Even when no one is listening…

Thoughts From Carl Sagan

 

“I believe it is true that humility is the only response in a confrontation with the universe, but not a humility that prevents us from seeking the nature of the universe we are admiring. If we seek that nature, then love can be in formed by truth instead of being based on ignorance or self-deception. “

“For me, I would say that superstition is marked not by its pretension to a body of knowledge but by its method of seeking truth. And I would like to suggest that superstition is very simple: It is merely belief without evidence.” 

“You can’t convince a believer of anything; for their belief is not based on evidence, it’s based on a deep seated need to believe.”

“It pays to keep an open mind, but not so open your brains fall out.”

“We can judge our progress by the courage of our questions and the depth of our answers, our willingness to embrace what is true rather than what feels good.”

 

“For small creatures such as we the vastness is bearable only through love. ”

“Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.” 

“Science is not only compatible with spirituality; it is a

profound source of spirituality.”
