This is not baseball related at all but I read this quote today which I am totally embarrassed to say I had never read until just now. It's beyond touching and it's probably one of the best quotes I have ever read in my life. To think a 15 year old girl had the depth to feel this way.
"Because when everybody starts hovering over me, I get cross, then sad, and finally end up turning my heart inside out, the bad part on the outside and the good part on the inside, and keep trying to find a way to become what I’d like to be and what I could be if . . . if only there were no other people in the world."
