"When I first met Whitney in 1981-82, she was about 19 or 20 and unknown. I went into Sweetwater's, and she was singing 'The Greatest Love of All' just as I walked in, and that meant something to me. Two and a half years later when I was doing Teddy Pendergrass there was a duet and everybody wanted me to use this or that known person. Only because I had heard Whitney singing 'The Greatest Love of All'. I chose her." - Michael Masser (songwriter)
''Muhammad Ali hadn't believed in the war in Vietnam and had refused to fight in it. He won that battle through the legal system. Still, he lost everything, including his title. But Ali retained the most important thing of all: his dignity.'' - Michael Masser (songwriter)
''This is my favourite song of my career.'' - Whitney Houston
