But if the universe were only 6,500 years old, how could we see the light of anything more distant than the Crab Nebula? We couldn’t. There wouldn’t have been enough time for the light to get to Earth from anywhere farther away than 6,500 light years in any direction. That’s just enough time for light to travel a tiny portion of our Milky Way Galaxy… To believe in a universe as young as 6 or 7 thousand years old, is to extinguish the light of most of the galaxy.

I never really understood the word ‘loneliness’. As far as I was concerned, I was in an orgy with the sky and the ocean, and with nature.

Give a kid a book, and you change the world. In a way, even the universe.

In the third episode of his Cosmos series, Neil deGrasse Tyson echoes Carl Sagan even down to the timeless sentiment about books.

For good measure, complement with Maurice Sendak’s little-known and lovely posters on the joy of reading.
