I am alone now, truly alone, and absolutely isolated from any known life. I am it. If a count were taken, the score would be three billion plus two over on the other side of the moon, and one plus God knows what on this side.

I am also planning to leave a lot of things undone. Part of life's mystery depends on future possibilities, and mystery is an elusive quality which evaporates when sampled frequently, to be followed by boredom.

If we die, we want people to accept it. We are in a risky business, and we hope that if anything happens to us it will not delay the program. The conquest of space is worth the risk of life.

How do you expect to get us to the Moon if you people can't even hook us up with a ground station?

There is a clarity, a brilliance to space that simply doesn't exist on earth, even on a cloudless summer's day in the Rockies, and nowhere else can you realize so fully the majesty of our Earth and be so awed at the thought that it's only one of untold thousands of planets.

If we die, do not mourn for us. This is a risky business we're in, and we accept those risks. The space program is too valuable to this country to be halted for too long if a disaster should ever happen.

Gus Grissom

Do good work.

We got to the moon on Christmas Eve 1968, at the end of a poor year for this country.

Be thankful for problems. If they were less difficult, someone with less ability might have your job.

We do not realize what we have on Earth until we leave it.

The moon is essentially gray, no color; looks like plaster of Paris or sort of a grayish beach sand.

People say, 'Did you violate Heaven?' Well, God is down here, too. If you believe in God, you believe in God here as well as 240,000 miles away.

Jim Lovell

I take the NASA physical every year.
