Words of Wisdom: More Advice from Sagan

If you’ve never read or heard any of Carl Sagan’s works, you really need to open yourself up to the reality of reality.

You grow and learn, childish beliefs and wonders fall by the wayside in favor of more sophisticated and infinitely more wondrous experiences.
