Quote by Carl Sagan
The Cosmos is all that is or was or ever will be. Our feeblest contemplations of the Cosmos stir us -- there is a tingling in the spine, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation, as if a distant memory, of falling from a height. We know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries.
This quote by Carl Sagan highlights the immense wonder and intrigue that the vastness of the cosmos evokes within us. Our attempts to comprehend the expansive nature of the universe, no matter how feeble, ignite profound emotions and sensations within us, reminding us of our insignificance in the face of its mysteries. We are humbled by the realization that the cosmos holds answers far beyond our grasp, yet the allure of unraveling those enigmas propels our relentless pursuit of knowledge.
What makes us leave what we love best?What is it inside us that keeps erasing itselfWhen we need it most,That sends us into uncertainty for its own sakeAnd holds us flush there until we begin to love itAnd have to begin again?What is it within our own lives we decline to liveWhenever we find it, making our days unendurable,And nights almost visionless?I still don't know yet, but I do it.
One aspect of modern life which has gone far to stifle men is the rapid growth of tremendous corporations. Enormous spiritual sacrifices are made in the transformation of shopkeepers into employees. The disappearance of free enterprise has led to a submergence of the individual in the impersonal corporation in much the same manner as he has been submerged in the state in other lands.
