  • "The universe puts us in places we can learn. They are never easy places, but they are right. Wherever we are is the right place at the right time. The pain that sometimes comes is part of the process of constantly being born."
  • "The molecules of your body are the same molecules that make up this station, and the nebula outside. They burn inside the stars themselves. We are star stuff.
