-Satchel Paige (1906-1982)

 

[T]his baseball legend continued his successful career well into his 60s. We are so obsessed with age, Paige implies, that we allow it to define our identities. Break out of the mental set that makes you think of your age first, and your identity second. (From Psychology Today)

Death, Native American, Perspective, Quote of the Day

September 30, 2012

Hold on to what is good,

Even if it’s a handful of earth.

Hold on to what you believe,

Even if it’s a tree that stands by itself.

Hold on to what you must do,

Even if it’s a long way from here.

Hold on to your life,

Even if it’s easier to let go.

Hold on to my hand,

Even if someday I’ll be gone away from you. 

– A Pueblo Indian Prayer
