"A major puzzle for which nobody has an answer is this: is there some size at which the planets change their nature from water-rich planets like Neptune, to rocky planets like the Earth? We have found two planets that are the size of the Earth in radius, but they are very close to their host star, so water on the surface would evaporate away.

It's possible that Earth, with its mostly rocky composition, is rare in the universe." - Geoffrey Marcy

"If our solar system is not unusual, then there are so many planets in the universe that, for example, they outnumber the sum of all sounds and words ever uttered by every human who has ever lived. To declare that Earth must be the only planet with life in the universe would be inexcusably bigheaded of us." - Neil Degrasse Tyson

"When you speak directly at things and don't say you're going to try to do something or that you hope to do something, the universe will work with you.

"I will not let a political party tell me how to live, when to die or what to believe in.

But when the people around you have lost their will to be free, then earth becomes a hell." - Ma Jian

'Cause the Earth release ganja. The Earth release herbs." - Lee “Scratch” Perry

"The whole universe was stilled as if listening for a voice. For the space of one heartbeat there was peace on earth.

Existence rested against the heart of God, then sighed and journeyed again." - Elizabeth Goudge

"We must not be forced to explore the universe in search of a new home because we have made the Earth inhospitable, even uninhabitable. For if we do not solve the environmental and related social problems that beset us on Earth - pollution, toxic contamination, resource depletion, prejudice, poverty, hunger - those problems will surely accompany us to other worlds." - Donald G. Kaufman

"Middle-earth is a universe I know very well." - Andy Serkis

"Science has an uncomfortable way of pushing human beings from center stage. In our prescientific stories, humans began as the focal point of Nature, living on an Earth that was the center of the universe. As the origins of the Earth and of mankind were investigated more carefully, it became clear that Nature had other interests beyond people, and the Earth was less central than previously hoped. Humankind was just one branch of the great family of life, and the Earth is a smallish planet orbiting an unexceptional sun quite far out on one arm of a run-of-the-mill spiral galaxy." - Seth Lloyd

"And the meek shall inherit the earth," - Geddy Lee

"The age of the Earth is a hotly debated issue among evangelicals. Old Earthers believe, like most scientists, that the universe is billions of years old. Young Earthers measure the age of the universe in terms of thousands of years." - Norman Geisler

"In the older view the goddess Universe was alive, herself organically the Earth, the horizon, and the heavens. Now she is dead, and the universe is not an organism, but a building, with gods at rest in it in luxury: not as personifications of the energies in their manners of operation, but as luxury tenants, requiring service. And Man, accordingly, is not as a child born to flower in the knowledge of his own eternal portion but as a robot fashioned to serve." - Joseph Campbell

"Given the millions of billions of Earth-like planets, life elsewhere in the Universe without a doubt, does exist. In the vastness of the Universe we are not alone." - Albert Einstein

"Now and again, it is necessary to seclude yourself among deep mountains and hidden valleys to restore your link to the source of life. Breathe in and let yourself soar to the ends of the universe; breathe out and bring the cosmos back inside. Next, breathe up all fecundity and vibrancy of the earth. Finally, blend the breath of heaven and the breath of earth with your own, becoming the Breath of Life itself." - Morihei Ueshiba

"The little space within the heart is as great as the vast universe. The heavens and the earth are there, and the sun and the moon and the stars. Fire and lightening and winds are there, and all that now is and all that is not." - Swami Prabhavananda

"The Universe is circles within circles, and everything is one circle, and all the circles are connected to each other. Each family is a circle, and those family circles connect together and make a community, and the community makes its circle where it lives on the Earth. It (the community) cares for that part (of the Earth) but cares for it as a circle - which is to say in a cooperative and egalitarian way, where everybody is cared for, and everybody is respected." - Black Elk

"The total number of stars in the Universe is larger than all the grains of sand on all the beaches of the planet Earth." - Carl Sagan

"The whole Earth is at the hand of the wise man, since the fatherland of an elevated soul is the Universe." - Democritus

"The cosmic calendar compresses the local history of the universe into a single year. If the universe began on January 1st it was not until May that the Milky Way formed. Other planetary systems may have appeared in June, July and August, but our Sun and Earth not until mid-September. Life arose soon after. We humans appear on the cosmic calendar so recently that our recorded history occupies only the last few seconds of the last minute of December 31st" - Carl Sagan

"As our mother earth is a mere speck in the sunbeam in the illimitable universe, so man himself is but a tiny grain of protoplasm in the perishable framework of organic nature. [This] clearly indicates the true place of man in nature, but it dissipates the prevalent illusion of man's supreme importance and the arrogance with which he sets himself apart from the illimitable universe and exalts himself to the position of its most valuable element." - Ernst Haeckel

"(Man,) the glory and the scandal of the universe." - Blaise Pascal

"Modern neurosis began with the discoveries of Copernicus. Science made men feel small by showing him that the earth was not the center of the universe." - Mary Mccarthy

"The earth is, of course, not the geometric center of the universe. But it is certainly the center of our lives." - David Roochnik

"Modern neurosis began with the discoveries of Copernicus. Science made man feel small by showing him that the earth was not the center of the universe." - Mary Mccarthy
