I have tried to create main characters who are drastically different from the types who generally appear in crime novels.

When I write a song, what I usually do is work the lyric out first from some basic idea that I had, and then I get an acoustic guitar and I sit by the tape recorder and I try to bang it out as it comes. -Pete Townshend

If I could trade places with any of my sisters for a day, it would be Kim. I want to see what it's like… The only time she sleeps is on the airplane. It's just crazy. I feel bad for her, but I still want to know what it's like. -Kendall Jenner

I fly my own airplane, and I have since 1960. I rarely fly anywhere other than my own airplane. -Arnold Palmer

I like my airplane. It's as much a part of me as anything but my wife and kids. -Arnold Palmer

I read the newspaper online. Mostly 'The New York Times.' I'll still buy papers if I'm getting on an airplane or the tour bus, though. I like physical things. -Conor Oberst

The one thing that I'm most proud of, during the Second World War, I worked on airplanes in a defense plant. -Ruth Duccini

As I travelled around Australia, strangers in pubs, on airplanes, in beach parking lots would bring up Gina Rinehart, not knowing I was writing about her. Everybody had something to say, some of it thoughtful, some of it poorly informed, some of it vividly obscene. -William Finnegan

When I board an airplane these days, all the middle-aged men are dressed like me – when I was an 8-year-old. They're in shorts and T-shirts. And it's not just on airplanes. It's in business offices, teachers' lounges, and churches. -P. J. O'Rourke

I think there's something about traveling in airplanes all the time that's not the healthiest thing in the world for you. -Robert Osborne

I think a loaded weapon aboard an airplane, whether it's in the cargo section or in your overhead baggage, is a security issue. -Janice Hahn

I met my wife, Jennifer, while sitting next to her on the airplane on the way to England. I was heading to Oxford as a Marshall scholar. -Derek Kilmer

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

You've got to pay me to leave my house, spend the night in hotels and fly in airplanes. That's what I get paid for. Playing I actually do for free. -John Oates

I don't go anywhere without Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream. On airplanes, I slather it on my face and lips – I know I look crazy, and I don't care! -Eve

I did want to be a pilot. I wanted to be a military pilot because I liked airplanes. I was interested in modeling airplanes. -Roman Romanenko

Slow travel now rivals the fly-to-Barcelona-for-lunch culture. Advocates savour the journey, travelling by train or boat or bicycle, or even on foot, rather than crammed into an airplane. They take time to plug into the local culture instead of racing through a list of tourist traps. -Carl Honore

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

I know the rigors of network news. I didn't want to be jumping on an airplane twice a week. I didn't want to be tied to my pager and my cellphone. -Jane Clayson

When you get into an airplane by yourself and take off, you find yourself in this lovely, three-dimensional world where you can go in any direction. There is no feeling any more exciting than that. -Gene Roddenberry

The mishandling of the would-be airplane bomber Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab's visa is only the latest piece of evidence that the granting of visas should be taken away from the State Department. For the granting of visas – especially today, when terrorism is such a complex threat – is far closer to being a law-enforcement function. -Elliott Abrams

When it comes to comedy, it might be interesting to know why an airplane works, but really? Maybe it's better not to know why certain things work. Just fly the thing, and if nothing falls apart, you'll be fine. -Bill Hader

My shoots are very much about skin, so I'm an exfoliating and moisturizing nut. I fly so much, so I take my makeup off as soon as I get on the airplane. I look at my watch every half hour and moisturize. -Chrissy Teigen

I was a typical American boy. I did a lot of outdoor activities, played a lot outside with my friends, loved to go the beach, liked to hike, boating and fishing, and I flew a lot of model airplanes as well. -Alan G. Poindexter

I've owned 41 airplanes. A few of them would talk with me. This little seaplane, though, we've had long conversations in flight. There's a spirit in anything, I think, into which we weave our soul. Not many pilots talk about it, but they think about it in the quiet dark of a night flight. -Richard Bach

