We want to explore. We’re curious people. Look back over history, people have put their lives at stake to go out and explore. We believe in what we’re doing. Now it’s time to go not yet mastered prophecy.

This is not the work of any one man or even a group of men. It is a historical process which mankind is carrying out in accordance with the natural laws of human development.
Saving the world with meals on wheels. Stop talking, brain thinking. Hush. Annihilate? No. No violence. I won’t stand for it. Not now, not ever, do you understand me?!
You hit me with a cricket bat. I’m nobody’s taxi service; I’m not gonna be there to catch you every time you feel like jumping out of a spaceship. It’s a fez. I wear a fez now. Fezes are cool. They’re not aliens, they’re Earth…liens! I’m nobody’s taxi service; I’m not gonna be there to catch you every time you feel like jumping out of a spaceship.
