Words Spoken from Edge of Space

These are some of the words spoken by Felix Baumgartner, who just completed a world record breaking skydive jump (Link1,) (Link2).  Total descent was 24 miles.  

"Sometimes we have to get really high to see how small we are," he said.

"When I was standing there on top of the world, you become so humble, you do not think about of breaking records anymore, you do not think of about gaining scientific date. The only thing you want is to come back alive," he said after the jump.

Although quite a different setting, his words made my mind remember back to something Moses humbly said after he "beheld the word upon which he was created; and Moses beheld the world and the ends thereof, and all the children of men which are, and which were created; of the same he greatly marveled and wondered."

"... Now, for this cause I know that man is nothing, which thing I never had supposed."
 -  Moses 1:8,10
