sagan“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.”

“In order to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first create the universe”

“We have also arranged things so that almost no one understands science and technology. This is a prescription for disaster. We might get away with it for a while, but sooner or later this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to blow up in our faces.”

-Carl Sagan
