מכל מלמדיי השכלתי

You try to learn from every experience. I've probably learned more from these guys than they have from me, and I think that's the way it should be. When things are going rough, you should get out front and take the hit. And when they're going good, you should stay out of the way.  

-Eric Wedge, 2007 AL Manager of the Year

הרבה למדתי מרבותיי, ומחבריי יותר מרבותיי, ומתלמידיי יותר מכולן

- I have learned a great deal from my teachers, even more from my peers, but from my students I have learned most of all.

"In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little, yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so.
