quote Gutenberg

Who cares for what is far away?

Nobody can pretend to be profoundly immersed in the internal affairs of Sirius or of Alpha Centauri. A fiery revolution in the belt of Orion would affect us less than a passing finger-ache in a certain single terrestrial baby of our own household.
Falling in Love: With Other Essays on More Exact Branches of Science, Grant Allen (1889)
