“It is the greatest shot of adrenaline to be doing what you have wanted to do so badly. You almost feel like you could fly without the plane...” -Charles Lindbergh

He was a man of character, courage, patriotism, self-discipline, and independence (some called it stubbornness), with an obsession for factual and technical accuracy and a high sense of integrity. In his diary he once wrote, ‘I prefer adventure to security, freedom to popularity, and conviction to influence’” (American National Biography).
