10 Babe Ruth Quotes on what it takes to be great

    1. Never let the fear of striking out keep you from swinging.

    2. If it wasn't for baseball, I'd be in either the penitentiary or the cemetery.

    3. All ball players should quit when it starts to feel as if all the baselines run uphill.

    4. There’s only one answer to be made to the young fellow who is asking constantly for advice as to how to hit. The answer is: “Pick out a good one and sock it!”

    5. Don't ever forget two things I'm going to tell you. One, don't believe everything that's written about you. Two, don't pick up too many checks.

    6. My idea of a real ball player is the fellow who can take the bad breaks with a grin and come up fighting.

    7. A good player never stops until he's actually out…

    It's been much the same with almost every great man you could name. He kept plugging when everybody said his chances of making first base were nil. You just can’t beat the person who never gives up.

    8. I swing big, with everything I've got. I hit big or I miss big. I like to live as big as I can.

    9. 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.

    10. Baseball changes through the years. It gets milder.
