Past seen more clearly than present, never stop striving toward future goals. Dreams are always worth pursuing.
The Pillars of Creation (birth place of stars), five light years tall, 6,500 light years away, took that long for the light that forms it to reach us. No way currently to see what it looks like NOW. Nike of Samothrace, 8 feet (244cm) tall, created c.190 bc, still around after 2,209 years a youngster in comparison, much changed since her creation. What she looked like THEN, impossible to say. After all time passed both still awesomely inspirational.
