#1. Elen sila lumenn' omentielvo, a star shines on the hour of our meeting. - Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
Astronomy And Universe quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#2. The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. - Author: Carl Sagan
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Carl Sagan
#3. Astronomers say the universe is finite, which is a comforting thought for those people who can't remember where they leave things. - Author: Woody Allen
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Woody Allen
#4. I'm astounded by people who want to 'know' the universe when it's hard enough to find your way around Chinatown. - Author: Woody Allen
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Woody Allen
#5. How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, "This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant?" Instead they say, "No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way." A religion, old or new, that stressed the magnificence of the Universe as revealed by modern science might be able to draw forth reserves of reverence and awe hardly tapped by the conventional faiths. - Author: Carl Sagan
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Carl Sagan
#6. The last word of the Northmen before their entry in the larger world of Southern culture, their last independent guess at the secret of the Universe, is given in the Twilight of the Gods. As far as it goes, and as a working theory, it is absolutely impregnable. It is the assertion of the individual freedom against all the terrors and temptations of the world. It is absolute resistance, perfect because without hope. - Author: W. P. Ker
Astronomy And Universe quotes by W. P. Ker
#7. Of course things might have gone roughly in the past, but the past is over and cannot touch you unless you hold on to it. Right now, in this moment, the universe is responding not to your past but to the truth of who you are, always were, and always will be. - Author: Marianne Williamson
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Marianne Williamson
#8. I take a lot of inspiration from the nature of the universe and visualize my work as a direct or indirect reflection of life, inside and around us. - Author: Jeet Aulakh
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Jeet Aulakh
#9. When you're a kid, you don't think about big stuff that could change your life. You think about small things that might terrify you –like a bad report card or missing a goal in front of all your friends or your friends no longer wanting to play with you. Because that's the biggest stuff you know. The biggest disappointments are all tied to this small little universe of yours, because bigger things cannot fit into a small universe. If you wanted bigger things in there you needed to have more room –or make more room. Perhaps you thought about your parents or your pets dying, which was rare. But all you knew was you would be terribly sad and lonely. And on those occasions when people or pets actually died, someone usually came along and distracted you from feeling too much of your actual feelings. Grownups did that –they never left you alone to feel alone or think alone too much. They tended to think you are too small to know how to think and feel in big heaps, so they took parts of your heap onto themselves. To help – but in the long run –it doesn't help at all. Because if you do not see, or feel or think, or taste the bitter things in life, you don't know they exist. You have not seen enough of the world to know how terrible it could be. And unfortunately for Sam, this inability to process change persisted into adulthood. - Author: Adelheid Manefeldt
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Adelheid Manefeldt
#10. I have reveled in my littleness and irresponsibility. It has relieved me of the harassing desire to live, I feel content to live dangerously, indifferent to my fate; I have discovered I am a fly, that we are all flies, that nothing matters. It's a great load off my life, for I don't mind being such a micro-organism - to me the honour is sufficient of belonging to the universe - such a great universe, so grand a scheme of things. Not even Death can rob me of that honour. For nothing can alter the fact that I have lived; I have been I, if for ever so short a time. And when I am dead, the matter which composes my body is indestructible - and eternal, so that come what may to my "Soul," my dust will always be going on, each separate atom of me playing its separate part - I shall still have some sort of a finger in the Pie. When I am dead, you can boil me, burn me, drown me, scatter me - but you cannot destroy me: my little atoms would merely deride such heavy vengeance. Death can do no more than kill you. - Author: W.N.P. Barbellion
Astronomy And Universe quotes by W.N.P. Barbellion
#11. Gradually, at various points in our childhoods, we discover different forms of conviction. There's the rock-hard certainty of personal experience ("I put my finger in the fire and it hurt,"), which is probably the earliest kind we learn. Then there's the logically convincing, which we probably come to first through maths, in the context of Pythagoras's theorem or something similar, and which, if we first encounter it at exactly the right moment, bursts on our minds like sunrise with the whole universe playing a great chord of C Major. - Author: Philip Pullman
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Philip Pullman
#12. Let us remember with humility the loneliness of being man in a universe we do not understand and the vulnerability of the human condition. The animals could do very well without us, but we cannot do without them. - Author: Gerald Carson
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Gerald Carson
#13. Is it not evident, in these last hundred years (when the Study of Philosophy has been the business of all the Virtuosi in Christendome) that almost a new Nature has been revealed to us? that more errours of the School have been detected, more useful Experiments in Philosophy have been made, more Noble Secrets in Opticks, Medicine, Anatomy, Astronomy, discover'd, than in all those credulous and doting Ages from Aristotle to us? So true it is that nothing spreads more fast than Science, when rightly and generally cultivated. - Author: John Dryden
Astronomy And Universe quotes by John Dryden
#14. For all its beauty, honesty, and effectiveness at improving the human condition, science demands a terrible price - that we accept what experiments tell us about the universe, whether we like it or not. It's about consensus and teamwork and respectful critical argument, working with, and through, natural law. It requires that we utter, frequently, those hateful words - 'I might be wrong.' - Author: David Brin
Astronomy And Universe quotes by David Brin
#15. Delirium: You use that word so much. Responsibilities. Do you ever think about what that means? I mean, what does it mean to you? In your head?
