Sonny, I'm old enough to have changed your nappies.
Piccard quotes
When you fly a balloon you donít file a flight plan; you go where the wind goes. You feel like part of the air. You almost feel like part of eternity, and you just float along.
There are many reasons, some of them so deep-seated emotionally as to be very difficult of expression. Possibly the simplest explanation is that we started along this road ... and I cannot stop until I have won.

Piccard Jeannette quotes
If we do not add something to the knowledge of cosmic rays by our trip to the stratosphere this summer, we had better not go. We had better stay on the ground, be hewers of wood and drawers of water.
