“I can’t recite the chronology or elaborate on the facts. I can’t explain the reasons or defend how we lived our lives. What I can tell you is how the events of 1933 sowed the seeds that fundamentally changed our future, that there was little hand-wringing or emotion, that circumstances were beyond control, that there was no recourse or appeal. I can tell you that events were incremental, that the unbelievable became the believable and, ultimately, the normal.”

“Life does find a way to create a balance somewhere between smiles and tears. And, like a pendulum’s swing, life seldom stays in one place. Life keeps on moving until, one day, it stops.”— Ralph Webster
