“For small creatures such as we the vastness is bearable only through love.” — Carl Sagan. Tattoo done by James Zehna at Sailor Jim’s Electric Tattoo in Logan, Utah.
This tattoo means so much to me and is a testament to my relationship with husband  but also my love of nature and our place in within it. He’s an aerospace engineer and introduced me to the wonderful writings of Carl Sagan and I became hooked. I’ve always been a literature fan/bookworm and am completely in love with nature around me but I was completely blown away with how Sagan expresses the beauty of the universe around us. This world, this experience, this life, really is only bearable through the love of those in our lives, it’s hard work being human and we really need that compassion for each other.

This quote is just awesome.

#alone

She had spent her career attempting to make contact with the most remote and alien of strangers, while in her own life she had made contact with hardly anyone at all. She had been fierce in debunking the creation myths of others, and oblivious to the lie at the core of her own. She had studied the universe all her life, but had overlooked its clearest message:

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

Carl Sagan, Contact (via nec-plus-ultra)

Drumlin: Ellie, I know you must think this is all pretty unfair. Maybe that’s an understatement. What you don’t know is I agree. I wish the world was a place where fairness was the bottom line and that the kind of idealism that you showed at the hearing was rewarded, not taken advantage of. Unfortunately, we don’t live in that world.

Ellie: Funny, I always believed that the world is what we make of it.
