“If knowledge can create problems, it is not through ignorance that we can solve them.” ― Isaac Asimov

"Religion. It's given people hope in a world torn apart by religion." — Jon Stewart

“You're an interesting species. An interesting mix. You're capable of such beautiful dreams, and such horrible nightmares. You feel so lost, so cut off, so alone, only you're not. See, in all our searching, the only thing we've found that makes the emptiness bearable, is each other.” ― Carl Sagan, Contact

" Babylon 5 was the last of the Babylon stations. There would never be another. It changed the future and it changed us. It taught us that we have to create the future or others will do it for us. It showed us that we have to care for one another, because if we don't, who will? And that true strength sometimes comes from the most unlikely places. Mostly, though, I think it gave us hope, that there can always be new beginnings. Even for people like us." (Susan Ivanova, character from Michael J. Straczynski's tv series Babylon 5)
