the world

A Quote by Carl Edward Sagan on cosmos, universe, and the world

Those afraid of the universe as it really is, those who pretend to nonexistent knowledge and envision a Cosmos centered on human beings will prefer the fleeting comforts of superstition. They avoid rather than confront the world. But those with the courage to explore the weave and structure of the Cosmos, even where it differs profoundly from their wishes and prejudices, will penetrate its deepest mysteries.

Carl Sagan (1934 - 1996)

A Quote by Marian Anderson on people, changing the world, change, change the world, the world, hesitation, dong good, and courage

There are many persons ready to do what is right because in their hearts they know it is right. But, they hesitate, waiting for the other fellow to make the first move--- and he, in turn, waits for you. The minute a person whose word means a great deal dares to take the open-hearted and courageous way, many others follow.

Marian Anderson (1897 - 1993)

A Quote by William Shakespeare on the world, suffering, ignorance, and watchfulness

Why, let the strucken deer go weep,
     The hart ungalled play.
For some must watch, while some must sleep;
      Thus runs the world away.
