Each month we choose a favorite quote--something fun or something to make you think. See the archive for quotes from previous months.


A new player comes in.
I ain't never seen him play,
but I've heard all about him.
He's Jackie Robinson.
He looks around for a locker,
but there aren't any more.
I do what the manager told me
and point to a folding chair and a nail on the wall.
I don't think any other player ever had to start with a nail.

           --Jackie's Bat, by Marybeth Lorbiecki
