 "After eleven years in Major League Baseball, I have learned a great deal about the game of life.  First, you must prepare yourself for the contest - not enough people are prepared for the challenges of life.  Second, you must be disciplined - daily practice is what it takes to be successful.  Third, determination in a life of good days and bad days, good seasons and bad seasons - giving up cannot be part of your thinking.  But lastly, after you have accomplished all of these, you will lose without knowing and understanding God.”
