Small And Blue And Beautiful

To see the earth as it truly is, small and blue and beautiful in that eternal silence where it floats, is to see ourselves as riders on the earth together, brothers on that bright loveliness in the eternal cold -- brothers who know now they are truly brothers.

-- Archibald MacLeish (1892 - 1982), American poet, writer, and Librarian of Congress, as quoted in Richard Nixon's First Inaugural Address (20 January 1969)
