„I decided to pick out the greatest hitter to watch and study, and Jackson was good enough for me.“

—  Babe Ruth American baseball player 1895 - 1948
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. On Shoeless Joe Jackson, as quoted in "The Sportlight" http://www.mediafire.com/view/mazvkq3hy6g68vp/Rice%2C%20Grantland.%20The%20Sportlight.%20The%20Daily%20Boston%20Globe.%20December%2016%2C%201932..jpg by Grantland Rice, in The Daily Boston Globe (December 16, 1932), p. 40

„I wore that because it makes me look beautiful. I stare at myself in the mirror and I think, "Wow, I'm really great-looking." ... I think I'm the greatest, anyway.“

„I'm just a ballplayer, not a sports writer. I don't compare 'em; I just catch 'em.“

—  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
