Aerial Quotations

Neither the Army nor the Navy is of any protection, or very little protection, against aerial raids.
Alexander Graham Bell

My wife and I had decided not to let anybody take pictures of our home because it was just the last place on earth we had that was unscathed. But people have climbed over the fence; they've taken aerial shots. They've gotten my address and put it on the Internet.

Yann Arthus-Bertrand
