Carl Sagan Quote: “The trapdoor beneath our feet swings open. We find ourselves in bottomless free fall. We are lost in a great darkness, and there’s no one to send out a search party.

Carl Sagan Quote: “It would be wryly interesting if in human history the cultivation of marijuana led generally to the invention of agriculture, and thereby to civilization.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “The gears of poverty, ignorance, hopelessness and low self-esteem interact to create a kind of perpetual failure machine that grinds down dreams from generation to generation. We all bear the cost of keeping it running. Illiteracy is its linchpin.”

Carl Sagan Quote: “There is a report that says that kids who watch violent TV programs tend to be more violent when they grow up. But did the TV cause the violence, or do violent children preferentially enjoy watching violent programs?”
Carl Sagan Quote: “It is said that men may not be the dreams of the god, but rather that the gods are the dreams of men.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “There are no forbidden questions in science, no matters too sensitive or delicate to be probed, no sacred truths.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “I hold that popularization of science is successful if, at first, it does no more than spark the sense of wonder.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “Those afraid of the universe as it really is, those who pretend to nonexistent knowledge and envision a Cosmos centered on human beings will prefer the fleeting comforts of superstition.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “The secrets of evolution are death and time-the deaths of enormous numbers of lifeforms that were imperfectly adapted to the environment; and time for a long succession of small mutations.”

Carl Sagan Quote: “I would suggest that science is, at least in my part, informed worship.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “There are many hypotheses in science which are wrong. That’s perfectly all right: it’s the aperture to finding out what’s right. Science is a self-correcting process.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “If our long-term survival is at stake, we have a basic responsibility to our species to venture to other worlds. Sailors on a becalmed sea, we sense the stirring of a breeze.”

Carl Sagan Quote: “Not all bits have equal value.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “You could just as well say that an agnostic is a deeply religious person with at least a rudimentary knowledge of human fallibility.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “A general problem with much of Western theology in my view is that the god portrayed is too small. It is a god of a tiny world and not a god of a galaxy much less of a universe.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “An atheist is someone who is certain that God does not exist, someone who has compelling evidence against the existence of God. I know of no such compelling evidence.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “But amid much elegance and precision, the details of life and the Universe also exhibit haphazard, jury-rigged arrangements and much poor planning. What shall we make of this: an edifice abandoned early in construction by the architect?”
Carl Sagan Quote: “Any sufficiently crisp question can be answered by a single binary digit-0 or 1, yes or no.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “The fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “War is murder writ large.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “Writing a novel is like trying to solve a very long mathematical equation. Changing anything can change everything else.”

Carl Sagan Quote: “Every aspect of Nature reveals a deep mystery and touches our sense of wonder and awe. Those afraid of the universe as it really is, those who pretend to nonexistent knowledge and envision a Cosmos centered on human beings will prefer the fleeting comforts of superstition. They avoid rather than confront the world. But those with the courage to explore the weave and structure of the Cosmos, even where it differs profoundly from their wishes and prejudices, will penetrate its deepest mysteries.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “The fact that so little of the findings of modern science is prefigured in Scripture to my mind casts further doubt on it divine inspiration.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “Thus the recent rapid evolution of human intelligence is not only the cause of but also the only conceivable solution to the many serious problems that beset us.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “If you are only skeptical, then no new ideas make it through to you.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “Clutching our crystals and religiously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in steep decline, unable to distinguish between what’s true and what feels good, we slide, almost without noticing, into superstition and darkness.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “It seems madness to say, ‘We’re worried that they’re going to become addicted to marijuana’ – there’s no evidence whatever that it’s an addictive drug, but even if it were, these people are dying, what are we saving them from?”

Carl Sagan Quote: “Football is a thinly disguised re-enactment of hunting; we played it before we were human.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “Otherwise we don’t run the government the government runs us.”
Carl Sagan Quote: “Science is not only compatible with spirituality; it is a profound source of spirituality.
