Carl Sagan Quote: “Cosmos is a Greek word for the order of the universe. It is, in a way, the opposite of Chaos. It implies the deep interconnectedness of all things. It conveys awe for the intricate and subtle way in which the universe is put together.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “So those who wished for some central cosmic purpose for us, or at least our world, or at least our solar system, or at least our galaxy, have been disappointed, progressively disappointed. The universe is not responsive to our ambitious expectations.”

Carl Sagan Quote: “We are the product of 4.5 billion years of fortuitous, slow biological evolution. There is no reason to think that the evolutionary process has stopped. Man is a transitional animal. He is not the climax of creation.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “Science is not only compatible with spirituality; it is a profound source of spirituality.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “We live on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “I believe that the extraordinary should be pursued. But extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.”

Carl Sagan Quote: “A galaxy is composed of gas and dust and stars – billions upon billions of stars. Every star may be a sun to someone.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “The truth may be puzzling. It may take some work to grapple with. It may be counterintuitive. It may contradict deeply held prejudices. It may not be consonant with what we desperately want to be true. But our preferences do not determine what’s true.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “The desire to be connected with the cosmos reflects a profound reality, but we are connected; not in the trivial ways that astrology promises, but in the deepest ways.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “We are, each of us, a multitude. Within us is a little universe.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “It will not be we who reach Alpha Centauri, and the other nearby stars. It will be a species very like us – but with more of our strengths and fewer of our weaknesses.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “Any civilization that doesn’t develop space travel dies.”

Carl Sagan Quote: “For all our failings, despite our limitations and fallibilities, we humans are capable of greatness.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “First rule in government spending: Why build one, when you can have two at twice the price?”
Carl Sagan Quote: “The dumbing down of America is evident in the slow decay of substantive content, a kind of celebration of ignorance.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “We are made of star stuff. For the most part, atoms heavier than hydrogen were created in the interiors of stars and then expelled into space to be incorporated into later stars. The Sun is probably a third generation star.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “Our ancestors worshipped the Sun, and they were not that foolish. It makes sense to revere the Sun and the stars, for we are their children.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “I believe our future depends powerfully on how well we understand this cosmos in which we float, like a mote of dust in the morning sky.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “Maybe it’s a little early. Maybe the time is not quite yet. But those other worlds – promising untold opportunities – beckon. Silently, they orbit the Sun, waiting.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “The open road still softly calls, like a nearly forgotten song of childhood.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “The size and age of the Cosmos are beyond ordinary human understanding. Lost somewhere between immensity and eternity is our tiny planetary home.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “We on Earth have just awakened to the great oceans of space and time from which we have emerged.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “We humans appear on the cosmic calendar so recently that our recorded history occupies only the last few seconds of the last minute of December 31st.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “In our time, we have sifted the sands of Mars, we have established a presence there, we have fulfilled a century of dreams!”
Carl Sagan Quote: “Who will speak for Planet Earth?”

Carl Sagan Quote: “Books permit us to voyage through time, to tap the wisdom of our ancestors.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “A blade of grass is a commonplace on Earth; it would be a miracle on Mars. Our descendants on Mars will know the value of a patch of green. And if a blade of grass is priceless, what is the value of a human being?”
Carl Sagan Quote: “Our loyalties are to the species and the planet. We speak for Earth.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “It is clear that the nations of the world now can only rise and fall together. It is not a question of one nation winning at the expense of another. We must all help one another or all perish together.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “The surface of the Earth is the shore of the cosmic ocean. From it we have learned most of what we know. Recently, we have waded a little out to sea, enough to dampen our toes or, at most, wet our ankles. The water seems inviting. The ocean calls.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “The sacred truth of science is that there are no sacred truths.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “Better the hard truth, I say, than the comforting fantasy. And in the final tolling it often turns out that the facts are more comforting than the fantasy.”
