“When you get into your car, shut the door and be there for just half a minute. Breathe, feel the energy inside your body, look around at the sky, the trees. The mind might tell you, ‘I don’t have time.’ But that’s the mind talking to you. Even the busiest person has time for 30 seconds of space.”

― Eckhart Tolle

“Half the shows on Comedy Central are just multi-cam blue sets, and they kind of look like game shows from the ’90s. It’s like, ‘Why do such a bland corporate aesthetic when the sky’s the limit with what you can do?’”

― Eric Andre

“Our passionate preoccupation with the sky, the stars, and a God somewhere in outer space is a homing impulse. We are drawn back to where we came from.”

― Eric Hoffer

“In the eye of the tornado, there’s no more high and low, no floor and sky.”

― Francis Alys

“The way of fortune is like the milkyway in the sky; which is a number of small stars, not seen asunder, but giving light together: so it is a number of little and scarce discerned virtues, or rather faculties and customs, that make men fortunate.”

― Francis Bacon

― Francis Parkman

“We have chased away the clouds, the sky is all ‘rose.’”

― Francois Hollande

“People presume we’ve been somehow monitoring the entire sky at all frequencies, all the time, but we haven’t yet been able to do any of those things. The fact is, all the SETI efforts to date have only closely examined a couple thousand nearby stars, and we’re only just now learning which of those might have promising planets.”

― Frank Drake

― Frank Drake

“The sky is the limit. You never have the same experience twice.”

― Frank McCourt

“I’m like Albert Schweitzer and Bertrand Russell and Albert Einstein in that I have a respect for life – in any form. I believe in nature, in the birds, the sea, the sky, in everything I can see or that there is real evidence for. If these things are what you mean by God, then I believe in God.”

“You cannot get involved in debate on ‘MOTD’. You can do it on Sky because they’ve got hours and hours. We’ve got a couple of minutes. It’s a very disciplined show. Our primary purpose is to show the action, and the analysis is very secondary. We have lots of people who would prefer no analysis. We have lots of people who would prefer more analysis.”

― Gary Lineker

― Grandma Moses

“New York has arguably become the quintessential 1 percent city, a city that has been so given over to the rich that you now have to be rich to live here. Or not live here: New York’s also a preferred destination for foreign money spent on vast, lifeless apartments in the sky that are occupied a couple of weeks a year at most.”

― Graydon Carter

“Sure, I can afford a nice car and a nice place, but this is not what brings me happiness. Now you’re on a high, and people know you and things like that, but how many people will remember your name once it all stops and the money isn’t raining from the sky?”

― Grigor Dimitrov

“When you love a man, he becomes more than a body. His physical limbs expand, and his outline recedes, vanishes. He is rich and sweet and right. He is part of the world, the atmosphere, the blue sky and the blue water.”

― Henryk Sienkiewicz

“A city is where you can sign a petition, boo the chief justice, fish off a pier, gaze at a hippopotamus, buy a flower at the corner, or get a good hamburger or a bad girl at 4 A.M. A city is where sirens make white streaks of sound in the sky and foghorns speak in dark grays. San Francisco is such a city.”

“Radio astronomers study radio waves from space using sensitive antennas and receivers, which give them precise information about what an astronomical object is and where it is in our night sky. And just like the signals that we send and receive here on Earth, we can convert these transmissions into sound using simple analog techniques.”

― Honor Harger

“The deadnettle is the Punxsutawney Phil of the plant world: short of stature but stout of heart. At the first hint of winter’s wane, its stem rises from the ground, and a green, grasping hand of sepals unclenches to divulge two silky-white petals, one of which unfurls straight up toward the sky.”

― Hope Jahren

“How does a cosmos without a bearded, bathrobed God in the sky pull off all the things that a bearded, bathrobed guy in the sky was supposed to have pulled off? If there was no God who said ‘Let there be light,’ where did we get all that light?”

― Iris Apfel

“I get up every morning early, when the sky is red, and write for 10 hours.”

― Isabella Bird

“My mother tongue, Mende, is very expressive, very figurative, and when I write, I always struggle to find the English equivalent of things that I really want to say in Mende. For example, in Mende, you wouldn’t say ‘night came suddenly’; you would say ‘the sky rolled over and changed its sides.’”

