  •  “'Pressure' is a word that is misused in our vocabulary. When you start thinking of pressure, it's because you've started to think of failure.”
  •  “If you don't love the Dodgers, there's a good chance you may not get into Heaven.”

  •  “If you love your job, you haven't worked a day in your life.”

  •  “Guys ask me, don't I get burned out? How can you get burned out doing something you love? I ask you, have you ever got tired of kissing a pretty girl?”

  •  “I bleed Dodger blue and when I die, I'm going to the big Dodger in the sky.”

  •  “I still remember the entire Boy Scout motto. I don't remember the serial number of my gun in the army. I don't remember the number of my locker in school. But I remember that Boy Scout code.”

  •  “No matter how good you are, you're going to lose one-third of your games. No matter how bad you are, you're going to win one-third of your games. It's the other third that makes the difference.”

  •  “Sports has kept me on the straight and narrow path.”

  •  “I'm telling you, I don't like cheaters.”

  •  “I've never used one word of profanity in front of my wife, or my daughter, or my granddaughter... or anybody else's wife.”

  •  “About the only problem with success is that it does not teach you how to deal with failure.”

  •  “My goal is to live to be 100.”

  •  “One time I was doing a speech to a group of kids, and just before I get there, I see this little kid crying. I found out they just lost a game, and he was the losing pitcher. I went over there, put my arm around him, and said, 'What are you crying for? When major league players lose, they don't cry.'”

  •  “I've got a portrait in the Smithsonian. Who ever thought that would happen?”

  •  “I love doubleheaders. That way I get to keep my uniform on longer.”

  •  “I started in the lowest league in baseball, and I worked my way all the way up to Triple A and then to the big leagues. I never reached the level that I thought I would reach as a player. But that's the way it goes. So then I started from the bottom as a manager, and I worked my way up to managing the Dodgers for 20 years.”

  •  “The only way I'd worry about the weather is if it snows on our side of the field and not theirs.”

  •  “We're all put here for a reason. And one little movement changes your way of life.”

  •  “When I took the job as the manager of the Olympic team, I didn't take it because I was a Dodger. I did it because I was an American, and I wanted to bring that gold medal where it belongs in baseball, the United States. And that's exactly what our team did”

  • “When you - when you become the manager of a major league team, particularly the Dodgers, to me, that's a privilege and an honor. No matter where you go or what you do, you represent that position that you have. And you represent that organization that gave you the opportunity to be doing what you're doing.”

  • “When I was interviewed after I got hired to replace Walter Alston, a future Hall of Famer, I was asked: 'Don't you feel pressure on you?' I said: 'Want to know something? I'm worried about the guy who's going to have to replace me.'”