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

There are not many things I find more disgusting than recycled airplane air. -Brittany Bowe

Crossword puzzles, Sudoku… I'm good at all those things. It's not daily, but I'll do stuff on the airplane. I love playing chess. It's my favorite game. -Larry Fitzgerald

Hobbies take place in the cellar and smell of airplane glue. -John Updike

To work with someone you love is something special, an incredible experience. But it could be a negative. You have to make a strong commitment to be honest; you're not just being polite, like strangers on an airplane; you're working. -Diane Ladd

In modern times, if you're on an airplane and it's going down, that's it. You've got a couple of minutes, if that, to work out where you stand in relationship to the whole of your life. -Linus Roache

In 1957, with the arms race in full swing, the Department of Defense had decided it was just a matter of time before an airplane transporting an atomic bomb would crash on American soil, unleashing a radioactive disaster the likes of which the world had never seen. -Annie Jacobsen

With respect to Iraq, I did favour the continuity of American forces to work with the new Maliki government. They had enormous needs for intelligence, for training on everything from airplanes to more sophisticated ground equipment and the like. -Hillary Clinton

I never have more than one bag at a time. I think one is already quite enough. Also, I hate changing bags, so I never have the thing of having ten bags. Any bag that's with me will take the same course as I will. It will take the same airplanes and will be squashed in the same way and will be used as a cushion in the airports. -Jane Birkin

Growing up, I was fascinated with Buck Rogers' airplanes. As I began to mature in World War II, it became jets and rocket planes. But it was always in the air. -Buzz Aldrin

I'm urging NASA to foster the development of what I call 'runway landers.' No, that's not the name of a high stakes gambler from Vegas. It's a type of spacecraft that flies to orbit like the retiring Shuttles but then glides to a landing like an airplane on a runway. Just like the Shuttles do. -Buzz Aldrin

I shot down two airplanes in Korea, so I wasn't a slouch. -Buzz Aldrin

I don't like to have a calm, orderly, quiet place to work. I often compose while driving, compose in my head. It is true that I wrote my little book, 'The Sounds of Poetry, A Brief Guide,' almost entirely in airplanes and airport departure lounges. -Robert Pinsky

When I won my way to the international science fair, I didn't want to embarrass myself. It was the first time I was going to be away from home, the first time taking an airplane. I went to the local library, checked out every single etiquette book, and I read those books like I was uncovering some sort of treasure. -Charles M. Blow

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

The U.S. has not been big in new coaches – the U.S. is really behind Europe. It's the great passenger car and airplane that dominate American travel, and trains and buses have been much more secondary. -Charles Pelly

We produce motor drive electronics; we produce cargo systems for large narrow-body and wide-body airplanes and, more importantly, the emergency escape chute that goes on these planes. -Louis R. Chenevert

I laughed at Willie Nelson, wondering why he spends all his life on that tour bus. And I look at myself, and I'm sitting in airplanes half the time. -Del Shannon

I used to do my best thinking while staring out airplane windows. The seat-back video system put a stop to that. Now I sit and watch old' Friends' and 'Everybody Loves Raymond' episodes. Walking is good, but here again, technology has interfered. I like to listen to iTunes while I walk home. I guess I don't think anymore. -Mary Roach

I used to fly airplanes myself, so being above the ground doesn't worry me too much. -John Rhys-Davies

I lost two brothers in an airplane crash, both of them leaving a wife and kids. When I get to Heaven, that's probably the first question I'd like to ask: 'Why was it necessary?' -S. Truett Cathy

I got a promo of 'Nichts Muss' in what would have been 2002 or 2003 and fell totally in love with it after listening to it on an airplane that took me to Australia via Taipei and Kuala Lumpur. -John Darnielle

Go up in an airplane. Go high enough, and it's like we don't even exist. -Muhammad Ali

