Anne Morrow Lindbergh fue una escritora estadounidense y aviadora. Fue hija del empresario y político estadounidense Dwight Morrow y su esposa, Elizabeth Cutter Morrow, poeta y defensora de la educación de la mujer. Obtuvo su licenciatura en Filosofía y Letras en 1928 y al año siguiente contrajo matrimonio con el ingeniero y aviador Charles Lindbergh,[1]​ a quien conoció en México cuando su padre lo trajo como señal de buena voluntad, ya que era muy famoso porque acababa de volar sobre el Atlántico sin escalas. Los Lindbergh se fueron de luna de miel a Acapulco, entonces de moda entre los jóvenes que querían ir de aventura, pues aún no se terminaba bien la carretera. Anne Morrow y su esposo tuvieron seis hijos, uno de los cuales, Charles Jr., fue secuestrado y asesinado cuando era un bebé de 20 meses de edad. A raíz del hecho, en EE.UU. se castiga con pena de muerte el secuestro y la ley que así lo dispone se llama Ley Lindbergh.

Tras 45 años de matrimonio, Charles Lindbergh murió en 1974. Su trayectoria personal se había vuelto difícil y había dejado de ser un héroe nacional para convertirse en un personaje muy controvertido. Tras varios episodios de apoplejía en la década de los 90, Anne murió en 2001 en su casa de Vermont a los 94 años. Luego de su muerte se descubrió que Charles había tenido tres hijos con una amante a quien mantuvo durante 17 años, un hijo con la hermana de ésta, y posiblemente tuvo otro también con su secretaria, lo que contribuyó a formar el carácter estoico de Anne en las últimas décadas de su vida."[2]​

Frases Anne Morrow Lindbergh

„The most exhausting thing in life, I have discovered, is being insincere.“

— Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Gift from the Sea
Context: I find I am shedding hypocrisy in human relationships. What a rest that will be! The most exhausting thing in life, I have discovered, is being insincere. That is why so much of social life is exhausting; one is wearing a mask. I have shed my mask. Ch. 2; part of this statement has often been paraphrased: "The most exhausting thing in life is being insincere."

„Here sits the Unicorn;
Leashed by a chain of gold
To the pomengranate tree.
So light a chain to hold
So fierce a beast;“

— Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Context: Here sits the Unicorn; Leashed by a chain of gold To the pomengranate tree. So light a chain to hold So fierce a beast; Delicate as a cross at rest On a maiden's breast. He could snap the golden chain With one toss of his mane, If he chose to move, If he chose to prove His liberty. But he does not choose What choice would lose. He stays, the Unicorn, In captivity.

„So dazzling was the spread of constellations that it had the impact of a vision, of some hidden insight.“

— Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Context: So dazzling was the spread of constellations that it had the impact of a vision, of some hidden insight. I drove home saying to myself: The dead, too, are like this, blazing within us — invisibly. As quoted in No More Words : A Journal of My Mother, Anne Morrow Lindbergh (2001) by Reeve Lindbergh, p. 41

„I believe most people are aware of periods in their lives when they seem to be "in grace" and other periods when they feel "out of grace," even though they may use different words to describe these states.“

— Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Context: I believe most people are aware of periods in their lives when they seem to be "in grace" and other periods when they feel "out of grace," even though they may use different words to describe these states. In the first happy condition, one seems to carry all one’s tasks before one lightly, as if borne along on a great tide; and in the opposite state one can hardly tie a shoe-string. It is true that a large part of life consists in learning a technique of tying the shoe-string, whether one is in grace or not. But there are techniques of living too; there are even techniques in the search for grace.

„The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient.“

— Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Context: The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. To dig for treasures shows not only impatience and greed, but lack of faith. Patience, patience, patience, is what the sea teaches. Patience and faith. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach — waiting for a gift from the sea.

„I do not believe that sheer suffering teaches. If suffering alone taught, all the world would be wise, since everyone suffers. To suffering must be added mourning, understanding, patience, love, openness and the willingness to remain vulnerable.“

— Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Gift from the Sea
Context: I do not believe that sheer suffering teaches. If suffering alone taught, all the world would be wise, since everyone suffers. To suffering must be added mourning, understanding, patience, love, openness and the willingness to remain vulnerable. All these and other factors combined, if the circumstances are right, can teach and can lead to rebirth.
