Billy Sunday, Billy Sunday, the Man and His Message: With His Own Words Which Have Won Thousands for Christ

Henry Ford
“When Henry Ford decided to produce his famous V-8 motor, he chose to build an engine with the entire eight cylinders cast in one block, and instructed his engineers to produce a design for the engine. The design was placed on paper, but the engineers agreed, to a man, that it was simply impossible to cast an eight-cylinder engine-block in one piece.

Ford replied,''Produce it anyway.”
Henry Ford

Sam Shepard

Sam Shepard, Cruising Paradise

Jeremy Clarkson
“[A Bugatti Veyron is] quite the most stunning piece of automotive engineering ever created....At a stroke then, the Veyron has rendered everything I’ve ever said about any other car obsolete. It’s rewritten the rule book, moved the goalposts and in the process, given Mother Nature a bloody nose.”
Jeremy Clarkson

J.G. Ballard

J.G. Ballard
“She had originally agreed to appear naked, but on seeing the cars informed me that she would only appear topless—an interesting logic was at work there.”
James Graham Ballard, The Atrocity Exhibition

Lisi Harrison
“It was becoming more and more evident that Salem was a town that celebrated individuality, a real live-and-let-live kind of place. Melody felt a gut punch of regret. Her old nose would have fit in here.
"Look!" She pointed at the multicolored car whizzing by. Its black door were from a Mercedes coupe, the white hood from a BMW; the silver trunk was Jaguar, the red convertible top was Lexus, the whitewall tires were Bentley, the sound system was Bose, and the music was classical. A hood ornament from each model dangled from the rear view mirror. Its license plate appropriately read MUTT.
"That car looks like a moving Benton ad."
"Or a pileup on Rodeo drive." Candace snapped a picture with her iPhone and e-mailed to her friends back home. They responded instantly with a shot of what they were doing. It must have involved the mall because Candace picked up her pace and began asking anyone under the age of fifty where the cool people hung out.”
Lisi Harrison, Monster High

“We’re far from having too much horsepower…[m]y definition of too much horsepower is when all four wheels are spinning in every gear.”

J.M.G. Le Clézio
“I wanted to write an adventure story, not, it's true, I really did. I shall have failed, that's all. Adventures bore me. I have no idea how to talk about countries, how to make people wish they had been there. I am not a good travelling salesman. Countries? Where are they , whatever became of them.
When I was twelve I dreamed of Hongkong. That tedious, commonplace little provincial town! Shops sprouting from every nook and cranny! The Chinese junks pictured on the lids of chocolate boxes used to fascinate me. Junks: sort of chopped-off barges, where the housewives do all their cooking and washing on deck. They even have television. As for the Niagara Falls: water, nothing but water! A dam is more interesting; at least one can occasionally see a big crack at its base, and hope for some excitement.
When one travels, one sees nothing but hotels. Squalid rooms, with iron bedsteads, and a picture of some kind hanging on the wall from a rusty nail, a coloured print of London Bridge or the Eiffel Tower.
One also sees trains, lots of trains, and airports that look like restaurants, and restaurants that look like morgues. All the ports in the world are hemmed in by oil slicks and shabby customs buildings. In the streets of the towns, people keep to the sidewalks, cars stop at red lights. If only one occasionally arrived in a country where women are the colour of steel and men wear owls on their heads. But no, they are sensible, they all have black ties, partings to one side, brassières and stiletto heels. In all the restaurants, when one has finished eating one calls over the individual who has been prowling among the tables, and pays him with a promissory note. There are cigarettes everywhere! There are airplanes and automobiles everywhere.”
J.M.G. Le Clézio, The Book of Flights

V.J. Smith
“You might think that the most stolen vehicles are expensive sports vehicles or multipurpose passenger vehicles, but that's not always the case”
V.J. Smith

“A car is one of the most interesting inventions, but driving is one of the most boring activities.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Alaa Al Aswany
“As an Egyptian woman hangs out the wash, she is as alluring as a belly dancer in whose dance the seduction is frank and direct, a sort of invitation to sex. When a woman is hanging out the wash, her appeal is subdued and coy. The woman moves as if unaware of the excitement she arouses in any man watching her. Look. When the woman puts the clothes peg in her mouth and then takes it in her two fingers to peg the wash on the line, the use of the peg is loaded with strong, sensual overtones.”
Alaa Al Aswany

“I'm not an expert of cars but I know how they make me feel.”
Gwen Ro

Wallace Stegner
“The driver of an automobile on a lonely road is a set of perceptions mounted in the forehead of a mechanical monster.”

Georg Kaiser
“Das Fahrrad ist die abenteuerlichste Erfindung des menschlichen Geistes. Wie jeder großartige Einfall ist er sofort vollkommen da und duldet keine Verfeinerungen. [...] Längst bin ich zu der Überzeugung gekommen, daß der Menschheit das Fahrrad geschenkt ist als Äquivalent für alle Plagen der Technik. Erbarmungsvoll ist ihr aus dem technischen Kollektiv — da es kein seelisches gibt — ein Weg in die Isoliertheit geöffnet. Das Fahrrad inthronisiert die Privatperson. Es macht
sie unabhängig von Hilfsmitteln. Der
Radfahrer tritt zu — und distanziert sich.[...]
Sein Antipode ist der Automobilist.
Das Wesen mit der Kuppelung.
An den Motor, an die öffentliche Fahrrinne, an die Tankstelle. Vor allen Dingen : er wird
gefahren — er fährt nicht. [...]
Der Mensch muß viel erfahren haben, um klug zu werden. Da wir die Technik erleiden mußten, sind wir zweifellos zur größten Weisheit berufen. Nämlich: nichts für sich tun zu lassen, sondern alles selbst zu tun. [...] Das Wandern ist keine Lust, das Automobilfahren ist ein Laster. Zwischen
Lustlosigkeit und Laster muß es liegen. Was? Das Menschenwürdige
