because he knows
she fears the dark.
Whenever sadness pays her a visit
he paints galaxies
on the back of her hands.”
Alaska Gold, Growing Light

Kamal Ravikant

Kamal Ravikant, Live Your Truth

Owl City

When the galaxies crossed
And the sun went dark.
Dear God, you're the only North Star
I would follow this far.”

Michael Shermer
“Finally, from what we now know about the cosmos, to think that all this was created for just one species among the tens of millions of species who live on one planet circling one of a couple of hundred billion stars that are located in one galaxy among hundreds of billions of galaxies, all of which are in one universe among perhaps an infinite number of universes all nestled within a grand cosmic multiverse, is provincially insular and anthropocentrically blinkered. Which is more likely? That the universe was designed just for us, or that we see the universe as having been designed just for us?”
Michael Shermer, Why Darwin Matters: The Case Against Intelligent Design

Owl City
“Oh telescope,
Keep your eye on my only hope,
Lest I blink and be swept off the narrow road,
Hercules, you've got nothing to say to me,
'Cause you're not the blinding light that I need.
For He is the saving grace of the galaxies!”
Owl City

Virgil Kalyana Mittata Iordache
“How I wish I was like the water,
Flowing so freely with every drop
Let my every emotion wonder,
No need to start, nor even stop
How I wish I was like the fire,
Burning with every flame up
Leaving a trace of hot desire
As a Phoenix raises its' wings up
How I wish I was like the earth,
Raising each flower from the ground
Seeing the beauty of death and birth
And then returning to the ground
How I wish I was like the wind,
Hearing each whisper, sound and thought
A lonesome and wandering little wind,
Shattering all that has been sought
Oh, how I wish I was where you are,
Not separated by empty space, so far
It seems like we're galaxies apart,
But we find hope within our heart
And how I wish I was all of the above,
So I can come below and yet forget,
The beauty of angels which come down like a dove
And demons who love with no regret.”
Virgil Kalyana Mittata Iordache

Sanober  Khan
“Love, be

as the flickering
blue flame
of night

as the fully-awoken

beneath cobwebs
of passing clouds

amidst chanting

as my blanket

big enough
to illuminate a hundred
thousand billion galaxies

and just small enough to fit
into my embrace.”
Sanober Khan, Turquoise Silence

Iain Banks
Why had he done it? Why couldn't it just not have happened? Why didn't they have time-travel, why couldn't he go back and stop it happening? Ships that could circumnavigate the galaxy in a few years, and count every cell in your body from light-years off, but he wasn't able to go back one miserable day and alter one tiny, stupid, idiotic, shameful decision...”
Iain M. Banks, The Player of Games

Owl City
“Dear God your the only north star I'd follow this far!”
Owl City


Look deep in the mirror
And say: 'I LOVE YOU'
And immediately
An electric current will
Ripple throughout your soul
And burst through your eyes
Like shooting stars
Dancing across the skies
In ecstasy.
To tell your soul you love it -
Is like remembering
After being in a coma
For a hundred years.
Your face will beam the light
Of a hundred galaxies.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Sanober  Khan
“A single poem, alone
can turn tides
scatter galaxies
and burst forth with rivers
from paradise.”
Sanober Khan, A Thousand Flamingos

Gene Wolfe
“Sometimes driven aground by the photon storms, by the swirling of the galaxies, clockwise and counterclockwise, ticking with light down the dark sea-corridors lined with our silver sails, our demon-haunted sails, our hundred-league masts as fine as threads, as fine as silver needles sewing the threads of starlight, embroidering the stars on black velvet, wet with the winds of Time that go racing by. The bone in her teeth! The spume, the flying spume of Time, cast up on these beaches where old sailors can no longer keep their bones from the restless, the unwearied universe. Where has she gone? My lady, the mate of my soul? Gone across the running tides of Aquarius, of Pisces, of Aries. Gone. Gone in her little boat, her nipples pressed against the black velvet lid, gone, sailing away forever from the star-washed shores, the dry shoals of the habitable worlds. She is her own ship, she is the figurehead of her own ship, and the captain. Bosun, Bosun, put out the launch! Sailmaker, make a sail! She has left us behind. We have left her behind. She is in the past we never knew and the future we will not see. Put out more sail, Captain for the universe is leaving us behind…”
Gene Wolfe, The Citadel of the Autarch

“You hold the universe in you. You hold the galaxies. Dig deeper. Find them.”

