Personal Quote:

I'm a great believer in people, and their untapped potential. It's obvious we can't all be a Gully Foyle, but most of us energize at such a low level, so far short of our real capabilities, we could all be more, do more. Today, in America, I think everyone needs a good kick in the ass, to get them doing things. [Interview with Charles Platt in New Worlds Quarterly, 1972] See more »

Trivia:

He was a fencer while at college. The February 25, 1934, New York Times reports that the Princeton University fencing team beat the University of Pennsylvania team in a match that day, but that "Captain Alfred Bester of New York gained two epee victories for the Red and Blue." See more »
