#3. Are we lost, or are we found at last? On earth we strive for our various needs, because so goes the fundamental law of man. Aloft, at least for a little while, the needs disappear. Likewise the striving. In the thoughts of man aloft, food and evil become mixed and sometimes reversed. This is the open door to wisdom. Aloft, the earth is ancient and man is young, regardless of his numbers, for there, aloft he may reaffirm his suspicions that he may not be so very much. This is the gateway to humility. - Author: Ernest K. Gann
Silsby Aviation quotes by Ernest K. Gann

#11. "Just try and remember," I said slowly," that if God had intended men to fly He'd have given us wings. So all flying is flying in the face of nature.

Silsby Aviation quotes by Gavin Lyall

Silsby Aviation quotes by Bee Movie

The higher figures come from the working engineers, and the very low figures from management. - Author: Richard P. Feynman
Silsby Aviation quotes by Richard P. Feynman
#20. Shipping is the greenest method of transport. In terms of carbon emissions per ton per mile, it emits about a thousandth of aviation and about a tenth of trucking.

Silsby Aviation quotes by Rose George
#21. The British Islands are small islands and our people numerically a little people. Their only claim to world importance depends upon their courage and enterprise, and a people who will not stand up to the necessity of air service planned on a world scale, and taking over thousands of aeroplanes and thousands of men from the onset of peace, has no business to pretend anything more than a second rate position in the world. We cannot be both Imperial and mean. - Author: H.G.Wells
Silsby Aviation quotes by H.G.Wells

Silsby Aviation quotes by John Kenneth Galbraith
#26. In airplanes you have a choice between chocolate and vanilla. One year could be vanilla or it could be chocolate. I don't attach any relevance to which one. - Author: Gordon Bethune
Silsby Aviation quotes by Gordon Bethune
#27. The Turkish infantry were as fine as they had ever been, and their field artillery was presentable. But they had none of the modern weapons which from May, 1940, were proved to be decisive. Aviation was lamentably weak and primitive. They had no tanks or armoured cars, and neither the workshops to make and maintain them nor the trained men and staffs to handle them. They had hardly any anti-aircraft or anti-tank artillery. Their signal service was rudimentary. Radar was unknown to them. Nor did their warlike qualities include any aptitude for all these modern developments. - Author: Winston S. Churchill
Silsby Aviation quotes by Winston S. Churchill
#28. It is about a period in aviation which is now gone, but which was probably more interesting than any the future will bring. As time passes, the perfection of machinery tends to insulate man from contact with the elements in which he lives. The 'stratosphere' planes of the future will cross the ocean without any sense of the water below. Like a train tunneling through a mountain, they will be aloof from both the problems and the beauty of the earth's surface. - Author: Charles Lindbergh
Silsby Aviation quotes by Charles Lindbergh
#29. And this was the greatest gift that aviation could ever give me; not the sense of freedom but the sense of permanence, coupling, of being absolutely worthy, absolutely necessary to the one person in the world who hadn't needed anyone. Before. - Author: Melanie Benjamin
Silsby Aviation quotes by Melanie Benjamin

Silsby Aviation quotes by Igor Sikorsky
#32. This is earth again, the earth where I've lived and now will live once more ... I've been to eternity and back. I know how the dead would feel to live again. - Author: Charles Lindbergh
Silsby Aviation quotes by Charles Lindbergh
#33. I headed for this white mountain, but was caught in the wind and the mist ... I followed the cliff from north to south, but the wind, against which I was fighting, got even stronger. A break in the coast appeared to my right, just before Dover Castle. I was madly happy. I headed for it. I rushed for it. I was above ground! - Author: Louis Bleriot
Silsby Aviation quotes by Louis Bleriot
#34. The cost of solving the Comet mystery must be reckoned neither in money nor in manpower. - Author: Winston Churchill
