Angelica Bridges - Bridges to Babylon
Even as a toddler, Angelica Bridges had a curious eye for the boy next door. "I just could not keep my clothes on," she once explained. "My mom would dress me up in a T-shirt and panties, and the minute I was out the door, the panties and the T-shirt would be in a pile on the front yard—and my little pink butt would be running down the gravel road to the neighbor boy's house."

Alexander Graham Bell's Last Words
As professor of vocal physiology at Boston University, Alexander Graham Bell taught many deaf students, including Helen Keller and his future wife Mabel Hubbard (with whom he lived for forty-five years). One day while tending to her husband after a long illness, Mabel whispered, "Don't leave me." By way of reply, Bell traced the sign for "No"—and promptly expired.[When Bell died on August 4, 1922, millions of telephones across North America (those served by the Bell System) went silent for one minute in his honor.]

20-20 Vision?
At a state banquet one day, Mrs. Sargent Shriver, the wife of the US ambassador to France, found herself seated beside French president Charles de Gaulle. Such was her affection for the man that, as the meal drew to a close, she remarked, "Mr. President, I only regret that you're not twenty years younger and that I'm not twenty years younger." Some time later, Mrs. Shriver casually repeated the remark to Mme de Gaulle. "Ah, yes, Mrs. Shriver," the president's wife replied, "but remember, I would then be twenty years younger too!"
