words to live by

I'm looking for the quote. Can't find it. But I remember it well enough. Satchel Paige said give this country fifty years and everybody with any sense will be living in the south. That was over fifty years ago now. Satchel preferred the warm weather. He could have made more money in the north; but he didn't care. He's still the greatest ever, even if I can't find all his quotes on the internet.

And always remember, "don't pray when it rains if you don't pray when the sun shines."

Darn. I see he also said "avoid running at all times". Well I've managed that one for a day and a half now. What a scold this guy turned out to be!


  1. "You win a few, you lose a few. Some get rained out. But you got to dress for all of them."

    I like this one.

  2. Hello! I've stumbled upon your blog via....well, let's see...I'm not sure really. I'm bored at work, and was looking for new blogs to read. I saw yours on the blogroll of someone elses (C2 maybe?)....and here I am. :-)

    "Age is a question of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter."

    He's got quite a few good ones!! :-)

  3. Hi. I came across this site while looking for recipes for radish ale, but was sorely disappointed. but while i'm here, might I add this quote:

    "I always believed in the music we did and that's why it was uncompromising."

    wait. that was Jimmy Page. Never mind. Damn radish ale ...
