"The Earth reminded us of a Christmas tree ornament hanging in the blackness of space. As we got farther & farther away, it diminished in size. Finally it shrank to the size of a marble, the most beautiful marble you can imagine. That beautiful, warm, living object looked so fragile, so delicate, that if you touched it with a finger it would crumble & fall apart. Seeing this has to change a man, has to make a man appreciate the creation of God and the love of God."
