Moving quote Mondays [1]

“Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics. You are all stardust. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded. Because the elements, the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution weren’t created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars. And the only way they could get into your body is if the stars were kind enough to explode. So forget Jesus. The stars died so you could be here today.”

Lawrence Krauss (via allhailtheinfidel) (via ageofreason, neightkelly)

“Someone once told me the definition of Hell: The last day you have on earth, the person you became will meet the person you could have become.”


“I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

-Michael Jordan


  1. So few people know the truth conveyed by the first quote! Yes, all the atoms in our body were forged in the hearts of exploding stars!

  2. Oke you just sold me MJ still number one.

  3. Brill quote, never give up

  4. mmmm do not like any of those

  5. I like those quotes (except the last one). Especially the second, as the first seems to have an anti-religious touch.
