„The size and age of the Cosmos are beyond ordinary human understanding.“

— Carl Sagan American astrophysicist, cosmologist, author and science educator 1934 - 1996
Context: The size and age of the Cosmos are beyond ordinary human understanding. Lost somewhere between immensity and eternity is our tiny planetary home. In a cosmic perspective, most human concerns seem insignificant, even petty. And yet our species is young and curious and brave and shows much promise. In the last few millennia we have made the most astonishing and unexpected discoveries about the Cosmos and our place within it, explorations that are exhilarating to consider. They remind us that humans have evolved to wonder, that understanding is a joy, that knowledge is prerequisite to survival. I believe our future depends powerfully on how well we understand this Cosmos in which we float like a mote of dust in the morning sky. p. 4

„Limits... seem to me of two kinds, ordinary or natural, and extraordinary or beyond the natural.“

— Adolphe Quetelet Belgian astronomer, mathematician, statistician and sociologist 1796 - 1874
Context: Limits... seem to me of two kinds, ordinary or natural, and extraordinary or beyond the natural. The first limits comprise within them the qualities which deviate more or less from the mean, without attracting attention by excess on one side or the other. When the deviations become greater, they constitute the extraordinary class, having itself its limits, on the outer verge of which are things preternatural... We must conceive the same distinctions in the moral world. Preface of M. Quetelet
