QUOTES ABOUT HIM

"Jimmy has never liked surprises. If something was planned, he wanted to know if it had been done, and if it hadn't, he wanted to know why, and then put it on the next day's schedule. He's a great man for schedules."--Jody Powell, Carter's press secretary

"What he needs to do is get out and fish some. . . . He's just getting more paperwork than he ought to be handling."--Charles Kirbo, Carter's close friend and adviser, 1977

In Iowa he had both the abortion vote and the antiabortion vote, he had labor and anti-labor. He had opposites on all sides. In politics, you can't do that, but he's done it."--Rep. Morris Udall, 1976

"I see a sincere man. Carter loves people, and that means all people. I know the man's heart and his intent."--Rev. Martin Luther King, Sr.
