When I put on my uniform, I feel I am the proudest man on earth.

After all these years, it's still embarrassing for me to play on the American golf tour. Like the time I asked my caddie for a sand wedge and he came back ten minutes later with a ham on rye.

They claim red meat is bad for you. But I never saw a sick-looking tiger.

If you have a chance to accomplish something that will make things better for people coming behind you, and you don’t do that, you are wasting your time on this Earth.

The first time I played the Masters, I was so nervous I drank a bottle of rum before I teed off. I shot the happiest 83 of my life.

I've heard people say putting is 50 percent technique and 50 percent mental.

I really believe it is 50 percent technique and 90 percent positive thinking, see, but that adds up to 140 percent, which is why nobody is 100 percent sure how to putt.

Golf is the most fun you can have with out taking your clothes off.

Only fools live in the past or carry envy to the present.

Remember you have to be comfortable. Golf is not a life or death situation. It's just a game and should be treated as such. Stay loose.

I am from the poor people; I represent the poor people. I like workers. I like people that suffer because these people have a different approach to life from the people that have everything and don't know what suffering is.

I believe staying young at heart is all in one's personal attitude.

.. you can't instill that in anyone.

When a man retires, his wife gets twice the husband but only half the income.

I am a millionaire today and my wife deserves all of the credit.

Before I met her I was a multi-millionaire.

Bigger than life is not difficult for me. I am bigger than life.

In a way, I was born twice. I was born in 1934 and again in 1955 when I came to Pittsburgh. I am thankful to say that I lived two lives.

Puerto Ricans are many colors - we are Spanish, we're French, we're Thai, Indian, we're almost black, some of us.

The sweetest two words are 'next time.' The sourest word is 'if.'

I don't fear death, but I sure don't like those three-footers for par.

When you're having trouble and topping the ball, it means the ground is moving on you.

I'm an actress, and I am Latina.

People tell me I look good these days.

I look good because I feel good. I know people who are older than I am who are twenty-five... It's all about attitude. To me, age is just a number.

I would be lost without baseball. I don't think I could stand being away from it as long as I was alive.

I'm one of the most joyous people I've ever met.

Golf is the only sport that a professional can enjoy playing with his friends.

I think you learn. You learn from your mistakes. You learn from things you do and try to stay away from the negatives in your life. I think I've grown.

I'm getting so old, I don't even buy green bananas anymore.

I never exaggerate. I just remember big.

A golf ball is like a clock. Always hit it at 6 o'clock and make it go toward 12 o'clock. But make sure you're in the same time zone.

Red meat is not bad for you. Now blue-green meat, that's bad for you!

There's no difference between me and you.

You need something, a glove, a place to live, you let me know.

La vida es un regalo de Dios, disfrútala.

La vida es una oportunidad, aprovéchala. La vida es belleza, la vida es un sueño, realízalo.

Golf is a thinking man's game. You can have all the shots in the bag, but if you don't know what to do with them, you've got troubles.

I don't exaggerate - I just remember big.

Many things inspire me, but at this moment in my life, my daughter is my greatest inspiration. Working hard has taken on a whole new meaning since I had her. I want to make a great life for myself so she can have a great life.

To the people here, we are outsiders. Foreigners.

When I used to gamble, I looked for players with head covers on their irons.

Those guys I could beat.

Take less time to read the scorecard and more time to read the hole.

Ten cuidado con quien te desahogas, sólo algunas personas les importa lo que sucede. El resto solo tiene curiosidad.

I am more valuable to my team hitting .330 then swinging for home runs.

The best wood in most amateurs' bags is the pencil.

Nobody does anything better than me in baseball (said before the 1971 World Series).

If I would be happy, I would be a bad ballplayer.

With me, when I get mad, it puts energy in my body.

I never pray to God to make a putt. I pray to God to help me react good if I miss a putt.

The only thing that matters is when the team wins.

I was on the dance floor but I couldn't hear the band.

Jack Nicklaus is a legend in his spare time.

Playing golf is not hot work. Cutting sugar cane for a dollar a day - that's hot work. Hotter than my first wrist watch.

You gotta take care of yourself; you cant do anything in excess.

But some people act like they think I live in the jungle someplace.

My mother always gives the best advice.

When I left Puerto Rico to pursue my dreams, she always supported me and said to me, 'I'm never going to cut your wings, so don't let anyone else do that to you.' That has been my philosophy through life. I want to share that valuable lesson with my little girl someday.
