„I could spend the rest of my life reading, just satisfying my curiosity“

— Malcolm X American human rights activist 1925 - 1965
Context: I told the Englishman that my alma mater was books, a good library. Every time I catch a plane, I have with me a book that I want to read—and that’s a lot of books these days. If I weren’t out here every day battling the white man, I could spend the rest of my life reading, just satisfying my curiosity—because you can hardly mention anything I’m not curious about. [http://www.uri.edu/library/inscriptions/almamater.html Chapter 11, paragraph 59]

„It took a lot of courage for him to befriend me in front of Hitler... You can melt down all the medals and cups I have and they wouldn't be a plating on the 24-karat friendship I felt for Lutz Long at that moment.“

— Jesse Owens American track and field athlete 1913 - 1980
Context: It took a lot of courage for him to befriend me in front of Hitler... You can melt down all the medals and cups I have and they wouldn't be a plating on the 24-karat friendship I felt for Lutz Long at that moment. Hitler must have gone crazy watching us embrace. The sad part of the story is I never saw Long again. He was killed in World War II. On the congratulations given by German athlete Lutz Long, a competitor in the long jump, who in some accounts he credited with giving him some friendly advice that helped him to win against him; as quoted in [http://espn.go.com/sportscentury/features/00016393.html "Owens pierced a myth" by Larry Schwartz] in ESPN SportsCentury (2005)
