Living on a star

If we once realize all this earth as it is, we should find ourselves in a land of miracles:

We shall discover a new planet at the moment
that we discover our own.

Among all the strange things that men have forgotten, the most universal and catastrophic lapse of memory is that by which they have forgotten that they are living on a star.

–G. K. Chesterton¬†(1874 – 1936)
