If eternity is silliness, then infinity of space is sheer madness.
Masks of the Universe Chapter 12 (p. 202)
It is difficult beyond description to conceive that space can have no end; but it is more difficult to conceive an end. It is difficult beyond the power of man to conceive an eternal duration of what we call time; but it is more impossible to conceive a time when there shall be no time.
The Age of Reason Part First Chapter X (p. 25)
I saw eternity the other night,
Like a great ring of pure and endless light,
And round beneath it, Time, in hours, days, years, Driven by the spheres,
Like a vast shadow moved; in which the World And all her train were hurl'd.
Poetry and Selected Prose A Vision
Eternity is written in the skies.
Night Thoughts 9
Eternity is written in the skies. Edward Young - (See p. Ill)
