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

“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

A.R. Merrydew
“   ‘I knew it, I knew it, I damn well knew it,’ he shouted. ‘The President was right you’re all infected with this wretched MeMe chromosome even at the dawn of your pathetic little planet’s evolution. You do realise of course there’s no hope for you. It’s all going to be a complete and utter waste of time. You and your little planet are all doomed.”
A.R. Merrydew, Our Blue Orange

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

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

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

Italo Calvino
“...And meanwhile the Galaxy ran through space and left behind those signs old and new and I still hadn't found mine.”
Italo Calvino, Cosmicomics

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

S.G. Blaise
“What do you say to a warmongering emperor who has conquered many worlds and displaced thousands of refugees from their homes in the process? Refugees that sought asylum on Uhna. “It’s uh . . .” I pause. I can’t say it’s an honor to meet him when he arrived at my world prepared to blast the corruption away with his armada, along with anyone who happened to be in his way. I focus on his positive traits and say, “You have a nice beard! It looks well established. May I call you Caderyn?” Caderyn scoffs. “No.”
S.G. Blaise, True Teryn

S.G. Blaise
“Rainbow-colored shimmer washes over me with power. Power that’s not magical but something ancient, before the time of magic.”
S.G. Blaise, Proud Pada

S.G. Blaise
“Some Marauders do do that, but not the smart ones.” Ivy giggles. “I said, doo-doo.”
S.G. Blaise, Proud Pada

“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

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

Melody  Lee
“She’s a galaxy of bright hues,
and her heart contains
a universe of love.
She is starlight.”
Melody Lee, Moon Gypsy

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

Cavan Scott
Jedha. The Holy City was a sight to behold, a beacon of faith for the entire galaxy, sacred to… well, sacred to just about everyone. Above all, Jedha was a haven. A sanctuary. It was a place to retreat, to reflect and renew. A place where you could discover who you truly were… and who you could become.
Cavan Scott, Star Wars: The High Republic (2022-2023) #1

Jayita Bhattacharjee
“When your eyes meet mine and memories collide.....that's when galaxies are born in the sky...”
Jayita Bhattacharjee

Nabil Bhatiya
“The human mind feels lonely even when there are so many organs and innumerable cells continuously functioning together in the body.

Makes me wonder if the universe, with its innumerable planets, stars, galaxies and dark matter feels lonely too.

Loneliness might just be our constant companion with a few distractions coming every now and then.

We may be driven by too much fear to try and avoid it.”
Nabil Bhatiya

Vikrmn: CA Vikram Verma
“How minute I am. I am nothing. I am just a person in a building, in a street, in a city, in a state, in a country, in a continent, on a planet, of a solar system, of a galaxy, of a Milky Way, of a cluster, of a universe of multiverses. I am nothing. How minute I am.”
Vikrmn: CA Vikram Verma, Smiling Brahma

Shahid Hussain Raja
“Not all black holes are millions of light years away; one exists in everyone's heart”
Shahid Hussain Raja

Lydia Millet
“Here was a whole life Beth had missed, a hole where a life should have been. But then, he thought, the universe was made up of holes--was it so terrible to be swept into one? After all. The holes were the black between stars, between constellations. It was holes that were the fabric of the galaxy.”
Lydia Millet, How the Dead Dream
