Satchel Paige
There ain't no man can avoid being born average. But there ain't no man got to be common.
Paige quotes
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.
I ain't as fast as I used to be, but I'm a better pitcher. I used to overpower them; now I out-cute them.

Paige Satchel quotes
I never threw an illegal pitch. The trouble is, once in a while I toss one that ain't never been seen by this generation.
Paige Satchel
Don't go to college, unless to get knowledge.
Satchel Paige quotes
Don't pray when it rains if you don't pray when the sun shines.
Satchel Paige
They said I was the greatest pitcher they ever saw... I couldn’t understand why they couldn’t give me no justice.
