Aviation Wisdom From the Past – February 2, 2015

Robert Novells’ Third Dimension Blog

February 2, 2015

Good Morning—I hope everyone had a good rest and I hope the Superbowl, and perhaps a little bit of celebrating, did not keep you up to late. Today I have a quote from Betty Skelton, “The First Lady of Firsts,” that I would like to share and should you not remember who Betty Skelton is click HERE.

Have a good week, fly safe/be safe and thanks for letting the 3DB be a part of your week.

Aviation Wisdom from the Past

“Pay no attention to what others say, what they think, what they do. Let your free spirit take you where you will, and when it falters, let your soul demand that you not give up, but only aspire to climb higher and higher.

“As you soar into the heights, never forget the others or look down upon them. Remember, you were once there and needed help, understanding, and love. Direct your free spirit to helping your fellow man…and you will know heaven on Earth.

“Never believe your own press, nor take your accolades too seriously. It matters not what you did yesterday. Only what you do today, and tomorrow, is meaningful to your freedom and spirit.

“Challenge and perfection is the greatest gift of life. Embrace it and use it well. To turn your back on the challenge of perfection is to close the door on your spirit, your freedom… your very existence.

“It is not easy to be the best. You must have the courage to bear pain, disappointment, and heartbreak. Our dedication must help lift the other up when one of us is down. You must learn how to face danger and understand fear, yet not be afraid. You must establish your goal, and no matter what deters you along the way, in your every waking moment you must say to yourself, `I can do it.'”
