"The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well,
on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away
and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be."

Bumper sticker I saw in Evansville, Indiana on the back of a minivan:

I want to die like grandpa, in his sleep.
Not like the terrified passengers in his car.

That's a kind of old one to me, although I heard it as "Not screaming like the other people in his car." I guess the best is to combine them, "Not screaming like the terrified passengers in his car."

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe,
attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion,
I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate.
All those moments will be lost in time,
like tears in rain.
Time to die.

Roy Batty

And when we shoot for the stars
What a giant step
Have we got what it takes
To carry the weight of this concept?
Or pass it by
Like a shot in the dark
Miss the mark with a sense of adventure

The cat is nature's masterpiece - Leonardo Da Vinci

Beautiful, I didn't find any "official source", anyway I think the correct quote was:

"Anche il più piccolo dei felini, il gatto, è un capolavoro. (Leonardo da Vinci)"

"Even the smallest of felines, the cat, is a masterpiece. (Leonardo da Vinci)"

Thanks for that. I can't remember where I first came across that quote. I have a copy of that first graphic, the sepia one.  I had not seen the other two.
