They've survived flood, famine and plague. They've survived cosmic wars and holocausts. And now, here they are, out among the stars, waiting to begin a new life. Ready to outsit eternity.

Mankind doesn't need warfare and bloodshed to prove itself.
You need to get yourself a better dictionary. When you do, look up "genocide". You'll find a little picture of me there, and the caption'll read "Over my dead body".
'Cause you don't need to own the universe, just see it. Have the privilege of seeing the whole of time and space, that's ownership enough.
