Neil Armstrong’s most magnificent words in pictures

“As a boy, because I was born and raised in Ohio, about 60 miles north of Dayton, the legends of the Wrights have been in my memories as long as I can remember.”

“I think we’re going to the moon because it’s in the nature of the human being to face challenges. It’s by the nature of his deep inner soul – we’re required to do these things just as salmon swim upstream.”

“I believe every human has a finite number of heartbeats. I don’t intend to waste any of mine.”

“This is one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”

“It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth. I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth. I didn’t feel like a giant. I felt very, very small.”

“Mystery creates wonder and wonder is the basis of man’s desire to understand.”

“The important achievement of Apollo was demonstrating that humanity is not forever chained to this planet and our visions go rather further than that and our opportunities are unlimited.”

    In 1966 when Neil Armstrong walked on the Moon I was only 5 years old. The moment Apollo landed on the moon, my parents were so excited telling us what was going on. I felt so proud when my father shared this moment and said that mankind had achieved another milestone. Now, I’m 51 and still Neil’s name makes me proud of his achievement.

    Neil was one of a kind. I was just a little kid when I first heard his name and that he’d reached the moon. He risked his life for the sake of progress. They were all heros and I salute them!

    Neil Armstrong remained true to his core beliefs, and is a most, memorable role model for mankind. It is good to be alive at a time to appreciate this remarkable, humbling occurrence.

    I think Niel’s first words, after leaving the landing vehicle ,were ” One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” He inadvertently omitted the article “a” from man; meaning man and mankind became the same thing. Placing an “a” in from of man clears up any confusion with this expression.
