Dr. Carl Sagan in Wikipedia
If you want to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first create the universe.
Dr. Carl Sagan
We are like butterflies who flutter for a day and think its forever.
It is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.
Science is a way of thinking much more than it is a body of knowledge.
We are the product of 4.5 billion years of fortuitous, slow biological evolution. There is no reason to think that the evolutionary process has stopped. Man is a transitional animal. He is not the climax of creation.
Mistakes show us what we need to learn.
(August 05, 1949 - June 14, 2000)
Our current census, as of today, is 77. We're working on getting three more people.
It's a troublesome world. All the people who're in it
are troubled with troubles almost every minute.
You ought to be thankful, a whole heaping lot,
for the places and people you're lucky you're not.
