"I am innocent of any involvement in any conspiracy to abduct, kill or bury Mrs. McConville. I have worked hard with others to have this injustice redressed." — Sinn Fein party leader Gerry Adams after he was released without charge after police questioning over his alleged involvement in a decades-old IRA killing of Jean McConville, a Belfast mother of 10.



"It just went crashing down. Everyone was freaking out. We heard this huge clatter and then we just heard the girls scream." — Sydney Bragg, 14, who witnessed a circus accident in Providence, Rhode Island, that sent eight acrobats plummeting to the ground.


"You just do something. I knew they (the players) were being pulled in a thousand directions and I just thought, 'I don't care what we do. Let's do it together as a group.' ... It wasn't a rallying campaign for anything, anybody outside the team." — Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers, who coined the phrase "We Are One," which has been a rallying cry for the NBA and its fans.
