"Here is the story of flying, from the dreams of ancient Greece to the wonders of the present day, presented in brief, authoritative text and superb watercolor paintings. It is a fascinating story of people and ideas, of adventure and daring, and of flying machines."
--MELVIN B. ZISFEIBN, Flight, A Panorama of Aviation
"The Greeks believed that their heroic dead appeared before the living in the form of a horse....The soul of the deceased was often depicted in horse-shape."

--NIKOLAS YALOURIS, Pegasus: The Art of the Legend

"Now he (Pegasus) flew away and left the earth, the mother of flocks, and came to the deathless gods: and he dwells in the house of Zeus and brings to wise Zeus the thunder and lightning."

--HESIOD, The Theogonty, vv, 284-86
"And the voice said:
Well you don't know me,
but I know you
And I've got a message to give to you.
Here come the planes
So you better get ready. Ready to go. You can come
as you are, but pay as you go...
They're American planes. MNade in America.
Smoking or non-smoking?"

"O Superman"
for my family, past and present
First words
It's strange what you don't forget.
