Famous quotes containing the words rocket and/or launched:

    A rocket is an experiment; a star is an observation.
    José Bergamín (1895–1983)

    Once you’ve been launched into parenthood, you’ll need all your best skills, self-control, good judgment and patience. But at the same time there is nothing like the thrill and exhilaration that come from watching that bright, cheerful, inquisitive, creative, eccentric and even goofy child you have raised flourish and shine. That’s what keeps you going, and what, in the end, makes it all worthwhile.
    Lawrence Balter (20th century)
