It is better to be an outcast, a stranger in one’s own country, than an outcast from one’s self. It is better to see what is about to befall us and to resist than to retreat into the fantasies embraced by a nation of the blind.

Satchel Paige's Rules for Living

"Work like you don't need the money. Love like you've never been hurt. Dance like nobody's watching."
Satchel Paige got paid for throwing a baseball. He was past 40 before he made the Major Leagues, spending most of his career playing in the Negro Leagues. He was a character also known for his quotes. These 'Rules for Living' were taken from his autobiography, Maybe I'll Pitch Forever (as told to David Lipman, 1962):
"Avoid fried meats which angry up the blood."
"If your stomach disputes you, lie down and pacify it with cool thoughts."
"Keep the juices flowing by jangling around gently as you move."
"Go very light on the vices, such as carrying on in society — the social ramble ain't restful."
"Avoid running at all times."
"And don't look back — something might be gaining on you."
