“I know I am a fool, hoping dirt and glory are both a kind of luminous paint; the humiliations and exaltations that lights us up. I see like a bug, everything too large, the pressure of infinity hammering at my head. But, how else to live, vertical that I am, pressed down and pressing up simultaneously? I cannot assume you will understand me. It is just as likely that as I invent what I want to say, you will invent what you want to hear. Some story we must have. Stray words on crumpled paper. A weak signal into the outer space of each other. The probability of separate worlds meeting is very small. The lure of it is immense. We send starships. We fall in love.”