― Ishmael Beah

“As a kid in Africa, you were so connected to nature itself because you went farming, watched the moon out at night, observed how the sky was different, and how the birds chanted different songs in the evening and the morning.”

― Ishmael Beah

“There is no shortage of embarrassing facts about healthcare, and people die every day in the U.S. due to preventable errors – would you fly planes if you knew several of them would drop out of the sky every day?”

― Jack Keane

“My witness is the empty sky.”

― Jack Kerouac

“Sense the blessings of the earth in the perfect arc of a ripe tangerine, the taste of warm, fresh bread, the circling flight of birds, the lavender color of the sky shining in a late afternoon rain puddle, the million times we pass other beings in our cars and shops and out among the trees without crashing, conflict, or harm.”

“We think we receive all that we perceive, but in fact, we actually give the sky its colour.”

― James Turrell

“I took a lot of influences from Studio Ghibli, which is the Japanese animation studio that made ‘Spirited Away’ and ‘Castle in the Sky.’ They’re like the Japanese version of Disney – but without all the schmaltz.”

“Confidence is sky high, but we’re also all very grounded. We know, in football, nothing can be taken for granted.”

― Jamie Vardy

“The tree I had in the garden as a child, my beech tree, I used to climb up there and spend hours. I took my homework up there, my books, I went up there if I was sad, and it just felt very good to be up there among the green leaves and the birds and the sky.”

― Jane Goodall

“We would look up at the night sky together, and although Stephen wasn’t actually very good at detecting constellations, he would tell me about the expanding universe and the possibility of it contracting again and describe a star collapsing in on itself to form a black hole in a way that was quite easy to understand.”

― Jane Hawking

“When you’re in the closet, you feel like the sky will fall down if anyone finds out. A lot of the fear is self-generated.”

“Going around under an umbrella interferes with one’s looking up at the sky.”

“There’s something about the air and the sky and the atmosphere in the South of France that must be very conducive to work, to being creative, because I have written several of my books there.

“In the field of astronomy in the mid-’60s, quasars were very sexy objects – gigantic, star-like masses about which little was known. I was a graduate research student at Cambridge working towards my Ph.D. and chose quasars as the subject for my thesis. Part of my project involved surveying the sky for them using a radio telescope.”

― John Dyer

“The colors I choose there was to paint the first hotel, the Disneyland Hotel. Because of the cloudy sky we had in Paris, it had to be a particular kind of color who will fight those grey days. And also something you can see when you’re driving up ‘There it is! We’re arriving!’”

― John Hench

“I grew up in Hong Kong, and London used to seem very gray: the sky was gray, the buildings were gray, the food was incredibly gray – the food had, like, new kinds of grayness specially invented for it.”

― John Legend

“I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It’s just that the translations have gone wrong.”

― John Lennon

― John Lubbock

“All indications are that three and a half billion years ago, Mars looked like Earth. It had lakes. It had rivers. It had river deltas. It had snow-capped peaks and puffy clouds and blue sky. Three and a half billion years ago, it was a happening place. The same time on Earth, that’s when life started. So did life start on Mars?”

― John M. Grunsfeld

“I have an idea about building almost like a studio for some of the best Tropfest filmmakers, so they can come together and support and be given space and resources they need to tell great stories year around, so it’s not just about the festivals. You know, the sky’s the limit with this thing, and I’m still making it up as I go along.”

― John Polson

“With ‘Greek Gods,’ I wanted to go with the blue and green hues of sky and water; with ‘Heroes,’ I felt the color needed to be more dramatic and give a sense of battle, rage, and yes, of blood. That’s the world these demigods lived in, and I felt that orange and red would also compliment the greenish blue of the ‘Gods’ cover.”

― John Trudell

“Rain is grace; rain is the sky descending to the earth; without rain, there would be no life.”

“Mars has long exerted a pull on the human imagination. The erratically moving red star in the sky was seen as sinister or violent by the ancients: The Greeks identified it with Ares, the god of war; the Babylonians named it after Nergal, god of the underworld. To the ancient Chinese, it was Ying-huo, the fire planet.”

“I hope to have more time to think, to look at the sky, dealing with less crisis management, to learn another language, to travel.”

