"I was completely in another world, you know? So what I was hearing, I wasn't really hearing like you would normally be hearing. It was more like a feeling of sound. And I did hear - in that soup of sound - I did hear boats - beautiful, like people leaving for a faraway country. And I did hear these crazy sirens, well known in New York, with police and ambulances. And I did hear some kind of wave of sound, what I'm sure was the traffic stopping and the crowd looking up."
-- Philippe Petit, French performance artist who walked a tightrope strung between the Twin Towers in 1974
"First time... I come here and step up all the way from up here, say 111 floors. That day I was nervous... All of us crazy, yes. On observation deck, lines of people to take pictures, calling to us 'you're crazy!'"
-- Camaj Rojo, one of the window washers at the World Trade Center
"I started at three dollars an hour, which was still a lot of money for a summer job. Whoever had the idea must have been someone with an incredible amount of insight to think that you could find young girls like this, and instill us with that sense that we were almost as invincible as the building. We were the building. We were the World Trade Center."
-- Elizabeth English, Building Stewardess for the Port Authority
"It was so much a part of our lives, and everybody felt the same way that I did. When you worked on it, you say, this will be here 100, 200, 500 years from now."
-- Guy Tozzoli, former head of the World Trade Center
