; she was beautiful, in the way
an  i n f e r n o  was beautiful;
and men said that the blood of
stars flowed in her  v e i n s .

there is only one  w o r t h y  goal for scientific exploration: piercing the tissue that separates  l i f e   fr o m   d e a t h. everything else from the deep bottom of the sea, to the top of the highest mountain, on the farthest planet, i s  i n s i g n i f i c a n t. life and death, sir malcolm. the flicker that separates one from the other. fast as a bat’s wing. more beautiful than any sonnet - that is my river. that is my mountain.

                there, i will plant my flag.
