Last quote about Smithsonian

Around the house, my father liked country and my mother was more rock & roll. I remember a lot of Johnny Cash, the Dillards and Buck Owens. Country music was just always in the background and I absorbed all of it. Also, this was in the period of the folk revival, so we had that big Smithsonian box set [The Anthology of American Folk Music] where I distinctly remember hearing the Carter Family for the first time. Their tones and that style of music really resonated with me as a kid. Early on, I wanted Social D to be the Carter Family with electric guitars.

We don't have a convincing model for FRBs at the moment. The leading model is some form of very exotic neutron star.

Mary Jo Arnoldi

Some of them are too big, some of them are too fragile and some just don't fit into the stories we are telling in the current exhibits.

James Guillochon

For most of the time we've been looking at this object, it has been growing rapidly. This tells us something unusual -- like a star twice as heavy as our Sun -- is being fed into the black hole.

LeBron James

Every professional athlete, regardless of race and gender, owes a huge debt of gratitude to Muhammad Ali. His legacy deserves to be studied and revered by every generation. I am honored to partner with the Smithsonian to celebrate one of the most influential figures in our nation's history who, along with Jackie Robinson and Jesse Owens, used the power of sports to advance our civil rights.

Howard-John Wesley

It's a beautiful thing, especially in this day and time when we're fighting to remind ourselves how important black lives are.

Donald Sparks

Hopefully this grand occasion allows the rest of the nation to come out and see a building that's not just for African-Americans, it's for all of America. I'm just elated and can't express how much joy and gratitude I have to be here today and witness history.

Robert L. Wilkins

It's been 100 years in the making. So many people have dreamed about this, fought for this and wanted this to happen.

David J. Skorton

Opening now, at a time when social and political discord remind us that racism is not, unfortunately, a thing of the past, this museum can, and I believe will, help us advance the public conversation.

Shaun Williams - National Transportation Safety Board

Remains of a bald eagle was found on the tail of the aircraft. Remains were sent to the Feather Identification Lab at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C. There, they were able to determine that the portions of feather and other material came from an immature bald eagle.

Steve Brusatte

Timurlengia would be a frightening creature, in the same way that a lion is pretty frightening to us. But if you were somehow transported into an alternate dimension and had a choice between facing down a Timurlengia or a T. rex, you would go with Timurlengia anytime.

Barack Obama

This won't apply to the benefits folks get through Social Security, Medicaid or Medicare. And it won't apply to our national security including benefits for veterans. But it will apply to all other discretionary government programmes.
