"I have a friend who's an artist and he's sometimes taken a view which I don't agree with very well..."
Richard Feynman (from Horizon documentary)
"I was called by the universe. It's my life love - I've known this since I was a kid..."
Neil deGrasse Tyson (from Beyond Belief symposium)
"But it's you and I who have to know how nature works. And we are really here on a wonderful threshold of knowledge; the Ascent of Man is always teetering in the balance; there's always a sense of uncertainty as to whether, when man lifts his foot for the next step, it's really going to come down... ahead. And what is ahead of us? At last, the bringing together of all that we've learned in physics and in biology towards an understanding of, where we have come, what man is."
Jacob Bronowski (from The Ascent of Man)
"I'm a collection of organic molecules, called Carl Sagan..."
Carl Sagan (from Cosmos)
"The story I want to tell you is a remarkable story..."
Carolyn Porco (from Atheist Alliance International, 2009)
"What a piece of work is a man! how noble in reason! How infinite in faculty! In form and moving how express and admirable! In action how like an angel! In apprehension how like a god! The beauty of the world! The paragon of animals! And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust?"
William Shakespeare (from Hamlet)
"I saw a small iridescent sphere of almost unbearable brightness..."
Jorge Luis Borges (from The Aleph)
