One in a Billion!

Every one of us is, in the cosmic perspective, precious. If a human disagrees with you, let him live. In a hundred billion galaxies, you will not find another.

  3. One day, I hope that future generations realise that the wisdom of Carl Sagan is equal to any of the Worlds greatest thinkers and philosophers.

    It took billions of years to make just one me (or you, or anyone else)!

    It is in humbling to recognize the infinite size of everything out there [Sagan] but that does not change that each of you is unique! You are Natures only issue of you! Celebrate your “uniqueness” and fulfill your potential. [There’s no backup of you, waiting.] ccr

  6. Faraday's Candle says:

    Have a great weekend.

    I was excited to read this view. I usually also consider that by reacting to negative people you are wasting energy. I try to reserve my energy for my health, work and family. Smiles, Robin ♡

    What an amazing mind!

  16. Prajakta says:

    This is so true in our social perspective, where tolerance is actually needed. I find it especially true for the present Indian mindset.

  17. Faraday's Candle says:

    Maintain hope!
    Thanks for stopping by!

  18. Faraday's Candle says:

    One of your favorite!

  19. Faraday's Candle says:

    Totally agree with you on this.

    I love this quote. The idea that no two people in the entire cosmos are identical is a thrilling thought. We all pass on the vital genetic material of our ancestors (as in ‘the immortal gene;) but how millions of different combinations there can be when a new individual is created! Being totally unique is both exciting and fascinating.

  21. Faraday's Candle says:

    It is truly fascinating!
    Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

  22. Wise Carl Sagan! Inspiring quote 🙂 Have a great weekend!
