“The atoms, the molecules in your body, are traceable to the crucibles in the centers of stars that manufactured these elements over its lifespan. When unstable, on death, exploding its enriched guts across the galaxy. Scattering it into gas clouds that would ultimately collapse and make a star and have the right ingredients to make planets and people. Which means we are part of this Universe. Not only are we a part of the Universe, but the Universe is in us. That’s beautiful.”
~ Neil deGrasse Tyson
"We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity."
~ Paulo Coelho
"Be humble for you are made of earth, be noble for you are made of stars."
~ Serbian proverb
"You may think I’m small, but I have a universe in my mind."
~ Yoko Ono
"The universe is a vast system of exchange. Every artery of it is in motion, throbbing with reciprocity, from the planet to the rotting leaf. The vapor climbs the sunbeam, and comes back in blessings upon the exhausted herb. The exhalation of the plant is wafted to the ocean. And so goes on the beautiful commerce of nature. And all because of dissimilarity-because not one thing is sufficient in itself, but calls for the assistance of something else, and repays by a contribution in turn."
~ E.F. Chapin
"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience."
~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
"Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere."
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
~ Albert Einstein
"All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up."
~ Pablo Picasso
"We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are."
~ Anais Nin
"Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you will land amongst the stars."
~ Jill McLemore
"Even after all this time, the sun never says to the earth, ‘You owe Me.’ Look what happens with a love like that, it lights the whole sky."
"Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything."
