Galileo Galilei born this day, 1564. The quote we know is a paraphrase of a translation from Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems (1632). One more complete translation is:

"For when the sun draws up some vapors here, or warms a plant there, it draws these and warms this as if it had nothing else to do. Even in ripening a bunch of grapes, or perhaps just a single grape, it applies itself so effectively that it could not do more even if the goal of all its affairs were just the ripening of this one grape."

~ Jules Verne, born this day 1828.
