#Quote
1[on being awarded the Order of the British Empire] I'll tell you something odd. I grew up a monarchist in Iran. It was all I knew. And I respected the British monarchy. But in the interim I've tried to put the spotlight on people who are struggling for their rights, or the right to stay alive, and that really affected me when it came to standing in from of the Queen to receive the honor. Because I couldn't curtsy - even though I grew up curtsying. I bowed instead.
2If I had been reporting in World War II, would I have had to say, in the name of objectivity, 'Poor Mr. Hitler, he has a point'? No, you don't play footsie with the most appalling crimes known to humanity. I realized in Bosnia that, even if it it means you're going to be accused of not being fair, you have to tell the truth.
3[on being a war correspondent] There's a certain kind of person who's attracted to being an astro-physicist or a soldier or taking risks at sports. We need the adrenaline to keep us safe. We're not heroin addicts. If you want us to be the eyes and ears in our field - not people spinning in the blogosphere or sitting in armchairs opining about what's going on in the rest of the world - you need people who are willing to go to the battlefield.
4U.S. soldiers, with whom I now have more than a passing acquaintance, joke that they track my movements in order to know where they will be deployed next.
5It occurred to me that I have spent almost every working day of the past ten years living in a state of repressed fear.
6But 17 years ago, I arrived at CNN with a suitcase, with my bicycle, and with about 100 dollars.
