Quote: Cecil Rhodes on the Planets

Cecil Rhodes (1853-1902)
"The world is nearly all parcelled out, and what there is left of it is being divided up, conquered, and colonised. To think of these stars that you see overhead at night, these vast worlds which we can never reach. I would annex the planets if I could; I often think of that. It makes me sad to see them so clear and yet so far."

From The Last Will and Testament of Cecil John Rhodes (with elucidatory notes to which are added some chapter describing the political and religious ideas of the testator), Edited by W.T. Stead.
