Post A Quote Challenge: Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of my Post A Quote Challenge! Once again, I am tagging any bloggers out there to take on this challenge.

Today, I am posting a quote about the imagination by the famous 20th century physicist Albert Einstein (1879-1955):

“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”

This image from the Herschel Space Observatory shows most the cloud associated with the Rosette nebula, a stellar nursery about 5,000 light-years from Earth in the Monoceros, or Unicorn, constellation. Herschel collects the infrared light given out by dust. The bright smudges are dusty cocoons containing massive embryonic stars, which will grow up to 10 times the mass of our sun. The small spots near the center of the image are lower mass stellar embryos. The Rosette nebula itself, and its massive cluster of stars, is located to the right of the picture.

Post A Quote Challenge: Day 1

My fellow WordPress blogger Dorkchops tagged me for the “Post A Quote” Challenge. Since I like reading a good quote every now and then, I decided to accept it. For the next three days, I will be posting a new quote on this blog. I am also supposed to tag three different bloggers each day to take on this challenge, but for the next three days I am just going to tag any bloggers out there who would like to participate.

Today’s quote is from a French poet named Jean de La Fontaine (1621-1695):

The Race

Far away
From the starting gate
Faces and places blur
As I speed by
At a frantic rate
No time to look back
I must always look ahead
All this rush
To reach the end
But when
The race
Is done
And my life’s course
Has run
Who will have won?