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

I really find that when I get on an airplane, I never drink anything but water, and I drink a ton of it. I like to sit in the window, but I'm always climbing over people to go to the bathroom. I'm that seatmate. But ya gotta do it. All about the water. -Elizabeth Banks

My mom worked for Lockheed Corp. in Burbank as an inspector of airplane parts. To help make ends meet, Dee, a friend of my mom's from Lockheed, moved in. She was a lovely person and helped with our care for many years. -Rene Russo

I go to dinner with my friends, and we're like, 'Let's put our phones on airplane mode so we can really enjoy each other's company.' -Ansel Elgort

If I'm getting on an airplane or anywhere, really, I have a lunch box and stuff. It's a running joke with my friends and family – everyone gives me lunch boxes for Christmas. -Nikki Reed

If I were king of the world, babies born in airplanes, balloons and blimps would, instead of choosing to be German, Maldivian or American, all get special heavenly blue passports with a stork on the cover labeled 'Sky Baby' – and they'd be allowed to come and go anywhere they please. -Robert Krulwich

I was the first in my family to board an airplane. I was the first in my family to get kicked off an airplane. -Trevor Noah

I play golf, and I play chess, and sometimes I go to the gym. On the airplane or between acts when I do the performance, I play Candy Crush to forget what happens around me, just to be alone, not thinking… You need to clear your brain. -Ildar Abdrazakov

Computers and computing are all around us. Some computing is highly visible, like your laptop. But this is only part of a computing iceberg. A lot more lies hidden below the surface. We don't see and usually don't think about the computers inside appliances, cars, airplanes, cameras, smartphones, GPS navigators and games. -Brian Kernighan

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

I was in a band called the SteelDrivers, and we just played hard in vans, hopping on airplanes, not knowing where you're at. -Chris Stapleton

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

As a kid, I used to dream about airplanes before I ever flew in one. I really knew, when I started photographing, I wanted it to be a way of knowing different cultures, not just in other countries but in this country, too, and I knew I wanted to enter other lives. I knew I wanted to be a voyeur. -Mary Ellen Mark

During my training to become an airline captain, I had to learn how to navigate an airplane over long distances. Flights over huge oceans, crossing extensive deserts, and connecting continents need careful planning to ensure a safe arrival at the planned destination. -Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Electromagnetic theory and experiment gave us the telephone, radio, TV, computers, and made the internal combustion engine practical – thus, the car and airplane, leading inevitably to the rocket and outer-space exploration. -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

As in biomedical science, pioneering industrial inventions have not been mothered by necessity. Rather, inventions for which there was no commercial use only later became the commercial airplanes, xerography and lasers on which modern society depends. -Arthur Kornberg

On the first 'Indiana Jones' movie, I tore an ACL in one of my knees – can't remember which knee. The scene in which I was fighting the big German mechanic on an airplane called a flying wing, I was run over by the landing gear and injured my knee, but I can't remember which one it was. Lots of bumps and injuries along the way. -Harrison Ford

Jimmy Carter used to walk off the airplane carrying his own luggage. Do you remember that? I don't want my president carrying – I want the freaking Marines to be carrying his luggage, and they want to carry his luggage. -Donald Trump

I love Evian face spray because it's a really easy way to just freshen up your face, especially if you're traveling on an airplane – I get really dry on airplanes. -Olivia Culpo

I think that I got committed to physics at the age of – oh, it must have been 1942 – ten, when most countries were at war and children were interested in airplanes and bombs and such things. -Sheldon Lee Glashow

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

The construction of an airplane is simple compared with the evolutionary achievement of a bird. If I had to choose, I would rather have birds than airplanes. -Charles Lindbergh

My first airplane trip was to Paris. I had this fantasy that I would become a model, and I did! -Jerry Hall

Many people send me letters in England saying, 'I want to be a war photographer,' and I say, go out into the community that you live in. There's wars going on out there; you don't have to go halfway around the world on an airplane where there are bombs and shells. There are social wars that are worthwhile. -Don McCullin

