The earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors, so that in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel and the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner. How frequent their misunderstandings. How eager they are to kill one another. How fervent their hatreds. Our postulings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe are challenged by this point of pale light…

Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark.  We must preserve and cherish the only home we’ve ever known.
