“The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.” ― Carl Sagan ― Carl Sagan ”


The Voyager Golden Record was compiled by two people in love: the astronomer Carl Sagan, and Ann Druyan, the creative director of the project, who he would later marry. Druyan... recorded the electrical impulses of her brain and nervous system, her heartbeats... which were the sounds of a woman swept away: by a man, by ideas, by the power of sending their love out into eternity... Love, golden, close to eternal, flying at impossible speeds through the heavens.

I repin this every time I see it, because it is one of the most profound and beautiful things I have ever known. How can we not feel a sense of wonder and magic at the universe when we know that we are, in the most literal sense, made of stars?


My favorite part of most days is going to bed, so if I stay awake txting you or talking, you're pretty important. :)
