Title: After a Judgement Day
Author: Edmond Hamilton
Year: 1963

“Not to look at Earth, was the main thing. It was such a natural thing to do, to lean back in your chair and look up through the ceiling window and see the gray-and-bluish globe of Earth spinning away there against the blackness and the stars. But if you started looking, pretty soon you were remembering, and there was no use remembering now, no use at all.”
