Frasi Amelia Earhart

„Agire è il modo migliore per scoprire che cosa funziona e che cosa no.“

—  Amelia Earhart

Origine: Citato in Godfrey 2012, p. 196 http://books.google.it/books?id=DAfMaw1nG5UC&pg=PT196.

—  Amelia Earhart

Origine: Citato in Godfrey 2012, p. 174 http://books.google.it/books?id=DAfMaw1nG5UC&pg=PT174.

„The time to worry is three months before a flight. Decide then whether or not the goal is worth the risks involved. If it is, stop worrying. To worry is to add another hazard.“

—  Amelia Earhart

Original forward for the writings in Last Flight, as quoted in Lost Star : The Search for Amelia Earhart (1995) by Randall Brink, p. 85
Contesto: The time to worry is three months before a flight. Decide then whether or not the goal is worth the risks involved. If it is, stop worrying. To worry is to add another hazard. It retards reactions, makes one unfit.... Hamlet would have been a bad aviator. He worried too much.

„Courage is the price that
Life exacts for granting peace.
The soul that knows it not, knows no release
From little things“

—  Amelia Earhart

Poetry written around the time of the breaking of her "tenuous engagement" to Samuel Chapman (c. 1928), published in Amelia, My Courageous Sister : Biography of Amelia Earhart (1987) by Muriel Earhart Morrissey and Carol L. Osborne, p. 74; also in Amelia : A Life of the Aviation Legend (1999) by Donald M. Goldstein and Katherine V. Dillon, p. 38
Contesto: Courage is the price that
Life exacts for granting peace.
The soul that knows it not, knows no release
From little things:
Knows not the livid loneliness of fear,
Nor mountain heights where bitter joy can hear
The sound of wings.

„In soloing—as in other activities—it is far easier to start something than it is to finish it.“

—  Amelia Earhart

20 Hrs., 40 Min. (1928), p. 16
Contesto: In soloing—as in other activities—it is far easier to start something than it is to finish it. Almost every beginner hops off with a whoop of joy, though he is likely to end his flight with something akin to the D. T.'s.

„Please know that I am aware of the hazards.“

—  Amelia Earhart, libro Last Flight

Letter to her husband George P. Putnam, on the eve of her last flight
Last Flight (1937)
Contesto: Please know that I am aware of the hazards. I want to do it because I want to do it. Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be a challenge to others.

„The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves.“

—  Amelia Earhart

Originally Frederick William Faber, sermon "On Kindness in General", found in Spiritual Conferences, a collection of his oratory, ca. 1860
Misattributed
Contesto: No kind action ever stops with itself. One kind action leads to another. Good example is followed. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves.

„In my life I had come to realize that when things were going very well indeed it was just the time to anticipate trouble.“

—  Amelia Earhart, libro Last Flight

Origine: Last Flight (1937), p. 70
Contesto: In my life I had come to realize that when things were going very well indeed it was just the time to anticipate trouble. And, conversely, I learned from pleasant experience that at the most despairing crisis, when all looked sour beyond words, some delightful "break" was apt to lurk just around the corner.

„I want you to understand I shall not hold you to any midaevil code of faithfulness to me nor shall I consider myself bound to you similarly.“

—  Amelia Earhart

Note to George P. Putnam, on the date of their wedding (7 February 1931), as quoted in The Sound of Wings (1989) by Mary S. Lovell

„Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be a challenge to others.“

„How can Life grant us boon of living, compensate
For dull grey ugliness and pregnant hate
Unless we dare
The soul's dominion? Each time we make a choice, we pay
With courage to behold the restless day,
And count it fair.“
