Picture Quotes

The issue, as correctly emphasized by Carl Sagan, is the probability of the evolution of high intelligence and an electronic civilization on an inhabited world.

Picture Quotes

My picture of the world is drawn in perspective and not like a model to scale. The foreground is occupied by human beings and the stars are all as small as three-penny bits.

In time the world will cool and everything will die; but that is a long time off still and its present value at compound discount is almost nothing.
