For most gulls, it is not flying that matters, but eating. For this gull, though, it was not eating that mattered, but flight. More than anything else, Jonathan Livingston Seagull loved to fly. — Richard Bach, Jonathan Livingston Seagull Man must rise above the Earth — to the top of the atmosphere and beyond — for only thus will he fully understand the world in which he lives. — Socrates O to speed where there is space enough and air enough at last! — Walt Whitman, One Hour to Madness and Joy, 1860 There is no sport equal to that which aviators enjoy while being carried through the air on great white wings. — Wilbur Wright, 1905
