"Between Worlds of Difference" 
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
“Oh soul, you worry too much. You have seen your own strength. You have seen your own beauty. You have seen your golden wings. Of anything less, why do you worry? You are in truth the soul, of the soul, of the soul.”
~ Maulana Jalaluddin Mohammad Balkhi Rumi
1207-1273 ل‌الدین محمد بلخی
(Born: Balkh of Afghanistan/Tajikistan)

"No amount of stardom will ever consume my soul. Money comes, money goes. Fame comes, fame goes. I believe every human being is a celebrity in their own right. / Success comes to those who dedicate everything to their passion in life. To be successful, it is also very important to be humble and never let fame or money travel to your head."
~ A. R. Rahman, 1967-
(Born: Chennai, India)

"Rocky Mountains, High Spring"
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
”When I first looked back at the Earth, standing on the Moon, I cried.”
~ Alan Shepard, 1923-1998
(Born: Derry, New Hampshire, USA)
(Quote describes his time on the lunar surface during the Apollo 14 mission in February 1971)

“When you discover new things every minute and your mind is absorbing so many experiences, it feels like time expands.”
~ Samantha Cristoforetti, 1977-
(Born: Milan, Italy)
(Samantha Cristoforetti is a European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut of Italian nationality. Between November 2014 and June 2015 she spent 199 days on board the International Space Station as a Flight Engineer for Expedition 42 and 43. During ASI's Futura Mission, Samantha conducted experiments in the Station's laboratories. Samantha is a Captain in the Italian Air Force.)
BBC Radio Interview 29 Jun 2015 (11 minutes)
www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02vvz0r?ocid=socialflow_twitter

"Never in all their history have men been able truly to conceive of the world as one: a single sphere, a globe, having the qualities of a globe, a round earth in which all the directions eventually meet, in which there is no center because every point, or none, is center — an equal earth which all men occupy as equals. The airman's earth, if free men make it, will be truly round: a globe in practice, not in theory."
~ Archibald MacLeish, 1892-1982
(Born: Glencoe, Illinois, USA)

"We have reached a new milestone as a human family. With seven billion of us now inhabiting our planet, it is time to ask some fundamental questions. How can we provide a dignified life for ourselves and future generations while preserving and protecting the global commons - the atmosphere, the oceans and the ecosystems that support us?"
~ Ban Ki-moon, 1944-
(Born: Haengchi, South Korea)
(Ban Ki-moon is the eighth and current Secretary-General of the United Nations)

“From out there on the Moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you %$@!#@!(jerk)’”
~ Edgar Mitchel, 1930-
(Born: Hereford, Texas, USA)
(Quote is from the Apollo 14 astronaut, in a People magazine interview on 8 April 1974)

"Breath of the Universe Touches Skin of the Earth"
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
“The universe is a pretty big place. If it's just us, seems like an awful waste of space.”
~ Carl Sagan, 1934-1996
(Born: Brooklyn, New York City)

"The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us, the less taste we shall have for destruction."
~ Rachel Carson, 1907-1964
(Born: Springdale, Pennsylvania, USA)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rachel_Carson

“When you reach for the stars, you are reaching for the farthest thing out there. When you reach deep into yourself, it is the same thing, but in the opposite direction. If you reach in both directions, you will have spanned the universe.”
~ Vera Nazarian, 1966-
(Born: Moscow, Russia)

“My lover asks me:
“What is the difference between me and the sky?”
The difference, my love,
Is that when you laugh,
I forget about the sky”
~ Nizar Qabbani, 1923-1998
(Born: Damascus, Syria)

"You know, describe what happens in a pipe ceremony to somebody and they’ll say, “Oh, okay so you sit around and some old man smokes a pipe, I don’t get it. Why is that exciting?” But if you could communicate to them the feeling that we have when we hear the drum or when the medicines are lit or when the pipe goes around, then you’re kind of imbued with that blast of spirit that’s almost entirely impossible to communicate with somebody. So I brought in this magic to convey the feeling of the power of prayer, the power of belief, and the power of ceremony. I really thought it came together well where people can see it and it gave the story that supernatural effect that we feel when we’re in those ceremonies."
~ Frank C. Busch
(Born: Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation, Manitoba, Canada)
