Amazing (to me) quote from the Talmud:
There are stars whose light only reaches the earth long after they have fallen apart.
There are people whose remembrance gives light in this world, long after they have passed away. This light shines in our darkest nights on the road we must follow.

Someone quoted this to me today. I did some Binging and it seems to really be from the Talmud.
It blows me away that someone could have written this 1500-1800 years ago. Think what you need to know to make that sentence make sense:
You have to know that stars are unimaginably far away. You have to know that stars are not eternal. You have to know that light has a finite speed. None of this was know by western science until less than a hundred years ago. It litterally makes my head spin that a Talmud writer could have had this idea 1500 years ago.
