  1. Suggestion for some future Quote of the Day (from a confessed and unabashed Heinlein addict):

    “The instinct to survive is human nature itself, and every aspect of our personalities derives from it. Anything that conflicts with the survival instinct acts sooner or later to eliminate the individual and thereby fails to show up in future generations. . . . A scientifically verifiable theory of morals must be rooted in the individual’s instinct to survive–and nowhere else!–and must correctly describe the hierarchy of survival, note the motivations at each level, and resolve all conflicts.
    We have such a theory now; we can solve any moral problem, on any level. Self-interest, love of family, duty to country, responsibility toward the human race . . . .
    The basis of all morality is duty, a concept with the same relation to group that self-interest has to individual.”
    ― Robert A. Heinlein, Starship Troopers

  2. Lest we forget just how puny we are in this great cosmos. It still don’t take much to push us over. There are things out there, terrific and horrible, and real, that can eliminate us in our entirety in the wink of an eye.

  3. “You are about to move into areas of the galaxy containing wonders more incredible than you can possibly imagine – and terrors to freeze your soul…If you can’t take a little bloody nose, maybe you ought to go back home and crawl under your bed. It’s not safe out here. It’s wondrous, with treasures to satiate desires both subtle and gross. But it’s not for the timid.”
    –“Q” on the nature of the Universe.
    Maurice Hurley in Star Trek The Next Generation
