? Casey Stengel on learning of Whitey Ford's retirement: "He was my banty rooster. He used to stick out his chest, like this, and walk out on the mound against any of those big pitchers. They talk about the fall of the Yankees. Well, the Yankees would have fallen a lot sooner if it wasn't for my banty rooster."
? Jochen Rindt, Grand Prix driver on his first 500-mile race: "It was like going back to boarding school or spending a month in a submarine. It was an extended psychological nightmare, a month of internment with men who had nothing on their minds except oval-track racing and erogenous zones."
