Summit Outside 2013 | Event Recap
"Those who return from a journey are not the same as those who left."
More on the event here.
"When we originally went to the moon, our total focus was on the moon. We weren’t thinking about looking back at the Earth. But now that we’ve done it, that may well have been the most important reason we went."
"We want our guests to have the kind of relationship that exceeds the limitations of the event. There’s a lot more value in a deeper relationship that’s rooted in friendship than the standard trading of business cards that people consider to be networking." - Brett Leve, Co-Founder of Summit (via Wired UK)
"The Earth is the only world known, so far, to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment, the Earth is where we make our stand. It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world.To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.”
