THE REALEST SHIT I EVER SEEN GOD DAMN

Here on Earth we live on a planet that is in orbit around the Sun. The Sun itself is a star that is on fire and will someday burn up, leaving our solar system uninhabitable. Therefore we must build a bridge to the stars, because as far as we know, we are the only sentient creatures in the entire universe. When do we start building that bridge to the stars? We begin as soon as we are able, and this is that time. We must not fail in this obligation we have to keep alive the only meaningful life we know of. —
Wernher von Braun, pioneering rocket scientist and architect of America’s pioneering manned space program, as recalled by Tom Wolfe.
This passage opens the book Five Billion Years of Solitude, a reminder that life on Earth has an expiration date, but the duration our existence is in our own hands … nay, our brains, certainly here on Earth, and perhaps beyond.
There must be something strangely sacred in salt. It is in our tears and in the sea. — Kahlil Gibran, Sea and Foam (via thatkindofwoman)
