Just so I don't get too puffed up:

“You are 1 person out of 7 billion people

On 1 planet out of 8 planets

In 1 star system out of 100 billion star systems

In 1 galaxy out of 100 billion galaxies

And you are enormously insignificant.”

- unknown


  1. Insignificant ... and possibly lonely.

  2. Ain't that the truth! It's funny how most of us go through life completely occupied with ourselves, when in fact in the scheme of things we are such a small part.

  3. Insignificant to the universe, maybe. But I imagine that all living things have some purpose, and therefore are significant. Except for mosquitos.

  4. Very small fry when one thinks about it!

  5. This reminds me of the time my husband sat down our youngest (who is eight) and drew a circle representing the universe in order to explain to him that he is NOT the center of it! :D

  6. Maybe in the galaxy I'm teeny tiny, but i'm the queen in my house!lol

  7. This is a good reminder for those of us who tend to dwell on ourselves a bit more than we should.
