John Glenn (1921-Present)

“You know, … old folks can have dreams, too, as well as young folks, and then work toward them. And to have a dream like this come true for me is just a terrific experience.”

“We have an infinite amount to learn both from nature and from each other.”

“I don’t know what you could say about a day in which you have seen four beautiful sunsets.”

“To look out at this kind of creation out here and not believe in God is to me impossible, … It just strengthens my faith. I wish there were words to describe what it’s like.”

“The most important thing we can do is inspire young minds and to advance the kind of science, math and technology education that will help youngsters take us to the next phase of space travel.”

“There was a sense of community and community service then as well, … I think we lost that.”

“I just wish that every flight got the kind of attention we used to get in the Mercury days.”

“It’s beautiful up here.”

“I’m now doubled on my space time, and building up every second.”

“Discovery and this crew took us around and around, and that view is still tremendous, … To those whose prayers followed us around the world, our heartfelt thanks and appreciation.”

“We were sort of feeling our way and finding out what would happen to the human body in space.”

“I’m just a working stiff.”
