#3. Martin Scorcese is probably America's greatest living director, and while he is not a titan like John Ford or Alfred Hitchcock or Federico Fellini, he is certainly consistently more interesting than Steven Spielberg, Brian de Palma, Francis Ford Coppola or Woody Allen. Even a failure like Gangs of New York or a curiosity like The Aviator is more interesting and ambitious than Munich, The Black Dahlia or Scoop. - Author: Joe Queenan
Boelcke Aviator quotes by Joe Queenan
#4. From the days of biplanes and silk scarves, the aviator has been the archetype of masculine glamour. Aviators have personified national ideals, from French elan to Soviet party discipline. They've inspired lust and admiration. They've turned sunglasses and short, utilitarian leather jackets into fashion statements. - Author: Virginia Postrel
Boelcke Aviator quotes by Virginia Postrel

Boelcke Aviator quotes by Oswald Boelcke
#8. Excuse me, sir." One the young officers put his hand up to stop them. "Are you Furious Barkley?"

"Maybe. Maybe not. Is there a problem, officers?" Doug stepped in front of Furi.

"Damn straight there's a problem." Syn stepped inside the door, yanking his dark aviator glasses off his face. The scowl he wore told Furi this was not a pleasant coincidence. "Thanks guys, you can go."

Furi stood with his mouth hanging open while Syn dismissed the officers.

"Seriously, Starsky. You gonna track my boy down every time he leaves the house?" Doug said angrily, still blocking Furi.

"He's not your boy. And what I do regarding Furi is none of your goddamn business." Syn's clenched jaw made his words sound like an evil hiss. He shouldered past Doug and got directly in Furi's face. "When I've been calling him for over six hours and he hasn't picked up or returned any of my calls, I'll send a fuckin' SWAT team to find him if I want to."

Syn spun and pointed his finger in Doug's face, "That's my say, not yours." Syn's voice was rising with his growing temper, and all eyes were on them.

"Okay, let's get out of here." Furi pushed at both men, urging them out the door.

As soon as they were out in the brisk fall air, Syn rounded on Furi, pushing their chest together. "Where have you been, Furious? I've been going crazy trying to check on you, and you're sitting here casually eating pancakes," Syn growled.

Boelcke Aviator quotes by A.E. Via
#9. You might be surprised to learn that a yo-yo controlled by 1992 World Champion Dale Oliver was actually clocked at a blistering 14,300 revolutions per minute (rpm). Conversely, the Hornet plods along at a slower 2200 rpm. This is the same aircraft engine, however, that catapulted legendary aviator Roscoe Turner to victory in his Hornet-powered Wedell-Turner racer during the 1934 Thompson Trophy Race. During this race, Turner was able to sustain speeds in excess of 290 mph. - Author: Dave Prochnow
Boelcke Aviator quotes by Dave Prochnow
#10. And let's get one thing straight. There's a big difference between a pilot and an aviator. One is a technician; the other is an artist in love with flight. - Author: Elrey Borge Jeppesen
Boelcke Aviator quotes by Elrey Borge Jeppesen
#11. For the Staffel: attack on principle in groups of four or six. When the fight breaks up into a series of single combats, take care that several do not go for one opponent. - Author: Oswald Boelcke
Boelcke Aviator quotes by Oswald Boelcke
#12. The perfect place to begin is exactly where you are right now. - Author: Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Boelcke Aviator quotes by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
#13. Myron headed down the steps. Without warning a man wearing a blue blazer and aviator sunglasses stepped in front of him. He was a big guy - six-four, two-twenty - just about Myron's size. His neatly combed hair sat above a pleasant though unyielding face. He expanded his chest into a paddleball wall, blocking Myron's path. His voice said, "Can I help you, sir?" But his tone said, Take a hike, bub. Myron looked at him. "Anyone ever tell you you look like Jack Lord?" No reaction. "You know," Myron said. "Jack Lord? Hawaii Five-O?" "I'll have to ask you to leave, sir. - Author: Harlan Coben

Boelcke Aviator quotes by Marcel Proust
#17. Then there was Nico di Angelo. Dang, that kid gave Leo the freaky-deakies. He sat back in his leather aviator jacket, his black T-shirt and jeans, that wicked silver skull ring on his finger, and the Stygian sword at his side. His tufts of black hair struck up in curls like baby bat wings. His eyes were sad and kind of empty, as if he'd stared into the depths of Tartarus - which he had. - Author: Rick Riordan
Boelcke Aviator quotes by Rick Riordan
#18. Round, cat-eye frames, wayfarers, and aviators are my go-tos. - Author: Georgia May Jagger
Boelcke Aviator quotes by Georgia May Jagger

