Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can.
Baseball is the only field of endeavor where a man can succeed three times out of ten and be considered a good performer.
Now, as a nation, we don't promise equal outcomes, but we were founded on the idea everybody should have an equal opportunity to succeed. No matter who you are, what you look like, where you come from, you can make it. That's an essential promise of America. Where you start should not determine where you end up.