― Juliet Stevenson

“I was born in Swindon… a place that always looked west. I found that wherever I go I love to have a room with a view of the western sky. My late brother and I, when we were small, had a room at the back of the house that overlooked the sunset; and both for he and I it was kind of magical.”

― Kara DioGuardi

“I just want get to as high as I can go. I think that’s the safest and most politically correct thing I can say. I’m not trying to take anyone’s spot. I want to create my own lane and shoot to the sky.”

― Kat Graham

“One thing I love about being back is English rain. Looking out of the window now, it’s raining, and the sky is dark; I love it. To me, those are reassuringly English things. I love it when it rains.”

― Kate Winslet

“I was the one with a subscription to ‘Sky and Telescope’ magazine as a kid while my friends were reading ‘Tiger Beat.’”

― Kathleen Rubins

“The sky is the limit as long as you keep the rooms practical, and I have become better at that since I had children. Function, form and organisation are all important.”

― Kelly Wearstler

“Our mind is like a cloudy sky: in essence clear and pure, but overcast by clouds of delusions. Just as the thickest clouds can disperse, so, too, even the heaviest delusions can be removed from our mind.”

― Kelsang Gyatso

“You’ve got to get out and pray to the sky to appreciate the sunshine; otherwise you’re just a lizard standing there with the sun shining on you.”

“A certain recluse, I know not who, once said that no bonds attached him to this life, and the only thing he would regret leaving was the sky.”

― Kenko Yoshida

“Flying into a storm, even its outer edges, did not seem like a good idea to me. And this was no ordinary tempest. Everyone on the bridge knew what it was: the Devil’s Fist, a near-eternal typhoon that migrated about the North Indian basin year-round. She was infamous, and earned her name by striking airships out of the sky.”

― Kenneth Oppel

“I feel like, Estonia, the sky is so low, and the people are much more close-minded than in America. So when I came to the U.S., I had a massive explosion of creativity and felt like I could do basically anything I want.”

― Kerli

“I won’t have a standout moment until I perform at the VMAs, meet Ryan Gosling, and hug Sky Ferreira.”

― Kevin Abstract

“The most challenging work and the best work I’ve ever done was in a thing I did for PBS called ‘Lemon Sky’, a play by Lanford Wilson. I think it’s the rawest, most complex work that I’ve had to do, and the thing I’m most proud of.”

― Kevin Bacon

“The good thing about having chemistry is, when you get to the improv section of a scene, you’ve got somebody to feed off. It can go on and on and on, and the sky’s the limit.”

― Kevin Hart

“’24’ and 20th Century Fox and Sky TV are not responsible for training the U.S. military. It is not our job to do. To me, this is almost as absurd as saying, ‘The Sopranos’ supports the mafia, and by virtue of that, HBO supports the mafia.’”

― Kiefer Sutherland

“I live in Wales but spend quite a lot of time in London – I stay with my brother. When I get home after being in Manchester or London for a bit, I forget how dark the sky is, and I won’t have seen stars for ages.”

― Kimberley Nixon

“I absolutely love writing and sharing my enthusiasm with students, and because of ‘Hattie Big Sky,’ Montana holds a special place in my heart.”

― Kirby Larson

“I sold ‘Hattie Big Sky’ without an agent but quickly realized a writing career required an agent.”

“I’m not the religious-conspiracy-theorist go-to guy, particularly. But I think it’s really kind of silly to try to equate birds falling out of the sky with some kind of an end-times theory.”

― Kirk Cameron

“Put a bird cage near the window so that the bird can see the sky? It’s much better to look than not to, even if it hurts.”

― Klaus Kinski

“Winterfell is atop of this huge mountain in Northern Ireland, and you can see all these weather fronts coming in. Basically, the sky circles the mountain. It’s the most beautiful place.”

“I am not some goddess that dropped down from the sky to sing pop music; I am not some extra-incredible human person that needs to be told how wonderful they are all day and kissed.”

― Lady Gaga

“’All in With Laila Ali’ is educational, inspirational, compelling programming profiling individuals that have reached for the sky, pushed themselves to the limit and did things that you would think were impossible.”

― Laila Ali

“Gospel songs to me are about the mansion in the sky, and washed in the blood of Christ’s crimson blood, songs that are filled with biblical wording that’s no longer understood by a lot of people.”

