Distant light

Light reveals nothing about how far it has travelled. A ray of light arriving from a distant star makes no more fanfare on its arrival than does the glint reflected of the rim of a cup.
-- Simon Ings
The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent upon it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do.
-- Galileo Galilei
