“If the stars should appear but one night every thousand years how man would marvel and stare.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Ralph Waldo Emerson once asked what we would do if the stars only came out once every thousand years.
No one would sleep that night, of course. The world would create new religions overnight. We would be ecstatic, delirious, made rapturous by the glory of God. Instead, the stars come out every night and we watch television.” – Paul Hawken
