Two quotes -

These speak to me today.


Baseball teaches us, or has taught most of us, how to deal with failure. We learn at a very young age that failure is the norm in baseball and, precisely because we have failed, we hold in high regard those who fail less often - those who hit safely in one out of three chances and become star players.  I also find it fascinating that baseball alone in sport, considers errors to be part of the game, part of its rigorous truth.

- Francis T. Vincent, Jr.
Commissioner of Baseball




Kobun

Hotei didn't need a zafu,
saying that his ass was sufficient.
The head's a cloud anchor
that the feet must follow.
Travel light, he said,
or don't travel at all.
