Galaxies quotes:

  • A hundred thousand million Stars make one Galaxy; A hundred thousand million Galaxies make one Universe. The figures may not be very trustworthy, but I think they give a correct impression. -- Arthur Eddington
  • There could be shadow galaxies, shadow stars, and even shadow people. -- Stephen Hawking
  • There are at least as many galaxies in our observable universe as there are stars in our galaxy. -- Martin Rees
  • I am a being of Heaven and Earth, of thunder and lightning, of rain and wind, of the galaxies. -- Eden Ahbez
  • Nature hasn't gone anywhere. It is all around us, all the planets, galaxies and so on. We are nothing in comparison. -- Bjork
  • I always think of space-time as being the real substance of space, and the galaxies and the stars just like the foam on the ocean. -- George Smoot
  • There may be aliens in our Milky Way galaxy, and there are billions of other galaxies. The probability is almost certain that there is life somewhere in space. -- Buzz Aldrin
  • For example, if the big bang had been one-part-in-a billion more powerful, it would have rushed out too fast for the galaxies to form and for life to begin. -- Robert Lanza
  • It bears mentioning that the Milky Way is only one of 150 billion galaxies visible to our telescopes - and each of these will have its own complement of planets. -- Seth Shostak
  • I have to believe there's some other life force out there. I don't know in what form. But we can't have all these galaxies and universes without something going on. -- John Travolta
  • Traditional science assumes, for the most part, that an objective observer independent reality exists; the universe, stars, galaxies, sun, moon and earth would still be there if no one was looking. -- Deepak Chopra
  • It's everywhere, really. It's between the galaxies. It is in this room. We believe that everywhere that you have space, empty space, that you cannot avoid having some of this dark energy. -- Adam Riess
  • What a lonely species we are, searching for signals of life from other galaxies, adopting companion animals, visiting parks and zoos to commune with other beasts. In the process, we discover our shared identity. -- Diane Ackerman
  • Our galaxy's pretty ordinary, garden-variety. So if we believe our galaxy has a super massive black hole, that tells us that most, if not all, galaxies host such a black hole at their centers. -- Andrea M. Ghez
  • If you take a galaxy and try to make it bigger, it becomes a cluster of galaxies, not a galaxy. If you try to make it smaller than that, it seems to blow itself apart. -- Jeremiah P. Ostriker
  • There are lots of ideas which extend the Copernican principle one step further. We went from the solar system to the galaxy to zillions of galaxies and now to realising even that isn't all there is. -- Martin Rees
  • The farther we peer into space, the more we realize that the nature of the universe cannot be understood fully by inspecting spiral galaxies or watching distant supernovas. It lies deeper. It involves our very selves. -- Robert Lanza
  • Who are we? We find that we live on an insignificant planet of a humdrum star lost in a galaxy tucked away in some forgotten corner of a universe in which there are far more galaxies than people. -- Carl Sagan
  • I've read that a naked eye can see six thousand stars in the hundred billion galaxies, but I couldn't believe it, what with the sky white with starlight. I saw a million stars with one eye and two million with both. -- William Least Heat-Moon
  • The ultimate aim of all science to penetrate the unknown. Do you realize we know less about the earth we live on than about the stars and the galaxies of outer space? The greatest mystery is right here, right under our feet. -- Walter Reisch
  • Our galaxy, the Milky Way, is one of 50 or 100 billion other galaxies in the universe. And with every step, every window that modern astrophysics has opened to our mind, the person who wants to feel like they're the center of everything ends up shrinking. -- Neil deGrasse Tyson
  • The stars look the same from night to night. Nebulae and galaxies are dully immutable, maintaining the same overall appearance for thousands or millions of years. Indeed, only the sun, moon and planets - together with the occasional comet, asteroid or meteor - seem dynamic. -- Seth Shostak
  • Don't you see what's at stake here? The ultimate aim of all science to penetrate the unknown. Do you realize we know less about the earth we live on than about the stars and the galaxies of outer space? The greatest mystery is right here, right under our feet. -- Walter Reisch
  • In the end, all that time I spent in the 'Star Wars' universe fostered galaxies of creativity and made me a better person here on Earth, because it taught me that everyone counts. That's why I can sincerely and with a straight face say: 'May the Force be with you.' -- Chris Hardwick
  • The principal reason for the universe's poker face is that its constituents are far away. Stars careen through space, and galaxies spin at speeds thousands of times faster than a jet plane. But given their distance, you'd need the patience of Job to notice much change in their appearance or position. -- Seth Shostak
  • String theory has the potential to show that all of the wondrous happenings in the universe - from the frantic dance of subatomic quarks to the stately waltz of orbiting binary stars; from the primordial fireball of the big bang to the majestic swirl of heavenly galaxies - are reflections of one, grand physical principle, one master equation. -- Brian Greene
  • Philosophically, the universe has really never made things in ones. The Earth is special and everything else is different? No, we've got seven other planets. The sun? No, the sun is one of those dots in the night sky. The Milky Way? No, it's one of a hundred billion galaxies. And the universe - maybe it's countless other universes. -- Neil deGrasse Tyson
  • I'm going to dance in all the galaxies. -- Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

