“Most people have to pay their dues before they get where they want to be.” 

“I just hated being around attention and stuff. In the clubhouse, I hated being around that. I didn't like anything to do with being around people, for the most part. I mean, I could be around them, just not in a talking situation, and that would make it even worse.” 

“I've been through ups before and even lower downs. I've seen how fast things can change. I'm just spending all my attention trying to continue to do good, to help us out, instead of getting caught up in it like I did before. I just want to stay consistent.” 

"I was actually hoping the Royals would pick me. It was the main team I wanted to go to. Their colors are Royal blue and that's my favorite color.” 

“Every single day for the last couple of years I've enjoyed it. That's part of the reason why I signed here again. I knew I enjoyed it here in the Kansas City situation.” 

“I knew there was something wrong with me, but I never thought about going to see anyone to talk about it.” 

“I didn't realize there was a cure for what I had, where I just hated being around people. I was going to get a job where I didn't have to be around people all the time. Mainly, just mowing grass was my goal.”
