Satchel Paige has some of my favorite quotes:
Age is mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.
Don't look back: Something may be gaining on you.
How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?
Sometimes I sits and thinks, and sometimes I just sits.
Just take the ball and throw it where you want to. Throw strikes. Home plate don't move.
If you tell a lie, always rehearse it. If it don't sound good to you, it won't sound good to anybody.
"I ain't ever had a job, I just always played baseball."
"I don't generally like running. I believe in training by rising gently up and down from the bench."
"I never rush myself. See, they can't start the game without me."
"I use my single windup, my double windup, my triple windup, my hesitation windup, my no windup. I also use my step-n-pitch-it, my submariner, my sidearmer and my bat dodger. Man's got to do what he's got to do."
"If a man can beat you, walk him."
