I think the greatest poetry is revealing to the reader the beauty in something that was so simple that you have taken for granted. That, I think, is the job of the poet. And so, the simplicity of the universe, I think, if it doesn’t drive you to poetry, it drives you to bask in the majesty of the cosmos.
Neil DeGrasse Tyson, interviewed by Stephen Colbert

Neil DeGrasse Tyson calls out Bill O’Reilly,

and the God of the Gaps argument. 

"The day you stop looking because you’re content God did it, I don’t need you in the lab. You’re useless on the frontier of discovering the nature of the world."

‎The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation.

For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you.
