“After sleeping through a hundred million centuries we have finally opened our eyes on a sumptuous planet, sparkling with color and bountiful with life.
Within decades we must close our eyes again.
Isn’t it a noble, an enlightened way of spending our brief time in the sun, to work at understanding the universe and how we have come to wake up in it?
This is how I answer when I am asked – as I am surprisingly often – why bother to get up in the morning.
To put it another way round, isn’t it sad to go to your grave without ever wondering why you were born?
Who, with such a thought, would not spring from bed, eager to resume discovering the world and rejoicing to be part of it?”

– Richard Dawkins,
“Unweaving the Rainbow”
