                Douglas Smith
                "The desire to fly is an idea handed down to us by our ancestors who... looked enviously on the birds
                 soaring freely through space... on the infinite highway of the air."
                 -Wilbur Wright
                Thomas Ehretsmann
                "Courage, will-power and confidence in your abilities will carry you to greater heights."
                -Lailah Gifty Akita
                Sylvain Sarrailh
                "We can scale the heights of mountains and see the world rayed out before us, but we fail to recognize that
                which is before us."
                -Ruth St. Denis
                                Jack Daly

                                -Henry Ward Beecher
                Chris Gall
                "With ideas it is like with dizzy heights you climb: At first they cause you discomfort and you are anxious
                to get down, distrustful of your own powers; but soon the remoteness of the turmoil of life and the inspiring
                influence of the altitude calm your blood; your step gets firm and sure and you begin to look- for dizzier heights."
                -Nikola Tesla
                 Michal Dziekan
                 "I think that you have to believe in your destiny; that you will succeed, you will meet a lot of rejection and
                 it is not always a straight path, there will be detours -so enjoy the view."
                 -Michael York
                Bill Sanderson
                "My theory is that the way you cope with the depths will ascertain the heights that you reach- they are
                intimately connected - and if you have a lust for life, you are also going to have a lust for death."
                -Sebastian Horsley
                 C.F. Payne
                 "A city is not gauged by its length and width, but by the broadness of its vision and the height of its dreams"
                 -Herb Caen
                Dongyun Lee
               "People are in such a hurry to launch their product or business that they seldom look at marketing from
               a bird's eye view and they don't create a systematic plan."
               -Dave Ramsey
                     Tim Bower
                     "Surely there is grandeur in knowing that in the realm of thought, at least, you are without chain;
                     that you have the right to explore all heights and depth; that there are no walls nor fences, nor prohibited
                     places, nor sacred corners in all the vast expanse of thought."
                     -Robert Green Ingersoll
                           Paul Cox
                           "I guess everyone has a bird urge when they look down heights, a desire to jump, without wing
                           or buoyant sail.  Fear of heights is fear of a desire to jump."
                           -Amruta Patil
                 John Mattos
                 "May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view..."
                 -Edward Abbey
                Eric Drooker
                "Whoever is related to me in the height of his aspirations will experience veritable ectasies of learning;
                for I come from heights that no bird ever reached in its flight, I know abysses into which no foot ever strayed."
                -Friedrich Nietzche
                 Michal Lisowski
                 "The world essentially doesn't change - - only the altitude from which we see it and the attitude with
                 which we engage with it."
                Oscar Ramos
                "It's only when you're flying above it that you realize how incredible the Earth really is.""
                -Phillippe Perrin
                Borja Bonaque
                "A well-ordered life is like climbing a tower; the view halfway up is better than the view from the base,
                and it steadily becomes finer as the horizon expands."
                - William Lyon Phelps
                 Piotr Jablonski
                "There is no top. There are always further heights to reach."
                -Jascha Heifetz
                 Mark Elliott
                 "Birds have wings; they're free; they can fly where they want when they want. They have the kind of mobility
                 many people envy."
                 -Roger Tory Peterson
                David Johnson
                "Before the gates of excellence the high gods have placed sweat; long is the road thereto and rough and
                steep at first; but when the heights are reached, then there is ease,, then there is ease, though grievously                                  hard in the winning."
                Jon Foster
                "Sometimes you don't realize your fear of heights until you stand at the edge of the cliff, ready to jump."
               Gary Kelley
               "Set your heights more than what you see around you, see beyond."
               -Anthony Anderson
