Personal Quote:

[referring to his childhood when his mother took him to revival meetings in search of a cure for his polio] Dragging myself up to the pulpit was embarrassing enough. It was the crawling back down the aisle that was so humiliating.


Both legs were crippled by a childhood case of polio. However, he refused to use a wheelchair and learned to get around using crutches or canes. See more »
