What is love?
In English, a language;
In Math, a problem;
In History, war;
In Geography, a mountain;
In Chemistry, a reaction
and
In a painting, a heart.

When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully. When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light. When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it. When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway. When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back. When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some. When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going. When times are tough, dare to be tougher. When love hurts you, dare to love again. When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal. When another is lost, dare to help them find the way. When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand. When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile. When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great, too. When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best. Dare to be the best you can — At all times, Dare to be!~ Steve Maraboli

Thank you for posting.*with tears in my eyes*
Sagan was not blind to our faults but he had such hope for our species.
I can remember Sagen talking about SETI not finding "anything" meaning it could be construed that the technical age may not survive, one of the thoughts that drew me to low cost self sustainability

I cant find the quote

Could this be it?
"We've arranged a civilization in which most crucial elements profoundly depend on science and technology." - Dr. Carl Sagan

From what I have read of Sagan, he believed that technological civilizations would self-destruct before maturing into spacefaring ones.

"Sagan believed that the Drake equation, on substitution of reasonable estimates, suggested that a large number of extraterrestrial civilizations would form, but that the lack of evidence of such civilizations highlighted by the Fermi paradox suggests technological civilizations tend to self-destruct. This stimulated his interest in identifying and publicizing ways that humanity could destroy itself, with the hope of avoiding such a cataclysm and eventually becoming a spacefaring species."

He was very hopeful but still a realist.
