Arthur C. Clarke, 90

March 19, 2008 at 6:52 am 1 comment

I know I focus a lot on aviation – and really Mr. Clarke’s death at the age of 90 is related.  Arthur C. Clarke was one of the first authors I really got hooked on.  I was a sci-fi geek at age 12 and I read his popular books, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Childhood’s End, Rendezvous with Rama and others, but strangely the book I remember most from him was a book called Glide Path.  It was a WWII aviation novel. I don’t remember much of the story anymore, so I think I’ll have to read it again now.  Blue skies Mr. Clarke – we’ll miss your writing.

    Kind of a post-script – I just remember the book made an impression on me, and it has stuck with me through the years. Strange how you remember something making an impression, but not remembering exactly why….

"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first." Mark Twain

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on:
