Launch Quotes

Here, we’ve compiled a list of the best Launch Quotes from famous authors such as Henry Spencer, Ibrahim Babangida, Ksenia Sobchak, Grant Imahara, Michael Hayden. Let’s look at these pieces of wisdom. We definitely have something to learn from them!

Historically, the U.S.’s big launchers fly seldom enough that their costs are dominated by annual upkeep of facilities and staff, not by the actual cost of each launch. The expensive part is maintaining the launch capability, not actually conducting launches.
Henry Spencer
With each new book, the march of our national history takes a step forward. When one is present at a book launch, one is bearing witness to the birth of a new body of ideas, to the coming into being of another testimony of history.
Ibrahim Babangida
I have no political weight, and I haven’t earned the right to launch some kind of political programme or stand as a candidate.

Drones can be a huge advantage to agencies fighting natural disasters. They can launch immediately, gather vital data about an emergency situation, and help efficiently relay that information to all agencies involved, all without putting further lives at risk.

When the intelligence is making a policymaker too happy, he ought to challenge it, and even if he doesn’t, the intelligence briefer needs to launch a red team against his own conclusions to see if he can hold his ground.

Juan Felipe Herrera
The IronClad is faster than most thumb drives but far slower than a standard hard drive. Boot up, application launch and other Windows operations feel sluggish, though still usable.
Barton Gellman
Like yes, I was part of a launch of an entire cable television network and we all worked so hard getting prepared for it and rehearsed so many times.
Maria Taylor
To truly launch a great product, you need partners. Channel and marketing partners share in your success and share in the costs of reaching your target audience.

Richard Hayne
The truth is, every single rocket launch off of planet Earth is risky.
John M. Grunsfeld
Games take years to make, and it’s important that when we launch, it can’t just be a great launch catalog and then a desert for a really long time. To be honest, for a lot of developers, they’d rather not be competing at launch with all this other software.
Palmer Luckey
I think its very easy to try to launch things too quickly and do things too quickly and not pay attention to the details along the way.
Baiju Bhatt
In 1975, I was called to active duty in the Air Force, studying U.S. space launches that used nuclear power. I felt it was a big deal to be involved in such an important project – we were providing technical support for launch recommendations that ultimately went to the president.
Lonnie Johnson
What made the days leading up to the iPhone launch even crazier was that Apple had pulled off the greatest disappearing act in tech promotion history. In January 2007, Jobs announced the long-awaited iPhone. But somewhere that winter, the iPhone vanished.
Steven Levy
When you launch a game, you really don’t know how many people are going to show up.
Michael Morhaime
I founded a launch company called International Microspace when I graduated medical school in 1989. We were trying to build a microsatellite launcher.

Annie Leibovitz

Giorgio Moroder
One of the hardest things to do when you launch a channel is find a voice.
David Zaslav
We were ready to launch Barry White, but the record company wouldn’t put it out. Said it wouldn’t sell.
Barry White
If your payloads cost hundreds of millions of dollars, they actually cost more than the launch. It puts a lot of pressure on the launch vehicle not to change, to be very stable. Reliability becomes much more important than the cost. It’s hard to get off of that equilibrium.
Jeff Bezos
I kept trying, proposing, pushing… If you want to succeed, you cannot leave work half done, and unfortunately, many things were left half done. The choice was made not to launch a second wave of economic reforms that I was proposing.
Emmanuel Macron
So I’ll set a cycle in motion and pop it into record and I’ll lay down a drum pattern, a bass line, a keyboard and guitar part, and once the groove is going I launch into the song and sing my song over the top.
Thomas Dolby
Many for whom the stage has been the launch pad to cinema have forgotten their roots. I don’t intend to, ever.
Y. G. Mahendran
It’s like this: The time between having an idea and its public launch is measured in days not months, weeks not years.
Tim Bray
When you’re getting ready to launch into space, you’re sitting on a big explosion waiting to happen.
Sally Ride
Believe it or not, the first spark for everything I’ve done today came down to me meeting one person in college who changed my life.

Elliott Bisnow
See, I didn’t have a big and huge launch as a star-kid would have.

