They are writhing and dying and burning.
They are not here to be pretty.
I am trying to learn from them.”
Caitlyn Siehl, “Sky Poem” (via mirroir)
"Do you imagine at night someone
going to bed the very moment
you are going to bed? Turning
out the light?
And isn’t it so quiet you swear
the heart is telepathic.

"I look up at the night sky, and I know that, yes, we are part of this universe, we are in this universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the universe is in us. When I reflect on that fact, I look up —many people feel small, because they’re small and the universe is big, but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars.”
Neil deGrasse Tyson (via alllways)
