we are Quotidianauts
Two quotes from Chris Gordon, in his conversation with Jack Galmitz, entitled The Superlative Quotidian. Read it here, at antantantantant for each quotation's context, but I have snipped them out because I need to remember them.
"For me the quotidian has to be unusual, otherwise we've slipped into a kind of death. If we don't remake the world everyday, we've stopped paying attention and the animal within us has given up."
"We are all astronauts. We are all shipwrecked on unfamiliar terrain with broken tools and unreliable habitats. Habits from the old days that frighten us and propel us forward. Make us ashamed before our ancestors."
