Community Quotes  

Good day Asgardians!

We'd like to ask our amazing community for a short quote as to why you joined Asgardia! These will be run at our upcoming Hong Kong press conference event (and future events like this one!) so we can let know that our community spans the globe!

Please comment on this thread a short paragraph, no more than 100 words, telling us why you joined Asgardia and signed by your full name and which country you are from.

Submissions for quotes will run until Wednesday, May 17, 2017 at 11:59pm EST (GMT - 5)

EDIT: Due to an overwhelming response to our request for quotes on why you became an Asgardian, we have decided to make this a regular initiative! As there are so many, we may end up using either full or partial parts of your quotes (properly credited with your name and location) either on the Asgardia.space website or in other media events or releases or your quote may even be featured in an issue of ROOM when reporting about Asgardia!

So please keep them coming until the close time today and we are working hard in a way for everyone can submit their quotes into the pool to be used in future!

Let's hear your voices Asgardia!

Kind regards,
Rebekah Berg
Head of Community Affairs

I joined Asgardia to support the concept and ideals for peace, tolerance, and a better life. I know I may not have the opportunity to experience this, but my children or maybe their children can have a hope to. Along with it the chance to save human existence and continue to better itself.

- removed and permission revoked to use my quote ant any publicity or media events.

After reading the draft constitution, it appears I, along with many others, are unsatisfied with how their input ito the proposed system of government has been completely disregarded. I have been unable to find a single person that suggested that the government be a constitutional monarchy, yet that it what has been proposed.

I'll stick around to see what happens, but it is not looking good.

"Curiosity killed the cat"... but I'm not a cat, even if curious like them: curiosity drove my steps to this place, the same way curiosity rover is still exploring Mars.

I'm Sci-Fi fan since the time I've been able to read books. I also think that humanity can't avoid to expand it's presence out of our world, and this is just the moment we're seriously planning how to do it: Asgardia will bring a lot of new concepts and a "way to think" the space, somewhat different to traditional Earth's ones. Humanity-in-space will be different from humanity-on-Earth, and this lays on the "freedom" concept.

All our lives we think about becoming someone special, someone honored and could be remembered in the pages of history. We want to follow the footsteps of extraordinary people like Jinnah/Gandhi/Mandela to achieve something that is beyond our wildest dreams and that is greatness. I joined Asgardia to be part of development and expansion of a nation that will ultimately become sanctuary for those who have been aggrieved, deprived of Justice and Peace. I joined to become a voice among many to start a long journey towards a sustainable future for our generations to come.

Being able to have helped create a nation around science, peace, and protection for all humanity! 

Leo Marquie, United States

Only 100 words, just doesn't seem easy, especially when there are so many reasons I joined. Just being here, a part of this community & growing nation, is an awesome feeling. Being able to share with so many great people that have similar ideas on what can make a nation great. Can't wait to always see what's happening each new day here.

It is over for me today. Tomorrow is a new day. And time is passing quickly. Kids are growing fast. Asgardia is a beautiful heritage. And we, our children , can leave a wonderful miracle.

I am simply sick and tired of humanity devouring itself. Asgardia will be a place where everyone will come together and work together as one people, regardless of place of birth, skin-colour and background for the benefit of all mankind. How could I resist following such a dream?

Alot of my friends were expressing scepticism about the whole Asgardia concept - and honestly, so do I. But I have joined anyway. Because I sincerely believe that if there is even a remote chance that we may finally achieve evolution and peace, then we should seize that chance no matter what.

Hi

  • I joined the Asgardia poject because I strive for a greater cause for mankind , even if that means providing with what little I have got. 
  • I do not want to work for a company, country or organisation which has no ambition or just doesn't want to help aid mankind into a great prosperous future.

  • I would admit that when I first heard about the Asgardia poject , I was sceptical about it but that was when I first heard about it , it was a day old.
  • But I still joined . If a person continuously misses opportunity in his/her's life then the same person would live a very "dead beat" and boring life.

  • I joined at the start of this poject and I am  still loving it .

  • Regards

Good Morning,
