some people turn sad awfully young. no special reason, it seems, but they seem almost to be born that way. they bruise easier, tire faster, cry quicker, remember longer and, as i say, get sadder younger than anyone else in the world. i know, for i'm one of them

the way carl sagan writes about space is so, so incredibly beautiful

  • the cosmos is all that is or ever was or ever will be. our feeblest contemplations of the cosmos stir us -- there is a tingling in the sping, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation, as if of a distant memory, of falling from a height. we know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries.
  • the surface of the earth is the shore of the cosmic ocean. rom it we have learned most of what we know. recently, we have waded a little out to sea, enough to dampen our toes or, at most, wet our ankles. the water seems inviting. the ocean calls. some part of our being knows this is from where we came. we long to return. these aspirations are not, i think, irreverent, although they may trouble whatever gods may be.
