One of the quotes that I liked and remembered said during Babylon 5, Season 2:  The Coming of Shadows was from Delenn talking to Sheridan during a very tense time when survival was questionable...

"Then I will tell you a great secret, Captain. Perhaps the greatest of all time. The molecules of your body are the same molecules that make up this station, and the nebula outside, that burn inside the stars themselves. We are starstuff. We are the universe made manifest, trying to figure itself out. And as we have both learned, sometimes the universe requires a change of perspective."

I always thought that was a very moving line and imaginative line written by J Michael Straczynski, and I was fascinated to learn it was abslutely factual

Every single part of our body, of our world, is a product of the stars!
