Charles A. Lindbergh
I was astonished at the effect my successful landing in France had on the nations of the world. To me, it was like a match lighting a bonfire.
Real freedom lies in wildness, not in civilization.
I have seen the science I worshipped, and the aircraft I loved, destroying the civilization I expected them to serve.
I realized that If I had to choose, I would rather have birds than airplanes.
