MEDIATION QUOTE OF THE WEEK April 3, 2006

Baseball quotes in honor of Opening Day for Major League Baseball(In the interests of full disclosure, only one of the following quotes has anything to do with the themes typically associated with “Mediation Quote of the Week”.)

Today is Opening Day–New Year’s Day for baseball fans. In celebration, here are three of my favorite baseball quotes:

The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, the club won’t be worth a dime.
~Babe Ruth

It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone.

~A. Bartlett Giamatti

That’s the true harbinger of spring, not crocuses or swallows returning to Capistrano, but the sound of a bat on the ball.

~Bill Veeck

Let the games begin.