― Larry Norman

“My favorite show tune has got to be Stephen Sondheim’s ‘I Remember Sky.’ It’s probably the saddest song of all time; I sing it to myself in the mirror. No, I am kidding. That’s the joke.”

― Laura Benanti

“The enormous lake stretched flat and smooth and white all the way to the edge of the gray sky. Wagon tracks went away across it, so far that you could not see where they went; they ended in nothing at all.”

― Laura Ingalls Wilder

“But in the east the sky was pale and through the gray woods came lanterns with wagons and horses, bringing Grandpa and Grandma and aunts and uncles and cousins.”

― Laura Ingalls Wilder

“The Bible is full of dubious scientific impossibilities, from Jonah living inside a whale, to the sun standing still in the sky for Joshua.”

― Lawrence M. Krauss

“For my parents, leaving the close social quarters of Abilene was like getting out of jail. They were not true West Texans; they had not come to love the unending monotony of mesquite barrens or the high, hot blue sky that made sunsets a matter of prayerful thankfulness.”

― Lawrence Wright

“Faith is not about serving some tyrant in the sky that says, ‘You need to get your act together.’ Faith is about having a loving father who says, ‘Hey, listen… I’m here with you. I’m going to hold your hand. Just rock with me.’”

― Lecrae

“Breathing in South Korea, even though the life here is not easy, makes me so happy. I feel that sitting in a coffee shop, having a cup of tea, and looking out of the window at the blue sky – this is happiness. Truly happiness.”

― Lee Hyeon-seo

“You look out on the street, and everyone has their heads in their phones. Nobody’s really looking up at the sky or the buildings and taking the day in. I try to be conscious of it, but everybody falls prey to it.”

― Lee Ranaldo

“Being a playwright is like the equivalent of doing a jigsaw puzzle that has 1,500 pieces, and it’s a jigsaw of a blue sky. Not a cloud in sight.”

― Lily Collins

“’Big Sky Mountain’ is the story of Hutch Carmody and Kendra Shepherd, lovers with a history, and a lot of hurt pride. The book is about finding their way back to each other, growing as people, and inventing a life they can share.”

― Linda Lael Miller

“I grew up in a big sky country. Then I lived in Manhattan, where you can only see the sky between buildings, and then I went into a building where you couldn’t see the sky at all. I didn’t like that so much.”

― Linda Ronstadt

“My hometown is a very boring city. There isn’t a lot of industry – there are a lot of trees. It’s not like Beijing where the sky is always dark. In my city the sky is blue and the sun shines.”

― Liu Wen

“As a female pilot, the sacred rose garden in my heart is the motherland’s blue sky.”

“From day one, I have been told I am no different from the male astronauts. As a pilot, I flew in the sky. Now that I am an astronaut, I will fly in space.”

“They don’t actually see the real world, where 95% of the people with HIV are not treated and are dying. And even though we have some blue sky now in our country, the sky could become cloudy again very soon.”

― Luc Montagnier

“Life is the fire that burns and the sun that gives light. Life is the wind and the rain and the thunder in the sky. Life is matter and is earth, what is and what is not, and what beyond is in Eternity.”

― Lucius Annaeus Seneca

“When I heard that there were artists, I wished I could some time be one. If I could only make a rose bloom on paper, I thought I should be happy! Or if I could at last succeed in drawing the outline of winter-stripped boughs as I saw them against the sky, it seemed to me that I should be willing to spend years in trying.”

― Lucy Larcom

“Growing up in Georgia, my dad was a farmer and we worked in agriculture, so we were always looking up at the sky, checking if rain was in the forecast. That always set the tone for the mood in my household, whether we had rain coming in or not – we knew the crops would be good and it was going to be a good week around the Bryan household.”

― Luke Bryan

“I advise, if you’re stymied by a passage or paragraph or plot point – whether it’s for an assignment from the outside world or one that comes only from within – get up from wherever you’re sitting, walk outdoors, and do nothing but look at the sky for five minutes. Just stare at that thing. Then execute a small bow and go back in.”

― Lydia Millet

“The atomic bomb certainly is the most powerful of all weapons, but it is conclusively powerful and effective only in the hands of the nation which controls the sky.”

