“Through the greatness of the universe, which philosophy contemplates, the mind is also rendered great, and becomes capable of that union with the universe which constitutes its highest good.” 

Bertrand Russell

“Our descendants will be amazed that we did not know things that are so plain to them. Our universe is a sorry little affair unless it has in it something for every age to investigate.”

Seneca, First Century CE

”It is enough for me to reflect upon the marvelous structure of the universe which we can dimly perceive, and to try humbly to comprehend even an infinitesimal part of the intelligence manifested in nature.”

Albert Einstein

“Only through understanding the universe can we understand ourselves or our proper role in the great community of existence.”

Thomas Berry
