I am afraid I am not in the flight for “aerial navigation”. I was greatly interested in your work with kites; but I have not the smallest molecule of faith in aerial navigation other than ballooning or of expectation of good results from any of the trials we hear of. So you will understand that I would not care to be a member of the aëronautical Society.
Neither the Army nor the Navy is of any protection, or very little protection, against aerial raids.alexander graham bell
Come, swift-wing'd Fancy, airy maid,In varied, dazzling vest array'd,Inspire thy vot'ry's lay;Grant me thy flow'ry walks to tread,To range thy summer-painted mead,Or near thy fountain play.Now led by thy resistless hand,Or guided by thy fairy wand,O'er yet untrodden space;Or on thy pinions borne along,The bright Ideas' flitting throngsPursue th' aerial race.elizabeth bentley

I was asked the other day ... why do you think the administration decided to spare Saddam Hussein ... and I said I think because they thought they might need him again...christopher hitchens

It is the Harvest Moon! On gilded vanes and roofs of villages, on woodland crests and their aerial neighborhoods of nests deserted, on the curtained window-panes of rooms where children sleep, on country lanes and harvest-fields, its mystic splendor rests.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Come, swift-wing'd Fancy, airy maid, In varied, dazzling vest array'd, Inspire thy vot'ry's lay; Grant me thy flow'ry walks to tread, To range thy summer-painted mead, Or near thy fountain play. Now led by thy resistless hand, Or guided by thy fairy wand, O'er yet untrodden space; Or on thy pinions borne along, The bright Ideas' flitting throngs Pursue th' aerial race.
The organization chart is a sort of map, an aerial photograph if you like, in which all linkages between the individuals listed are complete and no disagreements or omissions occur.
