As the days went on, I didn't mind the games.
by Al Kaline

As the days went on, I didn't mind the games.
In fact, I looked forward to them.
That was the easiest part of all.
I couldn't wait to get to the ballpark I'd be the first
one there and I was willing to do anything.
I think that's why the veterans liked me.
- Al Kaline

Switching to the outfield was the best break I ever got.
- Al Kaline

I was very, very shocked about Cooperstown.
I thought my chances were fairly good,
but I tried to stay low key about it,
not too high and not too low.
That was the way I played, too.
- Al Kaline

when that play comes up during the regular season that
you're able to complete it and do it the right way.

What gets me upset about with the newer players is their lack of intensity.
They tend to go through the motions a little bit.
They don't understand that you've got to practice the way you play.
- Al Kaline

I started in for the ball but I just couldn't get it.
I should have caught it because I was used to catching
everything on the sandlots.
But they hit the ball a lot harder in the major leagues
and I just couldn't reach the ball this time.
- Al Kaline

I didn't know who was on the team, but I saw every
eye as I walked down the aisle.
It looked like a thousand eyes were staring right at me saying,
'Who is this young punk?' I just kept my eyes straight ahead.

It hurt me a great deal.
It put a lot of pressure on me because I was at a young
age and the writers around here and throughout the
league starting comparing me to Cobb.
It put a lot of pressure on me.
- Al Kaline

I'll never forget that first night with the team.
Going to the ballpark on the bus was the hardest 30 minutes of my life.
I had to walk down that aisle between all the players.
I really didn't know too much about the Detroit Tigers at that time.
- Al Kaline

All of a sudden I'm in the major leagues and we're
traveling from town to town.
I see the other players dressing different every day.
I've got only one suit and I keep wearing it over and over.
I'm really embarrassed.
- Al Kaline

This is my wish for you:
Comfort on difficult days,
Smiles when sadness intrudes,
Rainbows to follow the clouds,
Laughter to kiss your lips,
Sunsets to warm your heart,
Hugs when spirits sag,
Beauty for your eyes to see,
Friendships to brighten your being,
Faith so that you can believe,
Confidence for when you doubt,
Courage to know yourself,
Patience to accept the truth,
Love to complete your life.
- Anonymous

May love and laughter light your days,

bring the best to you and yours.

When we hate our enemies, we are
giving them power over us:
power over our sleep, our appetites,
our blood pressure, our health, and our happiness.
Our enemies would dance with joy if only
they knew how they were worrying us,
lacerating us, and getting even with us!
Our hate is not hurting them at all,
but our hate is turning our own days
and nights into a hellish turmoil.
- Dale Carnegie

In your days - things like this happen to you...
You get a tap, a nudge, a gentle shake,
and life whispers to you, "I know you're tired -
but I don't want you to miss this."
- Mary Anne Radmacher

Why live?
Adding one to my count of days, or postponing
a feared death by another day do not inspire me.
I live to experience something new each day -
to learn something new, meet a new friend,
bring joy into someone's life,
feel the wind newly on my skin,
touch a new fear, a new anger,
and with focused intent and good fortune,
find an ample measure of my own joy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The power of intuitive understanding
will protect you from harm until the end of your days.
- Lao Tzu

A day spent without the sight or sound of beauty,
the contemplation of mystery,
or the search of truth or perfection
is a poverty-stricken day; and a succession
of such days is fatal to human life.
- Lewis Mumford

A sloth lives a pretty good life, s-l-o-w-l-y.
Maybe we have something to learn from him.
Some days, being sloth-like may be just what you need
to avoid being consumed by urgency.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I do not hold fear about what is happening in the world.
I am responsible for how I conduct myself in the events of my days,
and endeavor to not dwell in fear about anything.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Old friends pass away, new friends appear.
It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives.
The important thing is to make it meaningful:
a meaningful friend - or a meaningful day.
- Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama

There are three hundred and sixty-four days
when you might get un-birthday presents,
and only one for birthday presents, you know.
- Lewis Carroll

Life is a journey. It is not a race to test
who can finish first or who can end up with the most loot.
Rather, life is best enjoyed as a meander -
watching the view to left and right - above and below -
as the days slowly move past in dress review.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Your worst days are never so bad
that you are beyond the reach of God's grace.
And your best days are never so good
that you are beyond the need of God's grace.
- Anonymous

he used to frequently take my advice.

Life repeats itself mindlessly -
unless you become mindful, it will go on repeating like a wheel.
That's why Buddhists call it the wheel of life and death,
the wheel of time.
It moves like a wheel: birth is followed by death,
death is followed by birth;
love is followed by hate, hate is followed by love;
success is followed by failure,
failure is followed by success. Just see!
If you can watch just for a few days,
you will see a pattern emerging, a wheel pattern.
One day, a fine morning, you are feeling so good and so happy,
and another day you are so dull,
so dead that you start thinking of committing suicide.
And just the other day you were so full of life,
so blissful that you were feeling thankful to God,
that you were in a mood of deep gratefulness,
and today there is great complaint
and you don't see the point why one should go on living...
And it goes on and on, but you don't see the pattern.
Once you see the pattern, you can get out of it.
- Osho

Once, during Prohibition, I was forced to live for
days on nothing but food and water.
- W. C. Fields

Some days you're the dog,
and some days you're the hydrant.
- Anonymous

Soon we'll be out amid the cold world's strife.
Soon we'll be sliding down the razor blade of life.
But as we go our sordid sep'rate ways,
We shall ne'er forget thee, thou golden college days.
Hearts full of youth,
Hearts full of truth,
Six parts gin to one part vermouth.
- Tom Lehrer - song: Bright College Days,
album: An Evening Wasted With Tom Lehrer

When a noble life has prepared old age,
it is not decline that it reveals, but the first days of immortality.
- Muriel Spark

If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day,
he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer.
But if he spends his days as a speculator,
shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time,
he is deemed an industrious and enterprising citizen.
- Henry David Thoreau

Some days just go to Hell faster than others.

Somebody forgot the corkscrew and for several days
we had to live on nothing but food and water.
