Context: I think if I had my life to live over again, I'd do things a little different. I was aggressive, perhaps too aggressive. Maybe I went too far.

And if I had I believe I would have had more friends. Statement made in 1961, as quoted in Voices from Cooperstown : Baseball's Hall of Famers Tell It Like It Was (1998) by Anthony J. Connor, p. 286

„My manner of living is plain. I do not mean to be put out of it.“

—  George Washington first President of the United States 1732 - 1799
