“To see the earth as it truly is, small and blue and beautiful in that eternal silence where it floats, is to see ourselves a riders on the earth together, brothers on that bright loveliness in the eternal cold—brothers who know now they are truly brothers.”
— Archibald MacLeish, American Poet
It never ceases to amaze me to watch the earth pass below as I sit comfortably in an airplane gazing at the landscape before me.
“The Earth was small, light blue, and so touchingly alone, our home that must be defended like a holy relic.
— Aleksei Leonov, Russian Cosmonaut