I feel confused about what I'm supposed to be doing as a feminist because I do like fashion, and I do like magazines, too. I buy them on airplanes. I like seeing what hot trends are new this fall. It makes me feel very conflicted a lot of the time. -Megan Amram

'Twenty One Pilots' is a play by Arthur Miller, who also wrote 'All My Sons.' It's about a guy who's creating and developing parts for airplanes in war time, when it comes to his attention that some of these parts were faulty. -Josh Dun

I went to the University of Maryland for a year and was considering maybe, you know, being a medical doctor but decided my other interest was maybe flying airplanes in the Navy and just kind of changed my mind and changed schools and changed majors and decided to focus a hundred percent on that. -Scott Kelly

When I think about fashion and elegance, I imagine a woman from the 1950s, on an airplane, with seamed stockings and a garment belt underneath, a skirt, high heels, and her hair that she's done the night before, perfectly done eyeliner, lipstick, gloves, perhaps, and all this just to sit on an airplane for a transcontinental flight. -Liz Goldwyn

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

I always liked airplanes, and I decided I was going to go to school to study them. -Brian Binnie

People say that the best part about doing animation is that you don't have to dress up to go to work, but I don't believe that. I dress up to go to work. I dress up for an airplane. I think it's just focusing your skillset, focusing on your voice and the comedy. -Jenny Slate

At any time, somebody can blow themselves up and take Americans with them. They can blow up an airplane; they can crash an airplane. That's something we have to worry about every day – we spend 40 billion dollars yearly on homeland security. That has nothing to do with Crusades or any of that other nonsense. -John Fleming

I was hooked on aviation, made model airplanes, and never thought I would be able to fly myself. It cost too much. But then World War II came along and changed all that. -John Glenn

We have to remember that Arafat was the one that started with hijacking airplanes already in 1968. -Ariel Sharon

LaGuardia is jammed into just 680 urban acres; taxiways are tight; runways intersect; you can't launch a departure until the arrival on the other runway crosses the threshold or else the airplanes will … collide. -Jeanne Marie Laskas

We are ramping up security in the United States but also looking at visa applicants, visa waiver applicants – and looking at travel manifests on the airplanes trying to come into the United States. -Michael McCaul

Unfortunately, I've got airplanes that I can't even afford to use today that are sitting there. I'm still paying insurance on them; I'm still paying payments. -Robby Gordon

Like the producers of crops, airplanes, and books, producers of natural gas provide goods to meet the size of their available market. The larger the market, the more they can produce, and the more revenue they can obtain to cover their fixed costs and invest in future development. -Robert Zubrin

I had never been so challenged in an airplane that I doubted the outcome. -Chesley Sullenberger

Bigger airplanes, with two aisles instead of one, provide a better experience overall, and I think it's more comfortable. -Chesley Sullenberger

If you take one of the first flights out in the morning, typically the airplane and the crew have arrived the night before. When you're not waiting on an inbound flight, there are fewer delays. -Chesley Sullenberger

It's much like playing jazz, flying. It's multitasking in real time. You have a number of instruments that alone won't tell you exactly what the airplane is doing but together give you a picture of everything that's going on. -Aaron Diehl

The nature of Homeland Security is that no news is good news. And no news sometimes means somebody got interdicted at the border, somebody got interdicted before they could get on an airplane, somebody was arrested providing material support to terrorism. Homeland Security means very often something you never hear about. -Jeh Johnson

People resisted having weapons on airplanes, but I oversaw the federal air marshals. It's a deterrent. No one sees that weapon, but they are protected on that airplane, and it's a huge positive impact on safety. -Asa Hutchinson

I was a naval officer and aviator. I tested airplanes and got selected to be an astronaut later on. -Jim Lovell

I did a little bit of flying in high school, but I've just always been inspired and excited about airplanes. -Gregory H. Johnson

I remember the first time that I flew on an airplane overseas, it was about when I was seven; it was 1969. -Gregory H. Johnson

