    "The molecules of your body are the same molecules that make up this station and the nebula outside, that burn inside the stars themselves. We are starstuff, we are the universe made manifest, trying to figure itself out. As we have both learned, sometimes the universe requires a change of perspective."

If you look at the social dynamic around them, they actually didn't do anything. They were the open vessels in which people poured their hopes and their dreams. That sets up sort of a gestalt, where events take on a life of their own."

No way out and no where to go."

That's how much they hate us."

    Every day, here and at home, we are warned about the enemy. But who is the enemy? Is it the alien? Well, we are all alien to one another. Is it the one who believes differently than we do? No. Oh, no, my friends.
    The enemy is fear.
    The enemy is ignorance.
    The enemy is the one who tells you that you must hate that which is different.
    Because in the end, that hate will turn on you and that same hate will destroy you.

All we can do now is wait for the other shoe to drop or try and find something useful to do before the end. Right now, short of hand holding, or sympathetic ear, I can't think of one damn thing."