Catherine Cortez-Masto
I’m helping launch the new Milky Way Chocolate Ice Cream Bar. I play an astrophysicist on television, and the name of the bar is Milky Way, so put two and two together, and here I am.
Kunal Nayyar
After the launch of Bumble Date, users were starting to connect as friends, so we decided to launch BFF. When I was using BFF, I matched with someone who I then went on to hire at Bumble HQ. From there, I thought, why not create a platform for women to build business connections and advance their careers.
Whitney Wolfe Herd
My favorite experience, in general, probably was the ‘Little Shop’ experience, which probably was terrifying, frustrating, and exhilarating and amazing, but because it was the first, that was the one where I watched the show just launch itself for the first time and thought, ‘Oh my God, I’m going to have a career.’
Alan Menken
My goal is to be a household name, and when I do that, I want to help other girls become models, and maybe even launch a fashion line with my mom, like Beyonce did with her mother. My mom has such a good eye, and it’s always been a dream of hers.
Chanel Iman
If you want to release your own single, there cannot be a better launch than going to Los Angeles and collaborating with a renowned artist.
Parineeti Chopra
Celebrities have been using MySpace since the site’s launch and it’s a natural extension for us to now offer them an aggregated channel where they can be in control of their own image.
Tom Anderson
Beginning with the launch of targeted interventions, including through the tax return process, we will look to find simple and efficient ways in which we can support people to save.
David Gauke

Scooter Braun
What’s different is with every successive year, as we launch a thousand plus features and services, we just have the capabilities to make it easier for the rest of the market to use us.
Andy Jassy
Consumer habits are key to understanding how to launch a product.
Charles Duhigg
Since most startups operate at a break-neck pace, with a concept to prove or a product to launch within a rapidly shortening runway of financing, company culture often gets shoved aside. This is a big, big mistake: Nobody serious about their business should put culture in the corner.
Leah Busque
When I started my company, many people said I shouldn’t launch it as a retail concept because it was too big a risk. They told me to launch as a wholesaler to test the waters – because that was the traditional way.
Tory Burch
When Kennedy said, ‘Let’s go to the moon,’ we didn’t yet have a vehicle that wouldn’t kill you on launch. He said we’ll land a man on the moon in eight years and bring him back. That was an audacious goal to put forth in front of the American people.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
I’ve been aware of the incredible work that The Survivors Trust do for a while now and have wanted to find a way to launch a working relationship with them, to help raise money to fund all the crucial support they provide for survivors.
Emma Corrin
HootSuite never had a big launch. We were lucky to even have office space.
Ryan Holmes
I’m Chinese-American, of course, and so it’s very interesting to see China actually launch their own astronauts, becoming the third nation, following the United States and Russia, to do so.
Leroy Chiao
In 2010 – after raising capital to launch Forerunner Ventures – we aimed to invest in companies targeting digitally savvy customers looking to be delighted by experiences and founded by visionary leaders committed to leveraging data and quantifying the results.
Kirsten Green

James Costos
Whatever initiatives we launch, we must always put the interests of Singaporeans and Singapore first.
Tony Tan
I want to launch my own line of C-strings and even be a brand ambassador for them. For that, I wouldn’t mind getting butt implants done from Dubai.
Rakhi Sawant
What’s great about ‘Spy Hunter’ is that we have an amazing title, an awesome car, and a great theme song, and we can use that to launch a new franchise that hopefully will compete with the other ones but just be kind of the more fun, video game version of a spy movie.
Ruben Fleischer
I’ve always wanted to hit that, like, ’13 Going on 30;’ ‘Failure to Launch,’ Matthew McConaughey; ‘What Happens in Vegas,’ Cameron Diaz, Ashton Kutcher’ wave.
Noah Centineo
We’ll look at the japanese launch as a model and aspire to have things go as well as they did over there.
Trip Hawkins
Building and launching rockets has been a lifelong hobby that my son and I share. We regularly travel to Nevada’s Black Rock Desert to launch rockets.
Steve Jurvetson
There’s always apprehension whenever I launch anything, it seems. When I launch a tour, people are always, ‘Oooh, is this gonna work?’ And when I launch an album: ‘Ooh, is this gonna work?’ Or a new video. ‘Really?’ It’s always like that – but I’ve always acted on the impulse that I have nothing to lose.
I didn’t launch the website with any goals in mind, to be honest. I didn’t know that it would have been anything other than a digital portfolio once I graduated college.
Leandra Medine
Google views Facebook as a threat to its business and has been trying to launch a social-networking service to compete with it.

