Words of Note

I made up my mind a long time ago

not to get too excited, no matter

which way the crowd goes. I get

paid for playing left field and for

hitting that baseball. I am not a

participant in a popularity contest.

Ted Williams, former Red Sox player

Quoted in The Saturday Evening Post

(April 10, 1954).
