Universe Stamp by Kezzi-Rose Universe Stamp by Kezzi-Rose

Be humble for you are made of earth; be noble for you are made of stars.

— Serbian proverb

Have you ever looked up at a clear night sky and felt the incredible significance of the sight before you? Stretching on to infinity is vast space, filled with other planets, asteroids, burning suns, spinning galaxies, supernovas, neutron stars, black holes.. and so much more that we may never see, even with the most powerful of telescopes. It is enormous, it is dynamic, and it is beautiful.
And there you are, this tiny speck on the surface of just one little planet, in just one solar system on the arm of just one galaxy, gazing up at it all, trying to comprehend it. You feel on the brink of epiphany, yet somehow the reality of it all is just too big to quite fit inside your head.
Every atom in your body has come from out there, somewhere. Everything you are made from once came exploding out of a supernova, maybe several supernovae, millions and billions of light-years from where you're standing right now. You are stardust: and billions of years of tinkering evolution by natural selection has shaped that into who you are. Despite the total feeling of insignificance that comprehending the universe gives you, it also makes you one of the most special and important things ever to exist.
Our story is the story of the universe. Every piece of everyone, of everything you love and everything you hate, of the thing you hold most precious, was assembled by the forces of nature, transformed in the hearts of the stars or created in their fiery deaths. And when you die, those pieces will be returned to the universe in the endless cycle of death and rebirth.
What a wonderful thing it is to be a part of that universe. What a story, what a majestic story.
— Professor Brian Cox
When you are having a bad day, think about just how incredible it is that you are alive. No matter your struggle, big or small, it helps you appreciate yourself just that much more. ♥

I seriousaly love your stamps!
I love going outside at night and looking at a clear starry sky! Back in the summer, the power went out one time where I live, and my friend and I basically just sat outside looking for shooting stars and tried to find constellations for 3 hours xD (at 2 am). It's rare to see such an amazing sight for me, I live in the city and you can barely see the stars due to the lights :/ I would love to get a telescope and be able to look at the planets and what not, that would honestly be so amazing!!

Thanks so much! And I am the same, I could gaze at the night sky for hours on end ♥ Even better when it's with somebody else, and you can let your imaginations run wild with all the possibilities out there~
Imagine what we could see if there was no light pollution! It would be a dream to go to Hawaii where you can see the Milky Way so clearly.
I hope you do get a telescope someday, I want one too! :la:

I don't know why but I love how you structured your sentence. XD Again, I dunno why. 

How much did the telescope cost?

Hnnngggg...my grammer and ability to build a decently sructured sentence isn't too hot, so some stuff I type comes out funny. xD

I got mine for $150 at a pawn shop.
