Context: I decided to pick out the greatest hitter to watch and study, and Jackson was good enough for me. I liked the way he kept his right foot forward, being a left-handed hitter, and his left foot back. That gave him more body and shoulder power than the average hitter has.

— Willie Mays Baseball player 1931
Context: Mays said he thought maybe the Skinner catch was a bit better than yesterday's, as well as a catch he made on a ball hit this season by Gus Bell of the Cincinnati Reds. "But I don't want to compare 'em," said Willie. "I'm just a ballplayer, not a sports writer. I don't compare 'em; I just catch 'em." Reluctantly comparing his famous catch in Game 1 of the 1954 World Series to a pair of catches made during that season on May 26 https://news.google.com/newspapers?id=0akpAAAAIBAJ&sjid=Gk4EAAAAIBAJ&pg=1599%2C3418911&dq=willie-mays-made-star-tling-catch-bob-skinner and June 6 http://www.mediafire.com/view/m5bmpfxdu5ciu3m/%20.png, respectively (the latter "circus catch" made not against Bell, as per Mays' recollection, but rather Chuck Harmon, who directly preceded Bell in the lineup that day); as paraphrased and quoted in "Willie Modestly Scoffs at Raves Over Big Catch" by UPI, in Newsday (September 30, 1954), p. 95

„I don't mind if someone thinks I'm a sell out. I go to bed happy knowing I do what I do and I'm not doing anything for reasons of money, and if I were trying to pick up chicks, I'm doing a horrible job. And if I wanted to drive awesome cars, I'm doing a really bad job there too.“
— Patrick Stump American musician 1984
„I'm not a biter, I'm a writer for myself and others / I say a B. I. G. verse, I'm only biggin' up my brother / Biggin' up my borough, I'm big enough to do it / I'm that thorough, plus I know my own flow is foolish / So them rings and things you sing about, bring 'em out / It's hard to yell when the bar-rell's in your mouth“
