Geography
Geography (from Greek γεωγραφία, geographia, literally "earth description") is a field of science devoted to the study of the lands, the features, the inhabitants, and the phenomena of Earth. The first person to use the word "γεωγραφία" was Eratosthenes (276–194 BC). Geography is an all-encompassing discipline that seeks an understanding of the Earth and its human and natural complexities—not merely where objects are, but how they have changed and come to be.

Duane F. Marble, Professor of Geography, posted this on his office door at SUNY at Buffalo, jestingly misattributing it to Albert Einstein; it has since been quoted as if it were a genuine quote of Einstein, and debunked at sites online and in The Ultimate Quotable Einstein (2010) edited by Alice Calaprice, p. 474.
