"Maybe the time is not quite yet. But those are the worlds promising untold opportunities" - Carl Sagan

Not as fun or as easy, I know, but we really should have quotes from a diverse range of people.

"Man follows only phantoms."
"The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown"
"We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity"
"Some day the piecing together of dissociated knoldge will open up such terryfying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age"
"And I will show you something different from either your shadow at morning striding behind you or your shadow at evening rising to meet you; I will show you fear in a handful of dust"
I like the last one because it remind me about entropy. That handful of dust is terrifying because in it I can see the death of the universe.
Well, next time I hope to have some more possitive quotes!
