W. H. Auden

Ida B. Wells

Thousands of geniuses live and die undiscovered - either by themselves or by others.
The stars look the same from night to night. Nebulae and galaxies are dully immutable, maintaining the same overall appearance for thousands or millions of years. Indeed, only the sun, moon and planets - together with the occasional comet, asteroid or meteor - seem dynamic.
The principal reason for the universe's poker face is that its constituents are far away. Stars careen through space, and galaxies spin at speeds thousands of times faster than a jet plane.

Charles de Lint

Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