Dream: Well, I use it to refer that area of existence over which I exert a certain amount of control or influence. In my case, the realm and action of dreaming.
Delirium: Hump. It's more than that. The things we do make echoes. S'pose, f'rinstance, you stop on a street corner and admire a brilliant fork of lightning
ZAP! Well for ages after people and things will stop on that very same corner, stare up at the sky. They wouldn't even know what they were looking for. Some of them might see a ghost bolt of lightning in the street. Some of them might even be killed by it. Our existence deforms the universe. THAT'S responsibility. - Author: Neil Gaiman
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Neil Gaiman
#16. When people tell you that this
venerable firm or private investor invested X millions of dollars in
that entity and that it is a good investment, be skeptical and stay open
to the option of running as far as you can in the opposite direction.
We have all seen the biggest names on Wall Street along with the
largest sovereign wealth funds on the planet make the dumbest investments
ever made. Do your due diligence; ask the right questions, and
most important, check out the character of the people involved unless
you want to end up being prey to another master of the universe à
la Bernie Madoff. - Author: Ziad K. Abdelnour
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Ziad K. Abdelnour
#17. It is amazing that, though I am small and ungifted and barely educated, even I can appreciate the scale of the universe. And from this perch in space, for this moment at least, it seems unimportant whether someone made it, or if it made itself. - Author: Stephanie Oakes
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Stephanie Oakes
#18. I look into Julie's face. Not just at it, but into it. Every pore, every freckle, every faint gossamer hair. And then the layers beneath them. The flesh and bones, the blood and brain, all the way down to the unknowable energy that swirls in her core, the life force, the soul, the fiery will that makes her more than meat, coursing through every cell and binding them together in millions to form her. Who is she, this girl? What is she? She is everything. Her body contains the history of life, remembered in chemicals. Her mind contains the history of the universe, remembered in pain, in joy and sadness, hate and hope and bad habits, every thought of God, past-present-future, remembered, felt, and hoped for all at once. - Author: Isaac Marion
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Isaac Marion
#19. He who never looks up to a living God, to a heavenly presence, loses the power of perceiving that presence, and the universe slowly turns into a dead machine, clashing and grinding on, without purpose or end. If the light within us be darkness, how great is that darkness! - Author: James Freeman Clarke
Astronomy And Universe quotes by James Freeman Clarke
#20. Word it as softly as you please, the spirit of patriotism is the spirit of the dog and wolf. The moment there is a misunderstanding about a boundary line or a hamper of fish or some other squalid matter, see patriotism rise, and hear him split the universe with is war-whoop. The spirit of patriotism being in its nature jealous and selfish, is just in man's line, it comes natural to him - he can live up to all its requirements to the letter; but the spirit of Christianity is not in its entirety possible to him. - Author: Mark Twain
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Mark Twain
#21. I want to put a ding in the universe. - Author: Steve Jobs
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Steve Jobs
#22. Stories are the things people use to give the universe a shape ... there is little difference between a folktale, a religous revelation, and a scientific theor - Author: Tad Williams
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Tad Williams
#23. But what is more, if we have succeeded in adding to the basic understanding of our universe and ourselves, we will have made a contribution to the totality of human culture. - Author: Haldan Keffer Hartline
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Haldan Keffer Hartline
#24. While the Baroque rules of Chess could only have been created by humans, the rules of Go are so elegant, organic, and rigorously logical that if intelligent life forms exist elsewhere in the universe, they almost certainly play Go. - Author: Emanuel Lasker
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Emanuel Lasker
#25. Everyone has trouble accepting the fact he will disappear unheard of and unnoticed in an indifferent universe, and everyone wants to make himself into a universe of words before it's too late ... - Author: Milan Kundera
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Milan Kundera
#26. I am kissing her for a reason that transcends want and need, that feels elemental to our existence, a molecular component on which our
universe will be built. - Author: David Levithan
Astronomy And Universe quotes by David Levithan
#27. Booze and boys, ain't nothing in the universe that'll make a girl stupid faster. - Author: Lois Greiman
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Lois Greiman
#28. What if they found a trapdoor out of this dead universe? A hole? A black hole? A place where the tyranny of time and space couldn't reach? - Author: John C. Wright
Astronomy And Universe quotes by John C. Wright
#29. And outside my skin, an infinity illuminated by a billion stars.
