In memory of Carl Sagan (11/9/1934 – 12/20/1996) on his birthday.

His words about our ‘Pale Blue Dot’ is one of the best things ever said about the human condition and our place in the universe. The words are truly inspired and speak to the greater vision beyond our own mortal and limited viewpoint. Expanding our thought beyond the scope of our own conflicts and differences is something inspiring I think. Not just for the contemplation of the vastness of space and the grandeur of the universe, but in our own lives for perspective too. Thought I would share the words in tribute of Mr Sagan’s birthday.
