Kurt Vonnegut: Human Life as a Space Voyage -A Galaxy Insight

Rocketsforspacetravelgicleeprintc1 "I love you sons of bitches. You're all I read any more. You're the only ones who'll talk all about the really terrific changes going on, the only ones crazy enough to know that life is a space voyage, and not a short one, either, but one that'll last for billions of years. You're the only ones with guts enough to really care about the future, who really notice what machines do to us, what wars do to us, what cities do to us, what big, simple ideas do to what tremendous misunderstanding, mistakes, accidents, catastrophes do to us. You're the only ones zany enough to agonize over time and distance without limit, over mysteries that will never die, over the fact that we are right now determining whether the space voyage for the next billion years or so is going to be Heaven or Hell."
 
Spoken by Eliot Rosewater to a group of science fiction writers in Vonnegut's underrated masterpiece, God Bless You Mr. Rosewater.
