“It was a thrill to see first hand the best sailors and fastest boats. This is the next generation of innovative, competitive sailing. I’m looking forward to showcasing Rhode Island as the host city for the Americas’s Cup World Series on national television during the finals on Sunday.” —Rhode Island Governor Lincoln D Chafee (via americascup)
“It’s lack that gives us inspiration. It’s not fullness. Not ever having driven, I can write better about automobiles than the people who drive them. I have a distance here. … Space travel is another good example. I’m never going to go to Mars but I’ve helped inspire, thank goodness, the people who built the rockets and sent our photographic equipment off to Mars. So it’s always a lack that causes you to write that type of story.” —Ray Bradbury.
