“I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.”
“Have Patience. Like I say to my American friends, it took you more than two hundred years to get where you want us to get in two hundred days.”

“I love you.”
Jackie Robinson to his wife Rachel
Not really a quote as it is a great story…I was listening to Bob Costas on the radio earlier this summer (2008) and he had an interview with Rachel Robinson, widow of Jackie Robinson. She had many great stories to share, but the one that stood out was about the day Jackie died. He hadn’t felt good the night before and they decided together that they would get up and early and see the doctor. As Rachel was in another room she heard Jackie running towards her, he collapsed in her arms as he told her he loved her. Jackie Robinson died of a heart attack, but the story is just amazing. Knowing something was wrong the last thing he did was let the love of his life know how he felt.