― Lyndon B. Johnson

“Casper Wyo., population 18,000 when I was born, was large enough to hold the surprises of civilization, but small enough that the prairie was close by – for some in our town, right out the front door – stretching on forever, under the great curving sky.”

― Lynne Cheney

“I am trying to persuade my family to spend more time in China. It’s no fun to be in exile. I can’t even figure out the basic 26 letters, let alone operate, in English. I often feel that although I’ve found the sky of freedom above my head, I’ve lost the soil I stand on. I need to be back in my motherland, where I can find inspirations.”

― Ma Jian

“Beijing was such a different city. There were so few cars, I could walk in the middle of the road. In the summer, the streetlamps attracted swirling bugs. I loved those bugs: crickets, praying mantis, all kinds of beetles. I also have a vivid memory of dazzling sunlight coming out of the sky.”

― Ma Jun

“To allow millions of people to live together on limited land, we have to go to the sky; we have to build a high rise. But we can still build nature and social space into the towers. Each family can have their own courtyard in the sky.”

― Ma Yansong

“What if we treat the high-rise like a mountain, or we have gardens in the sky, or waterfalls? I think that’s the most challenging thing I want to try in my architecture.”

― Ma Yansong

“There must be a way to combine the high rise and high-density environment with nature. Maybe we can have our gardens in the sky.”

― Ma Yansong

“Using phrases or mantras to encourage and comfort myself has been a powerful practice for me. For years, I would say to myself ‘Remember the purple sky’ when I was feeling anxious, which to me meant remember a sense of internal spaciousness and kindness toward myself.”

― Maggie Rowe

“No matter how tough my life was, I was always looking up at the sky and wishing for good things.”

― Mahira Khan

“The first I paid to see with my own money was ‘Laputa Castle In The Sky.’ And I was like, wow! I really shocked by it. So I want to make movies that have a similar impact on the audience to that.”

“Once I had asked God for one or two extra inches in height, but instead, he made me as tall as the sky, so high that I could not measure myself… By giving me this height to reach people, he has also given me great responsibilities.”

― Malala Yousafzai

“I love watching the sunrise and sunset and the sky, the birds.”

“Qualified software engineers, managers, marketers and salespeople in Silicon Valley can rack up dozens of high-paying, high-upside job offers any time they want, while national unemployment and underemployment is sky high.”

― Marc Andreessen

“In the 40 years I’ve been working as an economist and investor, I have never seen such a disconnect between the asset market and the economic reality… Asset markets are in the sky, and the economy of the ordinary people is in the dumps, where their real incomes adjusted for inflation are going down and asset markets are going up.”

― Marc Faber

“Passion isn’t something that lives way up in the sky, in abstract dreams and hopes. It lives at ground level, in the specific details of what you’re actually doing every day.”

― Marcus Buckingham

“God and Nature first made us what we are, and then out of our own created genius we make ourselves what we want to be. Follow always that great law. Let the sky and God be our limit and Eternity our measurement.”

― Marilyn vos Savant

“I think the Earth and everything around it is connected – the sky and the planets and the stars and everything else we see as a mystery.”

― Marion Cotillard

“Now, ‘high-intensity conflict’ is a fancy word for saying tanks on tanks, aircraft shooting each other out of the sky, a great deal of violence at a level we haven’t seen since probably the Korean War or World War II, where you have big armies facing off against one another.”

― Mark Esper

“Today they’re praising you sky high, place you on a pedestal and tomorrow they don’t want to know you.”

― Mark McGrath

“Indeed, the night sky is the part of our environment that’s been common to all cultures throughout human history. All have gazed up at the ‘vault of heaven’ and interpreted it in their own way.”

― Martin Rees

“When I started out, it was considered very wrong to change an image. There were scandals if someone inserted a sky into a war picture or something. Now it’s all about that.”

― Mary Ellen Mark

“If you live in the States, you see the windmill signal on your smartphone all the time. It’s like living in Beijing air. You have to remember the blue sky.”

“Look at the sky; remind yourself of the cosmos. Seek vastness at every opportunity in order to see the smallness of yourself.”

― Matt Haig

“However much in the foreground depression feels, you are separate to it. This is going to sound cheesy, but I’d say you are the sky. A cloud comes and dominates the sky. But the sky is still the sky. Depression tells you everything is going to get worse, but that’s a symptom. Don’t give depression power – constantly discredit it.”

