  • Charles A. Lindbergh, The Spirit of St. Louis, 1953

    Sometimes, flying feels too godlike to be attained by man. Sometimes, the world from above seems too beautiful, too wonderful, too distant for human eyes to see

    Charles A. Lindbergh, The Spirit of St. Louis, 1953
  • Walt Whitman, One Hour to Madness and Joy, 1860

    O to speed where there is space enough and air enough at last!
