Earth
Earth is the third planet from the Sun and the only object in the Universe known to harbor life. According to radiometric dating and other sources of evidence, Earth formed over 4.5 billion years ago. Earth's gravity interacts with other objects in space, especially the Sun and the Moon, Earth's only natural satellite. Earth revolves around the Sun in 365.26 days, a period known as an Earth year. During this time, Earth rotates about its axis about 366.26 times.
World
The world is the planet Earth and all life upon it, including human civilization. In a philosophical context, the "world" is the whole of the physical Universe, or an ontological world (the "world" of an individual). In a theological context, the world is the material or the profane sphere, as opposed to the celestial, spiritual, transcendent or sacred spheres. "End of the world" scenarios refer to the end of human history, often in religious contexts.
World
The world cannot be translated; it can only be dreamed of and touched.
Dejan Stojanovic in The Creator, “World II” (Sequence: “The Dream Chamber”).
World
All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players.
William Shakespeare, As You Like It (c.1599-1600), Act II, scene 7, line 139.
Earth
For naught so vile that on the earth doth live,
But to the earth some special good doth give.
William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet (1597), Act II, scene iii.
