Actually, it was a paraphrase of a quote by Heinlein. The sage from Butler, one of the Big Three in Science Fiction, the "dean of science fiction writers", Kansas Citian, Annapolis grad and outspoken atheist.
Your clarification is noted.

"Once you get to earth orbit, you're halfway to anywhere in the solar system." Robert A. Heinlein
