„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, buch Last Flight

Quelle: Last Flight (1937), p. 70
Kontext: 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.
