I love this quote…it demonstrates how baseball imitates life!
In the end, it comes down to throwing one pitch after another, and seeing what happens. With each new consequence, the game begins to take shape. Avery Brooks as Commander Sisko in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Fashion can be bought. Style one must possess. Edna Woolman Chase
Fashion changes, but style endures. Coco Chanel
To be fair, this morning, I didn’t think today was going to be a bad day; I just thought it was going to be a run-of-the-mill Monday. That sure isn’t how it turned out, though…it was a pretty terrible day.
I could tell it was going to be a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst
This line always makes me laugh!
Okay, let’s make like a bread truck and haul buns ladies. Rosie O’Donnell as Doris Murphy in A League of Their Own
It’s supposed to be hard. If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. The hard… is what makes it great. Tom Hanks as Jimmy Dugan in A League of Their Own
You’re damaging my calm, Chuck. Adam Baldwin as John Casey in Chuck
Be not afeard; the isle is full of noises,
Sounds and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not.
Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
Will hum about mine ears, and sometime voices
That, if I then had waked after long sleep,
Will make me sleep again: and then, in dreaming,
The clouds methought would open and show riches
Ready to drop upon me that, when I waked,
I cried to dream again. William Shakespeare, The Tempest
I’m nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there’s a pair of us — don’t tell!
They’d banish us; you know!
How dreary to be somebody!
How public like a frog
To tell one’s name the livelong day
To an admiring bog! Emily Dickinson
I guess this is just another lost cause Mr. Paine. All you people don’t know about lost causes. Mr. Paine does. He said once they were the only causes worth fighting for and he fought for them once. For the only reason any man ever fights for them. Because of just one plain simple rule. Love thy neighbor. And in this world today of great hatred a man who knows that rule has a great trust. You know that rule Mr. Paine and I loved you for it just as my father did. And you know that you fight harder for the lost causes than for any others. Yes you’d even die for them. Like a man we both knew Mr. Paine. You think I’m licked. You all think I’m licked. Well I’m not licked. And I’m gonna stay right here and fight for this lost cause. Even if this room gets filled with lies like these. And the Taylors and all their armies come marching into this place. Somebody will listen to me. James Stewart as Jefferson Smith in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
