Surely a man needs a closed place wherein he may strike root and, like the seed, become. But also he needs the great Milky Way above him and the vast sea spaces, though neither stars nor ocean serve his daily needs.

If you go far enough outyou can see the Universe itself,all the billion light years summed up timeonly as a flash, just as lonely, as distantas a star on a June night if you go far enough out.
And still, my friend, if you go far enough outyou are only at the beginning
- of yourself.
