You know, being a test pilot isn't always the healthiest business in the world

Never in all their history have men been able truly to conceive of the world as one: a single sphere, a globe, having the qualities of a globe, a round earth in which all the directions eventually meet, in which there is no center because every point, or none, is center — an equal earth which all men occupy as equals. The airman's earth, if free men make it, will be truly round: a globe in practice, not in theory.

You know, being a test pilot isn't always the healthiest business in the world.

It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth. I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth. I didn't feel like a giant. I felt very, very small.

I don't know what you could say about a day in which you have seen four beautiful sunsets.

What was most significant about the lunar voyage was not that man set foot on the Moon but that they set eye on the earth.
