Galileo Galilei Quote
“All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.”
This quote is a paraphrase of a conversation between two characters in Galileo's book "Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems" (1632): "SALVIATI: Now you see how easy it is to understand. / SAGREGO: So are all truths, once they are discovered."
