Quotable Quotes: The Search for Intelligent Life – on Earth!

In a week that contained Earth Day and the discovery of an earth-sized planet just 20 light years away, a few words about our lonely, little rock seems appropriate.

“Who are we? We find that we live on an insignificant planet of a humdrum star lost in a galaxy tucked away in some forgotten corner of a universe in which there are far more galaxies than people.”
Dr. Carl Sagan

“What's the use of a fine house if you haven't got a tolerable planet to put it on?”
Henry David Thoreau

“The true artist has the planet for his pedestal; the adventurer, after years of strife, has nothing broader than his shoes”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

“We do not have to visit a madhouse to find disordered minds; our planet is the mental institution of the universe.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“Maybe this world is another planet's Hell.”
Aldous Huxley

Have a good weekend.
