Nov. 3, 1959, Van Doren Statement  

Nov. 3, 1959: "I would give almost anything I have to reverse the course of my life in the last three years. I cannot take back one word or action; the past does not change for anyone. But at least I can learn from the past. I have learned a lot in those three years -- especially in the last three weeks, I've learned a lot about my life. I've learned a lot about myself, and about the responsibilities any man has to his fellow men. I've learned a lot about good and evil. They are not always what they appear to be."
