"We are all made of stardust" - Carl Sagan.
It is true! Massive stars burn through a process called nuclear fusion. They fuse hydrogen into helium, and some go on to carbon, then oxygen, then neon, magnesium, sulfur, silicon and so on, up to iron. When massive stars explode they release all these rich elements out into space. So without exploding stars, we would not exist! Even the very iron in your blood comes from stars which have exploded.
For me, though, this quote is about potential. You are special. You are the stuff of stars! What will you acheive when you set your mind to it?
