The stars are the great Gothic churches: spires, naves, delicate flying buttresses, massive conventional buttresses, stained glass and grandeur, grandeur, grandeur.

John Corry,

Like when you go to a magic show and you know how they do the illusions. That's how I am when I watch any movies where they have people flying through the air.

Renee O'Connor, actress

The flying? I'm not worried about it. I'm safe up there. I feel very comfortable with my abilities flying an airplane.

But hopes are Shy Birds flying at a great distance seldom reached by the best of Guns.

The American flag, Old Glory, standing tall and flying free over American soil for 228 years is the symbol of our beloved country. It is recognized from near and afar, and many lives have been lost defending it.

Jeff Miller, politician

A plane is a bad place for an all-out sleep, but a good place to begin rest and recovery from the trip to the faraway places you've been, a decompression chamber between Here and There. Though a plane is not the ideal place really to think, to reassess or reevaluate things, it is a great place to have the illusion of doing so, and often the illusion will suffice.

Shana Alexander, journalist

Of all the inventions that have helped to unify China perhaps the airplane is the most outstanding. Its ability to annihilate distance has been in direct proportion to its achievements in assisting to annihilate suspicion and misunderstanding among provincial officials far removed from one another or from the officials at the seat of government.

Madame Chiang KaiShek,

When you launch in a rocket, you're not really flying that rocket. You're just sort of hanging on.

Mark Kelly, musician

My greatest fear is flying. And I do a lot of flying, so that's a bummer.

W. Richard Stevens, scientist

I thought Erica Jong's Fear of Flying was one of the biggest pieces of crap that I've ever read in my life.

Helen Reddy, actress

I was a fighter pilot, flying Hurricanes all round the Mediterranean. I flew in the Western Desert of Libya, in Greece, in Syria, in Iraq and in Egypt.

Roald Dahl, novelist

I wish I could write well enough to write about aircraft. Faulkner did it very well in Pylon but you cannot do something someone else has done though you might have done it if they hadn't.

Ernest Hemingway, novelist

The life of an aviator seemed to me ideal. It involved skill. It brought adventure. It made use of the latest developments of science. Mechanical engineers were fettered to factories and drafting boards while pilots have the freedom of wind with the expanse of sky. There were times in an aeroplane when it seemed I had escaped mortality to look down on earth like a God.

Charles A. Lindbergh,

Success four flights Thursday morning all against twenty one mile wind started from Level with engine power alone speed through air thirty one miles longest 57 second inform Press home Christmas.

Wilbur Wright, inventor

Hugh Laurie, comedian

John G. Diefenbaker, statesman

I started in live television and I've done a lot of live TV and that's really the thing that I love best. I love flying by the seat of my pants.

Florence Henderson, actress

If anyone wonders why the airlines are not doing well it is because flying has been made such an unpleasant and degrading experience.

Keith Henson, scientist

Of course, the wind sort of swept up and the music was flying around in mid air and they were trying to play off it. You had to be there. It was quite funny.

Roy Wood, musician

We've got ballots flying around, being counted by hand, arriving by truck and in God knows whose custody.

David Axelrod, public servant

Having played many roles of scientific intellect I do have an empathy for that world. It's been hard on me because flying the Enterprise for seven years in Star Trek and sitting in Cerebro in X-men has led people to believe that I know what I'm talking about. But I'm still trying to work out how to operate the air conditioning unit on my car.

Patrick Stewart, actor

I think getting drunk is the key to flying comfortably. A couple of bloody marys or several glasses of champagne, and suddenly it's like you're on a roller coaster.

Amanda Peet, actress

Cutting the deficit by gutting our investments in innovation and education is like lightening an overloaded airplane by removing its engine. It may make you feel like you're flying high at first, but it won't take long before you feel the impact.

Barack Obama, president

When I was flying to Rome, we flew over London; I felt like bursting into tears. It's part of me, so I can't leave London behind for good.

Robert Pattinson, actor

Today's preoccupation with physical theories of everything takes a wrong turn from the purpose of science - to question all things relentlessly. Modern physics has become like Swift's kingdom of Laputa, flying absurdly on an island above the earth and indifferent to what is beneath.

Robert Lanza, scientist

But it wasn't until I graduated from Texas A & M University and joined the United States Air Force, flying C-130's all around the globe, that I truly appreciated the blessings of freedom.

No reporter is flying around in borrowed twin-engine airplanes.

Dee Dee Myers, public servant

I couldn't understand why my productivity went down when I had deliberately made more time available to write. Then I realized it was because I wasn't flying as much.

Simon Sinek, author

I get heartbroken flying into L.A. It's just this feeling of unspecific loss. Can you imagine what the San Fernando Valley was when it was all wheat fields? Can you imagine what John Steinbeck saw?

Edward Norton, actor

These guys are just flying through the air and I'm capturing them in the split second and putting it into a work of art, via clay to the bronze.

Richard MacDonald, sculptor

I went along doing the one-salad-a-night routine for a year. And I remember feeling so tired and depressed and irritable. I had no personal life. I was always flying someplace - weekends, holidays, vacations. Dinners at night were no fun because I couldn't eat.

Carol Alt, model

When you've been on a programme called 'An Idiot Abroad' job offers aren't exactly flying in.

Karl Pilkington, actor

I was interested in aerospace and flying, and the U.S. is really the best place in the world for flying.

Kalpana Chawla, astronaut

During the whole 'Jeopardy' experience, I felt like I was living a bit of a double life, I would be secretly flying out to L.A. to tape new shows, hoping that none of my coworkers would notice the absence and figure out what was going on. 'Jeopardy' tries very hard to keep their secrets.

Ken Jennings, celebrity

I took a Fear of Flying class, and I always missed the class, because I was always flying.

Sara Blakely, businesswoman

But as an entrepreneur you have to feel like you can jump out of an aeroplane because you're confident that you'll catch a bird flying by. It's an act of stupidity, and most entrepreneurs go splat because the bird doesn't come by, but a few times it does.

Reed Hastings, businessman

We don't do things we aren't good at by nature. I wouldn't play basketball because I'm only 5' 1". Find what you enjoy - whether it's racing, flying a helicopter, being a doctor, or stitching clothes together. Once you've done that, you have the passion you need.

Danica Patrick, celebrity

Swift speedy time, feathered with flying hours, Dissolves the beauty of the fairest brow.

Lord Chesterfield, statesman

I had that flying wheel tattooed on my forehead and on my butt.

Ted Lindsay, athlete
