“There are few things you can’t do as long as you’re willing to apply yourself. There are many times I wish I was playing golf instead of training in miserable cold weather.

“In the second grade, they asked us what we wanted to be. I said I wanted to be a ballplayer and they laughed. In the eight grade, they asked the same question, and I said a ballplayer and they laughed a little more. By the eleventh grade, no one was laughing.” Johnny Bench

“It Is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who Is actually In the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again because there Is no effort without error and shortcomings, who knows the great devotion, who spends himself In a worthy cause, who at the best knows In the end the high achievement of triumph and who at worst, if he falls while daring greatly, knows his place shall never be with those timid and cold souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”Theodore Roosevelt
