Bono Fotografia

„Don't get me too excited because I use four letter words when I get excited.“

—  Bono Irish rock musician, singer of U2 1960

PENN Address (2004)
Kontekst: Don't get me too excited because I use four letter words when I get excited.
I'd just like to say to the parents, your children are safe, your country is safe, the FCC has taught me a lesson and the only four letter word I'm going to use today is P-E-N-N. Come to think of it 'Bono' is a four-letter word. The whole business of obscenity — I don't think there's anything certainly more unseemly than the sight of a rock star in academic robes. It's a bit like when people put their King Charles spaniels in little tartan sweats and hats. It's not natural, and it doesn't make the dog any smarter.

Robert G. Ingersoll Fotografia

„At last it occurred to the intelligent to examine our own religion, and this examination has excited great interest and great comment.“

—  Robert G. Ingersoll Union United States Army officer 1833 - 1899

"The Brooklyn Divines." Brooklyn Union (Brooklyn, NY), 1883.
Kontekst: Of late years the thoughts of men have been turned, by virtue of modern discoveries, as the result of countless influences, to an investigation of the foundation of orthodox religion. Other religions were put in the crucible of criticism, and nothing was found but dross. At last it occurred to the intelligent to examine our own religion, and this examination has excited great interest and great comment. People want to hear, and they want to hear because they have already about concluded themselves that the creeds are founded in error.

Neil Armstrong Fotografia

„The exciting part for me, as a pilot, was the landing on the moon.“

—  Neil Armstrong American astronaut; first person to walk on the moon 1930 - 2012

Interview at The New Space Race (August 2007) http://library.thinkquest.org/07aug/00861/armstrongiscool.htm
Kontekst: The exciting part for me, as a pilot, was the landing on the moon. That was the time that we had achieved the national goal of putting Americans on the moon. The landing approach was, by far, the most difficult and challenging part of the flight. Walking on the lunar surface was very interesting, but it was something we looked on as reasonably safe and predictable. So the feeling of elation accompanied the landing rather than the walking.

„It is the mark of a great man that he puts to flight all ordinary calculations. He is at once sublime and touching, childlike and of the race of giants.“

—  Honoré de Balzac French writer 1799 - 1850

Le propre d’un grand homme est de dérouter les calculs ordinaires. Il est sublime et attendrissant, naïf et gigantesque.