Walter Cronkite
It is important to launch a mass and society-wide struggle to drastically increase the production of consumer goods.
Kim Jong-un
It hadn’t really percolated through my brain that I was going to see real, live TV from the surface of the Moon, and boy, oh, boy, had that Saturn V launch been exciting! And then, there it was – late at night, sitting up, watching, and there was Neil Armstrong actually standing on the surface of the Moon.
David Weber
I’ve helped launch 49 careers – those that have been in PiL. To me, they are my babies; whatever they get up to, they know I love them. They’ve been living in my pockets, and they should show more gratitude.
John Lydon
Now, when we first started, I would be playing something good and then feel like I wasn’t doing the right thing and launch into some idiotic cliche. Luckily for me, Bobby was patient.
Charlie Hunter
As anyone who has covered the company for any length of time knows, Yahoo’s record on major decision-making has been akin to a hippie commune – a lot of wrangling internally in a culture where everyone seems to have a voice and a reticence to push the button to launch.
Kara Swisher
George Bush didn’t campaign on, ‘If you elect me, I’m going to be a great president to confront terrorism and launch a war in the Middle East’ because nobody was thinking about it in the year 2000. But it became the defining issue of his presidency.
Mike Huckabee
I am very excited about the launch of my new collection with Superga UK. I really enjoyed creating for the brand and adding a piece of myself into the designs. I hope that everyone loves them as much as I enjoyed making them.
Suki Waterhouse
In 1985, the government decided to launch the first satellite. We had huge discussions then that nobody would need that kind of satellite or that it could fall from the sky.
Etienne Schneider
I feel like – like Netflix is great if you’ve got a project ready to launch itself into the world rapidly.

LaGuardia is jammed into just 680 urban acres; taxiways are tight; runways intersect; you can’t launch a departure until the arrival on the other runway crosses the threshold or else the airplanes will … collide.
Jeanne Marie Laskas
In 2016, you no longer have to be in Silicon Valley to launch a successful startup. Colorado is home to many.

