„Yesterday's home runs don't win today's games“

— Babe Ruth American baseball player 1895 - 1948
The earliest quotes similar to this are presented as unattributed folk wisdom, such as this example from 1959: As Brother Allen of Newsweek indicated, it has been fun, but don't try to rest on your laurels. Always remember, “YESTERDAY’S HOME-RUN DOESN’T COUNT IN TODAY’S GAME,” and today’s game is well under way. The quote does not begin to be attributed to Babe Ruth until the 1980s, nearly 30 years after its first appearance.

„It's fun to be in the game, and it's even more fun to win.“

— Michael Korda British writer 1933
Context: Your chances of success are directly proportional to the degree of pleasure you derive from what you do. If you are in a job you hate, face the fact squarely and get out. You may earn a good living, you may have a safe career, but you will never be a success. Find out what you enjoy doing, and your chances of succeeding will be dramatically better. We play the game every day, sometimes without even recognizing that we're doing it. We compete with other people, or other teams, or other companies, not only because it is essential to business survival, but because we frankly enjoy competition. It's fun to be in the game, and it's even more fun to win. p. 145
