Charles Lindbergh ( 1902 - 1974 ), American aviator, inventor, author: "To be absolutely alone for the first time in the cockpit of a plane hundreds of feet above the ground is an experience never to be forgotten...Success is not measured by what a man accomplishes, but by the opposition he has encountered and the courage with which he has maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds...The Jews are one of the principal forces attempting to lead the U.S. into the war. The Jews' greatest danger to this country lies in their large ownership and influence in our motion pictures, our press, our radio, and our Government. I am saying that the leaders of the Jewish race wish to involve us in the war for reasons that are not American...Life without risks is not worth living."
