„Those who knowingly allow the King to err deserve the same punishment as traitors.“

—  Alfonso X of Castile
Quoted in Diccionario ilustrado de frases célebres y citas literarias (1952), by Vicente Vega.

„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-->

Burn old wood, read old books, drink old wines, have old friends. Literal translation. Variant translations: Old wood to burn! Old wine to drink! Old friends to trust! Old authors to read! —Alonso of Aragon was wont to say in commendation of age, that age appeared to be best in these four things. As quoted in Floresta Española de Apothegmas o Sentencias, by Melchior de Santa Cruz (1576), ii. 1. 20. Alonso of Aragon was wont to say in commendation of age, that age appears to be best in four things, — old wood best to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read. As quoted in Apothegms (1624) by Francis Bacon, 97.
