Roger Angell Quotes

  • I felt what I almost always feel when I am watching a ballgame: Just for those two or three hours, there is no place I would rather be.
  • I don’t read Scripture and cling to no life precepts, except perhaps to Walter Cronkite’s rules for old men, which he did not deliver over the air: Never trust a fart. Never pass up a drink. Never ignore an erection.
  • Writing is hard, even for authors who do it all the time.
