I came across this cool quote from Samuel Clemens...
I love to revel in philosophical matters--especially astronomy.
I study astronomy more than any other foolishness there is. I am a perfect slave to it. I am at it all the time. I have got more smoked glass than clothes. I am as familiar with the stars as the comets are.
I know all the facts and figures and I have all the knowledge there is concerning them. I yelp astronomy like a sun-dog, and paw the constellations like Ursa Major." -
This is a cool one...
I think I'll start a separate section with astronomical quotes and references from the famous and not so famous.
