The sky's the limit

Posted by Guidegirl on September 12, 2007

What is the origin of the adage "The sky's the limit"? I have only found one reference, this from the OnLine Etymology Dictionary: " ...phrase "the sky's the limit" is attested from 1920." I've looked at aviation history (no Wright brother said it, and Earhart played off of it later with "The sky is not the limit.",at history of high-rises, Roaring 20's history, stock market history.