“When your skin touched my skin
And your lips touched my lips
The whole Universe paused!

And when your Soul
Collided with my Soul
That's when newer Stars
And Galaxies were formed!”
Avijeet Das

Akshay Vasu
“Let me inside your soul. Inside that abandoned paradise. And let me walk on that road to your heart. Let me see through that window you hold inside. Through which I can stare into space, where the waves of oceans, filled with stars are hitting the shores of galaxies. I will seize everything that I see with my words. And I promise you, I will make you immortal.”
Akshay Vasu, The Abandoned Paradise: Unraveling the beauty of untouched thoughts and dreams

Christophe Galfard
“Even today, more than eighty years after Oort's bold guess, we still don't have a clue what this dark matter is made of. We know it exists. We know where it is. We have maps of its presence within and around galaxies throughout the universe. We even have stringent constraints on what it is not, but we have no clue what it is. And yes, its presence is overwhelming: for every one kilogram of ordinary matter made out of neutrons and protons and electrons, there are five kilograms of dark matter, made out of who-knows-what.”
Christophe Galfard, The Universe in Your Hand: A Journey Through Space, Time, and Beyond

Friedrich Nietzsche
“The obscurities in my soul terrify galaxies.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, Writings from the Late Notebooks

“Dwell on joy of your dreams. Watch the galaxies, and you see yourself rushing with them.”

C.A.A. Savastano
“It is quite the big galaxy, perspective is ever a good thing. It is small compared to the Universe, on of an estimated trillion, more perspective.”
C.A.A. Savastano

Rosella Testa
“Magic is the first language of the world. It was the language before words, before mathematics. Humanity can accept concepts like space travel to other galaxies, and yet magic can only be real in the minds of those who believe it, or in the imagination of children.”
Rosella Testa, The Lost Pleiades: Seven Sisters and the Sibyls

Iris Murdoch
“Cambridge by moonlight was light blue and brownish black. There was no mist here and a great vault of clear stars hung over the city with an intent luxurious brilliance. It was the sort of night when one knows of other galaxies. My long shadow glided before me on the pavement. Although it was not yet eleven o'clock the place seemed empty and I moved through it like a mysterious and lonely harlequin in a painting: like an assassin.”
Iris Murdoch, A Severed Head

Nitya Prakash
“We fall in love with unrequited things. like maybe the universe will love us back, but she has too many other galaxies burning in her hands.”
Nitya Prakash

Nitya Prakash
“We gave each other so much space that eventually there were a few galaxies between us.”
Nitya Prakash

Torron-Lee Dewar
“Let your mind be as big as the universe. Infinite.”
Torron-Lee Dewar, Creativity is Everything

Agnes Chew
“When I was a child, a teacher once said that there existed 195 countries in the world. Astronomers lay claim to there being eight planets in our solar system, of the hundreds of solar systems that lie in our galaxy, of the billions of galaxies that exist in our single universe. On still nights when sleep forgets to steal me away, I think about all the worlds that have yet to be discovered by astronomers – vast, immense worlds that continue to remain hidden within each and every one of us; vast, immense worlds that continue to escape the consciousness of others.”
Agnes Chew, The Desire for Elsewhere

“It is said by many people that the power of the human mind is 'unlimited'. But, I do not agree with it because we cannot think beyond what we see around us. It means that the 'limitation' is 'in-built'. Indeed, we can go to space, discover planets or galaxies, but we cannot go beyond all these things. So, the 'limitation' of our thinking-process is natural and normal!”
Md. Ziaul Haque

C.A.A. Savastano
“It is quite the big galaxy, perspective is ever a good thing. It is small compared to the Universe, one of an estimated trillion, more perspective.”
C.A.A. Savastano

“You are floating on this blue planet amongst millions of galaxies. Anything still impossible here?”
Hiral Nagda
