"From the time we were little children my brother Orville and myself lived together, played together, worked together, and in fact, thought together. We usually owned all of our toys in common, talked over our thoughts and aspirations so that nearly everything that was done in our lives has been the result of conversations, suggestions and discussions between us."
Wilbur Wright and his younger brother Orville were ordinary
boys with ordinary toys. Somehow, they became extraordinary
men with extraordinary machines.
The story of their success can inspire all young dreamers to become the inventors of the future.
