A Quote by Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr. on adventure, cowardice, criticism, death, home, kindness, life, men, and mountains

Any coward can sit in his 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. What kind of man would live where there is no daring? And is life so dear that we should blame men for dying in adventure? Is there a better way to die?
