Barbara Walters

“You will—I hope not—but you will perhaps have some failure. And you will be able to go on, add a new chapter, have a more interesting time, even. When I went to ABC to be the first female co-anchor of a network news program, I was a total flop. The headlines in the papers said, ‘Barbara Walters: a flop’. And I was in anguish. But the best thing that happened to me was that I had to work my way back. That’s when I did all the interviews that we’ve talked about. If you have a failure, you will rise, you will be fine, you will work your way back. Do not sink into, ‘Why me? Woe is me. It’s not my fault…'”

—Barbara Walters, news correspondent
