Zitat des Tages von Satchel Paige:
If your stomach disputes you, lie down and pacify it with cool thoughts.
Airplanes may kill you, but they ain't likely to hurt you.
I never rush myself. See, they can't start the game without me.
It's funny what a few no-hitters do for a body.
My feet ain't got nothing to do with my nickname, but when folks get it in their heads that a feller's got big feet, soon the feet start looking big.
Avoid fried foods, which angry up the blood.
Money and women. They're two of the strongest things in the world. The things you do for a woman you wouldn't do for anything else. Same with money.
I've said it once and I'll say it a a hundred times, I'm forty-four years old.
Don't pray when it rains if you don't pray when the sun shines.
I never threw an illegal pitch. The trouble is, once in a while I toss one that ain't never been seen by this generation.
Ain't no man can avoid being born average, but there ain't no man got to be common.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly one's own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
Avoid running at all times.
The only change is that baseball has turned Paige from a second class citizen to a second class immortal.
When a batter swings and I see his knees move, I can tell just what his weaknesses are then I just put the ball where I know he can't hit it.
I don't generally like running. I believe in training by rising gently up and down from the bench.
Just take the ball and throw it where you want to. Throw strikes. Home plate don't move.
Age is a case of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it don't matter.
I ain't ever had a job, I just always played baseball.
If a man can beat you, walk him.
I was born in August, no July, 1908.
Work like you don't need the money. Love like you've never been hurt. Dance like nobody's watching.
