“Three things tell a man: his eyes, his friends and his favorite quotes.”
Lincoln Steffens (American Journalist)
Joseph Lincoln Steffens was an American journalist and one of the most famous and influential practitioners of the journalistic style called muckraking. He is also known for his 1921 statement, upon his return from the Soviet Union: "I have been over into the future, and it works."
A better known version of his famous quote, "I've seen the future, and it works," can be found on the title page of the 1933 edition of Red Virtue, written by his wife, Ella Winter.
