Source: Hart, James V; Michael Goldenberg. Contact. Screenplay. Produced by South Side Amusement Company. 1997
Source Notes: This quote is often misattributed to Carl Sagan, whose book the screenplay was adapted from. However, I have not found any evidence that this quote appears anywhere in Sagan’s work, although it is very much in line with his voice and worldview.
