Here are the top ten most inspirational Babe Ruth quotes:
Every strike brings me closer to the next home run.
It’s hard to beat the person who never gives up.
Yesterday’s home runs don’t win today’s games.
Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.
Reading isn’t good for a ballplayer. Not good for his eyes. If my eyes went bad even a little bit I couldn’t hit home runs. So I gave up reading.
I swing big, with everything I’ve got. I hit big or I miss big. I like to live as big as I can.
I had only one superstition. I made sure to touch all the bases when I hit a home run.
Watch my dust.
If you want to hit home runs, you’ve got to swing a lot.
Heroes get remembered, but legends never die.
