  2. Bernard Weisberger, America Afire:

  3. David Harris:

    I could write a book on our frustration in literally hundreds of meetings with European leaders who, however otherwise well intentioned, refused to grasp the problem staring them -- the anti-Semitic problem staring them in the face, they ducked it they avoided it ... and now 15 years later the problem is so big and so deadly and so rooted that it's going to take a lot more than one eloquent speech by a president or a prime minister.

  4. W. Somerset Maugham:

    I have an idea that some men are born out of their due place. Accident has cast them amid certain surroundings, but they have always a nostalgia for a home they know not. They are strangers at their birthplace, and the leafy lanes they have known from childhood or the populous streets in which they have played, remain but a place of passage. They may spend their whole lives aliens among their kindred and remain aloof among the only scenes they have ever knows. Perhaps it is this sense of strangeness that sends men far and wide in the search for something permanent, to which they may attach themselves. Perhaps some deep-rooted atavism urges the wanderer back to lands which his ancestors left in the dim beginnings of history. Sometimes a man hits upon a place to which he mysteriously feels that he belongs. Here is the home he sought, and he will settle amid scenes that he has never seen before, among men he has never known, as though they were familiar to him from his birth. Here at last he finds rest.

  5. President Barack Obama:

    There have been some blind spots that are rooted not just in professional football but dating back into college football and certain behaviors have been tolerated historically that really should not have been tolerated, hopefully this has been a wakeup call and people start thinking about this a little more systematically.