  • She was a universe holding a billion galaxies in her heart. -- Pradeep Kumar
  • Worlds may change, galaxies disintegrate, but a woman always remains a woman -- James Kirk
  • The chakras in your body are as to galaxies on the body of God. -- L.J. Vanier
  • Every time feet move in search of dance, lips find smiles million galaxies wide. -- Shah Asad Rizvi
  • We're all worth it, man. We're all worth millions of planets and stars and galaxies and universes. -- River Phoenix
  • God loves us for ourselves. He values our love more than he values galaxies of new created worlds. -- Aiden Wilson Tozer
  • Where nature goes to create stars, galaxies, quarks and leptons, you and I also go to create ourselves. -- Deepak Chopra
  • The world inside myself is vaster and richer than this paltry plane, peopled with mere galaxies and gods. -- Rachel Hartman
  • Never apologize for burning too brightly or collapsing into yourself every night. That is how galaxies are made. -- Tyler Kent
  • When I die I'm going to dance first in all the galaxies...I'm gonna play and dance and sing. -- Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
  • The singing Sun the signing moon the singing stars and the singing galaxies are the direct expression of the divine word AUM. -- Amit Ray
  • That's starting to depress me about UFOs. The fact that they cross galaxies...and always end up in places like Fyfe, Alabama. -- Bill Hicks
  • You see, this universe we inhabit is made up of billions of galaxies literally beyond counting and this is only one universe. -- Stephen R. Lawhead
  • Dark matter is needed to hold galaxies together. Your mind is a Galaxy. More dark than light. But the light makes it worthwhile. -- Matt Haig
  • In 5 billion years, the expansion of the universe will have progressed to the point where all other galaxies will have receded beyond detection. -- Lawrence M. Krauss
  • Seeing outward is equivalent to looking backward in time because the telescope's mirror is capturing primeval light... galaxies that existed before our time. -- Richard Preston
  • I have never been able to entertain a God-idea which was not integrally related to the fact of chipmunks, squirrels, hippopotamuses, galaxies, and light years. -- Joseph Sittler
  • There is my body, in it an ocean formed of his glory, all the creation, all the universes, all the galaxies, are lost in it. -- Rumi
  • Apparently, a great deal of dark, unseen material exists, whose gravitational pull is responsible for the motions of the stars and galaxies that we see. -- John D. Barrow
  • Understanding the history of matter and searching for its most interesting forms, such as galaxies, stars, planets and life, seems a suitable use for our intelligence. -- Robert Kirshner
  • There are reasons, increasing in number and quality, to believe that the masses of ordinary galaxies may have been underestimated by a factor of 10 or more. -- Jeremiah P. Ostriker
  • The universe contains vastly more order than Earth-life could ever demand. All those distant galaxies, irrelevant for our existence, seem as equally well ordered as our own. -- Paul Davies
  • Where-so-ever beings exist throughout all galaxies, it doesn't make any difference - you are all of them....and when they come into being, that's you coming into being. -- Alan Watts
  • 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. -- Carl Sagan
  • All the stars all the galaxies are in the same spot night after night after night. And Planet Nine, when we see it, will slowly move across the sky. -- Mike Brown
  • They've discovered that, where all the other galaxies are moving in one direction, ours is going in another. Now, the Big Bang theory says that we're all moving outward. -- Dwight Schultz
  • Human relations just are not fixed in their orbits like the planets -- they're more like galaxies, changing all the time, exploding into light for years, then dying away. -- May Sarton
  • There is nothing better than giving up everything and stepping into a passionate love relationship with God, the God of the universe who made galaxies, leaves, laughter, and me and you. -- Francis Chan
  • Sometimes I sit alone under the stars and think of the galaxies inside my heart and truly wonder if anyone will ever want to make sense of all that I am -- Christopher Poindexter
  • If all the stars and galaxies in the universe today were smoothed out into a uniform sea of atoms, there would only be about one atom in every cubic meter of space. -- John D. Barrow
  • We all live in our own world. But if you look up at the starry sky - you'll see that all the different worlds up there combine to form constellations, solar systems, galaxies. -- Paulo Coelho
  • I want [my daughter] to look at the world through the underside of a glass-bottom boat, to look through a microscope at the galaxies that exist on the pinpoint of a human mind. -- Sarah Kay
  • The immense distances to the stars and the galaxies mean that we see everything ins pace int he past, some as they were before the Earth came to be. Telescopes are time machines. -- Carl Sagan
  • It still amazes me how many millions goes to discovering another star in the galaxies when, for all we know, we are still sitting on top of another undiscovered world beneath out feet -- Martin Dansky
  • Such delusions of grandeur to think that a God with a hundred billion galaxies on his mind would give a tuppenny damn who you sleep with, or indeed whether you believe in him. -- Richard Dawkins
  • Big fish eats small fish; oceans need revolution! Big man beats little man; world needs revolution! Big galaxies swallow little galaxies; universe needs revolution! Anything which is not ethical needs a strong revolution! -- Mehmet Murat ildan
  • We must see that consciousness is neither an isolated soul nor the mere function of a single nervous system, but of that totality of interrelated stars and galaxies which makes a nervous system possible. -- Alan Watts
