Quotes about plane


1. Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home.
- Anna Quindlen, How Reading Changed My Life

2. Maybe mistakes are what make our fate... without them what would shape our lives? Maybe if we had never veered off course we wouldn't fall in love, have babies, or be who we are. After all, things change, so do cities, people come into your life and they go. But it's comforting to know that the ones you love are always in your heart... and if you're very lucky, a plane ride away
- Candace Bushnell, Sex and the City

3. Life is a gamble. You can get hurt, but people die in plane crashes, lose their arms and legs in car accidents; people die every day. Same with fighters: some die, some get hurt, some go on. You just don't let yourself believe it will happen to you.
- Muhammad Ali
