G.K. Chesterton Quote of the Day

"A man may say, "I like this vast cosmos, with its throng of stars and its crowd of varied creatures." But if it comes to that why should not a man say, "I like this cosy little cosmos, with its decent number of stars and as neat a provision of live stock as I wish to see"?

- Orthodoxy

Hi Dan: did you see the one by Carl Jung? He apparently said many years ago: "Go outside on a clear summer night and look up and try to count the stars, and marvel and wonder at it all.... it's vast... now walk away and quietly consider looking inside yourself: it's just as vast".... Dad
