I think everyone should go to college and get a degree and then spend six months as a bartender and six months as a cabdriver. Then they would really be educated.




The only mystery in life is why the kamikaze pilots wore helmets.




When I was losing, they called me nuts. When I was winning they called me eccentric.




I don't know why people question the academic training of an athlete. Fifty percent of the doctors in this country graduated in the bottom half of their classes.




I think the world is run by 'C' students.




Winning is overrated. The only time it is really important is in surgery and war.




When a guy takes off his coat, he's not going to fight. When a guy takes off his wristwatch, watch out!




Remember, half the doctors in this country graduated in the bottom half of their class.
