Best Astronomy Quotes and Sayings
These earthly godfathers of Heaven’s lights, that give a name to every fixed star, have no more profit of their shining nights than those that walk and know not what they are.
– William Shakespeare

The thing I like about astronomy is being outside at night and seeing the stars in a dark sky. It makes you feel small.

– Henri Poincare
Astronomy has revealed the great truth that the whole universe is bound together by one all-pervading influence.

Astronomy is one of the sublimest fields of human investigation. The mind that grasps its facts and principles receives something of the enlargement and grandeur belonging to the science itself. It is a quickener of devotion.

– Richard P. Feynman
