Famous quotes containing the word flying:

    Y’know plenty of people, in their right mind, thought they saw things that didn’t exist, y’know, like flying saucers. The light was just right, and the angle and the imagination. Oh boy, if that’s what it is, then this is just an ordinary night. You and I are going to go home and go to sleep and tomorrow when we get up that sun’s gonna shine. Just like yesterday. Good ol’ yesterday.
    —Theodore Simonson. Irvin S. Yeaworth, Jr.. Steve Andrews (Steven McQueen)

    Someone is always at my elbow reminding me that I am the grand-daughter of slaves. It fails to register depression with me. Slavery is sixty years in the past. The operation was successful and the patient is doing well, thank you. The terrible struggle that made me an American out of a potential slave said “On the line!” The Reconstruction said “Go!” I am off to a flying start and I must not halt in the stretch to look behind and weep.
    Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960)

    He was last seen flying to New York.
    He was handing out cards which read:
    “He wears a question in his left eye.
    He dislikes the police but will associate with them.
    He will demand something not on the menu.
    He is invisible to the eyes of beauty and culture....”
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
