For the Scientist who has lived by the faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance, he is about to conquer the highest peak, as he is about to pull himself above the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.
Robert Jastrow, 'God and the Astronomers.'
April 6, 1937 Herbert Clinton Carroll (my grandfather) wrote,
Sometimes when I am alone under the stars, I look out into space and wonder if our works look as small to God as his looks great to us.
Great are the works of the Lord, studied by all who delight in them.
