The more of us beyond the Earth, the greater the diversity of worlds we inhabit, the more varied the planetary engineering, the greater the range of societal standards and values — then the safer the human species will be.
― Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space (via 90377)
We often forget that WE ARE NATURE. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say that we have lost our connection to nature, we’ve lost our connection to ourselves.
― Andy Goldsworthy (via selenemooneffe)
The moment we begin to fear the opinions of others and hesitate to tell the truth that is in us, and from motives of policy are silent when we should speak, the divine floods of light and life no longer flow into our souls.
― Elizabeth Cady Stanton (via seabois)
