“Because of your avidity, you will now have to seek again for your sword. And because of your pride, you will have to seek it among simple people. Because of your fascination with miracles, you will have to struggle to recapture what was about to be given to you so generously.”
~ Paulo Coehlo, The Pilgrimage

Today - 12th Apr - is Cosmonautics Day (also known as International Day of Human Space Flight) and the commemorates the first manned space flight by Yuri Gagarin. So here is quote from Yuri:

When he came back to earth he actually had to leave the capsule and descend by parachute...

A farmer and her granddaughter, who had seen the round capsule fall heavily to Earth, were greeted by the site of a strange, silver-suited figure. "I told them, don't be afraid, I am a Soviet like you, who has descended from space and I must find a telephone to call Moscow!"

Unfortunately although he recorded this later in his diary he didn't record their reactions (absolute terror would seem reasonable to me).

Now if only he had said "Take me your leader" :ROFLMAO:
