Gerard De Nerval On My Universe

Gerard De Nerval (May 22, 1808 – January 26, 1855) I did not ask of God that he should change anything in events themselves, but that he should change me in regard to things, so that I might have the power to create my own universe, to govern my dreams, instead of enduring them.

Rebeca West On The Universe

Rebecca West (December 21. 1892 – March 15, 1983) If during the next million generations there is but one human being born in every generation who will not cease to inquire into the nature of his fate, even while it strips and bludgeons him, some day we shall read the riddle of our universe.
