The soft bonds of love are indifferent to life and death. They hold through time so that yesterday’s love is part of today’s and the confidence in tomorrow’s love is also part of today’s. And when one dies, the memory lives in the other, and is warm and breathing. And when both die — I almost believe, rationalist though I am — that somewhere it remains, indestructible and eternal, enriching all of the universe by the mere fact that once it existed.
Isaac Asimov

We try to see in the dark; we toss up our questions and they catch in the trees.

…. we have a theology that is Earth-centered and involves a tiny piece of space, and when we step back, when we attain a broader cosmic perspective, some of it seems very small in scale. And in fact a general problem with much of Western theology in my view is that the God portrayed is too small. It is a god of a tiny world and not a god of a galaxy, much less of a universe.

A vital reminder from the fourth episode of Neil deGrasse Tyson's Cosmos series.
Perhaps Bertrand Russell put it best in his 10 commandments of learning, where he admonished:

Have no respect for the authority of others, for there are always contrary authorities to be found.

Pair with Carl Sagan’s toolkit for critical thinking.
