Aviator Quotes (2 quotes)
In ancient days two aviators procured to themselves wings. Daedalus flew safely through the middle air and was duly honored on his landing. Icarus soared upwards to the sun till the wax melted which bound his wings and his flight ended in fiasco. In weighing their achievements, there is something to be said for Icarus. The classical authorities tell us that he was only doing a stunt, but I prefer to think of him as the man who brought to light a serious constructional defect in the flying machines of his day.
Perhaps the greatest joy of flying is the magnificence of the view. Colors stand out and the shades of the earth, unseen from below, form an endless magic carpet. If anyone really wishes to see the seasons changes, he should fly. Autumn turns its most flaming leaves upward and spring hints its coming first for birds and aviators.
