I've always tried to do my best on the ball field. I can't do any more than that. I always try to give one hundred percent; and if my team loses, I come back and give one hundred percent the next day.
Best Quotes about Effort
Always make a total effort, even when the odds are against you.
It is vain to do with more what can be done with less.
Occam, William Of
Whenever a man does the best he can, then that is all he can do.
Truman, Harry S
Start early and begin raising the bar throughout the day.
Welcome the task that makes you go beyond yourself.
Life does not require us to make good; it asks only that we give our best at each level of experience.
Things don't turn up in this world until somebody turns them up.
Garfield, James A.
You have to give 100 percent in the first half of the game. If that isn't enough, in the second half, you have to give what is left.
If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.
Effort is only effort when it begins to hurt.
Gasset, Jose Ortega Y
The healthiest competition occurs when average people win by putting above average effort.
Effort only fully releases its reward after a person refuses to quit.
Do your duty, that is best; leave unto the Lord the rest.
Mckay, David O.
The grass may be greener on the other side of the fence, but you still have to mow it.
Be true to the best you know. This is your high ideal. If you do your best, you cannot do more.
Dresses, H. W.
The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all. [Ecclesiastes 9:11]
The secret of the truly successful, I believe, is that they learned very early in life how not to be busy. They saw through that adage, repeated to me so often in childhood, that anything worth doing is worth doing well. The truth is, many things are worth doing only in the most slovenly, halfhearted fashion possible, and many other things are not worth doing at all.
If you want something done, ask a busy person to do it. The more things you do, the more you can do.
Racing takes everything you've got -- intellectually, emotionally, physically -- and then you have to find about ten percent more and use that too.
Have you ever watched a stonecutter at work? He will hammer away at a rock for perhaps a 100 times without a crack showing in it. Then, on the 101st blow, it will split in two. It is not that blow alone which accomplished the result, but the 100 others that went before as well.
You have to accept whatever comes and the only important thing is that you meet it with the best you have to give.
There's no taking trout with dry breeches.
Cervantes, Miguel De
I would rather earn 1% off a 100 people's efforts than 100% of my own efforts.
Rockefeller, John D.
I made up my mind long ago that life was too short to do anything for myself that I could pay others to do for me.
Maugham, W. Somerset
If you have enough push, you don't have to worry about the pull.
Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.
Kennedy, John F.
The bitter and the sweet come from the outside, the hard from within, from one's own efforts.
About the only thing that comes without effort is old age..
Despite the success cult, men are most deeply moved not by the reaching of the goal but by the grandness of the effort involved in getting there -- or failing to get there.
When we do the best we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another.
I want to be remembered as the guy who gave his all whenever he was on the field.
If your efforts are sometimes greeted with indifference, don't lose heart. The sun puts on a wonderful show at daybreak, yet most of the people in the audience go on sleeping.
Swing hard, in case they throw the ball where you're swinging.
In the past, those who foolishly sought power by riding on the back of the tiger ended up inside.
Kennedy, John F.
Infatuated, half through conceit, half through love of my art, I achieve the impossible working as no one else ever works.
The one thing that matters is the effort.
Saint-Exupery, Antoine De
Freedom from effort in the present merely means that there has been effort stored up in the past.
It is not the truth that a man possesses, or believes that he possesses, but the earnest effort which he puts forward to reach the truth, which constitutes the worth of a man. For it is not by the possession, but the search after truth that he enlarges his power, wherein alone consists his ever-increasing perfection.
Much effort, much prosperity.
Inscribe all human effort with one word, artistry's haunting curse, the Incomplete!
But the effort, the effort! And as the marrow is eaten out of a man's bones and the soul out of his belly, contending with the strange rapacity of savage life, the lower stage of creation, he cannot make the effort any more.
Lawrence, D. H.
If you torture data long enough, it will tell you anything you want !
The Buddhas do but tell the way; it is for you to swelter at the task.
The smallest effort is not lost. Each wavelet on the ocean tost aids in the ebb-tide or the flow; each rain-drop makes some floweret blow; each struggle lessens human woe.
Doing your own thing is a generous act. Being gifted creates obligations, which means you owe the world your best effort at the work you love. You too are a natural resource.
Success is almost totally dependent upon drive and persistence. The extra energy required to make another effort or try another approach is the secret of winning.
For every disciplined effort there is a multiple reward.
What you can't get out of, get into wholeheartedly.
When you do something, you should burn yourself up completely, like a good bonfire, leaving no trace of yourself.
Easy DOESN'T do it.
