• He's [Harry S. Truman] just your dad, and you love him. It's only when you grow up, and step back from him, or leave him for your own career and your own home - it's only then that you can measure his greatness and fully appreciate it. Pride reinforces love. My father was a great man.

    "On Centennial, Truman Recalled In Washington" by Martin Tolchin, May 9, 1984.
