Flying Airplane Quotes By Thich Nhat Hanh

It's like when you're flying in an airplane. Whenever severe turbulence comes along, the seatbelt keeps you from getting thrown around the cabin. Mindful breathing is your seatbelt in everyday life - it keeps you safe here in the present moment. If you know how to breathe, how to sit calmly and quietly, how to do walking meditation, then you have your seatbelt and you're always safe. — Thich Nhat Hanh

Lots of bumps and injuries along the way. — Harrison Ford

Flying Airplane Quotes By James Lipton

I jumped horses over big dangerous fences in competition. And got very, very good at it, at quite a high level. And I realized long since that, yeah, it's the same thing that appeals to me about it. You can't think about anything else, in either case; jumping horses in competition, show jumping, or flying an airplane, for whatever purpose. — James Lipton

Flying Airplane Quotes By Jake Busey

I had my airplane, and I'd use it as a car whenever I could. If the drive was going to be longer than an hour, I was flying the plane instead. And in California, it's really easy to have a drive longer than an hour. — Jake Busey

Flying Airplane Quotes By Greg MacGillivray

Flying through a hurricane is the most fearsome shaking you will ever get. Everything has to be tied down in the airplane. And the IMAX camera has to be rock-steady through all this. We had to design special mounts on the left and right sides of the cabin and in the cockpit to hold the cameras. — Greg MacGillivray

Flying Airplane Quotes By Tyler Perry

I was flying with my brother, and he challenged me to work out on the airplane. He thought it was funny - and I did it! — Izabel Goulart

Flying Airplane Quotes By Cornell Woolrich

Who else had ever met the business-end of a bolt of lightning in mid-flight, as he had just now, flying blind through a storm, lost a wing, managed to come down still alive even if it is on a wooded mountainside, to cut the contact at the moment of crashing so that he wasn't roasted alive, and crawl out with just a wrenched shoulder and a lot of cuts and bruises? He couldn't bail out because he was flying too low, hoping for a break through the clouds through which to spot something flat enough to come down on; he doesn't like bailing out anyway, hates to throw away a good plane. ("Jane Brown's Body") — Cornell Woolrich

Flying Airplane Quotes By Tom Giaquinto

It's an amazing experience when you focus on the positive things in your life. Things start to change. You become happier. You see things differently. There might still be negative things there, but like an airplane flying overhead, they become the background noise of your mind. — Tom Giaquinto

Flying Airplane Quotes By Ted Danson

If you take one rivet out of an airplane, it will be all right, it'll keep flying. You take another rivet out of the airplane and it still flies. So what the heck, let's take more rivets out of the airplane, and sooner or later, the airplane drops from the sky. — Ted Danson

Flying Airplane Quotes By Terence Winter

I guess ... I'm going to get that ice cream sundae they give you on the airplane. I usually pass on that, but I think I'm actually going to get extra whipped cream and maybe even the chocolate syrup. I'm really winging it here. I'm going to be flying. It's really a little too early to start drinking. — Terence Winter

Flying Airplane Quotes By Kesha

I try to get in quiet time and book time, but really, the only time I ever get that is when I'm on an airplane - I have a fear of flying, but I actually love flying because it's the only time I can sleep, and it's the only time I get to read. — Kesha

Flying Airplane Quotes By Charles Lindbergh

Not long ago, when I was a student in college, just flying an airplane seemed a dream. But that dream turned into reality. — Charles Lindbergh

Flying Airplane Quotes By Kyle Gallner

I am terrified of flying. I am a wreck right before I get on an airplane. That, and the ocean. I can only get in there for 10 minutes, I have this strong urge to run out and I won't go back in for the rest of the day. I've always been like that. — Kyle Gallner

Flying Airplane Quotes By Richard Bach

We're different, we're the same. You thought you'd never find a word to say to a woman who didn't fly airplanes. I couldn't imagine myself spending time with a man who didn't love music. Could it be it's not as important to be alike as it is to be curious? Because we're different, we can have the fun of exchanging worlds, giving our loves and excitements to each other. You can learn music, I can learn flying. And that's only the beginning. I think it would go on for us as long as we live. — Richard Bach

Flying Airplane Quotes By Arnold Palmer

I started [flying] by being scared.

