Johannes Kepler (1571-1630), Astonomer, circa 1612, Giclee Print

Johannes Kepler
b. 12-27-1571; Free Imperial City of Weil der Stadt, near Stuttgart, now Germany
d. 11-15-1630; Regensburg, Electorate of Bavaria

Astronomer, astrologer, mathematician and teacher Johannes Kepler, a key figure in the 17th century scientific revolution, is best remembered for describing the motion of planets around the Sun. His work provided insights to Isaac Newton for the theory of universal gravitation.

Kepler had smallpox as a child and suffered from impaired vision and crippled hands.

FYI ~ Kepler's mother, Katharina, was an herbalist, and who according to Kepler took him to “... a high place to look” at the Great Comet of 1577, was accused of witch craft, and was saved from execution by her son.

Johannes Kepler quotes ~
• “Truth is the daughter of time, and I feel no shame in being her midwife.”
• “We do not ask for what useful purpose the birds do sing, for song is their pleasure since they were created for singing. Similarly, we ought not to ask why the human mind troubles to fathom the secrets of the heavens. The diversity of the phenomena of nature is so great and the treasures hidden in the heavens so rich precisely in order that the human mind shall never be lacking in fresh nourishment.”
• “I much prefer the sharpest criticism of a single intelligent man to the thoughtless approval of the masses.”
• “Nature uses as little as possible of anything.”
• “I feel carried away and possessed by an unutterable rapture over the divine spectacle of heavenly harmony... I write a book for the present time, or for posterity. It is all the same to me. It may wait a hundred years for its readers, as God has also waited six thousand years for an onlooker.”
• “The soul of the newly born baby is marked for life by the pattern of the stars at the moment it comes into the world, unconsciously remembers it, and remains sensitive to the return of configurations of a similar kind.”
