Astounding Space Quotes and Sayings about the Universe

Space Quotes

A collection of space quotes and sayings from various sources.

Space is vast and endless, with billions of stars and galaxies. Our planet is one of these enormous stars and planets out there.

One day, though it is still very far away, people will travel to distant worlds. Now, it’s possible only in science fiction books and movies.

We have seen time and again that the imagination precedes every invention. Many things that were fiction in a book or movie have become a reality in our lives.

Space is vast and endless. We might think we are just a tiny speck in this vast Universe, but we are an inseparable part of it. We are here, on Earth, but with our mind, we can reach to the endless frontiers of space.

In our mind and imagination, we can reach everywhere.

Science is making leaps in the exploration of space. Man has sent people to the moon, rockets to distant planets in our Solar system, and telescopes that can photograph galaxies many light years from us.

We are fascinated by space and the idea of space travel. Space is a new frontier for humanity, full of adventures, risks, and the unknown.

NASA, a few private entrepreneurs in the U.S.A., and space agencies in other countries are working on means to understand the Universe, stars, planets, galaxies, and black holes. They are also working on finding means of space travel.

Meanwhile, until space travel becomes a reality for everyone, I hope you will enjoy reading a collection of space quotes.

Quotes about space from astronauts, the people who flew to outer space.

Outer Space and Inner Space

The outer space is vast, with no end, and science is learning about it and exploring it.

Outer space is not the only space there is. There is also a vast inner space existing within each one of us. However, only few people dare to travel into this space.

I am not speaking about the imagination, about the subconscious mind, or about thoughts and events that have been repressed into the subconscious mind. This is not the inner space I am referring to.

I am speaking about the inner space of awareness, consciousness, and what people call the soul. This inner space is accessed not by rockets and spaceships, but through meditation, mindfulness and contemplation.

It’s the inner journey inside, with no less adventures than journeys on Earth or to outer space.

The external world is part of this inner world. When thinking about space, always remember that there a vast space outside, and a vast space inside you.

Adventure takes place not just in the space of the external world, but also in the space of the inner world.
