Amelia Earhart was the first woman pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She was the first woman to receive the Distinguished Flying Cross, and later formed an organization for women pilots called The Ninety-Nines. She published several books about her experiences. As an early supporter of equal rights for women, Earhart was the embodiment of the idea that women can do anything men can do. She continues to be an inspiration to many.The following are a few quotes that inspire the Damsels in Success team.
“Everyone has oceans to fly, if they have the heart to do it. Is it reckless? Maybe. But what do dreams know of boundaries?”
“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 but a challenge to others.”
“Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace.”
“Adventure is worthwhile in itself.”
“Being alone is scary, but not as scary as feeling alone in a relationship.”
“The most effective way to do it is to do it.”
“The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward.”
