Those who see the cosmic perspective as a depressing outlook, they really need to reassess how they think about the world. Because when I look up in the universe, I know I'm small but I'm also big. I'm big because I'm connected to the universe, and the universe is connected to me.
Neil deGrasse Tyson

And they're in graduate school!
I hated school. Even to this day, when I see a school bus it's just depressing to me. The poor little kids.
