To Professor Carl E. Sagan whose brilliant mind touched and inspired millions and whose work brought a slice of the Cosmos within our reach. May his memory leave forever in humanity’s quest to understand the Universe.
Professor Sagan was laid to rest in the serenity of Lake View Cemetery. People still walk the ascending path that leads to his grave and leave all kinds of dedications. We found, among others, a button with one of his famous quotes: “The Cosmos is all that is or was or ever will be.” Here is the rest of the quote: ”Our feeblest contemplations of the Cosmos stir us — there is a tingling in the spine, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation, as if a distant memory, of falling from a height. We know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries.” – Carl E. Sagan (1934-1996)
