    • QUOTES (3)

      • Opening Narration: The post-war world was an era of innovation; we stood upon the threshold of a new age which was ruled by sudden change. Technical advancements in medicine, science, and electronics had a profound effect on the way we lived and thought. None of us dreamed how deeply we would be affected by those advancements even though we were close by when it all began.

      • Elizabeth: Maybe you'll have your own television show one day?
        John-Boy: Um, I'd like that, Elizabeth.
        Elizabeth: What would you call it?
        John-Boy: I don't know. Since I write best about this family, I guess I'd call it The Waltons.

      • Closing Narration: The Board of Trustees did decide to develop a Television Department at Boatwright. Not only did it enable me to complete my book, but it was a turning point in my career as a writer. Television became the most awesome tool in mass communication ever to be developed, and all our lives on and off Walton's Mountain were never to be the same.
