Human life is a gift to be cherished.


This brilliant comic by captures a quote from Carl Sagan from 1996 while he himself was facing death. 

It’s hard to argue the logic of a man who practically invented widely accessible science, and who’s passion for the universe and learning was truly palpable.

Whether you are religious or not the sense of not taking life for granted, respecting the other humans who live on this planet so that we might all live to our fullest potential is universal.

While Atheists may not have a book to rely on for moral compass they have icons like Sagan who remind them the universe is a massive and humbling expanse.

Human life as we know it is finite but we are a part of something infinite and beautiful.

Human life is a gift to be cherished.

The brief but magnificent opportunity that life provides - carl sagan