Robin Leach
I wish we could launch a ground-breaking competition that motivates kids to invent new ideas in sustainable living.
Edward Burtynsky
You can believe or you can doubt yourself. It’s the difference between a gap being one metre late that you’re gonna launch, then it’s three seconds and you’re sat on the wheel and you’re about to lose.
Mark Cavendish
Everything is always on the table. I think it’s one of the things that’s made ‘Arrow’ special. But we also all collectively feel like ‘The Flash’ needs to stand on its own two feet, now that it’s gotten its launch from ‘Arrow.’
Marc Guggenheim
I wanted to get into films, and my parents were against it. I convinced my mom, and finally she convinced my dad. My dad then felt, who best to launch his son than him? So he launched me, and here I am.
I thought ‘The Well’ was going to launch my career, but nothing happened.
Maidie Norman
Genealogy is among the fastest-growing leisure pursuits in the U.K. Indeed, the urge to uncover the truth about our ancestors has proved so compelling that, when the 1901 census first went online, the website crashed after a million people logged on within hours of its launch.
Rory Bremner
Once you get into space, you can really unleash a lot of creativity, but the launch itself? I have been through all of the creative ways, and believe me, chemical rockets are the best.
Jeff Bezos
Supplying fuel for a Mars expedition from the lunar surface is often suggested, but it’s hard to make it pay off – Moon bases are expensive, and just buying more rockets to launch fuel from Earth is relatively cheap.
Henry Spencer
I wanted to take some time before I launch my men’s line so it took a little while before I launched it.
Nandita Mahtani
The best advice for a first time CEO is make sure you have built a strong technical founding team, and then launch!
Michael Seibel
My job, originally, was to write blog posts for their ‘HubSpot’ blog. They have a business model built on content. Then I was writing e-books for them, and after I came back from L.A., they had this new plan to launch a podcast.
Daniel Lyons
I don’t think a wise thing at this moment is for Israel to launch a military attack on Iran.
William Hague
With a game, you’re only one part of a team, and what emerges at launch is very much the culmination of the whole team’s efforts. You can be proud of playing your part, but it doesn’t ever belong to you.
Richard K. Morgan
Al Qaeda is not the organization now that it was before. It is under stress organizationally. Its leadership spends more time trying to figure out how to keep from getting caught than they do trying to launch operations.
Cofer Black
There’s no formula for success in Bollywood, whether you are sharing screen space or getting the ultimate launch.
Kubra Sait
We launch when we’re kind of in the same orbit that they are in terms of being matched up in inclination in space, and we’re just in a little different altitude.
Linda M. Godwin
‘Parenthood’ is a story about people’s lives – the title helps. Very early on during the show’s launch, the title was something familiar for the audience. It grabbed people’s interest.
Jason Katims
The excitement really didn’t start to build until the trailer – which was carrying me, with a space suit with ventilation and all that sort of stuff – pulled up to the launch pad.
Alan Shepard
Unlike any other star kid, I didn’t have any A-grade launch. I just did whatever came my way.
Riya Sen
You will launch many projects, but have time to finish only a few. So think, plan, develop, launch and tap good people to be responsible. Give them authority and hold them accountable. Trying to do too much yourself creates a bottleneck.
Donald Rumsfeld
My son Mahadevan recently expressed his interest in acting. As a father, I can only provide him the platform, and that’s precisely what I’m trying to do by turning producer to launch my son.
Delhi Ganesh
I think we can launch – successfully, high quality – around 20 original scripted shows a year, which means every 2 1/2 to three weeks you’re launching a new season or a new show on Netflix meant to be for really diverse tastes all around the world.
Ted Sarandos
In my experience, fledgling entrepreneurs focus way too much on the money – you can get most things done and figure out a lot without spending much. That said, most businesses require money to launch and get off the ground.
Andrew Yang
These subsidies from four European governments, which include aircraft launch assistance, capital injections, debt forgiveness, have enabled Airbus to develop and range market airliners well below cost.
Norm Dicks
Prior to inventing the Geyser Tube toy, dropping a stack of Mentos into a bottle of soda was not always an easy task. The Geyser Tube makes it easy to get a perfect launch every time at heights of 30 feet or more. Tell me… who doesn’t like to see soda shooting 30 feet into the air, all in the name of science?
Steve Spangler
So most astronauts getting ready to lift off are excited and very anxious and worried about that explosion – because if something goes wrong in the first seconds of launch, there’s not very much you can do.
Sally Ride
I wanted to launch ‘Youngblood’ with an exclusive relationship with ComiXology because I believe that they can provide the extra push that a launch like this requires.
Rob Liefeld
I have no direct knowledge of this, but I suspect that Apple will launch a living room product that redefines people’s expectations really strongly, and the notion of a separate console platform will disappear concurrent with Apple’s announcement.
Gabe Newell
To allow public access to orbit, we would need breakthroughs that would lower the cost by a lot more than an order of magnitude and increase safety by a factor of 100 as compared to every launch system used since the first manned space flight. I think airborne launch will be a significant part of the safety solution.
Burt Rutan
When I was 6, a family friend gave me E.L. Konigsburg’s ‘A Proud Taste for Scarlet and Miniver’ and launched me on a full-blown Eleanor obsession. I wanted to ride off on Crusade, to launch a thousand troubadour songs, to marry a king – and then jilt him and marry another.