I don't like getting up in the morning, getting in a car, driving on a freeway, and stopping at a gate where two guards are standing there, then walk into a studio that looks like a bunch of airplane hangars. -Peter Falk

If you play a role, you want to familiarize yourself with that person's world. If I were playing an airline pilot or a doctor, I'd probably want to hang out with a doctor or an airplane pilot for a while, ask some questions. You don't get to hang out the kings. They don't help consult on movies. So your resources are, by necessity, secondary. -Colin Firth

I have no interest in jumping out of an airplane or any of the things people do for thrills, to push their limits and all that. To me, that seems foolish, and there's no point. -Anderson Cooper

Beyond self-driving cars, I think all airplanes should go pilotless. Get the pilots out of there. Even better, have no cockpit at all, and turn it into a nice lounge with a bar. Why give people the illusion of control with a steering wheel? -Steve Jurvetson

I do work-related stuff on airplanes. Then, when I'm in the hotel room or just vegging out, I read for pleasure. -Nathaniel Philbrick

Want to fire up a liberal? Dare to suggest that a nervous looking young Middle Eastern man standing in a TSA line to get on an airplane should be scrutinized. -Mike Gallagher

When my grandfather was born, there was no healthcare. There were no airplanes. There were no boats. There were no trains. There were no communications. No Internet. No widespread knowledge. It will be a completely different world but a much better place in a hundred years. -Jamie Dimon

I have run with the bulls in Pamplona. I have raced with Mario Andretti in Indianapolis. I have climbed the Great Wall of China. I have jumped out of airplanes over Kansas. -Craig Sager

As a young boy, I had the usual hobbies – sports, baseball cards, model airplanes and trains. But I always had a distinct fascination with trains. -Craig Sager

I love playing. If it was down to just that, it would be utopia. But it's not. It's airplanes, hotel rooms, limousines, and armed guards standing outside rooms. I don't get off on that part of it at all. -Jimmy Page

Every time you go to an airport and get on a plane, you are basically taking advantage of the work that was done at Langley. Between World War I and World War II, they did just tremendous amount of fundamental research into basically making airplanes safer, making them more stable. -Margot Lee Shetterly

As a Middle Eastern male, I know there's certain things I'm not supposed to say on an airplane in the U.S., right? I'm not supposed to be walking down the aisle, and be like, 'Hi, Jack.' That's not cool. Even if I'm there with my friend named Jack, I say, 'Greetings, Jack. Salutations, Jack.' Never 'Hi, Jack.' -Maz Jobrani

Here's my advice to my brown friends: The next time you're on an airplane in the U.S., just speak your mother tongue. That way, no one knows what you're saying. Life goes on. -Maz Jobrani

Being on an airplane a lot can dry out your skin, so it's important to bring a good mask to help refresh it. Also, I never go without SPF. It's one of the most important things to include in your daily beauty routine, no matter where you are in the world. -Isabeli Fontana

The most horrifying thing I ever did was work as a steward on an airplane. I wanted to get hired by United. I thought, 'With my languages, this will be amazing; I will work in First Class.' But I could only get a job with an airline going from Newark, New Jersey to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. -John Grant

I'm from a very small village in the middle of nowhere, four hours by airplane from Moscow. Yemanzhelinsk – you wouldn't find it on the map. Don't even try it. It's super, super tiny. -Irina Shayk

With a bucket of Lego, you can tell any story. You can build an airplane or a dragon or a pirate ship – it's whatever you can imagine. -Christopher Miller

Teleportation would be the best because I live on airplanes. It would be super handy to be able to teleport around. -Tom Holland

I used to fall into the trap of thinking that taking care of my husband and kids was more important than taking care of myself. Now I have a new attitude: You know when you're on an airplane and the manual tells you to put on your oxygen mask first and then help the person next to you? I feel the same way about my health. -Heidi Roizen

