The Eyes and the Abyss of Galaxies… “voilà un beau precipice.”

“À mesure que l’on sait mieux voir, un spectacle quelconque enferme des joies inépuisables. Et puis, de partout, on peut voir le ciel étoilé; voilà un beau précipice.”

Alain (Émile-Auguste Chartier, 1858-1951)
Propos Sur Le Bonheur. Gallimard, 1928, p. 136.
