“Friends, with your help and love you have shown us how to make sense of the world, and when the world hasn’t made any sense at all you told us to sit back and enjoy it; you taught us what’s right, what’s real, what’s beautiful about this planet, and for that we are eternally grateful.”
– Richard Solomon
Had that quotation not begun with “Friends,” I might have thought it a tribute to Carl Sagan.
Happy new year! :)
