A man either lives life as it happens to him, meets it head-on and licks it, or he turns his back on it and starts to wither away.

This B-17 met a head-on attack by three Focke Wulf Fw 190 fighters. The gunners exploded two of them, and the top turret poured a stream of shells into the cockpit of the third. With a dead man at the controls, the fighter screamed in, and at a closing speed of 550 miles per hour smashed head-on into the number-three engine.Martin Caidin, in his book Black Thursday (1960)
