"It was only a sunny smile, and little it cost in the giving, but like morning light it scattered the night and made the day worth living."
- F. Scott Fitzgerald
"Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves."