Today's new age parenting guarantees you'll hear children screaming, whining, and begging for items and attention in an airplane, store or any other public place. -GloZell

We fly to the town in the little private airplane, and then we have to get in cars and drive to the hotel and then drive to the gig. So, I want to do a tour where the performances will actually be at the small airports. -Walter Becker

I am proud that everybody is knowing me on the streets and airplanes and airports. -Angelique Kerber

It has occurred to me that if people really knew how software got written, I'm not sure they'd give their money to a bank or get on an airplane ever again. -Ellen Ullman

One of the metaphors that I use for start-ups is, you throw yourself off a cliff and assemble your airplane on the way down. If you don't solve the right problem at the right time, that's the end. Mortality puts priorities into sharp focus. -Reid Hoffman

Starting a company is like throwing yourself off the cliff and assembling an airplane on the way down. -Reid Hoffman

I'd be arrested if I still smoked because I'm the one who would be changing the battery in the airplane in the lavatory to take out the smoke detector. I would've been those people they warn you against. -John Waters

On airplanes, strangers confide in me the most deepest, darkest secrets. And I think they think I'll understand. And I generally do understand. -John Waters

Americans fear losing control if they're forced to ride in autonomous vehicles. These same Americans fly in airplanes every day that largely are flown by computers, and impressively efficient ones at that. -Adam Lashinsky

I've found I get big things done when I'm on airplanes or in hotel rooms. It's a total needle-mover to book a fantastic room in a place you adore and then put the 'do not disturb' on the phone and door for a week. -Robin S. Sharma

Flying small airplanes is not like being on airlines. -Doug Liman

Being on a commercial airplane is actually one of the safest places you can be on the planet. -Doug Liman

I believe that there will be women astronauts sometime just as there are women airplane pilots. -Nancy Roman

I like to write on tour busses and airplanes. Something about moving. -Bryce Dessner

I mostly read on airplanes and right before sleep. -Michael Connelly

I love getting oxygen facials because I travel a lot. My skin gets pretty dry with all the airplanes. -Lily Collins

I'm on a lot of airplanes. There are definitely times when I just vapor-lock. I'm on the plane, and I have so much to do, I just don't know what to do. It never lasts for very long. It might last for the flight. -Noah Hawley

I used to jump out of airplanes. I was a member of the 101st Airborne Division. When parachuting, you never look down at the ground. You feel for it with your legs. Your knees are your shock absorbers – you cannot tighten them. Same as skiing. -Jesse White

You don't jump out of an airplane and stop halfway. It's all the way. -Jesse White

Every airplane sale overseas generates U.S. jobs. -Dennis Muilenburg

The commercial airplane business is an incredible growth business. -Dennis Muilenburg

Unmanned airplanes – and more broadly, autonomy in space, in the air, undersea – is a big future area for Boeing and an area where we are continuing to build out collaborations. So we are always looking for partners in that arena. -Dennis Muilenburg

The Max 10 will provide customers with even more flexibility in terms of airplane range and higher seat count. -Dennis Muilenburg

As we deliver airplanes and we enable global travel and global cargo delivery, it provides overall economic growth around the world as well. -Dennis Muilenburg

My airplanes are necessary machines, as necessary to this business as our meat slicers. -Jimmy John Liautaud

It's very natural for me now. A lot of airplanes, a lot of flights, a lot of hotels. Go home to pack and leave. But I'm used to it. -Jessica Jung

If you're too dangerous to buy an airplane ticket, you're too dangerous to buy an assault weapon. And, when we talk about the Second Amendment – I support the Second Amendment – but the Second Amendment was created and designed to prevent tyranny and not to encourage terror. -Jim Gray

I think the weirdest question I've ever gotten was, 'If people had wheels and could fly, how would we differentiate them from airplanes?' -Randall Munroe

I have no artistic training – as you might have guessed from all the stick figures! – and there are a few things I have a really hard time drawing. I think the one that comes up the most is airplanes. Big airliners have such a weird wing shape, and I always have to redraw them 20 times before they're even recognizable. -Randall Munroe

