"Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam."

This shirt is based on Carl Sagan’s speech on the finiteness and minuteness of our lives on Earth. It’s one of my favourite speeches of all time.

For those who don’t know Carl Sagan, he is an astronomer who was a teacher of physics and astronomy to the general public. He had the unique ability to place these discoveries in the context of our lives. This speech demonstrates that.
