Great is God our Lord, great is His power and there is no end to His wisdom. Praise Him you heavens, glorify Him, sun and moon and you planets. For out of Him and through Him, and in Him are all things... We know, oh, so little. To Him be the praise, the honor and the glory from eternity.
So prayed the subject of this story, who "humbly credited his genius not to himself, but to God," and who "made the claim that mankind would never be without new phenomena to explore, so great is the diversity, complexity and richness of God's creation" — Johannes Kepler: Father of Celestial Mechanics