Boelcke Aviator quotes by John Glenn
#20. I think there is something exhilarating in flying amongst clouds, and always get a feeling of wanting to pit my aeroplane against them, charge at them, climb over them to show them you have them beat, circle round them, and generally play with them; but clouds can on occasion hold their own against the aviator, and many a pilot has found himself emerging from a cloud not on a level keel. - Author: Charles Rumney Samson
Boelcke Aviator quotes by Charles Rumney Samson
#21. It is hard enough for anyone to map out a course of action and stick to it, particularly in the face of the desires of one's friends; but it is doubly hard for an aviator to stay on the ground waiting for just the right moment to go into the air. - Author: Glenn Curtiss
Boelcke Aviator quotes by Glenn Curtiss
#22. The life of an aviator seemed to me ideal. It involved skill. It brought adventure. It made use of the latest developments of science. Mechanical engineers were fettered to factories and drafting boards while pilots have the freedom of wind with the expanse of sky. There were times in an aeroplane when it seemed I had escaped mortality to look down on earth like a God. - Author: Charles Lindbergh
Boelcke Aviator quotes by Charles Lindbergh
#23. To feminine eyes a man's prestige, or his fame, envelops him in a luminous haze which obscures his faults. The triumphs of an aviator, an actor, a football player, an orator are often responsible for the beginning of a love affair. - Author: Andre Maurois
Boelcke Aviator quotes by Andre Maurois
#24. I decided that if I could fly for ten years before I was killed in a crash, it would be a worthwhile trade for an ordinary life time. - Author: Charles Lindbergh
Boelcke Aviator quotes by Charles Lindbergh
#25. I don't think I possess any skill that anyone else doesn't have. I've just had perhaps more of an opportunity, more of an exposure, and been fortunate to survive a lot of situations that many other weren't so lucky to make it. It's not how close can you get to the ground, but how precise can you fly the airplane. If you feel so careless with you life that you want to be the world's lowest flying aviator you might do it for a while. But there are a great many former friends of mine who are no longer with us simply because they cut their margins to close. - Author: Bob Hoover
Boelcke Aviator quotes by Bob Hoover
#26. My father's an early aviator, and my first flight was with him at age two. Now, despite the fact that I got sick on the flight, I still enjoyed it, I believe. - Author: Buzz Aldrin
Boelcke Aviator quotes by Buzz Aldrin
#27. Use your fear ... it can take you to the place where you store your courage. - Author: Amelia Earhart
Boelcke Aviator quotes by Amelia Earhart
#28. RIDER FOR THE FUNERAL OF AMY SCHUMER: . . . The actual body of AMY SCHUMER should be propped up on a chair in the northwest corner of the room, wearing aviator sunglasses and her trusted snow hat that reads, 'No Coffee, No Workee," a motto in life that she will continue to stand by in the afterlife. - Author: Amy Schumer
Boelcke Aviator quotes by Amy Schumer
#29. All right,' Nico relented. 'Maybe a little …' He managed to take off his aviator jacket and wad it into a pillow before he keeled over and began to snore. - Author: Rick Riordan
Boelcke Aviator quotes by Rick Riordan
#30. Instead of an intellectual search, there was suddenly a very deep gut feeling that something was different. It occurred when looking at Earth and seeing this blue-and-white planet floating there, and knowing it was orbiting the Sun, seeing that Sun, seeing it set in the background of the very deep black and velvety cosmos, seeing - rather, knowing for sure - that there was a purposefullness of flow, of energy, of time, of space in the cosmos - that it was beyond man's rational ability to understand, that suddenly there was a nonrational way of understanding that had been beyond my previous experience.
There seems to be more to the universe than random, chaotic, purposeless movement of a collection of molecular particles.
On the return trip home, gazing through 240,000 miles of space toward the stars and the planet from which I had come, I suddenly experienced the universe as intelligent, loving, harmonious. - Author: Edgar D. Mitchell
Boelcke Aviator quotes by Edgar D. Mitchell
#31. Try to secure advantages before attacking. If possible, keep the sun behind you. - Author: Oswald Boelcke
Boelcke Aviator quotes by Oswald Boelcke
#32. The Hercules' was a monumental undertaking. It is the largest aircraft ever built ... I put the sweat of my life into this thing. - Author: Howard Hughes
Boelcke Aviator quotes by Howard Hughes
#33. . . . though if Fanshawe had not spoken in so unbecoming a way, Laurence would have liked to keep Carver out of it, as he knew the boy had a poor head for heights, which struck him as a grave impediment for an aviator. - Author: Naomi Novik
Boelcke Aviator quotes by Naomi Novik
#34. Cinema is a visual language, and you're always looking for visual metaphors for things. You know, if I was writing a play about Howard Hughes, I could have him give a monologue about how he's terrified to touch a doorknob. But on screen, you know, working with Marty Scorsese in 'The Aviator,' that became the series of images that told a story. - Author: John Logan
Boelcke Aviator quotes by John Logan
