earth quotes

Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun. Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-two million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea.

It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.

Rainer Maria Rilke

Once there were brook trout in the streams in the mountains. You could see them standing in the amber current where the white edges of their fins wimpled softly in the flow. They smelled of moss in your hand. Polished and muscular and torsional. On their backs were vermiculate patterns that were maps of the world in its becoming. Maps and mazes. Of a thing which could not be put back. Not be made right again. In the deep glens where they lived all things were older than man and they hummed of mystery.

Cormac McCarthy

Each day is born with a sunrise and ends in a sunset, the same way we open our eyes to see the light, and close them to hear the dark.
You have no control over how your story begins or ends.
But by now, you should know that all things have an ending.
Every spark returns to darkness.
Every sound returns to silence.
And every flower returns to sleep with the earth.
The journey of the sun and moon is predictable.
But yours, is your ultimate ART.

Suzy Kassem

Slavoj Žižek

A blade of grass is a commonplace on Earth; it would be a miracle on Mars. Our descendants on Mars will know the value of a patch of green. And if a blade of grass is priceless, what is the value of a human being?

Earth is ancient now, but all knowledge is stored up in her. She keeps a record of everything that has happened since time began.

Of time to come, she says much, but who listens?
