Cytaty Alfons X Mądry

„Gdybym był obecny przy stworzeniu, dałbym trochę pożytecznych wskazówek dla lepszego urządzenia wszechświata.“

— Alfons X Mądry
Źródło: Henryk Markiewicz, Andrzej Romanowski, Skrzydlate słowa, Warszawa 1990, PIW, s. 16.

„Had I been present at the Creation, I would have given some useful hints for the better ordering of the universe.“

— Alfonso X of Castile
After studying Ptolemy's treatise on astronomy.; reported in Thomas Carlyle, History of Frederick the Great, book ii. chap. vii. Carlyle wrote that this saying of Alfonso about Ptolemy's astronomy, "that it seemed a crank machine; that it was pity the Creator had not taken advice," is still remembered by mankind, — this and no other of his many sayings. If the Lord Almighty had consulted me before embarking on creation thus, I should have recommended something simpler. Quoted/paraphrased by Adam Riess in his Nobel Prize (in Physics 2011) lecture slides on Supernovae Reveal An Accelerating Universe (A Science Adventure Story). <!--http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&ved=0CCQQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nobelprize.org%2Fnobel_prizes%2Fphysics%2Flaureates%2F2011%2Friess-lecture_slides.pdf&ei=UmtoUOXlN8nXtAahmoCQDw&usg=AFQjCNEJJaEdSL2En2TjIaOTiQ5-Gtz-rQ&sig2=iGSgSzY2T-OO8pj-xAAaEw-->