Flying Airplane Quotes By Margot Robbie

I love flying so much. I even like airplane food. No one bothers you and your phone never goes off and you can't have emails go through. It's undisturbed. — Margot Robbie

Flying Airplane Quotes By Barack Obama

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

Flying Airplane Quotes By Nevil Shute

To put your life in danger from time to time ... breeds a saneness in dealing with day-to-day trivialities. — Nevil Shute

Flying Airplane Quotes By Ann Richards

Flying Airplane Quotes By Anne Lamott

My idea of everything going smoothly on an airplane is (a) that I not die in a slow-motion fiery crash or get stabbed to death by terrorists and (b) that none of the other passengers try to talk to me. All conversation should end at the moment the wheels leave the ground. — Anne Lamott

Flying Airplane Quotes By Billy Collins

Now I would say at any given moment in American life, there are probably 45 poets in airplanes vectoring across the country heading towards ... I don't know if anyone's reading it, but poets are still flying around the country going from lectern to lectern.That circuitry has become very well-established. — Billy Collins

Flying Airplane Quotes By Richard Bach

My airplane is quiet, and for a moment still an alien, still a stranger to the ground, I am home. — Richard Bach

Flying Airplane Quotes By John L. Phillips

My dad served in two wars has been flying airplanes for 60 years now. He was certainly quite an inspiration. — John L. Phillips

Flying Airplane Quotes By Milan Kundera

All this time he was sitting up in bed and looking at the woman who was lying beside him and holding his hand in her sleep. He felt an ineffable love for her. Her sleep must have been very light at the moment because she opened her eyes and gazed up at him questioningly.
"What are you looking at?" she asked.
He knew that instead of waking her he should lull her back to sleep, so he tried to come up with an answer that would plant the image of a new dream in her mind.
"I'm looking at the stars," he said.
"Don't say you're looking at the stars. That's a lie. You're looking down."
"That's because we're on an airplane. The stars are below us."
"Oh, in an airplane," said Tereza, squeezing his hand even tighter and falling asleep again. And Tomas knew that Tereza was looking out of the round window of an airplane flying high above the stars. — Milan Kundera

Flying Airplane Quotes By Philip Cunliffe-Lister, 1st Earl Of Swinton

We want the air to unite the peoples, and not to divide them. — Philip Cunliffe-Lister, 1st Earl Of Swinton

Flying Airplane Quotes By Peter Diamandis

If you have a fear of flying, don't. The data are very clear: If you have to travel someplace, the safest way is by airplane. — Peter Diamandis

Flying Airplane Quotes By Jacqueline Cochran

In the case of an airplane, speed is determined by the outcome of the conflict between thrust of the power and drag of the plane. So it also is with humans. — Jacqueline Cochran

Flying Airplane Quotes By Bob Hoover

I don't think I possess any skill that anyone else doesn't have. I've just had perhaps more of an opportunity, more of an exposure, and been fortunate to survive a lot of situations that many other weren't so lucky to make it. It's not how close can you get to the ground, but how precise can you fly the airplane. If you feel so careless with you life that you want to be the world's lowest flying aviator you might do it for a while. But there are a great many former friends of mine who are no longer with us simply because they cut their margins to close. — Bob Hoover

Flying Airplane Quotes By Wendy Sue Knecht

I know people have very little control on an airplane, and that exacerbates the fear of flying. As you probably know, flying is a lot safer than driving. If you think of the thousands of take-offs and landings every day--and the miniscule amount of crashes--that has to put your mind at ease. — Wendy Sue Knecht

Flying Airplane Quotes By Ernest K. Gann

When he climbed into the Penelope or any other airplane, the same change always came over him and the character of the change was so strong that even Stutz himself was aware of it. He exchanged his earthly freedom of thinking for what had to be a series of disciplined facts. To absorb and segregate these facts, all in their right and proper order, was his duty, a$ it was of any professional pilot. Not only was it his duty but it was his sole defense against dependency on luck, and although he was aware of the power of luck, it was indicative that Stutz never considered it as a means to an end as long as he was flying. — Ernest K. Gann

Flying Airplane Quotes By Richard Bach

What I love doing is basically two things: I love flying airplanes and I love communication. — Richard Bach

Flying Airplane Quotes By Henry Spencer

Spaceflight, especially in the Mercury spacecraft, clearly wasn't going to be much like flying an airplane. — Henry Spencer

Flying Airplane Quotes By Maggie Shipstead

An airplane crossed the sky, and she imagined its interior-people packed in rows like eggs in a carton, the chemical smell of the toilets, pretzels in foil pouches, cans hiss-popping open, black oval of night sky embedded in the rattling walls. How strange that something so drab, so confined, so stifling with sour exhalations and the fumes of indifferent machinery might be mistaken for a star. — Maggie Shipstead

