"Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways."
"People always say that when you love someone, nothing in the world matters. But that’s not true, is it? You know, and I know, that when you love someone, everything in the world matters a little bit more."
Ann Druyan — the amazing lady who has co-written, produced and directed both the original (1980s) and today’s “Cosmos” series.
“We may be little but we don’t think small. It’s the courage of questions, of grasping our true circumstances, and not pretending we are at the center of it all, that is adulthood. That’s being a grownup. Nothing in the cosmos diminishes the profundity of life and love. This show is a celebration of life in the universe.”
"Organic as a dandelion seed, [the ship of our imagination] will carry us to worlds of dreams and worlds of facts”
- Carl Sagan
"Through an old but serviceable telescope from our front yard…my father showed me the moon and the planet Saturn for the first time, and I shall never forget it…seeing those objects up close changes you, and so it was with Professor Sagan’s astronomy class. It has changed me every bit as profoundly as the craters on the moon or the rings of Saturn. He empowered us. Indeed, he emboldened us to come to know our place in the cosmos, our place among the stars — what I like to call our place in space. Every day in his class, there was something astonishing to behold."
- Bill Nye
"Human beings are funny. They long to be with the person they love but refuse to admit openly. Some are afraid to show even the slightest sign of affection because of fear. Fear that their feelings may not be recognized, or even worst, returned. But one thing about human beings that puzzles me the most is their conscious effort to be connected with the object of their affection even if it kills them slowly inside."
