The seven of us on board [the Space Shuttle] represented five different religions.
But we were all agreed - it just doesn't make sense how people on earth treat each other.
It doesn't make any difference what language we speak.  It doesn't make any difference what country we come from.
It certainly doesn't make any difference what the color of our skin is.  We are all children of God traveling on spaceship earth together. 
Jake Garn

Perhaps the most poignant image of our time is that of Earth as seen by the space voyagers: a blue sphere, shimmering with life and light, alone and unique in the cosmos. From this perspective, the maps of geopolitics vanish, and the underlying interconnectedness of all the components of this extraordinary living system - animal, plant, water, land, and atmosphere - becomes strikingly evident. 
Richard Benedick

Hindu quote

We can judge others or we can love others - but we can't do both at the same time.
Author Unknown

Man is a part of the world, and his spirit is part of the spirit of the world.  We are merely a peculiar mode of Being, a living atom within it, or, rather, a cell that, if sufficiently open to itself and its own mystery, can also experience the mystery, the will, the pain, and the hope of the world.
Vàclav Havel
