“We all have heard about ordinary people who find themselves in extraordinary situations. They act courageously or responsibly, and their efforts are described as if they opted to act that way on the spur of the moment... I believe many people in those situations actually have made descisions years before.”
Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, Highest Duty: My Search for What Really Matters

“Everyone’s reputation is made on a daily basis. There are little incremental things—worthwhile efforts, moments you were helpful to others—and after a lifetime, they can add up to something. You can feel as if you lived and it mattered.”
Chesley B. Sullenberger, Highest Duty: My Search for What Really Matters

“He knew the best way to learn responsibility was to be given the opportunity to be responsible, and at as young an age as possible.”
Chesley B. Sullenberger, Sully: My Search for What Really Matters
