New quotes

We can’t reach old age by another man’s road. My habits protect my life, but they would assassinate you.

Mark Twain

We hunger for significance for signs that our personal existence is of special meaning to the universe. To that end, we are all to eager to deceive ourselves and others to discern a sacred image in a grilled cheese sandwich or find a divine warning in a comet.

Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey (movie)

Science works on the frontier between knowledge and ignorance. We’re not afraid to admit what we don’t know. There’s no shame in that. The only shame is to pretend that we have all the answers.

Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey (movie)

We were born into a mystery, one that has haunted us since at least as long as we've been human. We awakened on this tiny world beneath a blanket of stars like an abandoned baby left on a doorstep without a note to explain where we came from, who we are, how our universe came to be, and with no idea how to end our cosmic isolation. We’ve had to figure it all out for ourselves.

Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey (movie)

Science is a co-operative enterprise, spanning the generations. It`s the passing of a torch from teacher to student to teacher. A community of minds reaching back to antiquity and forward to the stars.
