Douglas Adams
“Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun. Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-two million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea.”
Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

“Everybody has a little bit of the sun and moon in them. Everybody has a little bit of man, woman, and animal in them. Darks and lights in them. Everyone is part of a connected cosmic system. Part earth and sea, wind and fire, with some salt and dust swimming in them. We have a universe within ourselves that mimics the universe outside. None of us are just black or white, or never wrong and always right. No one. No one exists without polarities. Everybody has good and bad forces working with them, against them, and within them.

PART SUN AND MOON by Suzy Kassem”

Tyler Kent White
“Never apologize for burning too brightly or collapsing into yourself every night. That is how galaxies are made.”
Tyler Kent White

Sam Harris
“Atheism is not a philosophy; it is not even a view of the world; it is simply an admission of the obvious. In fact, 'atheism' is a term that should not even exist. No one needs to identify himself as a 'non-astrologer' or a 'non-alchemist.' We do not have words for people who doubt that Elvis is still alive or that aliens have traversed the galaxy only to molest ranchers and cattle. Atheism is nothing more than the noises reasonable people make in the presence of unjustified religious beliefs.”
Sam Harris, Letter to a Christian Nation

Nikita Gill
“Those freckles make you seem like a galaxy of stars, just waiting to be explored and loved.”
Nikita Gill

Becky Chambers
“I can wait for the galaxy outside to get a little kinder.”
Becky Chambers, The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet



Of life,
Born from
Of light,
The lens
Of time,
And into
A sea
Of stars

Poetry by Suzy Kassem”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“For the Earth itself is a blossom, she says,
on the star tree,
pale with luminous
ocean leaves.”
Rolf Jacobsen

“Look at the stars. It won't fix the economy. It won't stop wars. It won't give you flat abs, or even help you figure out your relationship. But it's important. It helps you to remember that you and your problems are both infinitesimally small and conversely, that you are a piece of an amazing and vast universe.”

Carl Sagan
“The near side of a galaxy is tens of thousands of light-years closer to us than the far side; thus we see the front as it was tens of thousands of years before the back. But typical events in galactic dynamics occupy tens of millions of years, so the error in thinking of an image of a galaxy as frozen in one moment of time is small.”
Carl Sagan, Cosmos

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

Criss Jami
“People will seek the ends of the galaxy to avoid that which they need most.”
Criss Jami, Healology

Oliver Gaspirtz
“I believe, if there is some sort of higher power, the universe is it. Whenever religious people ask me where the universe came from, I tell them that it has always been here, and was never created. The Big Bang theory is based on the fact that the universe is expanding right now. And if you rewind the tape, the universe appears to be shrinking. If you rewind the tape far enough, eventually the universe must be just one singular point. Or so the theory goes. But what if the universe has not always been expanding? What if it's pulsating, and one pulse takes trillions of years, and right now the universe is inhaling, and before that, trillions of years ago, it was exhaling?”
Oliver Gaspirtz

Nitya Prakash
“She wasn't a constellation. She was a galaxy.”
Nitya Prakash

Dejan Stojanovic
“Entering a cell, penetrating deep as a flying saucer to find a new galaxy would be an honorable task for a new scientist interested more in the inner state of the soul than in outer space.”
Dejan Stojanovic

“At every level in our inventory, nothing seems special about our Earth, our Sun, our Galaxy, our Local Group. Evidently, mediocrity reigns throughout. Such is our niche in the Universe.”
Eric Chaisson, Epic of Evolution: Seven Ages of the Cosmos

Howard Tayler
“The way you blunder from one catastrophe to the next, it's a wonder the whole galaxy doesn't hate you.

The galaxy is a big place, General. You provincial military types don't get far enough out to really see that.
-General Tagon & Captain Kevyn Andreyasn”
Howard Tayler, Resident Mad Scientist

“I'm the girl who's going to save the damn galaxy.”

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

Munia Khan
“We must remember that the sun is a star, but not all the stars are the sun”
Munia Khan

Sahara Sanders
“Next morning, Emma had more of unusual impressions, from the nightdream she saw before the moment she woke up:

The girl flew inside some darkness, feeling really tired; soon, she decided to have a nap laying onto… some Galaxy! She was herself as big as the Universe… Or was it she the part of that macrocosm?”
Sahara Sanders, INDIGO DIARIES: A Series of Novels

“For us ambitious galactic travelers, exploration of other galaxies in person will forever be a dream.”
Rajesh`, Random Cosmos

“I live on the planet Crazy in the solar system of Delusion in the galaxy of Insanity.”

“Eyes fascinate me! They have always enamored me. From the begining of my writing days, my initiation happened with the eyes of people around me. Knowingly or unknowingly, being a writer, I started getting involved in looking into the eyes of people I met. This became an obsession with me! I would stare into the eyes of people. This fascination with eyes has gradually transformed into research for me. I study eyes going deeply into them. I look into eyes and fathom the inner thoughts of the person. The look in the eyes gives me ideas about the hidden meanings. The secrets of a person's life. Th innermost feelings and desires of people. The hidden thoughts and feelings of people I meet reveal myriad things about the person. The eyes reveal a cornucopia of unsaid things. The innocence, the flirtations, and the naughtiness all emanate from the eyes. Eyes are a world onto themselves! And I am just beging to enjoy this voyage into the Galaxy of eyes!”
Avijeet Das

“I am the Constellation of my own”

Ahmed Salah Al-Mahdi
“Humanity is about to face the final great filter, the great filter of devastating war. Either we will emerge as a peaceful and powerful race ready the conquer the Galaxy, or we will perish and extinct, leaving the earth a dead rock in the vast endless space.”
Ahmed Salah Al Mahdi