I worked a lot of non-acting jobs for a really long time. They ranged from auto mechanic to landscaper to manual labor to working in a factory that made airplane parts. I even tried to go to school as a paramedic and ended up being an orderly in a hospital. -Michael Madsen

It's one thing to wear jerseys at games, which fans have been doing in great numbers for 30 years, dressing as if they might be summoned from the stands on a moment's notice to pinch-run. But those same jerseys are now omnipresent on airplanes, in restaurants, in doctor's waiting rooms. -Steve Rushin

All kingdoms look small through an airplane window – little dominions built on quicksand. But looking up from the ground, where most of us stand, they're rather impressive. -Steve Rushin

Some people believe the U.S. can't compete in the design and manufacture of sophisticated products. I think we absolutely can if we pull together. We have shown that we can do that in commercial airplanes, and we can absolutely prove that we can do that in automobiles. -Alan Mulally

My career has been spent developing airplanes. -Alan Mulally

I had a great life at Boeing. I'd been there for 37 years and contributed to all the Boeing airplanes as a designer: the 707, 727, 37, 47, 57, 67 and 'triple 7' and the 87. -Alan Mulally

The similarities between commercial airplanes and automobiles are striking. It's all about safe and efficient transportation using the latest technology and the best fuel efficiency. -Alan Mulally

'The Walking Dead' and 'Guardians of the Galaxy' have pumped up the recognition factor a thousand times. I can't get off an airplane anymore. I don't know how the hell they know and how these people find out. They must have some interesting, secret way of getting a hold of the flight manifesto or something. -Michael Rooker

It is absolutely absurd that someone who is deemed unsafe to get on an airplane is allowed to buy a gun in America. It's truly absurd. -Seth Moulton

I don't like looking like a crazy person in my seat with a mask on, so I go into the airplane bathroom, put it on for a minute, and then I'll wash it off. Once I'm out of the bathroom, nobody even knows I did the mask, but my skin does! -Madelaine Petsch

I literally live on American Airlines' 737 commercial airplane. -Daniel Schwartz

I kind of work on an airplane. The Burger King brand headquarters is in Miami. The Tim's headquarters and our head office is in Toronto. And we have international offices for the brands in Switzerland and Singapore, so I kind of bop back and forth around all the offices. And I try to spend most of my time visiting our restaurant owners. -Daniel Schwartz

Anyone who follows me on Twitter knows I – I show pictures of my airplanes. -Ed Schultz

I don't particularly want to jump out of an airplane with a parachute if I don't have to. I don't want to go bungee jumping. I like adventure with a real purpose that I can buy into. -John M. Grunsfeld

For me, people are like the black boxes found in the debris of airplane crashes. -Svetlana Alexievich

Even on tour, I spend two hours a night singing songs and the rest of the time staring at the back of people's heads on airplanes, some fat guy coughing on me. -Mark Kozelek

The promise of artificial intelligence and computer science generally vastly outweighs the impact it could have on some jobs in the same way that, while the invention of the airplane negatively affected the railroad industry, it opened a much wider door to human progress. -Paul Allen

I was playing Russell Long, the senator from Louisiana. I had 12 speech teachers watching me. All the other passengers on the airplane were speech teachers, and every time I got it wrong, one of the speech teachers would jump up and correct it. -Walter Matthau

I think WCW will kill any kind of joy in your life. I think I started hating money. The money they paid me was insane, but I would be off and fly first-class airplane, luxury cars and hotels, and then arrive at the arena and have Eric Bischoff tell you 5-10 minutes after 6 P.M. that you are off tonight. -Bret Hart

I'm not a huge risk taker. I think that, for me, I take certain kinds of risks, but if you look at me, you wouldn't say I was a big risk taker. I'm not going to jump out of an airplane and parachute and things like that. That's not really me. -Joan Allen
