Universe - Quotes

 TimeFavorites

Two possibilities exist: Either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying.

Arthur Charles Clarke

Believers say that the entire unimaginable hugeness of the Universe was made specifically for the human race - when atheists, by contrast, say that humanity is a microscopic dot on a microscopic dot, an infinitesimal eyeblink in the vastness of time and space - and then, [...] believers accuse atheists of being arrogant.

Greta Christina

Believers say they can know the truth - the greatest truth of all about the nature of the Universe, namely the source of all existence - simply by sitting quietly and listening to their hearts... and then accuse atheists of being arrogant. And this attitude isn`t just arrogant towards atheists. It`s arrogant towards people of other religions who have sat just as quietly, listened to their hearts with just as much sincerity, and come to completely opposite conclusions about God and the soul and the Universe.

Greta Christina

Life is, objectively, meaningless; given the size and scope of the universe and our tiny role within it, it`s absurd to think that we might have any sort of cosmically vital role.

Armin Navabi

The greatest strength in the universe lies not in war, but in peace.

Supergirl (movie)

We are stories, contained within the twenty complicated centimeters behind our eyes, lines drawn by traces left by the (re)mingling together of things in the world, and oriented toward predicting events in the future, toward the direction of increasing entropy, in a rather particular corner of this immense, chaotic universe.

Carlo Rovelli

It would not be much of a universe if it wasn`t home to the people you love.

Stephen Hawking

The more the universe seems comprehensible, the more it also seems pointless.

Steven Weinberg

I feel like I`m in the wrong world. Cause I don`t belong in a world where we don`t end up together. I don`t. There are parallel universes out there where this didn`t happen. Where I was with you, and you were with me. And whatever universe that is that`s the one where my heart lives in.

Comet (movie)

We are all connected; To each other, biologically. To the earth, chemically. To the rest of the universe atomically.

Neil deGrasse Tyson

The more I learn about the universe, the less convinced I am that there`s any sort of benevolent force that has anything to do with it, at all.

Neil deGrasse Tyson

The Universe is under no obligation to make sense to you.

Neil deGrasse Tyson

If all morality comes from god, what does it mean to believe "god is good"? Wouldn`t that be a tautology? If Satan were to win the final battle (the spoiler says he doesn`t), defeat god, and become the most powerful force in the universe, wouldn`t he be our god? We`d meet the new boss, and he`d be the same as the old boss - good, by definition.

Penn Jillette

We hunger for significance for signs that our personal existence is of special meaning to the universe. To that end, we are all to eager to deceive ourselves and others to discern a sacred image in a grilled cheese sandwich or find a divine warning in a comet.

Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey (movie)

We were born into a mystery, one that has haunted us since at least as long as we've been human. We awakened on this tiny world beneath a blanket of stars like an abandoned baby left on a doorstep without a note to explain where we came from, who we are, how our universe came to be, and with no idea how to end our cosmic isolation. We’ve had to figure it all out for ourselves.
