Alex Petrov's Favorite Quotations

The vastness of the heavens stretches my imagination--stuck on this carousel my little eye can catch one-million-year-old light. A vast pattern--of which I am a part--perhaps my stuff was belched from some forgotten star, as one is belching there. [...] What is the pattern, or the meaning, or the why? It does not harm to the mystery to know a little about it. For far more marvellous is the truth than any artists of the past imagined.
Richard Feynman
Is it possible that we -- we Americans, we Soviets, we humans -- are at last coming to our senses and beginning to work together on behalf of the species and the planet?
Nothing is promised. History has placed this burden on our shoulders. It is up to us to build a future worthy of our children and grandchildren.
