#2. That's how I approach just about everything. I spend my life getting ready to play "Rocket Man." I picture the most demanding challenge; I visualize what I would need to know how to do to meet it; then I practice until I reach a level of competence where I'm comfortable that I'll be able to perform. It's what I've always done, ever since I decided I wanted to be an astronaut in 1969, and that conscious, methodical approach to preparation is the main reason I got to Houston. I never stopped getting ready. Just in case. - Author: Chris Hadfield
Rocket Man quotes by Chris Hadfield
#3. I got really bored, so I decided to pick a theme song! Something appropriate. And naturally, it should be something from Lewis's godawful seventies collection. It wouldn't be right any other way.

But I settled on "Stayin' Alive" by the Bee Gees. - Author: Andy Weir
Rocket Man quotes by Andy Weir
#4. It is our belief that the Russians are the worst propagandists, the worst public relations people, in the world. Let us take the example of the foreign correspondents. Usually a newspaperman goes to Moscow full of good will and a desire to understand what he sees. He promptly finds himself inhibited and not able to do the work of a newspaperman. Gradually he begins to turn in mood, and gradually he begins to hate the system, not as a system, but simply because it keeps him from doing his work. There is no quicker way of turning a man against anything. And this newspaperman usually ends up nervous and mean, because he has not been able to accomplish what he was sent to do. A man who is unable to function in his job usually detests the cause of his failure to function. The Embassy people and the correspondents feel alone, feel cut off; they are island people in the midst of Russia, and it is no wonder that they become lonely and bitter. - Author: John Steinbeck
Rocket Man quotes by John Steinbeck
#5. Happy is the man with a wife to tell him what to do and a secretary to do it. - Author: Benjamin Mancroft, 3rd Baron Mancroft

Rocket Man quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#7. You know what's wrong with our waterfront? It's the love of a lousy buck. It's making the love of a buck, the cushy job, more important than the love of man. It's forgetting that every fellow down here's your brother in Christ. - Author: Budd Schulberg
Rocket Man quotes by Budd Schulberg
#8. If history repeats itself, and the unexpected always happens, how incapable must Man be of learning from experience. - Author: George Bernard Shaw
Rocket Man quotes by George Bernard Shaw

#13. The deep vexation of is inward soul
Hath served a dumb arrest upon his tongue;
Who, mad that sorrow should his use control,
Or keep him from heart-easing words so long,
Begins to talk; but through his lips do throng
Weak words, so thick come in his poor heart's aid,
That no man could distinguish what he said. - Author: William Shakespeare
Rocket Man quotes by William Shakespeare
#14. The last word in ignorance is the man who says of an animal or plant, "What good is it?" If the land mechanism as a whole is good, then every part is good, whether we understand it or not. If the biota, in the course of aeons, has built something we like but do not understand, then who but a fool would discard seemingly useless parts? To keep every cog and wheel is the first precaution of intelligent tinkering. - Author: Aldo Leopold
Rocket Man quotes by Aldo Leopold
#15. There is, after all, always something wonderful and touchingly beautiful about a young man, for the first time released from the bonds of schooling, making his first ventures toward the infinite horizon of the mind. At this point he has not yet seen any of his illusions dissipated, or doubted either his own capacity for endless dedication or the boundlessness of the world of thought. - Author: Hermann Hesse
Rocket Man quotes by Hermann Hesse

Lurching, bloodied from the sword strike to his side, the last king of the Malkieri stumbled to his feet. Lan thrust his hand into the air, holding by its hair the head of Demandred, general of the Shadow's armies.

If at all
He could live free here? - Author: Robert Herrick
Rocket Man quotes by Robert Herrick

#35. You have a good thing going with Callie," I said in a soft voice. "She really does love you, Donovan. You should try to make it work with her, but if you can't love her wholeheartedly like she loves you, like she deserves to be loved, like everyone deserves to be loved, then you need to let her go.

If you fail to heed, then you must taste a bitter brew and never again walk the sands of dark Sigil. - Author: Jack Vance
Rocket Man quotes by Jack Vance
