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.

– Amelia Earhart

Even though Earhart was a record-breaking pioneer aviator and women’s rights activist, she is best known for disappearing while attempting a flight around the world. But perhaps the most ‘lost’ part of her life is that hardly anyone knows that she was a budding poet.