― Matt Haig

“If you’re given a chance, and you’re driven and obsessed and consumed when given the opportunity to prove people right, the sky is the limit.”

― Matt Nagy

“We have talented people, great businesses, and an unparalleled entrepreneurial spirit in Montana. By raising capital, Montanans can leverage those assets to start new businesses, expand existing ones, and create more good-paying jobs in Missoula and every other community under the Big Sky.”

“When we realize that human beings are entering the world constantly and that each being is stamped at the first complete breath with the planetary pattern then in the sky, everyone must necessarily be different from everybody else.”

― Max Heindel

“I always believe that the sky is the beginning of the limit.”

― MC Hammer

“A mother, after all, is your entry into the world. She is the shell in which you divide and become a life. Waking up in a world without her is like waking up in a world without sky: unimaginable.”

― Meghan O’Rourke

“As a navigator, I started studying astronomy because sometimes you’re not able to use the equipment, so you’d have to do it the old-fashioned way, figuring out what you were seeing in the sky.”

― Melvin Van Peebles

“The BBC does a sterling job, but I’d like to see it do more. ITV does four arts programmes a year; it used to be 28. At least Sky, with its two arts channels, is trying.”

― Melvyn Bragg

“There are two big beasts in the arts: the BBC and Sky Arts – challenging, leading the way.”

― Melvyn Bragg

“It’s amazing that Sky is the only place that has two dedicated arts channels. The BBC is doing very well… but why don’t they do more?”

― Melvyn Bragg

― Mia Goth

“The Indians believe all things have spirit – even the hail that comes from the sky is spirit. If you believe that, which I implicitly do, everything is alive.”

― Michael Ende

“When you write for an orchestra, the sky’s the limit.”

― Michael Giacchino

“I know there’s a lot of discussion about building a 2000-mile wall. I think we need to complete the Secure Fencing Act, but we need greater technology and aviation aspects down on the Southwest border so we can see the threat from the sky. Until you can see it, you don’t know where it’s coming from and how to correctly stop it.”

― Michael McCaul

“Family is very important. Me and my brothers were very close when I was growing up. We did a lot of things together to survive. If you have family behind you, the sky’s the limit.”

― Michael Oher

“If you don’t believe there’s some organising principle, or somebody up in the sky pulling the strings, then it can be very stressful. And nature itself is very arbitrary – it’s not malevolent or benevolent; it doesn’t even know we’re here.”

― Michael Shannon

“In the hierarchy of public lands, national parks by law have been above the rest: America’s most special places, where natural beauty and all its attendant pleasures – quiet waters, the scents of fir and balsam, the hoot of an owl, and the dark of a night sky unsullied by city lights – are sacrosanct.”

― Michael Shnayerson

“There are many theories about the best way to remove excess carbon from the atmosphere – some are ludicrous, others are at least worth study. The most commonly discussed plan is to lace the sky with reflective chemicals.”

― Michael Specter

“Hockey wasn’t invented but discovered. The game, and the large organizing idea behind Stephen Smith’s deeply personal ‘Puckstruck,’ sleeps in ponds and in the crooked limbs of trees overhead; we merely pluck a stick from the sky and skate over the frozen world to find ourselves and each other.”

― Michael Winter

“I was working at the ‘New York Times,’ ruing every second of my life, thinking how was I ever going to get out of here, and thinking that one could only do it the way newspaper people have always done it. I needed a scoop, and I would go out and I would dream upon coming upon fires or the sky falling in front of me or anything.”

― Michael Wolf

“One in 200 stars has habitable Earth-like planets surrounding it – in the galaxy, half a billion stars have Earth-like planets going around them – that’s huge, half a billion. So when we look at the night sky, it makes sense that someone is looking back at us.”

― Michio Kaku

“A song kind of comes out of anywhere. A song will come out of the sky, or an idea, or walking around, or playing with other guys.”

― Mike McCready

“Not all ideas are like a twinkling star in the sky, and you get inspired to make a record the next day.”

― Mike Patton

“Any candidate who thinks that we only need to attack ISIS from the sky, without regard to where they flourish and why, shares President Obama’s view that Iran is our partner in peace.”

