“If you can see a thing whole, it seems that it’s always beautiful. Planet, lives…But close up, a world’s all dirt and rocks. And day to day, life’s a hard job, you get tired, you lose the pattern. You need distance, interval. The way to see how beautiful the earth is, is to see it as the moon. The way to see how beautiful life is, is from the vantage point of death.”

― Ursula K. Le Guin, The Dispossessed
