“It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth. I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth. I didn’t feel like a giant. I felt very, very small.”
I unfortunately don’t know the exact date – or context – of this particular quote, nor was I able to find either in my (admittedly quick) online search this afternoon. If I locate either of them later, I’ll update this post with the new information.
In the meantime, allow yourself a moment tonight to look up at the sky, admire the moon (and the stars), and appreciate the vastness that surrounds us.
