• This most beautiful system of the sun, planets and comets could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful Being. And if the fixed stars are the centres of other like systems, these, being formed by the like wise counsel, must be all subject to the dominion of One; especially since the light of the fixed stars is of the same nature with the light of the sun.

    Sir Isaac Newton (2016). “Delphi Collected Works of Sir Isaac Newton (Illustrated)”, p.1023, Delphi Classics
