It incorporates both fiction and non-fiction (NASA) in one remarkable story. To be an astronaut is a dream for many military pilots, including mine.(less)

The Daily Stoic by Ryan Holiday
“Seneca put it best when he said, “Life is long if you know how to use it.” Sadly, most people don’t—they waste the life they’ve been given. Only when it is too late do they try to compensate for that waste by vainly hoping to put more time on the clock. Use today. Use every day. Make yourself satisfied with what you have been given.”
Ryan Holiday
The Daily Stoic by Ryan Holiday
“Some things are in our control, while others are not. We control our opinion, choice, desire, aversion, and, in a word, everything of our own doing. We don’t control our body, property, reputation, position, and, in a word, everything not of our own doing. Even more, the things in our control are by nature free, unhindered, and unobstructed, while those not in our control are weak, slavish, can be hindered, and are not our own.” —EPICTETUS, ENCHIRIDION, 1.1–2”

“45 Bistro Restaurant, East Broughton Street, Savannah, Georgia The Gulfstream Corporate Weekly Dinner was being held at 45 Bistro this week, and the usual gang from Customer Service and Marketing always hosted a splendid meal.  Aircrew from all over the world flew into Savannah, Georgia for semi-annual training, as did new owners, technicians, and anyone else affiliated with Gulfstream for the week.  It was their special night out, all expenses paid, to show their appreciation for the business they gave Gulfstream. ”

“Emily immediately saw a woman’s purse on the table, then saw the bed was messed up and slept in, as well. Her emotions were now off the charts, and the ground on which she was standing on fell out. No, Ford, no, she thought to herself.

They both opened the bathroom door.

“Aw, man! Dude! Call 911!” Mark said loudly, as Emily gasped.”
Lawrence A. Colby, The Black Scorpion Pilot

“Zeke, having plenty of wisdom and seeing just about everything through the years, was pretty crusty among the junior pilots. His legendary tough attitude in the face of rules made the young guys laugh. Hard. Often seen in the hangar on the catwalk checking out the mechanics turning wrenches, he’d have a cigarette in his mouth in an area full of fuel. Zeke knew the flashpoint was so high that he’d never start a fire, so he routinely ignored the “No Smoking” signs.”
Lawrence A. Colby, The Black Scorpion Pilot

“Hush.  I just read a report from the 82nd Reconnaissance Squadron from Kadena.  A RIVET JOINT crew that was doing collection on China a few hours ago, flying off North Korea over the water.  They intercepted a Chinese flight crew putting down their gear.”      “So what?” exclaimed Robert.”
Lawrence Colby, The Devil Dragon Pilot

“The doctor and nurse met in the hallway before going to the nurse’s station to verify some of the results on the computer screen.  The doctor wanted to see the results of the blood work and CAT scan to see what they had.  His gut was telling him the diagnosis, nearly screaming what it was, but he needed to verify and line up the facts first.       “Let me see his blood work,” the doctor told the nurse. ”
