“If the world seems unfair or beyond our understanding, sublime places suggest that it is not surprising that things should be thus.” -Alain de Botton
“The Grand Canyon looks back at its observers in total awe.” –Jon Mueller
“Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?
Tell me, if you understand.
Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know!
Who stretched a measuring line across it?
On what were its footings set,
or who laid its cornerstone—
while the morning stars sang together
and all the angels shouted for joy?”
