learning to fly (lesson one)

never a flicker of doubt. never.

(On Flying)

The first part is easy.

All it requires is simply the ability to throw yourself forward with all your weight, and the willingness not to mind that it's going to hurt.

Bob and float, float and bob.

Ignore all considerations of your weight and simply let yourself float higher.

Do not listen to what anybody says to you at this point because they are unlikely to say anything helpful.

They are most likely to say something along the lines of "Good God, you can't possibly be flying!"

It is vitally important not to believe them or they will suddenly be right.

From "Life The Universe and Everything" by Douglas Adams
