A Favorite Quote

Next in the blog challenge – a favorite quote. I actually have lots of quotes that I like for various reasons (and to use in various situations), but this has always been a favorite of mine and many others who are fans of earth and space exploration:

“We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.”
T.S. Eliot

There are MANY science quotes that I love – pretty much anything written by Carl Sagan is quotable, for example. But another I would add is actually a song lyric:

“I am made from the dust of the stars
and the oceans flow in my veins.”

It comes from the song “Presto” on the album of the same name by the band Rush. I became a fan in college (thanks to my college boyfriend, who was an uberfan) and I have always loved this particular line.
