Anyone who isn’t confused really doesn’t understand the situation.

Everyone is a prisoner of his own experiences. No one can eliminate prejudices – just recognize them.

Just because your voice reaches halfway around the world doesn’t mean you are wiser than when it reached only to the end of the bar.

No one can terrorize a whole nation, unless we are all his accomplices.

The obscure we see eventually. The completely obvious, it seems, takes longer.

The speed of communications is wondrous to behold. It is also true that speed can multiply the distribution of information that we know to be untrue.

Good night, and good luck.
Edward R. Murrow
