Ralph Adams Cram

I once drove a pair of horses from New York to Vicksburg, and to this day I can almost map out that country as I saw it then, with its hills and valleys, villages and rivers. Yes, I naturally attribute something of my success in railroad building to the interest I take in such things.
Collis Potter Huntington
Of course, I also attribute some of my hearing loss to being in the infantry in World War II. It's probably a combination of heredity and noise exposure.

I've been accused of being old before my time more than once. It's true that I've always felt an affinity for, and been comfortable around, older people.
