i have found something that makes me feel so happy: carl sagan’s cosmos. many thanks to my friend michael for showing me this incredible series!
bandwagon, blah blah, but his excitement is overflowing and contagious. his vocabulary and style of talking were both precise and beautiful. for some reason, just hearing his voice cheers me up so much. i was interested in space as a kid but lost the desire to learn about it for years, until space became trendy recently, and although cosmos was filmed thirty years ago it remains relevant today.
the things carl sagan said just lift my heart indescribably.
“if you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first create the universe”
“the cosmos is also within us. we’re made of star-stuff. we are a way for the cosmos to know itself.”
and here you can watch the entire series legally, for free, on youtube.
