"The universe is a pretty big place. If it's just us, seems like an awful waste of space"
-- Carl Sagan
I think it stems from the novel indeed, but must admit that I'm not entirely certain. I've seen the quote being attributed to Carl Sagan in a bunch of places, though.
@clacke good work.
@fribbledom This sentiment implies that we are somehow more than any other speck of dust in the cosmos. I think his quote may have been a little too arrogant. Then again, the older I get the less I think of humanity as a whole.
@fribbledom just feeling a bit curmudgeony tonight. Who am I to call Carl Sagan arrogant lol
@fribbledom love that movie!
