Tuesday, July 17, 2012: (Carl Sagan quote: the Cosmic Ocean)

“The surface of the Earth is the shore of the cosmic ocean. On this shore, we've learned most of what we know. Recently, we've waded a little way out, maybe ankle-deep, and the water seems inviting. Some part of our being knows this is where we came from. We long to return, and we can, because the cosmos is also within us. We're made of star stuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself.”  ~~~Carl Sagan

What a wonderful picture and quote. Sometimes I forget where I'm from. It's pretty astounding.
