Victor Hugo Quote

One microscopic glittering point; then another; and another, and still another; they are scarcely perceptible, yet they are enormous. This light is a focus; this focus, a star; this star, a sun; this sun, a universe; this universe, nothing. Every number is zero in the presence of the infinite.


Translated by Isabel F. Hapgood, The Toilers of the Sea
