From here to eternity!

Fantesia... It’s the world of human fantasy. Every part, every creature of it, is a piece of the dreams and hopes of mankind. Therefore, it has no boundaries.

If    by    Rudyard Kipling 
If you can keep your head when all about you   
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,   
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;   
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;   
    If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;   
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;   
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,   
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,   
    Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,   
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,   
    And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

"Whatever the reason you’re on Mars, I’m glad you’re there, and I wish I was with you."

“And Lot’s wife, of course, was told not to look back where all those people and their homes had been. But she did look back, and I love her for that, because it was so human.”

—   Slaughterhouse-five Kurt Vonnegut

“And I asked myself about the present: how wide it was, how deep it was, how much was mine to keep.”

—   Slaughterhouse-five  Kurt Vonnegut

…My imagination will feed my hungry heart.

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”

Magic…

 Sometimes I dream the tree, and the tree is my life. One branch is the man I shall marry, and the leaves my children. Another branch is my future as a writer, and each leaf is a poem. Another branch is a good academic career. But as I sit there trying to choose, the leaves bring to turn brown and blow away, until the tree is absolutely bare.      

                                                                Sylvia Plath

Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.

“Let both sides seek to invoke the wonders of science instead of its terrors. Together let us explore the stars, conquer the deserts, eradicate disease, tap the ocean depths, and encourage the arts and commerce.”

—   John F. Kennedy

“Teacher: Do you have your work, George?
George: No.
Teacher: Why not?
George: I was depressed.
Teacher: Oh, yes? Why was that?
George: Because I realized I’m gonna die one day.
Teacher: We’re all gonna die one day, George. I don’t think that’s a reasonable excuse for not completing your trigonometry exercise.
George: Well, I was trying to. I just couldn’t shake this awareness of my mortality. Everything seems meaningless, including the assignment, unfortunately.”
