For once you have tasted flight
you will walk the earth
with your eyes turned skywards,
for there you have been
and there you will long to return.
-- Leonardo da Vinci


In an airship,
one does not fly,
one does not drive.
Instead,
one travels in
a most beautiful way
that gives meaning to the word
journey.
-- Hugo Eckener
