1902 - 1974

A Quote by Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr.

History has recorded nothing so dramatic in design, nor so skillfully manipulated, as this attempt to create the National Reserve Association, or the Federal Reserve.

A Quote by Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr.

We can so reconstruct society that it will be self-perpetuating instead of as now, self-exhaustive.

A Quote by Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr. on life, live, chances, risk, and opportunity

 

What kind of person would live where there is no daring?  I don't believe in taking foolish chances, but nothing can be accomplished without taking any chance at all.

A Quote by Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr. on cowardice, criticism, death, home, and mountains

Any coward can sit at home and criticize a pilot for flying into a mountain in a fog. But I would rather by far die on a mountainside than in bed.

A Quote by Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr. on animals, challenge, civilization, clarity, discovery, knowledge, life, men, plants, progress, quality, and science

Is civilization progress? The challenge, I think, is clear; and, as clearly, the final answer will be given not by our amassing of knowledge, or by the discoveries of our science, or by the speed of our aircraft, but by the effect of our civilized activities as a whole have upon the quality of our planet's life-the life of plants and animals as that of men.

A Quote by Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr. on body, conviction, decisions, feeling, kindness, logic, mind, power, uncertainty, vision, and weather

Wind, weather, power, load - gradually these elements stop churning in my mind. It's less a decision of logic than a feeling, the kind of feeling that comes when you gauge the distance to be jumped between two stones across a brook. Something within you disengages itself from your body and travels ahead with your vision to make the test. You can feel it try the jump as you stand looking. Then uncertainty gives way to the conviction that it can or can't be done.

A Quote by Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr. on improvement, life, and strength

The improvement of our way of life is more important than the spreading of it. If we make it satisfactory enough, it will spread automatically. If we do not, no strength of arms can permanently oppose it.

A Quote by Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr. on balance, belief, body, earth, life, luxury, mind, science, spirit, and survival

I believe that for permanent survival, man must balance science with other qualities of life, qualities of body and spirit as well as those of mind - qualities he cannot develop when he lets mechanics and luxury insulate him too greatly from the earth to which he was born.

A Quote by Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr. on consequences, country, danger, government, history, influence, judaism, lies, majorities, peace, people, strength, survival, tolerance, virtue, and war

Instead of agitating for war, the Jewish groups in this country should be opposing it in every possible way, for they will be among the first to feel its consequences. Tolerance is a virtue that depends upon peace and strength. History shows that it cannot survive war and devastation. A few very far-sighted Jewish people realize this and stand opposed to intervention. But the majority still do not. Their greatest danger to this country lies in their ownership and influence in our motion pictures, our press, our radio, and our government.
