Wednesday Wickedness # 11
Hi and welcome to Wednesday Wickedness. We are like other memes in that we will ask you ten questions each and every Wednesday. But our little "twist" is that each week we will pick a famous person and pick ten of their quotes. Each of our questions will be based on the quotes. Got it? Great! Let's begin this week's meme!
Today we picked George Steinbrenner (who passed away Tuesday morning at age 80). Here's Wednesday Wickedness!
1. "But why shouldn't I speak out? Don't you speak out in this country?" Do you speak out as often as you should?
I'm sure not as often as I should.
I do a lot of listening first before I speak.
2. "I am tough. Sometimes I'm unreasonable. I have to catch myself every once in a while." Are you ever tough and unreasonable?
Really not either one. Maybe you should ask my husband this question.
3. "I haven't always done a good job, and I haven't always been successful - but I know that I have tried." Do you believe that sometimes you learn more from a failure than a success?
I think you learn from both, but I think you remember it longer when you fail.
As least I do.
4. "Winning is the most important thing in my life, after breathing. Breathing first, winning next." Do you feel that you always have to win?
but I like to.
5. "It is unbelievable to me that the highest-paid team in baseball would start the season in such a deep funk.” Do you think money always buys greatness?
Money might buy you a great athlete, but not necessarily a great man.
6. "I take my last phone call at home at about 11pm." What time is too late to call you?
If you're selling something, then it's always to late.
7. "Don't talk to me about aesthetics or tradition. Talk to me about what sells and what's good right now." Do you think tradition matters?
Bah Humbug George.
8. "And what the American people like is to think the underdog still has a chance." Do you tend to root for the underdog?
Of course, I'm a lifelong Cub fan!
9. "I don't think I ever could exceed my father's successes. He was a completely satisfied man, he knew what he wanted to accomplish and he accomplished it. I did do a lot, though, to try to please him." Do you ever feel that you want to exceed your parents successes?
Silly question, I'm not in competition with my parents.
10. "I'm really 95 percent Mr. Rogers, and only 5 percent Oscar the Grouch." In terms of cartoon characters, who are you like?
I think I'm 90% Peppermint Patty and 10% Lucy.
