Learn to win a lady's faith
Nobly, as the thing is high ;
Bravely, as for life and death —
With a loyal gravity.

And 'mong the planets roll,
True to the laws of gravity
That marks its outer pole.

His face is filled with gravity;
His tongue is like a sword;
His presence awes both stout and high,
The world shakes at his word.

And is it insanity?
Nay, this is but the gravity
Of that vast mind,
That, on his Southland's altar wrought
And forged the bolts of warrior thought
Of thunder-kind.

Justice is not settled by legislators and laws—it is in the Soul;
It cannot be varied by statutes, any more than love, pride, the
attraction of gravity, can;

In science:
These models either lack self-gravity, or, in the case of Passot et al. (1995) lack the resolution for self-gravity to become signiﬁcant.
The Dynamical Interstellar Medium: Insights from Numerical Models
The non-anticommutative quantum gravity perturbation theory is ﬁnite for matter-free gravity and for matter interactions.
Non-Anticommutative Quantum Gravity
It follows that the higher order pure gravity loops and loops occurring in gravity-matter interactions will be ﬁnite.
Non-Anticommutative Quantum Gravity
We have developed a perturbative, non-anticommutative quantum gravity formalism by using the ♦-product in the gravity action, wherever products of gravitational ﬁelds and their derivatives occur in the superspace manifold.
Non-Anticommutative Quantum Gravity
If a theory contains linearized gravity and is Lorentz invariant, then it is well known that it must be either the complete generally covariant gravity theory or just the pure linearized theory.

For gravity, 4d Einstein gravity is generated from the multiple copy of the 3d ones, by referring to the two form gravity.

Einstien gravity is shown to be generated from the multiplication of the 3d Einstein gravities.
4d Gauge Theory and Gravity Generated from 3d Ones at High Energy
Different values of rc are interesting from a different perspective. A model with rc ∼ 1059 cm, i.e., with M(5) ∼ 10−3 eV, predicts a deviation from the Newtonian gravity at very small sub-millimeter distances (see detailed discussions in ) where the Newtonian gravity is just being tested experimentally .
