g Intelligence - Quote of the Day: “We may pronounce each orb sustains a race/Of living things, adapted to the place./Were all the stars, whose beauteous realms of light,/At distance only hung to shine by night,/And with their twinkling beams to please our sight?/How many roll in ether, which the eye/Could ne‘er, till aided by the glass, descry;/And which no commerce with the Earth maintain!/Are all those glorious empires made in vain?” - Sir Richard Blackmore, in “Creation” (1712)
