Albert Einstein’s ex libris was created from a doodle he drew up (probably in the margins of a paper describing the photoelectric effect, or something) and depicts a solitary stargazer, perched atop a mountain with arms spread wide, soaking in the celestial dreamscape that is the Universe. It is, in a word, awesome. Typical Einstein.

Physicist and all around amazing human being Richard Feynman is one of my personal heroes. While it may be the result of a lack of YouTube videos of earlier scientists, I know of no other human being that managed to employ such an unpretentious balance between lucid, brutal intellectual honesty and modest, childlike curiosity. That a man who helped build the atom bomb can say with the utmost sincerity that he doesn’t “feel frightened by not knowing things” about this life brings me unparalleled faith. After all, it’s “the way it really is, as far as I can tell, possibly”.

Everything alive will eventually die, we know that, but now we can read the pattern and see death coming.

It shows up with "extraordinary regularity," not just in plants, but in all animals, from slugs to giraffes. Death, it seems, is intimately related to size.