“I feel very strong about ‘Brother.’ This is me. I’ve been writing with a much more free sky, open and free.”

― Morten Harket

“We often forget that everything we see, animate or inanimate, is a visual manifestation of the work of our invisible God. We have become so accustomed to trees, mountains, sky, air, water, flowers, animals, vegetables and people that we no longer see them for what they are – God’s work.”

― Mother Angelica

“I have seen the movement of the sinews of the sky, And the blood coursing in the veins of the moon.”

― Muhammad Iqbal

“But when researchers at Bell Labs discovered that static tends to come from particular places in the sky, the whole field of radio astronomy opened up.”

― Murray Gell-Mann

“ISIS did not come down from the sky. They found the opportunity to grow, and the world allowed them to grow.”

― Nadia Murad

“I am inspired by anything beautiful. Sometime it’s a pair of eyes or flowing gorgeous hair, other times it’s the sky or a sunset. I’ve been inspired by supple skin or the texture of a soft shirt.”

― Nadine Velazquez

“I live in a ‘sky island,’ a unique mountain valley environment where half the animal species of North America can be found.”

― Nancy Farmer

“If you consistently write ‘The sun set’ rather than ‘The sun sank slowly in the bright western sky,’ your story will move three times as fast. Of course, there are times you want the longer version for atmosphere – but not many. Wordiness not only kills pace; it bores readers.”

― Nancy Kress

“You cannot exploit the advantages of getting above the atmosphere unless you are able to get up there reasonably large-sized telescopes and unless you are able to keep these telescopes pointing at one region of the sky for long periods of time to a high degree of accuracy.”

― Nancy Roman

“The next time you experience a blackout, take some solace by looking at the sky. You will not recognize it.”

― Nassim Nicholas Taleb

“Whenever I start a ‘Potter’ film, I get these dreams. The last dream I had, I was in a war and the sky was blotted with broomsticks and I couldn’t find my wand. It was so intense. I always have mental, intense, war wizard dreams when I’m doing the films.”

― Natalia Tena

“At night, when the sky is full of stars and the sea is still you get the wonderful sensation that you are floating in space.”

― Natalie Wood

“Philosophically, the universe has really never made things in ones. The Earth is special and everything else is different? No, we’ve got seven other planets. The sun? No, the sun is one of those dots in the night sky. The Milky Way? No, it’s one of a hundred billion galaxies. And the universe – maybe it’s countless other universes.”

― Neil deGrasse Tyson

“I was transformed by picking up a pair of binoculars and looking up, and that’s hard to do for a city kid because when you look up you just see buildings – and really, your first thought is to look in people’s windows. So to look out of the space – out of living space – and look up to the sky, binoculars go far, literally and figuratively.”

― Neil deGrasse Tyson

“There’s something about witnessing something in the sky that makes people think they’re seeing something unique or special. I don’t really understand the psychology of it, to be honest.”

― Neil deGrasse Tyson

“I’m baffled all the time. We don’t know what’s driving 96% of the universe. Everybody you know and love and heard of and think about and see in the night sky through a telescope: four percent of the universe.”

― Neil deGrasse Tyson

“You can take for granted that people know more or less what a street, a shop, a beach, a sky, an oak tree look like. Tell them what makes this one different.”

― Neil Gaiman

“I needed real help in New York and I had no friends. I looked up at those buildings, I couldn’t see the sky or nothing, and I said, ‘Well, there ain’t no mountain high enough,’ and I just started – the words just fell out of my mouth, really.”

― Nickolas Ashford

“Once while vacationing at my grandparent’s house in Rajasthan, we were sleeping on the roof and I spotted an object hovering around in the sky – kind of a UFO. It totally spooked me out. I couldn’t sleep for days after that.”

“A great stench will come from Lausanne, but they will not know its origin; they will put out all people from distant places, fire seen in the sky, a foreign nation defeated.”

― Nostradamus

“Very near Auch, Lectoure, and Mirande, great fire will fall from the sky for three nights. A most stupendous and astonishing event will occur. Very soon afterwards, the earth will tremble.”

― Nostradamus

“At forty-five degrees, the sky will burn. Fire to approach the great new city; in an instant, a great scattered flame will leap up, when one will want to get evidence from the Normans.”

