It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds.

Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination.

Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

“The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.”

I will touch a hundred flowers and not pick one.”

“When love is not madness, it is not love.”

“Teaching a child not to step on a caterpillar is as valuable to the child as it is to the caterpillar.”

Bradley Miller

The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference.
The opposite of beauty is not ugliness, it’s indifference.
The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference.
And the opposite of life is not death, but indifference between life and death.

Elie Wiesel

When you have to make a hard decision, flip a coin.
Because when that coin is in the air, you suddenly know what you’re hoping for.

I own nothing.

Not even myself. We are all borrowed sets of particles that have existed in the universe since always, to infinity.
