Never interrupt someone doing what you said couldn’t be done. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; the process is its own reward. Women, like men, should try to do the impossible. And if they fail, their failure should be a challenge to others.
I have often said that the lure of flying is the lure of beauty. That the reasons flyers fly, whether they know it or not, is the aesthetic appeal of flying.

Women must pay for everything. They do get more glory than men for comparable feats, but, they also get more notoriety when they crash.
Flying might not be all plain sailing, but the fun of it is worth the price.
