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write.”

    You will have to work hard on this one as it is unlikely the quote is accurate learn to use Google and other search engines, some possibilities have been suggested because of their work in astromony but you might have to do some detailed readings of their works
