The wisdom of Satchel Paige

"Age is a case of mind over matter.
              If you don't mind, it don't matter."

Satchel Paige (1906-1982)
The pitcher, one of baseball's greats

This advice can be good medicine, pretty hard to overdose on this one.

Satchel played baseball  for 40 years, starting with the Chattanooga Black Lookouts of the Negro Southern League, and ending his Major League Baseball career with the Kansas City A's in 1965. He was a legend then, and still is. He's in the Hall of Fame.

Paige just might be more famous for his bite-size aphorisms than for his pitching.

Such as:
"Go very light on the vices…..the social ramble ain't restful."

"And don't look back—something might be gaining on you."
