Because it’s Jackie Robinson Day, a few quotes from Jackie himself:
I’m not concerned with your liking or disliking me. All I ask is that you respect me as a human being.
A life is not important, except for the impact it has on other lives.
Life is not a spectator sport. If you’re going to spend your whole life in the grandstand just watching what goes on, in my opinion you’re wasting your life.
There’s not an American in this country free until every one of us is free.
