“No falsehood can last forever. Although it be buttressed by power, gilded by genius, sanctioned by success, believed in by millions, and covered with the awful hoar of many hundreds of years, it must sooner or later die. Men at last discover their delusion, and they rise up to destroy it with a vehemence of indignation proportioned to the length of time it has lasted, and to the depth of hold it has usurped over their hood­winked minds.”

Zetetic Astronomy (1873)
