“Look again at that dot. That’s here, that’s home, that’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every ‘superstar,’ every ‘supreme leader,’ every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there – on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.”

Carl Sagan from his book Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space

  1. Very many thanks, a very eloquent and beautiful description. Just wish all of us could embrace the fact and be less beastly to one another, self now appears to be more important than collective responsibility. Lets hope for a more enlightened future for all of us as hope springs eternal so the saying goes. My very best wishes to you and I hope you attain the life you so richly deserve.
