Cosmos Quotes - Neil deGrasse Tyson

"To make this journey, we'll need imagination, but imagination alone is not enough, because the reality of nature is far more wondrous than anything we can image."

"Science works on the frontier of knowledge and ignorance. We're not afraid to admit what we don't know. There's no shame in that. The only shame is to pretend that we have all the answers."

"It's ok not to know all the answers. It's better to admit our ignorance than to believe answers that might be wrong. Pretending to know everything closes the door to finding out what's really there."
