“in 1966 Valentina Tereshkova paid a visit to London, and I was asked to take the chair when she addressed a large audience in the Royal Festival Hall. Her English is fairly good, and she is utterly charming; as you may remember, she was the first woman to go into space. At that meeting, a very tough journalist from (I think) the Daily Mirror stood up and asked: ‘What qualities would you look for in a man going on a flight to the Moon?’ Valentina gave him a delightful smile. ‘Do you mean if I was going too?’ Collapse of journalist.”
Patrick Moore, Patrick Moore: The Autobiography

“Separate the people from the problem. Focus on interests rather than positions. Generate a variety of options before settling on an agreement; and Insist that the agreement be based on objective criteria.”
