Quotations of the day
By The Associated Press
"I wasn't thinking too straight. I didn't have anything elegant to say. All I could say was `Oh, my God,' and that was that." - Randy Schekman, of the University of California, Berkeley, after he was one of three researchers to win the Nobel Prize in medicine for their work on cells.
"Sometimes you have a feeling that the water is weird. But everyone was just so happy. I was lying on my board, paddling around just waiting for a wave set." - Surfer Jay Scrivner, a 45-year-old college English teacher, whose thigh was bit by a great white shark in Northern California.
