Personal Quotes (6)

I can relate to anyone. I can hang out with stoners, skaters, surfers, stockbrokers, lawyers, athletes, rappers. I feel I can hang out with any group of people and find common ground to talk with them.
I refuse to be molded into some stereotypical ballplayer that has no interests, really, no life, no depth, no intelligence.
There's a part of me that wants to go streak and run outside and jump around and go swim in the ocean and do everything. The other part of me wants to bear down and repeat this kind of performance next year and in the years to come.
I view my pitching on how confident I was out there, period. And if I lose that confidence, I can become a prisoner of my own mind.
There's something to be said about the 'dumb jock' -- his intelligence doesn't get in the way. I think I'm more aware, so I fight more battles.
Everyone focuses on the earthly state, but how cool might death be? I believe in spiritual rebirth, and I can't wait to experience that.
