A single beautiful moment

"Dear friends, known and unknown to me, my dear compatriots, and all the people of the world:

In the next few minutes a mighty spaceship will carry me off into the distant spaces of the universe.

What can I say to you during these last few minutes before the start? All my life now appears as a single beautiful moment to me. All I have done and lived for has been done and lived for this moment."

Yuri Gagarin, April 12, 1961
