“Once we've learned enough about the universe we will admit to ourselves that we will never know everything.”
Jack Kirby

“All life on Earth is subject to the rumbles and rockings of the parent stucture which has no control over the disastrous effects of its stresses and strains on whatever thrives on its surface. The ambitions and dreams of men are irrelevant to this planetary giant which pursues its own way in its own manner. Man is its child, tenant and still, to this date, its captive.”
Jack Kirby

“I'm OMAC! Evacuate this section! I'm going to destroy it!”
Jack Kirby
