I wanted to set the standard, do the best job possible so that other people would be comfortable with African-Americans flying in space and African-Americans would be proud of being participants in the space program and… encourage others to do the same.

My desire was to make a contribution to the program.

It's your place in the world; it's your life. Go on and do all you can with it, and make it the life you want to live.

Don't let anyone rob you of your imagination, your creativity, or your curiosity.

There have been lots of other women who had the talent and ability before me.

Never be limited by other people's limited imaginations...If you adopt their attitudes, then the possibility won't exist because you'll have already shut it out ... You can hear other people's wisdom, but you've got to re-evaluate the world for yourself.

Sometimes people have already decided who you are without your story shining through.

I think this can be seen as an affirmation that we're moving ahead. And I hope it means that I'm just the first in a long line.

More women should demand to be involved. It's our right. This is one area where we can get in on the ground floor and possibly help to direct where space exploration will go in the future.

People may see astronauts and because the majority are white males, they tend to think it has nothing to do with them. But it does.

Pay attention to the world around you and then find the places where you think you’re skilled. Follow your bliss -- and bliss doesn’t mean it’s easy!

I know other astronauts share my feelings.... And we know the government is sitting on hard evidence of UFOs.

A saucer flew right over (us), put down three landing gears, and landed out on the dry lakebed. (The cameramen) went out there with their cameras toward the UFO.... I had chance to hold (the film) up to the window. Good close-up shots. There was no doubt in my mind that it was made someplace other than on this earth.

I have the normal desire, experienced by everybody who's ever flown an airplane with a certain amount of zoom capability, to go a little bit higher and a little bit faster.

Gordon Cooper

I live for that exhilarating moment when I'm in an airplane rushing down the runway and pull on the stick and feel lift under its wings. It's a magical feeling to climb toward the heavens, seeing objects and people on the ground grow smaller and more insignificant. You have left that world beneath you. You are inside the sky.
