“I want to thank my parents for letting me play baseball. I'm thankful I had baseball knuckles and couldn't become a dentist...I got $2,100 a year when I started in the big league, and they get more money now. ...I chased the balls that Babe Ruth hit.”
“It's a troublesome world. All the people who're in it
are troubled with troubles almost every minute.
You ought to be thankful, a whole heaping lot,
for the places and people you're lucky you're not.”