Flying Airplane Quotes By Danny Meyer

I never get sick on airplanes, which is incredible. You're basically in a flying petri dish. — Danny Meyer

Flying Airplane Quotes By Sightline Institute

A human on a bicycle is more efficient (in calories expended per pound and per mile) than a train, truck, airplane, boat, automobile, motorcycle, skateboard, canoe, or jet pack. Not only that, bicycling is more efficient than walking, which takes three times as many calories per mile. In fact, pound for pound, a person on a bike can go farther on a calorie of food than a gazelle can running, a salmon swimming, or an eagle flying. — Sightline Institute

Flying Airplane Quotes By Madeleine Albright

When somebody is flying airplanes into buildings and killing innocent people in the name of God, it makes you question why do they have that interpretation and somebody else has another interpretation, and how many people of Muslim faith would agree with that, and what are the different aspects of different people's religions that is so divisive, rather than being unifying? — Madeleine Albright

Flying Airplane Quotes By Richard Bach

When you're flying, an airplane doesn't care who you are; it doesn't care how much money you make or don't make. All it cares about is: How well do you fly? How well do you know the airplane? How well do you know the sky? — Richard Bach

Flying Airplane Quotes By Wendell Willkie

The modern airplane creates a new geographical dimension. A navigable ocean of air blankets the whole surface of the globe. There are no distant places any longer: the world is small and the world is one. — Wendell Willkie

Flying Airplane Quotes By Bertrand Piccard

I came up with idea of a solar airplane flying around the world with no fuel - that would be a beautiful message in terms of technology, the energy of the future and the environment. — Bertrand Piccard

Flying Airplane Quotes By Paul Hellyer

UFO's are as real as the airplanes flying overhead. — Paul Hellyer

Flying Airplane Quotes By Donna Tartt

I realized that the childish impression I had always had of my father, as Just Lawgiver, was entirely wrong. We were utterly dependent on this man, who was not only deluded and ignorant, but incompetent in every way. What was more, I knew that my mother was incapable of standing up to him. It was like walking into the cockpit of an airplane and finding the pilot and co-pilot passed out drunk in their seats. And standing outside the Lyceum, I was struck with a black, incredulous horror, which in fact was not at all unlike the horror I had felt at twelve, sitting on a bar stool in our sunny little kitchen in Plano. Who is in control here? I thought, dismayed. Who is flying this plane? — Donna Tartt

Flying Airplane Quotes By Francis Gary Powers

I was a pilot flying an airplane and it just so happened that, where I was flying, made what I was doing spying. — Francis Gary Powers

Flying Airplane Quotes By Arnold Palmer

I would not have been able to accomplish a lot of what I did professionally had I not learned to fly myself and owned an airplane. For example, I was able to fly to an exhibition for the day and be back home in time for dinner. I never would have been able to do that flying commercially. — Arnold Palmer

Flying Airplane Quotes By Lauren Oliver

I keep quiet and look out the window. The light is weak and watery-looking, like the sun hast just spilled itself over the horizon and is too lazy to clean itself up. The shadows are as sharp and pointed as needles. I watch three black crows take off simultaneausly from a telephone wire and wish I could take off too, move up, up, up, and watch the ground drop away from me the way it does when you're on an airplane, folding and compressing into itself like an origami figure, until everything is flat and brightly colored - until the world is like a drawing of itself — Lauren Oliver

Flying Airplane Quotes By Samuel Butler

Flying. Whatever any other organism has been able to do man should surely be able to do also, though he may go a different way about it. — Samuel Butler

Flying Airplane Quotes By Arnold Palmer

Ever since I bought and started flying an airplane, it's been almost exclusively for business. I love to fly. It's a great joy to me. But rarely do I use it for any kind of pleasure, other than it is a pleasure to fly. — Arnold Palmer

Flying Airplane Quotes By Dave Barry

If Charles Lindbergh, flying with no instruments other than a bologna sandwich, managed to cross the Atlantic and land safely on a runway completely covered with French people, why are today's airplanes, which are equipped with radar and computers and individualized liquor bottles, unable to cope with fog? — Dave Barry

Flying Airplane Quotes By Arnold Palmer

I can't afford the luxury of music while I'm flying an airplane. I have to pay attention to what I'm doing. — Arnold Palmer

Flying Airplane Quotes By Gwynne Shotwell

What would air travel look like if airplanes were thrown out after each flight? No one would be flying in airplanes. — Gwynne Shotwell

Flying Airplane Quotes By Samantha Towle

My grandpa used to be in the Royal Air Force when he was younger," Liam tells me. "He loved to fly. He had his own airplane. Still does. When I was twelve, he told me that he thought it was time that I learned how to fly a plane."

