Achingly Rare and Lovely

 "The Earth is a place. It is by no means the only place. It not even a typical place. No planet or star or galaxy can be typical, because the Cosmos is mostly empty. The only typical place is within the vast, cold, universal vacuum, the everlasting night of intergalactic space, a place so strange and desolate that, by comparison, planets and stars and galaxies seem achingly rare and lovely." - Carl Sagan's Cosmos
