Count your blessings, not your troubles;
Decisions are too important to leave to chance;
Nothing wastes more energy than worrying;
Try not to take life too seriously;
Friendship is a wise investment;
Life’s treasures are people working together;
Do ordinary things in an extraordinary way;
Make time to reflect and wish upon a star;
Take the days just one at a time.

To those who love aviation, the sky is home.
The higher we soar, the smaller we appear to those who cannot fly.
Flying might not be all plain sailing, but the fun of it is worth the price.
Pilots track their lives by the number of hours in the air, as if any other kind of time isn’t worth noting.
When old dreams die, new ones come to take their place. God pity a one-dream man.
