Frasi Jurij Gagarin

„Non vedo nessun Dio quassù.“

— Jurij Gagarin
citato in Daniele Soffiati, Non ci posso credere!, Aliberti Editore

„Da quassù la Terra è bellissima, senza frontiere né confini.“

— Jurij Gagarin
citato in Roberto Vittori, Io, nel guscio della Soyuz, pensando a Gagarin, corriere. it


„Orbiting Earth in the , I saw how beautiful our planet is. People, let us preserve and increase this beauty, not destroy it!“

— Yuri Gagarin
Context: Orbiting Earth in the, I saw how beautiful our planet is. People, let us preserve and increase this beauty, not destroy it! Russian phrase, handwritten and signed after his historic spaceflight, photo of facsimile published in Syny goluboi planety 3rd.edition (1981) by L. Lebedev, A. Romanov, and B/ Luk'ianov; the first edition was translated into English as Sons of the Blue Planet (1973) by L. A. Lebedev


„I enjoyed the rich color spectrum of the earth. It is surrounded by a light blue aureole that gradually darkens, becoming turquiose, dark blue, violet, and finally coal black.“

— Yuri Gagarin
Context: What beauty. I saw clouds and their light shadows on the distant dear earth.... The water looked like darkish, slightly gleaming spots.... When I watched the horizon, I saw the abrupt, contrasting transition from the earth's light-colored surface to the absolutely black sky. I enjoyed the rich color spectrum of the earth. It is surrounded by a light blue aureole that gradually darkens, becoming turquiose, dark blue, violet, and finally coal black. As quoted in Earth's Aura (1977) by Louise B. Young

„First words upon returning to Earth, to a woman and a girl near where his capsule landed (12 April 1961) The woman asked: "Can it be that you have come from outer space?" to which Gagarin replied: "As a matter of fact, I have!" As quoted in The Air Up There : More Great Quotations on Flight (2003) by Dave English, p. 118“

— Yuri Gagarin
Rays were blazing through the of the earth, the horizon became bright orange, gradually passing into all the colors of the rainbow: from light blue to dark blue, to violet and then to black. What an indescribable gamut of colors! Just like the paintings of the artist Nicholas Roerich.

„I looked and looked but I didn't see God.“

— Yuri Gagarin
As quoted in To Rise from Earth (1996) by Wayne Lee; some websites quote him as saying "I looked and looked and looked but I didn't see God." on 14 April 1961, a couple days after his historic flight, but the authenticity of such statements have been disputed; [ Colonel Valentin Petrov stated in 2006] that the cosmonaut never said such words, and that the quote originated from Nikita Khrushchev's speech at the plenum of the Central Committee of the CPSU about the state's anti-religion campaign, saying "Gagarin flew into space, but didn't see any god there." Gagarin himself was a member of the Russian Orthodox Church. Variant: No I didn't see God. I looked and looked but I didn't see God. As quoted in What's Missing Inside You? (2006) by Paul Schlieker, p. 17


„The main force in man — is the power of the spirit.“

— Yuri Gagarin
As quoted in Essays on Marxist-Leninist Ethics [марксистско-ленинской этике] (1962) by Simon S. Utkin [Семен Семенович Уткин], p. 180 Variant translation: The main human strength is willpower.

„When they saw me in my space suit and the parachute dragging alongside as I walked, they started to back away in fear. I told them, don't be afraid, I am a Soviet like you, who has descended from space and I must find a telephone to call Moscow!“

— Yuri Gagarin
Recalling his meeting with workers in a field, upon his landing, as quoted in [ "Life on Mars?" by Jesse Skinner in Toro magazine (14 October 2008)]

„I see no God up here.“

— Yuri Gagarin
This has been reported as a remark Gagarin made while in orbit aboard Vostok 1, but there is no indication of it in the official transcripts of his communications. It is similar to the above statements he reportedly made after his return to earth, which might have given rise to this account.
