Walter Isaacson, writer

When you're in New York City or Los Angeles, even if you're not dealing with show business, there's still this sense that it's the center of the universe. And I think that's a really dangerous, limiting mindset.

I like being from a city that is not entrenched in show business. When you're in New York City or Los Angeles, even if you're not dealing with show business, there's still this sense that it's the center of the universe.

Ed Helms, comedian

Maybe the universe will get tired of me.

Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.

Frank Zappa, musician

Bertrand Russell, philosopher

Nothing in the universe can travel at the speed of light, they say, forgetful of the shadow's speed.

Howard Nemerov, poet

As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.

Wandering re-establishes the original harmony which once existed between man and the universe.

Anatole France, novelist

There are certain queer times and occasions in this strange mixed affair we call life when a man takes his whole universe for a vast practical joke.

Sol Wachtler, judge

A painting is a symbol for the universe. Inside it, each piece relates to the other. Each piece is only answerable to the rest of that little world. So, probably in the total universe, there is that kind of total harmony, but we get only little tastes of it.

Corita Kent, artist

Watergate had become the center of the media's universe, and during the remaining year of my presidency the media tried to force everything else to revolve around it.