Lauren Willig
When the book is over, I think of innovative marketing ways to reach to a larger audience. I think wine and cheese book launch parties are a waste.
Amish Tripathi
I think whether it’s a good idea or not to take the startup plunge comes down to the responsibilities of the individual. If you have a family to care for or a huge mortgage payment, then quitting your steady day job to launch a startup probably isn’t the best decision to make.
Chieh Huang
My favorite change is taking traction control away and launch control, because my starts are pretty good, I think, and I make always some places up in the start and I think that will be great if that comes back to the driver’s hand.
Jos Verstappen
Product development is emotional for me! It’s really important as a brand that we feel that our products are going to be life-changing for everyone who buys them. We won’t ever launch something we don’t feel strongly about.
Huda Kattan
One thing I learned from all my years in business is you really have to work with the experts: you can launch something yourself, but unless you have the expertise and the marketing strategies and machinery behind you, you’ll never be successful.
John Rocha
I decided to launch a fragrance because Aeropostale approached me about creating one, and it’s something that I kind of always wanted to do but didn’t think it would actually happen. So when I heard I had the opportunity to create my own perfume, I got super excited.
Bethany Mota
I partnered with AstraZeneca to help launch the ‘Mom Nose Best’ campaign, where I provide tips for flu season.
Tia Mowry
The launch of the report coincides with the initiation by WHO of the global strategy for the prevention and control of osteoporosis, and I think a good partnership could be established in our common efforts to prevent osteoporosis.
Gro Harlem Brundtland
I think that making a movie is not just making the movie – it is also about having thoughtful ideas and embracing all the aspects of its launch.
Luca Guadagnino
Because it flew without a pilot, the D-21 was designed to fly over territory where the U.S. was denied access and to take photographs of weapons facilities from altitudes as low as 1,500 feet. But the project was canceled on July 30, 1966, after a fatal accident at sea during the drone’s first official launch.
Annie Jacobsen
The only privilege star kids enjoy is a good launch. That, of course, is important.
Ayushmann Khurrana
I look for two things when I am about to launch into a book. First, there has to be a dramatic arc to the story itself that will carry me, and the reader, from beginning to end. Second, the story has to weave through larger themes that can illuminate the world of the subject.
David Maraniss
Even though I didn’t realize that I was about to launch into a two-year struggle, a deep and compelling sense told me that I had to walk the path I’d chosen – or rather, the path that seemed to have chosen me.
Julia Butterfly Hill
At the end of almost every video in my YouTube catalog since Patreon’s launch, I talk about my work at the company.
Jack Conte
I met David Beckham – now he was a good one to tell my mates about. I was at the launch of his new fragrance. I introduced myself but he said he knew who I was and knew my songs.
Thomas Grennan
I don’t go along with going to Moon first to build a launch pad to go to Mars. We should go to Mars from Earth orbit. We have already been to the Moon; we’ve already practiced.
Wally Schirra
You’ll never see me at the launch of the new PlayStation or some club. For me, the fun stuff is being able to get my mom tickets to ‘Dancing With the Stars’ – she loves Mario Lopez.
America Ferrera
Whether you aim to lose 20 pounds or you want to launch your own business, mental strength is the key to long-term success. After all, you need fierce determination and tenacity to reach your greatest potential.
Amy Morin
I thought I was prepared for space, and it still absolutely defied every expectation and dream. It is an incredible thing to put yourself on a rocket and launch off the planet. It is an amazing thing to see the planet from space. This blue sphere is almost indescribably beautiful.
Kathleen Rubins
You need propellants to accelerate toward Mars, then to decelerate at Mars, again to re-accelerate from Mars to Earth, and finally to decelerate back at Earth. Accordingly, the mass of these required propellants, in short, drives our need for innovative launch vehicles.
Buzz Aldrin
They used to time our elementary fire drills so we could watch the launches. I thought that was normal. I thought every kid watched every NASA launch.
Allison Schroeder
As we begin to have landings on the moon, we can alternate those with vertical launch of similar crew modules on similar launch vehicles for vertical-launch tourism in space, if you want to call it that… adventure travel.
Buzz Aldrin
George W. Bush and Tony Blair had to convince the world that Saddam Hussein represented an imminent threat. Tony Blair lied when he claimed that Iraq could launch a chemical or biological attack within 45 minutes.
Bianca Jagger
My grandma, Edith, was one of the greatest inspirations in my life, both personally and professionally. She was an incredibly talented artist who shared her creativity with me from a young age and was a driving force in the launch of my jewelry line.
Jennifer Meyer
If we launch a new product, we have to time it right. It’s not about how soon you can do it but how well we can do it.
Bhavish Aggarwal
In 2000, just before the first dot-com bubble burst, it cost a whopping $5 million to launch a tech startup.
Peter Diamandis
In terms of film festivals, Cannes is the greatest launch pad.
Hirokazu Kore-eda
Do we really need these big, gigantic, heavy rockets? What if we launch a rocket that’s empty, and its sole purpose is to act as a source of fuel on the Moon? Who should build that? Well, I think the U.S. should build that.
Buzz Aldrin
Yes, iD is a machine vision and sensor browser for the physical world. That’s what we have been working on with Coca-Cola, Verizon, Bank of America and Disney to launch content when an image is recognised.
Patrick Soon-Shiong
