AERONAUTICS
[ Also see Airplanes Aviation Balloons Flying Invention Navigation ]

He rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind.
      - Bible, Psalms (ch. XVIII, v. 10)

Let brisker youths their active nerves prepare
  Fit their light silken wings and skim the buxom air.
      - Richard Owen Cambridge,
        in the "Scriblerad"

For I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
  Saw the Vision of the world, and all the wonder that would be;
    Saw the heavens fill with commerce, argosies of magic sails,
      Pilots of the purple twilight, dropping down with costly bales;
        Heard the heavens fill with shouting, and there rain'd a ghastly dew
          From the nations' airy navies grappling in the central blue.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, Locksley Hall (117)

Darius was clearly of the opinion
  That the air is also man's dominion
    And that with paddle or fin or pinion,
      We soon or late shall navigate
        The azure as now we sail the sea.
      - John Townsend Trowbridge,
        Darius Green and his Flying Machine

"The birds can fly, an' why can't I?
  Must we give in," says he with a grin,
    "That the bluebird an' phoebe are smarter 'n we be?"
      - John Townsend Trowbridge,
        Darius Green and his Flying Machine

"Wal, I like flyin' well enough,"
  He said, "but the' ain't sich a thundern' sight
    O' fun in't when ye come to light."
      - John Townsend Trowbridge,
        Darius Green and his Flying Machine
