"If the plane is inclined downwards, the ball is instantly thrown into motion, because the centre of gravity then falls forward of that motion, or the point on which the ball rests." -Comstock 1850

"A quadrant, or one fourth of a circle. The oblique lines indicate various angles with the base. The heavy line indicates the inclination of the earth's axis as compared with the plane of its orbit, which is represented by the base." -Wiswell, 1913

"That the cannon ball is capable of attracting as well as being attracted, may be proved by suspending two balls close to each other by very long cords. In consequence of their attraction, the cords will not hang parallel, but will incline towards each other as they descend...." —Quackenbos 1859

"Suppose the inclined plane, to be two feet from A to B, and one foot from C to B, then, as we have already seen, a power of one pound at P, would balance a weight of two pounds at W." -Comstock 1850

"Suppose two inclined planes, of the same height, with bases of different lenghts; then the weight and power will be to each other as the lenght of the planes." -Comstock 1850

"A force pushing a weight from C to D, only raises it through the perpendicular height, E D, by acting along the whole length of the plane, C D; and if the plane be twice as it is high, one pound at B, acting over the pulley, D, would balance two pounds at A, or any where on the plane; and so of all other quantities and proportions." — Goodrich, 1844

"The power required to force a given weight up an inclined plane, is in proportion to its height, and the length of its base, or in other words, the force must be in proportion to the rapidity of its inclination." -Comstock 1850'

An illustration of an inclined plane pulley. "Let the weight w be started to move p the plane, and let P be the pull in the cord which just keeps up steadily the motion imparted to w. Then id l is the length of the plane and h its vertical height, it is evident that when w rolls the whole distance l, P falls through the same distance since the length of l of cord passes over the pulley." -Britannica, 1891
