Wright Brothers

Read Time= 1 Minute

“The Wright Brothers created the single greatest cultural force since the invention of writing. The airplane became the first World Wide Web, bringing people, languages, ideas, and values together.” – Bill Gates

“The desire to fly is an idea handed down to us by our ancestors who, in their grueling travels across trackless lands in prehistoric times, looked enviously on the birds soaring freely through space, at full speed, above all obstacles, on the infinite highway of the air.”- Wilbur Wright

“The Wright brothers flew through the smoke screen of impossibility.”- Dorthea Brande

More than anything else the sensation is one of perfect peace mingled with an excitement that strains every nerve to the utmost, if you can conceive of such a combination.”- Wilbur Wright

“The exhilaration of flying is too keen, the pleasure too great, for it to be neglected as a sport.”- Orville Wright

“What is chiefly needed is skill rather than machinery.”- Wilbur Wright

“It is possible to fly without motors, but not without knowledge and skill.”- Wilbur Wright

“Do not let yourself be forced into doing anything before you are ready.”- Wilbur Wright

    Education quote I use from the Wright Brothers: β€œIt is not really necessary to look too far into the future; we see enough already to be certain it will be magnificent. Only let us hurry and open the roads.”
    -Wilbur Wright