The beauty of the universe in the grandest and smallest things.
This is a good place to die. - Author: Amie Kaufman
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Amie Kaufman
#30. She now discovered amidst them, the poet's flights of fancy, and the historian's seldom pleasing - ever instructive page. The first may transmit to posterity the records of a sublime genius, which once flashed in strong, but transient rays, through the tenement of clay it was given a moment to inhabit: and though the tenement decayed and the spirit fled, the essence of a mind which darted through the universe to cull each created and creative image to enrich an ever-varying fancy, is thus snatched from oblivion, and retained, spite of nature, amidst the mortality from which it has struggled, and is freed. The page of the historian can monarchs behold, and not offer up the sceptre to be disencumbered of the ponderous load that clogs their elevation! Can they read of armies stretch upon the plain, provinces laid waste, and countries desolated, and wish to be the mortal whose vengeance, or whose less fierce, but fatal decision sent those armies forth! - Author: Mary Charlton
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Mary Charlton
#31. The final conclusion of absurdist reasoning is, in fact, the repudiation of suicide and the acceptance of the desperate encounter between human inquiry and the silence of the universe. Suicide would mean the end of this encounter, and absurdist reasoning considers that it could not consent to this without negating its own premises. - Author: Albert Camus
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Albert Camus
#32. Now, almost one hundred years later, it is difficult to fully appreciate how much our picture of the universe has changed in the span of a single human lifetime.
As far as the scientific community in 1917 was concerned, the universe was static and eternal, and consisted of a one single galaxy, our Milky Way, surrounded by vast, infinite, dark, and empty space.
This is, after all, what you would guess by looking up at the night sky with your eyes, or with a small telescope, and at the time there was little reason to suspect otherwise. - Author: Lawrence M. Krauss
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Lawrence M. Krauss
#33. That's what it feels like when you touch me. Like millions of tiny universes being born and then dying in the space between your finger and my skin. Sometimes I forget. - Author: Iain Thomas
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Iain Thomas
#34. Teilhard merely seems to set the problem of man, as the utopian sees it, on lofty heights; yet, hi terminology, which mixes archeology, sociology, biology, astronomy, and a vulgarized theology, can, in fact, be translated at every turn into the language of collectivism and of totalitarian polices. - Author: Thomas Molnar
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Thomas Molnar
#35. The environment most realistically capable of giving rise to life, whether here or anywhere else in the universe, is alkaline hydrothermal vents. Such vents constrain cells to make use of natural proton gradients, and ultimately to generate their own. - Author: Nick Lane
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Nick Lane
#36. If cathedrals had been universities If dungeons of the Inquisition had been laboratories If Christians had believed in character instead of creed If they had taken from the bible only that which is GOOD and thrown away the wicked and absurd If temple domes had been observatories If priests had been philosophers If missionaries had taught useful arts instead of bible lore If astrology had been astronomy If the black arts had been chemistry If superstition had been science If religion had been humanity The world then would be a heaven filled with love, and liberty and joy - Author: Robert Green Ingersoll
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Robert Green Ingersoll
#37. When you tour with a band, you're just out there, and it's just you guys. That's your little universe. If you do a play, it's the same deal. That becomes your world, for the cast and crew. - Author: Katey Sagal
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Katey Sagal
#38. She says that is exactly what she's crying about. That everything is all right. That the world isn't ending. That we'll never tell each other how we really feel because everything is okay. Okay enough to just sit around, being okay. Okay enough that we forget we don't have long, that it's late, late in this universe, and at some point in the future, it's not going to be okay. - Author: Charles Yu
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Charles Yu
#39. Now is not the time to shrink from the challenge of saving our only home in the universe. Now is not the time to pull into ourselves, retreating into either survivalist or escapist mode. To the contrary, this is the time for titans, not turtles. Now is the time to open our arms, expand our horizons, and dream big. Big problems require big solutions. - Author: Van Jones
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Van Jones
#40. Out of all the ridiculous religion stories - which are greatly, wonderfully ridiculous - the silliest one I've ever heard is, 'Yeah, there's this big, giant universe, and it's expanding, and it's all going to collapse on itself, and we're all just here, just 'cuz. Just 'cuz.' That to me, is the most ridiculous explanation ever. - Author: Trey Parker
Astronomy And Universe quotes by Trey Parker
