There was no "before" the beginning of our universe, because once upon a time there was no time.
* John D. Barrow
I don't pretend to understand the Universe--it's a great deal bigger than I am.
* Thomas Carlyle
A universe that came from nothing in the big bang will disappear into nothing at the big crunch. Its glorious few zillion years of existence not even a memory.
* Paul Davies
Anyone informed that the universe is expanding and contracting in pulsations of eighty billion years has a right to ask, "What's in it for me?"
* Peter De Vries
Now my own suspicion is that the Universe is not only queerer than we suppose, but queerer than we can suppose.
* J. B. S. Haldane
Nothing puzzles me more than the time and space; and yet nothing troubles me less.
* Charles Lamb