I hope that vigorous space exploration continues and that humankind will have a space station that resides between Earth and the moon. Outside the gravitational field of Earth, we could launch robotic spacecraft to other destinations in our solar system.
Debra Fischer
When I decided to launch my first knitwear line, it was because I saw a void in the basics category. The editors were always looking for cool, fashion-forward tees and sweaters. So that’s where I started.
Alexander Wang
I began as a model, but that did not really hold my interest for too long! I believe I stood out from the parade of models trying to make it in Hollywood, which helped launch my career beyond the one-night-stand horror movie.
Natasha Henstridge
I think it’s good to have competition. Now we have a third country that can launch astronauts, so it’s good for all of us. It makes us a little bit more competitive and wanting to be the leader.
Leroy Chiao
Cadila, India’s sixth-largest drugmaker by sales, spent $250 million developing Lipaglyn, a new chemical entity or new discovery, and aims to spend another $150 million to $200 million to launch the drug outside India.
Pankaj Patel
Technologically, it is not hard to launch an object into space. Emotionally, it has been difficult.
Trevor Paglen
I always thought that if I ever make my Bollywood debut it should be with a film which has a good story, which has emotions, romance. ‘Bittoo Boss’ is all that I ever dreamt of and is the perfect launch pad for me.
Pulkit Samrat
Carter’s hopes died when the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan and he ended up having to reverse policy and launch the military buildup that Reagan continued. Mr. Obama would be forced back into a war on terror if terrorist groups pull off enough damaging or frightening attacks to force this issue to the fore.
Walter Russell Mead
On the aircraft carrier under my command, where the average age of sailors was 19 and a half, you could see accountability in action at all times. You especially saw it when an order was given that a plane about to launch suddenly must be switched out for another and kept on board.
Joe Sestak
As of 2011, it cost about $5,000 to launch a tech startup.
Peter Diamandis
We will not allow any group to use our soil to launch a terror attack against any other country. Bangladesh is no longer an exporter of terrorism, nor is it a silk route for arms smuggling as it once was.
Sheikh Hasina
What I intend to do is to launch a batting academy. I have been a batsman throughout my life, and I can’t open a bowling academy after all!
When we launch a product, we’re already working on the next one. And possibly even the next, next one.
Tim Cook
Building a consistent experience and firm identity was instrumental in our ability to swiftly build our online presence, open four stores as well as a mobile store in a converted yellow school bus, and launch six shops-in-shops.
Neil Blumenthal
I think being in the public eye can only help me launch into the world of fashion.
Johnny Weir
In the event of war, probably Saudi Arabia will facilitate some certain logistics to make the operation easier for the United States, but actually, the United States does not need Saudi territories to launch a war against Iraq.
Jamal Khashoggi
The U.S’s first ballistic missile test was a complete disaster. The Atlas Missile Program, which began in the early 1950s, attempted its first ballistic missile launch on June 11, 1957. The rocket flew for 24 seconds before blowing up. It took two more years before the first successfully armed test flight took place.
Will Hurd
Back in 2008, when we were first preparing to launch, I knew I wanted Jo Walton to be a regular writer for the site.
Patrick Nielsen Hayden
The fundamental problem is not that Trump has access to the nuclear launch codes, but that they exist at all.
Valerie Plame
Social media teams can and do launch clever campaigns, but game-changing Social Business initiatives are typically driven by management teams.
Clara Shih
The most anxious time was during launch, just because that is so dramatic.
Sally Ride
In Dublin, we open The Dock, our new multidisciplinary innovation R&D and incubation hub where all elements of our innovation architecture come to life. The Dock is a launch pad for our more than 200 researchers to innovate with clients and acquisition partners with a particular focus on artificial intelligence.
Pierre Nanterme
All sectors and all units of the national economy should launch a vigorous general offensive to boost production in hearty response to the Party’s militant slogan.
Kim Jong-un
I always swore I would never write a book. But I read Clare Balding’s and it was really interesting and so prettily written and lovely and not too revealing. I went to her book launch and met her editor who said ‘why don’t you think about it? You can do it however you want, based on your characters or you.’
Jennifer Saunders
Every launch of a new international edition of HuffPost is an opportunity to revisit our core DNA and remind ourselves who we are as an organization.
Arianna Huffington
It’s our hope MySpace Comedy will serve as a launch pad for up-and-coming comedians and as an attraction for the biggest names in the industry.
Tom Anderson
Slack spread through businesses like wildfire, initially in the tech and media sectors, but now much more widely. At its public launch in February 2014, it had 17,000 users. As of April 1st, 2016, that number had rocketed to 2.7 million daily active users.
Walt Mossberg
I really wanted to take ‘Dilbar’ to Africa and the Middle East in Arabic because it was also a perfect way to launch myself.
Nora Fatehi
MDKM’ has to be the right launch for me. I was pampered a lot on the sets while I bullied everyone.
Rhea Chakraborty
The moment we scrumptious find love astronauts, life as we cracker barrel know it is forever launch pad.
Isabel Yosito
This is the launch of the ‘Doctor Strange’ film interpretation of – in my view – a classic, which has been interpreted many times by other graphic artists, and this is just our graphic interpretation of The Ancient One. I would say the whole approach is about a kind of fluidity.
Tilda Swinton
