"Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.
I am haunted by waters."
— Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It and Other Stories (via quotes-shape-us)
"And men said that the blood of the stars flowed in her veins."

We’re spoiled from a mission like Cassini which has captured views of Saturn from every angle imaginable but we’ve seen very little of our solar system’s outermost gas giant Neptune.
On August 25, 1989, the Voyager 2 spacecraft made its closest approach to Neptune, the only spacecraft to visit the planet. Based on the images recorded during its close encounter and in the following days, this composited scene covers the dim outer planet, largest moon Triton, and faint system of rings. From just beyond Neptune’s orbit, the interplanetary perspective looks back toward the Sun (which lies 2.8 billion miles away), capturing the planet and Triton as thin sunlit crescents.

"You are not IN the universe, you ARE the universe, an intrinsic part of it. Ultimately you are not a person, but a focal point where the universe is becoming conscious of itself. What an amazing miracle."
