I want to save lives, including my own, but Cambodians believe we just rent this body. It is just a house for the spirit, and if the house is full of termites, it is time to leave.

"I'm a very lucky man to have had Pran as my reporting partner and even luckier that we came to call each other brother.

"Pran reminds us of a special category of journalistic heroism--the local partner, the stringer, the interpreter, the driver, the fixer, who knows the ropes, who makes your work possible, who often becomes your friend, who may save your life, who shares little of the glory, and who risks so much more than you do,

- Bill Keller"
