On accepting loss
Learn how to accept the loss without being defeated. - Phil Niekro
How's that for an idea? I watched a documentary tonight called Knuckleball! and it told the story of - surprise! - knuckleball pitchers in Major League Baseball. As a devout Red Sox fan, it was fascinating. I also never contemplated the history of the pitch and how there were other knuckleball pitchers prior to Tim Wakefield.
But I loved that quote because like any wise idea, it crosses over into all avenues of life.
Don't let the losses defeat you.
