  • King is probably one of three men of this century that I'll call heroic. A fantastic man as far as I'm concerned, for all that he did.
    • In an interview with Patricia Rickels, as quoted in John Lowe (1995) Conversations with Ernest Gaines, University Press of Mississippi, p. 131
  • I think I'm a very religious person. I think I believe in God as much as any man does. I don't only believe in God, I know there's God.
  • I would think a faith in God is one thing. I think that if we could change the whole world and keep the land is another thing. Change things yet keep keep the relationship is another thing.
