Jonas Salk

Developer of Polio Vaccine

I felt myself very much like someone in the eye of a hurricane because all this swirling was going on around me. It was at that moment that everything changed. It was Edward R. Murrow, the journalist and newscaster that said to me that evening, "Young man, a great tragedy has just befallen you." I said, "What's that, Ed?" He said, "You've just lost your anonymity."

Fritz Scholder

Native American Artist

To be different for the sake of being different means nothing. You must walk that tightrope between accident and discipline. Accident by itself, again, so what? Discipline by itself is boring. By walking that tightrope and putting down something on a canvas that conceivably is unique, coming from your guts, you have a chance of making marks that, of course, will live longer than you.

Robert Schuller

Crystal Cathedral

I'm sick and tired of this country being divided left and right, conservative and liberal, communist, pro-communist and anti-communist. I've lived my whole life that way. I'm 70 years old. And by God, now it's time for a President who can bring us together. I don't care what party he belongs to.
