7 810x506 - 12+ Wright Brothers Quotes About Hard Work You Should Follow

Do you know the Wright Brothers quotes which have been phenomenal? When Wilbur Wright and Orville Wright successfully made a flying machine work, people started to recognize them. It happened on December 17, 1903. However, far before the success, their effort was unexplainably significant. Maybe some people had called them crazy.

Whatever people said did not ruin their dream. A year before the success, they did experiments with gliders, aircraft, propellers, and many more. They believed that failing in any examinations is also a way to be successful in the future. Therefore, their quotes are interesting.

The Wright Brothers Quotes

“The desire to fly is an idea handed down to us by our ancestors who, in their grueling travels across trackless lands in prehistoric times, looked enviously on the birds soaring freely through space, at full speed, above all obstacles, on the infinite highway of the air.”
– Wilbur Wright

“More than anything else the sensation is one of perfect peace mingled with an excitement that strains every nerve to the utmost, if you can conceive of such a combination.”
– Wilbur Wright

“What is chiefly needed is skill rather than machinery.”
– Wilbur Wright

“It is possible to fly without motors, but not without knowledge and skill.”
– Wilbur Wright

“Do not let yourself be forced into doing anything before you are ready.”
– Wilbur Wright

“The exhilaration of flying is too keen, the pleasure too great, for it to be neglected as a sport.”
– Orville Wright

“If we all worked on the assumption that what is accepted as true is really true, there would be little hope of advance.”
– Orville Wright 

“We left Dayton, September 23, and arrived at our camp at Kill Devil Hill on Friday, the 25th.”
– Orville Wright 

“When the motor was completed and tested, we found that it would develop 16 horse power for a few seconds, but that the power rapidly dropped till, at the end of a minute, it was only 12 horse power.”

– Orville Wright 

“No data on air propellers was available, but we had always understood that it was not a difficult matter to secure an efficiency of 50% with marine propellers.”

– Orville Wright 

“Isn’t it astonishing that all these secrets have been preserved for so many years just so we could discover them!”

– Orville Wright 

“With all the knowledge and skill acquired in thousands of flights in the last ten years, I would hardly think today of making my first flight on a strange machine in a twenty-seven mile wind, even if I knew that the machine had already been flown and was safe.”

– Orville Wright 

“With all the knowledge and skill acquired in thousands of flights in the last ten years, I would hardly think today of making my first flight on a strange machine in a twenty-seven mile wind, even if I knew that the machine had already been flown and was safe.”

– Orville Wright 

“We were then satisfied that, with proper lubrication and better adjustments, a little more power could be expected. The completion of the motor according to drawing was, therefore, proceeded with at once.”

– Orville Wright 

“The course of the flight up and down was exceedingly erratic, partly due to the irregularity of the air, and partly to lack of experience in handling this machine. The control of the front rudder was difficult on account of its being balanced too near the center.”

– Orville Wright 

Knowledge and skills were what they acquired during countless trials and errors. Wilbur Wright and Orville Wright learned new things every day, things they finally used to fly the machine. They could not sleep at night, thinking about new experiments they were going to do. Maybe that was why they deserved to be the inventor of the flying machine.

The Wright Brothers quote proved how hard they work on their experiments. If you think you are working on something as hard as what the Wright Brothers pursued, you need to sit and read all the quotes. Believe that your effort will give you new insights every day. Do not be afraid; keep going.
