a mote of dust, suspended in a sunbeam











If you look at it, you see a dot. That's here.

 That's home. That's us. On it, everyone you 

ever heard of, every human being who ever lived, 

lived out their lives. The aggregate of all our 

joys and; sufferings, thousands of confident 

religions, ideologies and; economic doctrines, 

every hunter and; forager, every hero and; 

coward, every creator and; destroyer of 

civilizations, every king and; peasant, every 

young couple in love, every hopeful child, every 

mother and; father, every inventor and; 

explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt 

politician, every superstar, every supreme 

leader, every saint and; sinner in the history 

of our species, lived there on a mote of dust, 

suspended in a sunbeam


Carl Sagan (reminded of long ago by Kind over Matter)