― Nostradamus

“I love to work out under a clear sky with lots of fresh air purifying my lungs.”

― Nushrat Bharucha

“The fixed stars signify the angel in man. That is why man orients himself by them; and that is why women have no appreciation for the starry sky; because they have no sense of the angel in man.”

“The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.”

― Pablo Picasso

“The sky broke like an egg into full sunset and the water caught fire.”

― Pamela Hansford Johnson

“For me, talking about the casting couch in the Malayalam film industry was like calling the sky blue. There is nothing new about calling a spade a spade. My intention was not to create an effect; I just wanted to pluck a few weeds in the system and throw them out.”

― Parvathy

“The sad fact is that it would be fair to say that United is a generic, bureaucratic, tired company. A sort of DMV in the sky. No real culture. No real strategy. No real expectations for employees or customers. All of which is a shame.”

― Patrick Lencioni

“The impact of our warming planet will likely lead to even stricter zoning and building codes to account for the rising sea levels visible in places like South Beach – even on days without a cloud in sky.”

― Patrick Murphy

“I love life. There’s so much to learn and see all the time, and nothing nicer for me than to wake up, and the sky is blue.”

― Pattie Boyd

“A lot of things drew me to Texas. One is the wilderness: It’s pretty close to wide open spaces, which I didn’t grow up around and I love. You don’t have to have a lot of money to have a view: The view is the sky, and it’s everywhere.”

“Every star, whether it’s Harrison Ford or Robert De Niro, is remembered by one film. Persis is a star in the sky – how can a star be forgotten when all you have to do is look up and see her?”

― Persis Khambatta

“I remember as a kid having a balloon and accidentally letting the string go and watching it just float off and into the sky until it disappeared. And there’s something about that, even, that feels very much like what life is, you know, that it’s fleeting, and it’s temporal.”

“I am very different as a parent to new kids. My work changed from being rooted in the sky to being rooted in the earth.”

― Peter Eisenman

“Nobody knows anything. I deal with people in all walks of life, some of whom should have some idea of what they’re doing. And they’re all clueless. It’s astonishing that any bridges stay up, or that planes don’t constantly plummet from the sky. It’s heartening, in a strange way.”

― Ram Shriram

“Technology is incredibly powerful. And in many ways, the sky is the limit in terms of what you can actually accomplish with the right science and the right technology.

― Ramez Naam

“The memory of that scene for me is like a frame of film forever frozen at that moment: the red carpet, the green lawn, the white house, the leaden sky. The new president and his first lady.”

― Richard M. Nixon

“When you get up into the crown of a redwood tree, you lose sight of the ground entirely. You also lose sight of the sky. And you’re in a lost world.

― Robert Indiana

“Prophets of doom have always taken risks in terms of ridicule and humiliation. If you stand on a street corner holding up a sign that reads ‘The End Is Near,’ passersby will laugh and heckle. People will say you’re like Chicken Little, running around telling people the sky is falling.”

I’m Sky Masterson!’”

― Seth Shostak

Surveys show that roughly one-third of the populace believes that at least some of this sky show is due to extraterrestrial spacecraft, here to probe our airspace and, when that proves boring, our bodies.”

― Seth Shostak

“Thanks to the fact that the Earth isn’t a perfect sphere, and invoking a bunch of Newtonian physics, you can deduce that our planet wobbles, too, taking roughly 26,000 years to trace out a small circle on the sky, a phenomenon known as precession.”

― Seth Shostak

“You can fix your body, your heart, your diabetes. In Korea, China, and India, there are people who do yoga. They go to the mountains and do breath-in, breath-out meditation. They can live 500 years and not get sick. Keeping their bodies for a long time is possible; even flying in the sky is possible.”

That, to us, is the hyperloop, and we’re the only company building that.”

― Shervin Pishevar

― Shervin Pishevar

“Bostonians vs. Chicagoans, they have different sensibilities, and I can only say this because I consider myself a Bostonian. You know, the Puritanical roots in Boston – the ‘sky is falling’ mentality a little bit. We could be on a great run, and we’d lose one game, and everyone’s panicking.”

― Theo Epstein

“Fear keeps us focused on the past or worried about the future. If we can acknowledge our fear, we can realize that right now we are okay.
