An author who changed my thinking about life and time ever since I first discovered his work in a used bookstore some years ago is the archaeologist-author Loren Eiseley. His first book, The Immense Journey, came out in 1957. Questions about evolution, ecology, & the human place in it all are woven throughout his writings. This page has a good list of quotes people have pulled from his books: https://www.goodreads.com/author/quotes/56782.Loren_Eiseley
