Quotation of the Day for December 29, 2009

"I know that I am mortal and the creature of a day; but when I search out the massed wheeling circles of the stars, my feet no longer touch the earth, but, side by side with Zeus himself, I take my fill of ambrosia, the food of the gods."

- Claudius Ptolemy, astronomer, from his Mathematical Syntaxis, also known as the Almagest (c. 150 AD).
