There is Nothing to Match it Anywhere

Perhaps as a follow-up to my post of a few days ago, these words of the great science writer, Lewis Thomas would be appropriate.

Of all celestial bodies within reach or view, as far as we can see, out to the edge, the most wonderful and marvelous and mysterious is turning out to be our own planet earth. There is nothing to match it anywhere, not yet anyway.