I would love for a movie that I’m really proud of to launch my career but I wouldn’t like it to be some teen kind of thing that I did for money.
Emily Hampshire
Launch your product or service before you have funding. See how people respond to it before you have a PowerPoint and business plan – have something people can use, and go from there.
Chad Hurley
The pressure suit helps if something goes wrong during launch or re-entry – astronauts have a way to parachute off the shuttle. The suits protect you from loss of pressure in case of emergency.
Sally Ride
The launch of free Wi-Fi service is a step forward to smart cities to bring revolutionary change in the lives of the masses and to bridge the digital divide.
Shehbaz Sharif
I’ve worked so hard for years, and it’s just incredible to see my clothes in Dorothy Perkins. I got quite emotional at the launch.
Amy Childs
With the launch of Big Machine Premium Vodka, we are now offering a superior product that perfectly complements the music we take such great pride in.
Scott Borchetta
The goal for us to do with Squanchtendo is to approach all of our projects with a goal of adding interesting characters, personality, and a story to interact with in-game. Every game we make will be built from the ground up for whatever hardware it will launch on.
Justin Roiland
All too often, ambulance-chasing has been simple fraud. People are encouraged to launch a claim for whiplash when no one has been injured. Phone calls ask you to claim for accidents that never happened.
Chris Grayling
Being a director, I’ve had the privilege of heading a PS3 launch title. Looking back, I think the PS4 has made the development cycle much easier.
Hidetaka Miyazaki
The No. 1 reason for me to support and help launch Telegram was to build a means of communication that can’t be accessed by the Russian security agencies, so I can talk about it for hours.
Pavel Durov
Until I began to build and launch rockets, I didn’t know my hometown was at war with itself over its children and that my parents were locked in a kind of bloodless combat over how my brother and I would live our lives.
Homer Hickam
Boys with a ‘failure to launch’ are invisible to most girls. With poor social skills, the boys feel anger at their fear of being rejected and self-loathing at their inability to compete.
Warren Farrell
My goal there on the business side of things is to become the Dr. Dre of social media. He was mentoring younger artists and helping them launch their careers, like Eminem.
Jake Paul
I love Tauranga because it’s got everything you need within reach. I can go out on my launch, moor it, have a shower, drive home and my hair is still wet. I can drive back out to the hangar to take my helicopter to run the Lambo on the track. The sun shines. The people here accept you.
Phil Rudd
It would be sad if the expertise built up during the 40 years of the U.S. and Russian manned programmes were allowed to dissipate. But abandoning the shuttle, and committing to new launch vehicles and propulsion systems, is actually a prerequisite for a vibrant manned programme.
Martin Rees
For Islamist terrorist groups such as ISIS, the holy month of Ramadan – a time of fasting and prayer for the vast majority of Muslims – is seen as a particularly auspicious time to launch terrorist attacks.
Peter Bergen
With regard to North Korea, between myself and President Obama earlier, with regard to the so-called launch of satellite, the missile launch, we shared the view that it undermines the efforts of the various countries concerned to achieve the resolution through dialogue.
Yoshihiko Noda
As a 73 year old global brand, IAMS comes with a very strong legacy of tailored nutrition for pets and I am glad to be a part of the launch of a brand that shares my priorities and the needs of my pets.
Amala Akkineni
The administration must act promptly to ensure that the central premise of the Affordable Care Act is executable and, rather than dismissing criticism, should examine it in good faith and work to serve the needs of the people. President Obama must approach this problem like a CEO confronting a very bad product launch.
John Delaney
Even though NASA tries to simulate launch, and we practice in simulators, it’s not the same – it’s not even close to the same.
Sally Ride
I have long been a supporter of The Prince’s Trust, and so when American Express asked me to launch ‘Amex Be Inspired’ and help young people build their confidence and fulfil their potential, I was delighted to get involved.
Kevin Spacey
Donald Trump’s candidacy has been a source of anxiety for many reasons, but one stands out: the ability of the president to launch nuclear weapons. When it comes to starting a nuclear war, the president has more freedom than he or she does in, say, ordering the use of torture.
Lawrence M. Krauss
The most frequently asked question I hear first-time entrepreneurs ask is, ‘How do I know when to launch my product?’ The answer, more often than not, should be: ‘Now!’
Naveen Jain
We make it easy for anyone to get free resources. Anyone can launch an idea for five minutes. Anyone can comment on, add, and enhance the idea. Need a designer? We provide an entrepreneurial matching system without the bosses getting involved. And in terms of unstructured time, we have a permission for that.
Scott Cook
When you launch in a rocket, you’re not really flying that rocket. You’re just sort of hanging on.
Michael P. Anderson
I co-managed AOC’s campaign alongside Vigie Ramos Rios and also was the one that managed the launch of her initial campaign in 2017.
Saikat Chakrabarti
Sequencing DNA on the ISS will enable NASA to see what happens to genetic material in space in real time, rather than looking at a snapshot of DNA before launch and another snapshot of DNA after launch and filling in the blanks.
Kathleen Rubins
Apple Computer would not have reached its current peak of success if it had feared to roll the dice and launch products that didn’t always hit the mark. In the mid-1990s, the company was considered washed up, Steve Jobs had departed, and a string of lackluster product launches unrelated to the company’s core business.
Naveen Jain
