Quote Of The Week This Week: Space – Petit Elefant

It’s Quote of the Week time!  This one has been on our DIY chalkboard for a few months, because we all need a little reminder everyday.  A reminder that the universe is bigger than us, and that at the very same time, we’re all a part of it.  That within every one of us is something huge and important, and special.  Carl Sagan was a wise one, and I love looking at these words every day and feeling both critical to the universe and almost irrelevant at the same time.  Space makes everything seem so wide and wonderful, doesn’t it?  Especially with all the news about Mars and the photos coming from N.A.S.A.!  Can you even believe we had men walking on the moon ONLY 46 years ago?!  It boggles the mind.  (name that movie)

This week’s quote of the week below!

ENJOY all this inspirational reading.  There’s nothing like some good, motivating words to help us muscle through the tough stuff in life, is there?  Especially when those words come from the wise Carl Sagan, and they’re about the universe, for crying out loud.
