Where ignorance lurks, so too do the frontiers of discovery and imagination.

Science cuts two ways, of course; its products can be used for both good and evil. But there's no turning back from science. The early warnings about technological dangers also come from science.

For those who have seen the Earth from space, and for the hundreds and perhaps thousands more who will, the experience most certainly changes your perspective. The things that we share in our world are far more valuable than those which divide us.

Science has not yet mastered prophecy. We predict too much for the next year and yet far too little for the next 10.

We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win.

Across the sea of space, the stars are other suns.

Dinosaurs are extinct today because they lacked opposable thumbs and the brainpower to build a space program.

We have an infinite amount to learn both from nature and from each other

We are all connected; To each other, biologically. To the earth, chemically. To the rest of the universe atomically.

The dreams of yesterday are the hopes of today and the reality of tomorrow.

The sky is the limit only for those who aren't afraid to fly!

There can be no thought of finishing for ‘aiming for the stars.’ Both figuratively and literally, it is a task to occupy the generations. And no matter how much progress one makes, there is always the thrill of just beginning.

The Earth was small, light blue, and so touchingly alone, our home that must be defended like a holy relic. The Earth was absolutely round. I believe I never knew what the word round meant until I saw Earth from space.

As I stand out here in the wonders of the unknown at Hadley, I sort of realize there’s a fundamental truth to our nature, Man must explore . . . and this is exploration at its greatest.

You know, being a test pilot isn't always the healthiest business in the world.

Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the Moon. July 1969 AD. We came in peace for all mankind.

We Want to Explore

Buy why, some say, the moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may as well ask why climb the highest mountain?

We are all connected; To each other, biologically. To the earth, chemically. To the rest of the universe atomically.

Many say exploration is part of our destiny, but it’s actually our duty to future generations and their quest to ensure the survival of the human species.

Failure is not an option.

It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth. I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth. I didn't feel like a giant. I felt very, very small.

Pier Pressure

I don't criticize you! And if you're worried about criticism, sometimes a diet is the best defense. Did you enjoy your meal, Mom? You drank it fast enough. It's a hug, Michael. I'm hugging you. Guy's a pro. Whoa, this guy's straight?

Let 'Em Eat Cake

No! I was ashamed to be SEEN with you. I like being with you. No, I did not kill Kitty. However, I am going to oblige and answer the nice officer's questions because I am an honest man with no secrets to hide. I care deeply for nature. Whoa, this guy's straight? Guy's a pro. I hear the jury's still out on science.

  • Marry me.
  • But I bought a yearbook ad from you, doesn't that mean anything anymore?

Good Grief!

I'm a monster. Bad news. Andy Griffith turned us down. He didn't like his trailer. But I bought a yearbook ad from you, doesn't that mean anything anymore? Not tricks, Michael, illusions. Whoa, this guy's straight? We just call it a sausage.

Good Grief!

Michael! That's why you always leave a note! But I bought a yearbook ad from you, doesn't that mean anything anymore? Michael! But I bought a yearbook ad from you, doesn't that mean anything anymore?

  1. No! I was ashamed to be SEEN with you. I like being with you.
  2. No… but I'd like to be asked!
  3. Get me a vodka rocks. And a piece of toast.
Forget-Me-Now

Guy's a pro. But I bought a yearbook ad from you, doesn't that mean anything anymore? What's Spanish for "I know you speak English?"

Amigos

I hear the jury's still out on science. I'm half machine. I'm a monster. Guy's a pro. As you may or may not know, Lindsay and I have hit a bit of a rough patch. Oh, you're gonna be in a coma, all right.

First place chick is hot, but has an attitude, doesn't date magicians. No… but I'd like to be asked! Did you enjoy your meal, Mom? You drank it fast enough.

It's called 'taking advantage.' It's what gets you ahead in life. I hear the jury's still out on science. Say goodbye to these, because it's the last time! I don't understand the question, and I won't respond to it. He'll want to use your yacht, and I don't want this thing smelling like fish. We just call it a sausage.
