"This grand show is eternal.
It is always sunrise somewhere.
Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn... 
each in its turn,
as the round earth rolls."
John Muir

"Whoever it was who searched the heavens
with a telescope and found no God
would not have found the human mind
if he had searched the brain with a microscope."
 George Santayana

We are impatient of being on the way
to something unknown, something new."
