MAGELLAN
[ Also see Explorers ]

It is a blessed thing that in every age some one has had individuality enough and courage enough to stand by his own convictions,--some one who had the grandeur to say his say. I believe it was Magellan who said, "The church says the earth is is flat; but I have seen its shadow on the moon, and I have more confidence even in a shadow than in the church." On the prow of of his ship were disobedience, defiance, scorn, and success.
      - Robert Green Ingersoll, Individuality,
        Magellan quotation probably incorrectly attributed to him by Ingersoll
