"I love the game, it's the greatest game on earth, that's why I can't understand all of this talk about trying to make the game better. People talk about the high strike zone and changing this and that. Why? To speed up the game? That's the beauty of baseball. There is no time element."
"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it."Eric Davis on Confucius
"To love beauty is to see light."Eric Davis on Victor Hugo
"Beauty is only skin deep. If you go after someone just because she's beautiful but don't have anything to talk about, it's going to get boring fast. You want to look beyond the surface and see if you can have fun or if you have anything in common with this person."Eric Davis on Amanda Peet
"A woman whose smile is open and whose expression is glad has a kind of beauty no matter what she wears."Eric Davis on Anne Roiphe
"People are like stained - glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within."Eric Davis on Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
"I was fortunate to play for Pete Rose and have teammates like Ken Griffey Sr., Tony Perez and Dave Concepcion. I grew up in the game with a mature attitude. I've always known it was better to be seen and not heard."
"I don't want to be famous. I want to be secure. I don't want the world. I just want a piece of it. I want people to remember Eric Davis."
"It's like, now you're actually complaining because you're making $9 million and guys are making more? If it makes you that upset, quit. Leave the game. Go home then and try finding another job that's going to pay you that."
"Life is too short to worry about anything. You had better enjoy it because the next day promises nothing."
"People spend time worrying about things they think they have to have and lose perception of what they do have. You can have all the money and material things you want. If you aren't here to enjoy them, what good do they do?"
