Be humble for you are made of earth; be noble for you are made of stars.

— Serbian proverb

Have you ever looked up at a clear night sky and felt the incredible significance of the sight before you? Stretching on to infinity is vast space, filled with other planets, asteroids, burning suns, spinning galaxies, supernovas, neutron stars, black holes.. and so much more that we may never see, even with the most powerful of telescopes. It is enormous, it is dynamic, and it is beautiful.
And there you are, this tiny speck on the surface of just one little planet, in just one solar system on the arm of just one galaxy, gazing up at it all, trying to comprehend it. You feel on the brink of epiphany, yet somehow the reality of it all is just too big to quite fit inside your head.
Every atom in your body has come from out there, somewhere. Everything you are made from once came exploding out of a supernova, maybe several supernovae, millions and billions of light-years from where you're standing right now. You are stardust: and billions of years of tinkering evolution by natural selection has shaped that into who you are. Despite the total feeling of insignificance that comprehending the universe gives you, it also makes you one of the most special and important things ever to exist.
Our story is the story of the universe. Every piece of everyone, of everything you love and everything you hate, of the thing you hold most precious, was assembled by the forces of nature, transformed in the hearts of the stars or created in their fiery deaths. And when you die, those pieces will be returned to the universe in the endless cycle of death and rebirth.
What a wonderful thing it is to be a part of that universe. What a story, what a majestic story.
— Professor Brian Cox
When you are having a bad day, think about just how incredible it is that you are alive. No matter your struggle, big or small, it helps you appreciate yourself just that much more. ♥

True... and we humans are so small, fragile and short lived compared to it.

Yes but how do you even know what universe looks like to begin with? Or what it actually is? Is this all based on the medias that portrayed the universe of how you really view it? Reality is more stranger than the myths that were spoon fed to us.
