“My view of our planet was a glimpse of divinity.” 
- Edgar Mitchell, USA

“The first day or so we all pointed to our countries. The third or fourth day we were pointing to our continents. By the fifth day, we were aware of only one Earth.” – Sultan bin Salman bin Abdul-Aziz Al Saud

“For those who have seen the Earth from space, and for the hundreds and perhaps thousands 
more who will, the experience most certainly changes your perspective. The things that we 
share in our world are far more valuable than those which divide us.” – Donald Williams, USA

“We were flying over America and suddenly I saw snow, the first snow we ever saw from orbit. I have never visited America, but I imagined that the arrival of autumn and winter is the same there as in other places, and the process of getting ready for them is the same. And then it struck me that we are all children of our Earth.”
— Aleksandr Aleksandrov, Soviet cosmonaut

“Mystery creates wonder and wonder is the basis of man’s desire to understand.” – Neil Armstrong
