"I love science, and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awed by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and reinvigorate it."

Robert M. Sapolsky (via utcjonesobservatory)

"And that’s what adulthood is: you wake from the nightmare and realize there’s no bigger bed to climb into."

"Don’t discount the remarkable human adventure that is modern science because it doesn’t console you."

Lawrence Krauss, A Universe From Nothing (via whats-out-there)

I don’t see how science could not be consoling. The human adventure has and always will be survival. We’ve needed one another to survive, and together, we’ve constructed tools which have aided in our ability to adapt, thrive, and enjoy being alive by understanding more about our environment and life itself. All of this we’ve gained through our innate curiosity and pursuit of knowledge to which we call science. Remaining in the dark about who, what, where, when, why, and how you are would be the loneliest and most discomforting life to endure. Carl Sagan said it best: Science is a candle in the dark.
