Аме́лия Мэ́ри Э́рхарт — известная американская писательница и пионер авиации. Она была первой женщиной-пилотом, перелетевшей Атлантический океан, за что была награждена Крестом Лётных Заслуг . Она написала несколько книг-бестселлеров о своих полётах и сыграла важную роль в формировании «Девяносто девять» — организации женщин-пилотов, была избрана её первым Президентом.

В 1935 году Эрхарт начала работать на факультете авиационного отделения Университета Пердью в качестве приглашённого преподавателя. Занимая эту должность, она стремилась привлечь больше женщин в сферу авиации и консультировать их в вопросах карьеры. Она также была членом Национальной Партии Женщин и одним из первых сторонников «Поправки о Равных Правах».

В 1937 году при попытке совершить кругосветный полёт на двухмоторном лёгком транспортном и пассажирском самолёте, Локхид Модель 10 Электра , который был финансирован Университетом Пердью, Эрхарт пропала без вести в центральной части Тихого океана в районе острова Хауленд. Её жизнь и карьера продолжают привлекать внимание историков и по сей день, а загадка её исчезновения до сих пор не разгадана.

„Courage is the price that
Life exacts for granting peace.
The soul that knows it not, knows no release
From little things“

—  Amelia Earhart
Context: Courage is the price that Life exacts for granting peace. The soul that knows it not, knows no release From little things: Knows not the livid loneliness of fear, Nor mountain heights where bitter joy can hear The sound of wings. Poetry written around the time of the breaking of her "tenuous engagement" to Samuel Chapman (c. 1928), published in Amelia, My Courageous Sister : Biography of Amelia Earhart (1987) by Muriel Earhart Morrissey and Carol L. Osborne, p. 74; also in Amelia : A Life of the Aviation Legend (1999) by Donald M. Goldstein and Katherine V. Dillon, p. 38

„In my life I had come to realize that when things were going very well indeed it was just the time to anticipate trouble.“

—  Amelia Earhart
Context: In my life I had come to realize that when things were going very well indeed it was just the time to anticipate trouble. And, conversely, I learned from pleasant experience that at the most despairing crisis, when all looked sour beyond words, some delightful "break" was apt to lurk just around the corner. p. 70

„Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be a challenge to others.“

—  Amelia Earhart
Context: Please know that I am aware of the hazards. 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 a challenge to others. Letter to her husband George P. Putnam, on the eve of her last flight

„In soloing—as in other activities—it is far easier to start something than it is to finish it.“

—  Amelia Earhart
Context: In soloing—as in other activities—it is far easier to start something than it is to finish it. Almost every beginner hops off with a whoop of joy, though he is likely to end his flight with something akin to the D. T.'s. 20 Hrs., 40 Min. (1928), p. 16

„The time to worry is three months before a flight. Decide then whether or not the goal is worth the risks involved. If it is, stop worrying. To worry is to add another hazard.“

—  Amelia Earhart
Context: The time to worry is three months before a flight. Decide then whether or not the goal is worth the risks involved. If it is, stop worrying. To worry is to add another hazard. It retards reactions, makes one unfit.... Hamlet would have been a bad aviator. He worried too much. Original forward for the writings in Last Flight, as quoted in Lost Star : The Search for Amelia Earhart (1995) by Randall Brink, p. 85

„No kind action ever stops with itself. One kind action leads to another.“

—  Amelia Earhart
Context: No kind action ever stops with itself. One kind action leads to another. Good example is followed. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves. Originally Frederick William Faber, sermon "On Kindness in General", found in Spiritual Conferences, a collection of his oratory, ca. 1860
