„After my death, the molecules of my being will return to the earth and sky. They came from the stars. I am of the stars.“
— Charles Lindbergh American aviator, author, inventor, explorer, and social activist 1902 - 1974
Autobiography of Values (1978)
Kontext: I grow aware of various forms of man and of myself. I am form and I am formless, I am life and I am matter, mortal and immortal. I am one and many — myself and humanity in flux. I extend a multiple of ways in experience in space. I am myself now, lying on my back in the jungle grass, passing through the ether between satellites and stars. My aging body transmits an ageless life stream. Molecular and atomic replacement change life's composition. Molecules take part in structure and in training, countless trillions of them. After my death, the molecules of my being will return to the earth and sky. They came from the stars. I am of the stars.