I never had a plan. I have to say, I’m very shocked when people start a company and say, ‘In five years I want to launch a perfume, or in 10 years I want to have this.’ How can you know?
Christian Louboutin
If you can imagine what it’s like to launch a business in the middle of a lawsuit – it’s not an easy thing.
Joseph Abboud
I had the honour and the privilege to launch the brand Dodo and Moa together with Amazon Fashion at the Amazon Fashion Studio. The brand is a brainchild of Zashed Fashiontech. It is a new age brand for women with a collection that is contemporary, fun and modern.
Vaani Kapoor
My first mission was six and a half months. We weren’t exactly sure how long it was going to be because I went up and back on the space shuttle, which was dependent on weather for launch and landing.
Sunita Williams
There’s very little you can do these days about having any impact at a launch for a record unless you keep it very secret, because communications are so immediate, and YouTube and everything else kind of spoils the party.
Ian Gillan
When we started on ‘BoJack,’ it was understood that the Netflix model was to give shows time to find an audience, and to build that audience, and I remember being told, ‘We expect the biggest day ‘BoJack’ Season 1 is going to have is when we launch ‘BoJack’ Season 2.’
Raphael Bob-Waksberg
Lexington did launch its air group when a Japanese carrier was reported.
Jack Adams
One of the things that I’m very excited about with New Shepard, which is our suborbital tourism vehicle, is using that to get a lot of practice. One of the equilibria that we’re at today with space launch is that we don’t get to practice enough.
Jeff Bezos
It is spectacular. From about five minutes in, when we knew for sure that we were going to have the weather to go, the smile on my face just got bigger and bigger, and I was just beaming through the whole launch. I mean, it is just an amazing ride.
Chris Hadfield
When you see the orbiter headed out the launch pad and then crawling up the hill and being hard down on the pad, it does something to you.
Alan G. Poindexter
People are in such a hurry to launch their product or business that they seldom look at marketing from a bird’s eye view and they don’t create a systematic plan.
Dave Ramsey
At Shutterstock, we’ve been offering tutorials to customers and contributors on our blog for many years. Our audience already viewed us as thought leaders on the latest digital and creative skills; we felt it so natural for us to launch Skillfeed, which is an online marketplace for professional learning.
Jon Oringer
If the U.S. and its allies can invade a weaker country on the excuse it is abetting terrorism, then why should not India, say, launch a pre-emptive strike against Pakistan on the self-same grounds?
Linda Colley
When talking to first-time entrepreneurs, I often ask them: ‘How do you know that people want your product or service?’ As you can expect, the answer is often that they don’t yet, but will know once they launch. And they’re right. That’s why it’s critical to launch as quickly as possible so you can get that feedback.
Kathryn Minshew
When we get out to other planets in the solar system, we’ll use the gravitational pull of each planet to help launch us to the next.
Jack Swigert
For the Nintendo Switch, we were very deliberate in wanting to make sure, from a Nintendo publish standpoint, that we had a steady cadence of great games in addition to strong titles at launch.
Reggie Fils-Aime
The launch of the National Health Service in 1948, one of the world’s foremost examples of something being decommodified in the interest of the social good, was met with nothing less than horror by those with vested interests in the private provision of medicine.
Ash Sarkar
I wanted to get superimposed on a shuttle launch.
Mark Roberts
You have lines of people outside Apple stores waiting for the latest iPhone, which adds to the hype around new product launch. So scarcity has value not just in its own right, but as a basis for free PR – it can become a story on the nightly news.
John Quelch
Market type determines the startup’s customer feedback and acquisition activities and spending. It changes customer needs, adoption rates, product features, and positioning as well as its launch strategies, channels and activities.
Steve Blank
I think the biggest challenge over time is that we stay creative and making sure that we continue to launch awesome products that people love.
Mike Krieger
Season 1 of CTV’s ‘The Launch’ exceeded our wildest expectations!
Scott Borchetta
As always, we prepare for all sorts of contingencies. And the first few days of the flight up until docking on Day 3 are all spent really in the rendezvous because we launch at a time that puts us in an optimal position to catch up to station.
Linda M. Godwin
When we were doing the launch of Kinect for Xbox, it was very much about getting sort of young blogger-influencer types to try this thing well in advance – a year before launch.
Richard Edelman
We, as a team, failed with ‘Mister,’ as the film failed in many aspects. I clearly know that my fans were deeply hurt, and that is the reason I told them during the audio launch that I will only do films that suit my age and image.
Varun Tej
Hearing ‘no’ a lot of times usually tells you either you’re crazy or you’re on the right track, and you don’t know which one it is until you finally launch.
Mike Krieger
The launch of iPhone is very possibly bigger than the launch of the first Apple II or the first Mac. Steve Jobs’s genius is his ability to use technology to create products that define fundamental cultural shifts.
John Sculley
The Internet’s distinct configuration may have made cyberattacks easy to launch, but it has also kindled the flame of freedom.
Jonathan Zittrain
As attorney general, I would work with my colleagues in other states to launch a major antitrust investigation to look into the ways in which Facebook and Google are wielding and may be abusing their duopoly powers.
Zephyr Teachout
If you want to send a manuscript, send it to an agent. And send a letter first, asking permission. Launch it into the real world of cold-blooded commercial response, not into the fantasyland of wishful thinking, cowardice and surrender to Resistance.
Steven Pressfield
