Carl Sagan
“Each Voyager is itself a message. In their exploratory intent, in the lofty ambition of their objectives, in their utter lack of intent to do harm, and in the brilliance of their design and performance, these robots speak eloquently for us.”
Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space

“The sky is peppered with smudges of indigo and grey as the moon and sun occupy the same space.”
Louise Jensen, The Gift

Carl Sagan
“We are a way for the cosmos to know itself”
Carl Sagan

Lisa Kleypas
“Today Amanda was dressed in a gown of soft pink wool trimmed in corded silk ribbon of a deeper shade. She had worn a bonnet adorned with China roses, which now reposed on the side of his desk, a pair of velvet ribbons draping gently toward the floor. The pink shade of the gown brought out the color in Amanda's cheeks, while the simple cut displayed her generous figure to its best advantage. Aside from Jack's considerable regard for her intelligence, he couldn't help thinking of her as a tidy little bonbon.”
Lisa Kleypas, Suddenly You

Sanober  Khan
“May the nights always be aglow
with the bliss of the day
with unharmed hands and feet
and kissed cheeks.”
Sanober Khan, A Thousand Flamingos
