Good Quotations: Master Of The Universe

“He taught the whole world. What a wonderful life!”

— Scientist Jay Gould, in reference to Carl Sagan

Sagan’s personal papers — including hypothesis, journals, fan mail, and correspondence with various scientists and fissured ceramics — have been obtained by the Library of Congress thanks to the unlikely collaborative efforts of Neil deGrasse Tyson and Seth MacFarlane. Some 800 boxes of Sagan’s documents will be sorted through and preserved, placing the master of the universe in good company–the library possesses the papers of Alexander Graham Bell, the Wright brothers, J. Robert Oppenheimer, and Margaret Mead, too.
