Carl Sagan
May, 1999

 The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena...The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand.

Graduation Commencement Address at Trinity College University, 2004

My favorite animal is the turtle. The reason is that in order for the turtle to move, it has to stick its neck out. There are going to be times in your life when you’re going to have to stick your neck out. There will be challenges and instead of hiding in a shell, you have to go out and meet them.

Elias A. Zerhouni

Commencement Address at MIT, 2004

Have big dreams. You know, it's very simple. You can't put a large box in a small box. Well, you cannot put a full life in a small dream box.

Kirk Schneider

Commencement Address San Francisco State University

 We're not just gathered here on a lovely May day in an ordinary auditorium at SF state. We're all strapped in, seated together on a gigantic ball whirling around the sun at 67,000 miles per hour, nested in a galaxy hurtling through the depths of space and time at 1.3 million miles per hour.
