Time should make enemies and Life should make friends.
To see, and to show, is the mission now undertaken by Life.
I became a journalist to come as close as possible to the heart of the world.
Show me a man who claims he is objective and I'll show you a man with illusions.
Publishing is a business, but journalism never was and is not essentially a business. Nor is it a profession.
There are men who can write poetry, and there are men who can read balance sheets. The men who can read balance sheets cannot write.
Business, more than any other occupation, is a continual dealing with the future; it is a continual calculation, an instinctive exercise in foresight.
I suggest that what we want to do is not to leave to posterity a great institution, but to leave behind a great tradition of journalism ably practiced in our time.
