If you can walk away from a landing, it's a good landing. If you use the airplane the next day, it's an outstanding landing.
You don't concentrate on risks. You concentrate on results. No risk is too great to prevent the necessary job from getting done.
There's no such thing as a natural-born pilot.
If you want to grow old as a pilot, you've got to know when to push it, and when to back off.
Never wait for trouble.
