"I don't think I'm an idealist. I'm a realist. And I see the progress. The progress has been remarkable. Look at the emancipation of woman in my lifetime. You're sitting here as a female. Look what's happened to the same-sex marriages. To tell somebody a man can become a woman, a woman can become a man, and a man can marry a man, they would have said, 'You're crazy.' But it's a reality today. So the world is changing. And you shouldn't -- you know -- be despairing because it's never happened before. Nothing new ever happened before." -- Benjamin Ferencz, last surviving Nuremburg prosecutor, interviewed by Lesley Stahl on the CBS television program 60 Minutes, aired 2017-05-07
