"'Just to make sure I understand," I said. 'If today is september third 1940, then tomorrow is... also September third?"'
“Stars, too were time travelers. How many of those ancient points of light were the last echoes of suns now dead? How many had been born but their light not yet come this far? If all the suns but ours collapsed tonight, how many lifetimes would it take us to realize that we were alone? I had always known the sky was full of mysteries – but not until now had I realized how full of them the earth was.”
