"In Wonders We Sail, Questing for the Answers in Veil"

Quotes from Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey (2014) Presented by Neil deGrasse Tyson

" The more science belongs to all of us, its less likely to be misused."

"After all the Universe is mostly dark, dotted by islands of light."


" I want to know what is in those dark places, and what happened before the big bang. I want to know what lies beyond the cosmic horizon, and how life began. Are there other places in the cosmos where matter and energy have become alive and aware. I want to know my ancestors, all of them; I want to be a good strong link in the chain of generations. I want to protect my children and the children of ages to come."

"Its ok not know all the answers, its better to admit our ignorance than to believe answers that might be wrong. Pretending to know everything closes the door of finding out what really there." 

Congratulations. You're alive. There's an unbroken thread that stretches across more than 3 billion years that connects us to the first life that ever touched this world. Think of how tough, resourceful, and lucky all of our ancestors must have been to survive long enough to pass on the message of life to the next and the next and the next generation. Hundreds of millions of times.

Before it came to us. There were so many rivers to cross, so many hazards along the way. Predators, starvation, disease, miscalculation, long winters, drought, flood and violence. Not to mention the occasional upheavals erupted within our planet and the apocalyptic bolts that come from the blue. No matter where we hail from or who our parents were, we are descended from the hearty survivors of unimaginable catastrophes. Each of us is a runner in the longest and the most dangerous relay race there ever was, and at this moment we hold the baton in our hands
