Quote - Coasting

"If all you do is coast, eventually you slow down, while others catch up and pass you by."
- Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson,
congressional testimony, March 7, 2012.

I love to hear Dr. Tyson speak, his passion is palpable, his vision infectious. He speaks of greatness as something not just attainable, but something to unashamedly seek after. And his perspective on our place in the cosmos is ennobling: "the universe is in us."
