“In sci-fi convention, life-forms that hadnt developed space travel were mere prehistoryhorse-shoe crabs of the cosmic sceneand something of the humiliation of being stuck on a provincial planet in a galactic backwater has stayed with me ever since.”

“The divinity in man is the true vestal fire of the temple which is never permitted to go out, but burns as steadily and with as pure a flame on the obscure provincial altar as in Numas temple at Rome.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“With respect to a true culture and manhood, we are essentially provincial still, not metropolitan,mere Jonathans. We are provincial, because we do not find at home our standards; because we do not worship truth, but the reflection of truth; because we are warped and narrowed by an exclusive devotion to trade and commerce and manufacturers and agriculture and the like, which are but means, and not the end.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
