Now, It can be scary and make us all feel small, but the world is so exquisite and filled with so much love and moral depth, that there is no reason to deceive ourselves with empty comforts. Far better is to look death in the eye and to be grateful every day for the brief but magnificent opportunity that life provides.
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 like him. Marvel at the realization that the nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, and the carbon in our wedding rings were all forged inside the hearts of of collapsing stars. We are all of us made of starstuff.
If that too leaves you alone and afraid, there’s only one thing we’ve found in all of our searching that can make the emptiness bearable, and that is each other.
For small creatures such as we, the vastness is only truly bearable through love.
—Carl Sagan  (via ismiamora)
