Quotes

The following are quotes:

“It should be recalled that Gilbert had not mentioned Bruno in that book, but he echoed several of Bruno's beliefs, such as that the earth moves because it is a living animal with a soul, and that it gives parts of its soul to humans, to vivify them, and that the sun, moon, planets, and stars all have souls - and even that god is a soul. Gilbert was active in London at the same time that Bruno lived there, and therefore historians argue that Bruno helped to inspire Gilbert's cosmology. Gilbert died in 1603, but he left a manuscript, On the World, in which he mentioned Bruno three times.”
