Charles Lindbergh

1902 - 1974

A Quote by Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr. on adventure, ambition, bravery, choice, companions, company, contentment, courage, darkness, faith, inspiration, men, mind, skill, solitude, soul, and strength

LINDBERGH FLIES ALONE Alone? Is he alone at whose right side rides Courage, with Skill within the cockpit and faith upon the left? Does solitude surround the brave when Adventure leads the way and Ambition reads the dials? Is there no company with him, for whom the air is cleft by Daring and the darkness made light by Emprise? True, the fragile bodies of his fellows do not weigh down his plane; true, the fretful minds of weaker men are missing from his crowded cabin; but as his airship keeps its course he holds communion with those rare spirits that inspire to intrepidity and by their sustaining potency give strength to arm, resource to mind, content to soul. Alone? With what other companions would man fly to whom the choice were given?

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.
