we see the stars, and we want them

‘We were put here as witnesses to the miracle of life. We see the stars, and we want them. We are beholden to give back to the universe…. If we make landfall on another star system, we become immortal.’

Ray Bradbury Speech to National School Board Association (1995)

(via Get Shouty)

 Thank you for the words.

Now rest easy Ray, somewhere among the stars.
