„Tennis taught me so many lessons in life. One of the things it taught me is that every ball that comes to me, I have to make a decision. I have to accept responsibility for the consequences every time I hit a ball.“

„Every home run gives me the deepest personal thrill, although I've hit droves. Last year at Lincoln I hit 66, yet it gave me the deepest personal thrill every time I seen that ball flying nine miles out of the park.“

—  Dick Stuart American baseball player 1932 - 2002

As quoted in "The Man Who Hit Too Many Home Runs" https://books.google.com/books?id=UD8EAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA85&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjm9ZTw6JXQAhVH1CYKHazgBPcQ6AEIFDAA#v=onepage&q=%22Every%20home%20run%22&f=false by Mark Harris, in Life (September 2, 1957), p. 86

„I hit the ball and I slip at home plate and they fine me $650. First time up I hit a homer one-handed. I just limped around the bases.“

Контексте: The 100 grand right fielder revealed that Danny Murtaugh once fined him $650 when he did not run after hitting a ball to the shortstop. He never explained how Murtaugh reached the $650 figure. "I hit the ball and I slip at home plate and they fine me $650. First time up I hit a homer one-handed. I just limped around the bases."

„One thing life has taught me: if you are interested, you never have to look for new interests. They come to you.“

—  Eleanor Roosevelt American politician, diplomat, and activist, and First Lady of the United States 1884 - 1962

Источник: You Learn by Living (1960), p. 14
Контексте: One thing life has taught me: if you are interested, you never have to look for new interests. They come to you. … All you need to do is to be curious, receptive, eager for experience. And there's one strange thing: when you are genuinely interested in one thing, it will always lead to something else.

„I feel better now than I did at any time last season; the shoulder really hurt me bad last year. The left shoulder still gives me some trouble. It makes me swing differently. I have to adjust. Sometimes I find I'm over-cutting the ball. That is not my natural style. I used to swing and I just knew I could hit the ball hard. I knew when I could hit to right field, when I could pull. Now it's different. I have to force myself more than I ever did. Maybe it's because I'm getting old. Maybe.“

—  Roberto Clemente Puerto Rican baseball player 1934 - 1972

„I have been telling you, from alpha to omega, what is the one great thing the sigil taught me — that everything in life is miraculous.“

—  James Branch Cabell, книга The Cream of the Jest

The Epilogue : Which is the proper ending of all comedies; and heralds, it may be, an afterpiece.
The Cream of the Jest (1917)
Контексте: I have been telling you, from alpha to omega, what is the one great thing the sigil taught me — that everything in life is miraculous. For the sigil taught me that it rests within the power of each of us to awaken at will from a dragging nightmare of life made up of unimportant tasks and tedious useless little habits, to see life as it really is, and to rejoice in its exquisite wonderfulness. If the sigil were proved to be the top of a tomato-can, it would not alter that big fact, nor my fixed faith. No Harrowby, the common names we call things by do not matter — except to show how very dull we are...

„When they have their hands on their knees, that's when they're tired. If I get the ball enough times, something’s going to give – me or the defense.“
