I cringe every time I see this quote along with Galileo’s name or picture accompanied by it with a gajillion notes.

As much as I love Galileo and the work he did put out, these are not his words. This line is an excerpt from “The Old Astronomer”, or “The Old Astronomer to His Pupil” written solely by poet Sarah Williams (1837–1868).

I love poems as much as the next person, even more so when it expresses the night and stars so creatively, but there’s already enough wrongfully cited publishing done by women attributed to the men of history.. Let’s at the very least give her credit for what she did and quit dedicating artwork, doodles, T-shirts, paintings towards the wrong person.
