Carl Sagan : A Wordle Tribute

“The surface of the Earth is the shore of the cosmic ocean. On this shore, we’ve learned most of what we know. Recently, we’ve waded a little way out, maybe ankle-deep, and the water seems inviting. Some part of our being knows this is where we came from. We long to return, and we can, because the cosmos is also within us. We’re made of star stuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself.”

Carl Sagan, Cosmos, 1980

Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text.  Be Creative.

How I got this idea? Read blogs here and here. Thanks to both of you.

If you make one. Give me your shoot in the comments below.
