Excerpt from The Curtiss Aviation Book He must be so completely in harmony with Na ture and her moods that he can tell just when is the right time to attempt a dangerous experiment, and so thoroughly in control of himself that he can refuse to make the experiment when he knows it Should not be made, even though urged by all those around him to go ahead. He must feel that nothing is impossible, and yet he must not at tempt anything until he is sure that he is ready and every element of danger has been eliminated, so far as lies in human power. He must realise that he cannot change the forces of nature, but that he can make them do his work when he under stands them. Some of these qualities must be in bred in the man, but the life-story of Glenn H. Curtiss shows how far energy, courage, and tire less perseverance will go toward bringing them out.
