“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.
For small creatures such as we the vastness is bearable only through love.
We're made of star stuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself.
If you want to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first create the universe.
Science is a way of thinking much more than it is a body of knowledge.
For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.
Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.
We are like butterflies who flutter for a day and think it is forever.
Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.
The universe is not required to be in perfect harmony with human ambition.”
