Best Helium Quotes

  1. “You lose your anonymity just like a helium balloon with a string. Therefore people are going to have their own opinion and they’re going to write in whatever clever manner they desire” ~ Kim Basinger
  2. “When things get too heavy, just call me helium, the lightest known gas to man.” ~ Jimi Hendrix
  3. “I’ve read short stories that are as dense as a 19th century novel and novels that really are short stories filled with a lot of helium.” ~ Lynn Abbey
  4. “Nuclear fusion of light elements like hydrogen or helium would permit approaching the speed of light. It seems very attractive to refuel your space ships where the fuel is.” ~ Wilson Greatbatch

  5. “It has long been known that the chemical atomic weight of hydrogen was greater than one-quarter of that of helium, but so long as fractional weights were general there was no particular need to explain this fact, nor could any definite conclusions be drawn from it.” ~ Francis William Aston
  6. “In a certain sense I made a living for five or six years out of that one star [υ Sagittarii] and it is still a fascinating, not understood, star. It’s the first star in which you could clearly demonstrate an enormous difference in chemical composition from the sun. It had almost no hydrogen. It was made largely of helium, and had much too much nitrogen and neon. It’s still a mystery in many ways … But it was the first star ever analysed that had a different composition, and I started that area of spectroscopy in the late thirties.” ~ Jesse L. Greenstein
  7. “A hot air balloon requires a great deal of fuel to keep it aloft, so that you can’t fly it even for one day. A gas balloon, which usually uses helium, has the problem that the helium cools at night when the sun is not on it, and you have to throw ballast overboard to keep it from going to the surface.” ~ Steve Fossett
  8. “The helium which we handle must have been put together at some time and some place. We do not argue with the critic who urges that the stars are not hot enough for this process; we tell him to go and find a hotter place.” ~ Arthur Eddington

  9. “Love is a helium-based emotion; Love always takes the high road.” ~ Augusten Burroughs
  10. “I quit my job at the helium gas factory. I didn’t like being spoken to in that voice.” ~ Stewart Francis
  11. “Compliments are the helium that fills everyone’s balloon; they elevate the person receiving them so he or she can fly over life’s troubles and land safely on the other side.” ~ Bernie Siegel
  12. “What if I jumped out of an airplane with a couple of tanks of helium and one huge, un-inflated balloon? Then, while falling, I release the helium and fill the balloon. How long of a fall would I need in order for the balloon to slow me enough that I could land safely?” ~ Colin Rowe
  13. “We, all of us, are what happens when a primordial mixture of hydrogen and helium evolves for so long that it begins to ask where it came from.” ~ Jill Tarter

  14. “Might it be the discovery of a distant civilization and our common cosmic origins that finally drives home the message of the bond among all humans. Whether we’re born in San Francisco or Sudan or close to the heart of the Milky Way Galaxy, we are the products of a billion-year lineage of wandering stardust. We, all of us, are what happens when a primordial mixture of hydrogen and helium evolves for so long that it begins to ask where it came from.” ~ Jill Tarter
  15. “Chicken,’ Josie said. ‘Have you ever been in love?’ Peter looked at Josie, and thought of how they had once tied a note with their addresses to a helium balloon and let it go in her backyard, certain it would reach Mars. Instead, they had received a letter from a widow who lived two blocks away. ‘Yeah,’ he said. ‘I think so.” ~ Jodi Picoult
  16. “Earlier generations of stars in the galaxy could well have had planets. But really, there was only hydrogen and helium to work with, so they’d all be gas giants and not small, rocky planets.” ~ Jill Tarter

  17. “Five centuries from now – barring unimaginable catastrophe – the moon will be developed real estate. There’s economic incentive to exploit the moon – the helium-3 will be useful in powering fusion reactors, and the rare earth elements could supplant the limited terrestrial supply of these materials.” ~ Seth Shostak
  18. “Our entire universe emerged from a point smaller than a single atom. Space itself exploded in a cosmic fire, launching the expansion of the universe and giving birth to all the energy and all the matter we know today. I know that sounds crazy, but there’s strong observational evidence to support the Big Bang theory. And it includes the amount of helium in the cosmos and the glow of radio waves left over from the explosion.” ~ Neil deGrasse Tyson
  19. “Well I’ve been doing it for about twenty years, I did films when I was a little kid, when I was about six or seven, I was in films and I had this really high voice, I did a series called Dinobabies, that was my first one. And then after that I did Madeline, yeah so it just kind of happened and then never went away. Then everyone said your voice is going to change and you’ll be out… No, no, still on helium.” ~ Andrea Libman
  20. “He (Ozzie Smith) plays like he’s on a mini-trampoline or wearing helium kangaroo shorts.” ~ Andy Van Slyke

  21. “Any artist, in any field, wants to press deeper, to discover further. Image and sound play are among the strongest colors available to poetry’s palette. For a long time, I’ve wanted to invite in more strangeness, more freedom of imagination. Yet music, seeing, and meaning are also cohering disciplines. They can be stretched, and that is part of poetry’s helium pleasure. But not to the point of breaking.” ~ Jane Hirshfield
  22. “I can’t blame modern technology for my predilection for distraction, not after all the hours I’ve spent watching lost balloons disappear into the clouds. I did it before the Internet, and I’ll do it after the apocalypse, assuming we still have helium and weak-gripped children.” ~ Colson Whitehead
  23. “Finally I got to carbon, and as you all know, in the case of carbon the reaction works out beautifully. One goes through six reactions, and at the end one comes back to carbon. In the process one has made four hydrogen atoms into one of helium. The theory, of course, was not made on the railway train from Washington to Ithaca … It didn’t take very long, it took about six weeks, but not even the Trans-Siberian railroad [has] taken that long for its journey.” ~ Hans Bethe
  24. “You see, the chemists have a complicated way of counting: instead of saying “one, two, three, four, five protons”, they say, “hydrogen, helium, lithium, beryllium, boron.”” ~ Richard P. Feynman

  25. “If cocaine were helium, the NBA would float away.” ~ Art Rust, Jr.
  26. “You sounded like Dolly parton on helium.” (After kristy lee cook of season 7 on american idol,sang her country rendition of the Beatles'”Eight Days A Week.)” ~ Simon Cowell
  27. “My chest feels full of glitter and helium, the way it used to when I was little and riding my father’s shoulders at twilight, when I knew that if I held up my hands and spread my fingers like a net, I could catch the coming stars.” ~ Jodi Picoult
  28. “Theophilus Crowe’s mobile phone played eight bars of “Tangled Up in Blue” in an irritating electronic voice that sounded like a choir of suffering houseflies, or Jiminy Cricket huffing helium, or, well, you know, Bob Dylan.” ~ Christopher Moore
  29. “This is what happens: somebody—girl usually—got a free spirit, doesn’t get on too good with her parents. These kids, they’re like tied-down helium balloons. They strain against the string and strain against it, and then something happens, and that string gets cut, and they just float away. And maybe you never see the balloon again . . . Or maybe three or four years from now, or three or four days from now, the prevailing winds take the balloon back home . . . But listen, kid, that string gets cut all the time.” ~ John Green
