Why isn't the acceleration of an object in Earth's gravity related to the object's mass?

Please, try to explain this effect without physical formulas, but using only logical formulation.

• Comment but not an answer: Actually it is, but when one object is much larger than the other (like the Earth versus a book) then the effect is almost but not quite zero. Why? The force is certainly proportional to the object's mass, but the object's acceleration is also limited by the mass. Push a car and a bicycle with equal force and the bicycle will accelerate much faster. – uhoh Feb 13 at 16:32
• This is more of a physics questions than an earth science one. – Fred Feb 13 at 18:53
• It's impossible to explain without physical formulas. $a = F/m$, hence it is independent of mass. – AtmosphericPrisonEscape Feb 14 at 12:52