"You flew a plane when you were twelve?" I give him a shocked look.

"My grandpa's not exactly on the conventional side." The fondness on his face tells me that his grandpa means a great deal to him. "And when I say 'fly'" - he air quotes - "it was him flying and me being copilot. But twelve-year-old me thought that he meant literally fly the plane. So, I was shitting myself."

"I can imagine. I'd shit if someone said that to me now, and I'm twenty-two."

Liam laughs. "I think you'd probably surprise yourself."

"No, I'm pretty sure I'd surprise the person sitting with me - you know, after I shit myself. — Samantha Towle

Flying Airplane Quotes By Danica Patrick

If there's one great thing I think that's happened over the years, it's that women are being accepted into a man's world in all different areas, whether it's flying an airplane or driving a race car. — Danica Patrick

Flying Airplane Quotes By Lucy Hale

I hate flying. I don't planes. I get really anxious. — Lucy Hale

Flying Airplane Quotes By Golda Meir

My dear, old age is like an airplane flying in a storm. Once you're in it there's nothing you can do. You can't stop a plane, you can't stop a storm, you can't stop time. So you might as well take it easy, with wisdom. — Golda Meir

Flying Airplane Quotes By Dan Sofer

The two events were probably unrelated, but both jolted Dave the way a sudden air pocket reminds nervous passengers that they're soaring above the clouds in a pressurized metal tube. — Dan Sofer

Flying Airplane Quotes By Ron Weber

Never stop flying the airplane. — Ron Weber

Flying Airplane Quotes By Arnold Palmer

It is such a disappointment in American political reaction and actions. When some of our politicians are flying around the country in private airplanes all the time, using public services as their mode of private transportation, and then criticizing us who are in business. — Arnold Palmer

Flying Airplane Quotes By David M. Brown

I was interested in flying beginning at age 7, when a close family friend took me in his little airplane. And I remember looking at the wheel of the airplane as we rolled down the runway, because I wanted to remember the exact moment that I first went flying ... the other thing growing up is that I was always interested in science. — David M. Brown

Flying Airplane Quotes By Chris Hadfield

I once made myself black out by pulling G too quickly while flying an F-18. Being unconscious in a single-seat airplane is not good. Fortunately, I woke up in time. I learned how to better plug-in my anti-G suit. — Chris Hadfield

Flying Airplane Quotes By Arthur P. Warner

I thought I would keep it on the ground until I became familiar with it, but on account of the wind, I unexpectedly took to the air, and the first thing I knew, I was flying. — Arthur P. Warner

Flying Airplane Quotes By Calvin Coolidge

Why don't we just buy one airplane and let the pilots take turns flying it. — Calvin Coolidge

Flying Airplane Quotes By Vann Chow

There was nothing so special about First Class, apart from the amount of uncalled for, almost disturbing, attention I got from the various six-feet tall heavily made up air hostesses, that I would come back for more given the steep price tag. — Vann Chow

Flying Airplane Quotes By Charles Lindbergh

Flying a good airplane doesn't require near as much attention as a motor car. — Charles Lindbergh

Flying Airplane Quotes By Gregory Benford

It turns out that if you optimize the performance of a car and of an airplane, they are very far away in terms of mechanical features. So you can make a flying car. But they are not very good planes, and they are not very good cars. — Gregory Benford

Flying Airplane Quotes By William Langewiesche

I sometimes still go out hunting for bad weather, flying low in simple airplanes to explore the inner reaches of the clouds. Less experienced pilots occasionally join me, not to learn formal lessons about weather flying, but with a more advanced purpose in mind - to accompany me in the slow accumulation of experience through circumstances that never repeat in a place that defies mastery. — William Langewiesche

Flying Airplane Quotes By Morgan Freeman

When I was getting close to being accepted for pilot training, I was allowed to get in a jet airplane. I sat there looking at all those switches and dials and I got the distinct feeling that I was sitting in the nose of bomb. I realized my fantasies of flying and fighting were just that - fantasies. — Morgan Freeman
