Image Project 2 Update

After ruling out many possible candidates for my image poster I finally settled on Wilbur Wright, the older of the two wright brothers. Surprisingly enough Wilbur Wright was the one who initiated thoughts of starting an exploration in flight. Flying was not the only project the wright brothers had on their plate, they also had a fascination with bicycles. This fascination would lead the brothers to own a bicycle repair shop, which would become their primary source of income for flying.

Here are a few quotes from Wilbur Wright:

"It is possible to fly without motors, but not without knowledge and skill."

"The desire to fly is an idea handed down to us by our ancestors who...looked enviously on the birds soaring freely through space...on the infinite highway of the air."

"Men become wise just as they become rich, more by what they save than by what they receive."
