''Closest thing to dying that I know of,''
Ali said afterward.
"Everyone was telling me to go to the hospital,
but I had waited so long for my driving test I was determined to do it...
I didn't dare tell the examiner in case he made me cancel the test."

Integrity is for us, as well.
"The greatest want of the world is the want of men —
men who will not be bought or sold,
men who in their inmost souls are true and honest,
men who do not fear to call sin by its right name,
men whose conscience is true to duty as the needle to the pole,
men who will stand for the right though the heavens fall.
"I said something on TV about a movie star.
He's a movie star without a career but ...
I sort of made fun of some movies he made a long time ago.
I get a call from my husband: "What did you do?"
He said, "You should write an apology!"
I said, "Why?

I love it when my husband gets in the car

It wasn't called an urban crisis then;
it was just two groups of people
trying to kill each other.
Finally the cops would come on horses
and in their clanging paddy wagons and break it up.
They were all Irish and they hated both sides,
so they'd crack Polish and Jewish heads equally.
The melting pot in action.
You don't have that hostility in Chicago anymore;
now Italians, Poles, Jews and Irish
have all joined up
and buried the hatchet -
in the blacks.
But in those days, every ethnic group
was at each other's throat.
Anyway, when I were a lad, we used to 'ave to make capacitors from cardboard boxes,
and gravel we'd scraped from't road wi' tongue...
