Baseball Greats Quotes

Lou Gehrig (1903-1941)

There is no room in baseball for discrimination.  It is our national pastime and a game for all.

Warren Spahn (1921-2003)

What is life, after all, but a challenge?  And what better challenge can there be than the one between the pitcher and the hitter.

Lou Gehrig played his entire career with the New York Yankees.  Nicknamed the “Iron Horse” because he played in a then-record 2,130 consecutive games, Gehrig was the Yankees first baseman for 17 seasons.  He was also a player who displayed outstanding character and integrity.  He was elected to the baseball Hall of Fame in 1939.

Pitcher Warren Spahn played 22 seasons, with all but one being with the Boston/Milwaukee Braves.  A hallmark of his career was his longevity, especially for a pitcher to play in so many seasons.  He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1973.  During World War II, he served his country in the United States Army.

Heart’s Reflections

Looking through honest lens

Working from novel ways

Encouraging chorus

Filling every hour with praise

 

Setting aside worries

Embracing revisions

Writing life’s next chapter

Seeing tomorrow’s vision

 

Stepping forward with hope

Gazing at clouds afar

Embracing each treasure

Reaching for another star

 

Tasting sweeter moments

Moving from perfection

Pursuing unique path

Mirroring heart’s reflections

Hannah Arendt Quotes

We are free to change the world and start something new in it.

Storytelling reveals meaning without committing the error of defining it.

Hannah Arendt (1906-1975) was a German-born philosopher and author.  With the help of others, she managed to escape the Holocaust, and her journey brought her to the United States in 1941.
