"For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards,

for there you have been and there you will long to return."

- Leonardo da Vinci

"It is possible to fly without motors, but not without knowledge and skill."
- Wilbur Wright

"Ballooning is a philosophy of life. You're a prisoner of the wind. You can swear, shout, pray, cry - and it doesn't matter.
But if you change your altitude, you can go a different direction"

- Bertrand Piccard

"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the number of moments that take our breath away."
- Will Smith

"Time is the most valuable gift you can give someone"
- Unknown
