There was no "before" the beginning of our universe, because once upon a time there was no time.
John D. Barrow
Touch a scientist and you touch a child.
We are born at a given moment, in a given place and, like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and of the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more.
We can lick gravity, but sometimes the paperwork is overwhelming.
Wernher von Braun
We seem to have a compulsion these days to bury time capsules in order to give those people living in the next century or so some idea of what we are like.
