pain is the staff of life

The Only Ones

Posted in Uncategorized by ruthanzo on May 11, 2010

Last night when Lily and I drove home from Montreal the sky was so full of stars we got to talking about whether or not there might be life elsewhere in the Universe. Lily remembered that shortly before he died Carl Sagan had said he doubted there was. She said if that’s the case I feel very special.

If we all believed we were really really special would it make a difference?

    Fer Sure … it’s people’s lack of this awareness that causes much of the problem.

    “If the stars should appear one night in a thousand years, how would men believe and adore; and preserve for many generations the remembrance of the city of God which had been shown! But every night come out these envoys of beauty, and light the universe with their admonishing smile.”
