“I think that we are like stars. Something happens to burst us open; but when we burst open and think we are dying; we’re actually turning into a supernova. And then when we look at ourselves again, we see that we’re suddenly more beautiful than we ever were before!”
C. JoyBell C.

“Kita memang tak pernah tahu apa yang dirindukan sampai sesuatu itu tiba di depan mata.”
Dee, Supernova: Akar

“Brother Cavil:

In all your travels, have you ever seen a star go supernova? ...

I have. I saw a star explode and send out the building blocks of the Universe. Other stars, other planets and eventually other life. A supernova! Creation itself! I was there. I wanted to see it and be part of the moment. And you know how I perceived one of the most glorious events in the universe? With these ridiculous gelatinous orbs in my skull! With eyes designed to perceive only a tiny fraction of the EM spectrum. With ears designed only to hear vibrations in the air. ...

I don't want to be human! I want to see gamma rays! I want to hear X-rays! And I want to - I want to smell dark matter! Do you see the absurdity of what I am? I can't even express these things properly because I have to - I have to conceptualize complex ideas in this stupid limiting spoken language! But I know I want to reach out with something other than these prehensile paws! And feel the wind of a supernova flowing over me! I'm a machine! And I can know much more! I can experience so much more. But I'm trapped in this absurd body! And why? Because my five creators thought that God wanted it that way!”
Ronald D. Moore

“You know what a supernova is? It's a dead star. And yet, it is the most beautiful specimen in the universe. Lots of people are supernovas but don't know it, they think that they're dead; they don't know that they're beautiful.”
C. JoyBell C.

“Manusia menuntut manusia lain untuk punya drama. Itu syaratnya supaya kita kelihatan normal”
Dee Lestari, Inteligensi Embun Pagi

Michelle Cuevas
“Change is the nature of nature,'" she read. "'For example, stars expand as they grow older. They grow from a star, to a red super-giant, to a supernova. When a massive star explodes at the end of its life, the explosion dispenses different elements-helium, carbon, oxygen, iron, nickel-across the universe, scattering starduest. That stardust now makes up the planets, including ours.”
Michelle Cuevas, Beyond the Laughing Sky

“Drama adalah komplikasi. Drama membuat kalian egois, berpikir kepentingan pribadi kalianlah yang paling penting”
Dee Lestari, Inteligensi Embun Pagi

“When a star goes supernova, the explosion emits enough light to overshadow an entire solar system, even a galaxy. Such explosions can set off the creation of new stars.

In its own way, it was not unlike being born.”
Todd Nelsen, Appetite & Other Stories

Lauren Groff
“Did you?' the producer said. 'He's so clownish on the surface, all joke and dazzle. How in the world could you have seen it?'
'But I did. The moment I met him," she said. "A fucking supernova. Every day since.' She thought, but did not say, almost.”
Lauren Groff, Fates and Furies

Neal Shusterman
“You look spectacluar, Cam.' She smoothes out his shirt and straightens his tie. 'You look like the shining star you are!'
'Let's hope I don't give birth to complex elements.'
She looks at him quizzically.
'Supernova,' he says. 'If I'm a shining star, let's hope I don't blow up.”
Neal Shusterman

Clifford A. Pickover
“Without these supernova explosions, there are no mist-covered swamps, computer chips, trilobites, Mozart or the tears of a little girl. Without exploding stars, perhaps there could be a heaven, but there is certainly no Earth.”
Clifford A. Pickover

“Pekerjaanmu kelak hanya penyambung nafkah, sebesar apapun kamu mencintainya, jangan takut untuk meninggalkan semua itu bila saatnya datang. Jangan ragu. Dirimu lebih besar dari yang kamu tahu”
Dewi 'Dee' Lestari, Supernova: Petir

Isabella Santacroce
“Gridavamo siamo angeli, possiamo lanciarci senza distruggerci, abbiamo le ali nei muscoli, siamo spaziali.

Noi andremo a vivere sulla Tour Eiffel, e ogni notte raggiungeremo la luna, con le cuffie, e Venus degli Air a tutto volume.
Il nostro letto sarà un cratere, e al risveglio lanceremo sulla terra le fragole, una pioggia di fragole con il nostro nome dipinto, e un bigliettino legato a ciascuna, con sopra scritto: noi siamo sulla luna, abbiamo le stelle nel cuore, e il nostro amore è una supernova, che illumina tutti i baci del mondo”
Isabella Santacroce, Supernova

Michio Kaku
“Our Sun is not Earth’s true “mother.” Although many peoples of Earth have worshipped the Sun as a god that gave birth to Earth, this is only partially correct. Although Earth was originally created from the Sun (as part of the ecliptic plane of debris and dust that circulated around the Sun 4.5 billion years ago), our Sun is barely hot enough to fuse hydrogen to helium.
This means that our true “mother” sun was actually an unnamed star or collection of stars that died billions of years ago in a supernova, which then seeded nearby nebulae with the higher elements beyond iron that make up our body. Literally, our bodies are made of stardust, from stars that died billions of years ago.”
Michio Kaku, Parallel Worlds: A Journey through Creation, Higher Dimensions, and the Future of the Cosmos

David Clawson
“Every time he said those words it was like a supernova of joy exploding inside me. I just didn’t yet know that supernovas burn so brightly because a catastrophe is taking place. That lesson would come later.”
David Clawson, My Fairy Godmother Is a Drag Queen

“... the blast signatures of a detonated supernova and that of a nuclear bomb are identical.”
Eric Chaisson, Epic of Evolution: Seven Ages of the Cosmos

Jodi Picoult
“Stars are fires that burn for thousands of years. Some of them burn slow and long, like red dwarfs. Others-blue giants-burn their due so fast they shine across great distances, and are easy to see. As they Starr to run out of fuel,they burn helium, grow even hotter, and explode in a supernova. Supernovas, they're brighter than the brightest galaxies. They die, but everyone watches them go.”
Jodi Picoult, My Sister's Keeper

Isabella Santacroce
“Il corpo è la casa del tempo, dentro di lui muoiono gli anni, e con loro noi stessi. Amavo davvero una volta, le speranze erano sogni nei quali credevo, ho lasciato mi rubassero tutto, non mi sono difesa. Ora ho un cuore in rovina, ma sulle sue macerie, ho costruito il mio impero.
[...]
Da adolescente ero all'inizio di tutto, ero il contrario della fine, ero ciò che si perde, e non ti ridà più nessuno. Se penso ai miei sedici anni, mi chiedo se sono esistiti davvero, ero così diversa, completamente un'altra persona. Non è vero che si cresce, si crepa. Crescere è un assassinio, non esistono altre parole, ti ritrovi a camminare sullo scheletro dei tuoi ricordi, la tua vita diventa un cimitero, e tu la bara di tutto.”
Isabella Santacroce, Supernova

Joseph Raphael Becker
“Stars are born
babies, just like us.
They live their lives,
then die without fuss.”
Joseph Raphael Becker, Annabelle & Aiden: Worlds Within Us

“Her smile was a supernova: blazing, beautiful, short-lived.”
Ellen Miller, Like Being Killed

Jodi Picoult
“Stars are fires that burn for thousands of years. Some of them burn slow and long, like red dwarfs. Others-blue giants-burn their fuel so fast they shine across great distances, and are easy to see. As they start to run out of fuel, they burn helium, grow even hotter, and explode in a supernova. Supernovas, they're brighter than the brightest galaxies. They die, but everyone watches them go.”

“E se tu vuoi diventare un fiore, allora io voglio diventare il cielo, così se hai sete chiamo la pioggia, e se hai freddo il sole.”
