"There would seem to be nothing more obvious, more tangible and palpable than the present moment. And yet it eludes us completely. All the sadness of life lies in that fact."
Milan Kundera, The Art of the Novel (via beauxland)
""We’ve begun, at last, to wonder about our origins. We’re made of star stuff - star stuff, contemplating the stars. Organized collections of 10 billion-billion-billion atoms contemplating the evolution of matter, tracing that long path by which it arrived at consciousness here on the planet Earth and perhaps, throughout the cosmos. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself"."
