No one really knows why they are alive until they know what they’d die for
Martin Luther King Jr. (via psych-facts)
Astrology developed into a strange discipline: a mixture of careful observation, mathematics and record-keeping, but rife with fuzzy thinking and pious fraud. Nevertheless: it survived and flourished. Why? Because it seems to lend a cosmic significance to the routine of our daily lives. It pretends to satisfy our longing to feel personally connected to the universe.
Carl Sagan (via revn)
