Ernie Banks
I like my players to be married and in debt. That's the way you motivate them.
Banks quotes
He never complained about his team's bad luck or bad talent, never stopped playing the game for joy, never stopped giving his all, never lost his proud demeanor, and never acted like anything but a winner. He was a symbol of the Cubs' fans undiminishing resilience. If he could be happy to come to the park each afternoon, then so could we.
You must try to generate happiness within yourself. If you aren't happy in one place, chances are you won't be happy anyplace.

Banks Ernie quotes
It's a great day for a ball game; let's play two!
Banks Ernie
His wrists are the secret of (Ernie) Banks' success. Instead of taking the big Ruthian type swing of the lively ball era, he swings his bat as if it were a buggy whip, striking at the ball with the reflexive swiftness of a serpent's tongue.
Ernie Banks quotes
Did you hear that? I didn't hear anything. Put that question another way.
Ernie Banks
The only way to prove that you're a good sport is to lose.
