"In 1960 they started a space race. By 1969 we were on the moon. Now, in that short period of time, look what we accomplished. And in my opinion, I believe that if some other country wanted to go to the moon and live there, we’d get in a war with them because we think the moon is ours. Well, it’s not. Just like it’s not your right to tell me whether or not I can launch into space. […] I know we have laws. We got all kind of laws. We got more laws to tell us what we can’t do than anything else. We got laws to protect us from other laws. […] You see, when I was a kid, they used to tell me that I could be anything I wanted to be. No matter what. And maybe I am insane, I don’t know, but I still believe that. I believe it with all my heart. Somewhere along the line we stopped believing that we could do anything. And if we don’t have our dreams, we have nothing."
Charles Farmer (Billy Bob Thornton), ‘The Astronaut Farmer’
