#39.

Cal Ripken quotes by Cal Ripken, Jr.
#40. It's one thing to win a game with a base hit, or to save a game by pitching a scoreless ninth ... it's something altogether different to save our National Pastime by day in and day out showing up with the joy and passion of a kid playing Little League and the determined attitude and work ethic of a consummate professional bent on doing one thing and one thing only: his job. - Author: Tucker Elliot
Cal Ripken quotes by Tucker Elliot
#41. Normally, some people think about 50 as a big moment in life. I kind of think 30 because in your baseball career, 30 was considered on top kind of looking at the end of your career. So I remember thinking about 30 in different ways, but 50 just seems like another step right now. - Author: Cal Ripken, Jr.

#42. As long as I can compete, I won't quit. - Author: Cal Ripken, Jr.
Cal Ripken quotes by Cal Ripken, Jr.
#43. I never understood that when I heard people retire - they said they missed being around the guys. I don't have a need to make a play in the ninth inning of a game anymore.

Cal Ripken quotes by Miguel Tejada
#47. A lot of people think I had such a rosy career, but I wanted to identify that one of the things that helps you have a long career is learning how to deal with adversity, how to get past it. Once I learned how to get through that, others things didn't seem so hard. - Author: Cal Ripken, Jr.
Cal Ripken quotes by Cal Ripken, Jr.
#48. Whether your name is (Lou) Gehrig or (Cal) Ripken, (Joe) DiMaggio or (Jackie) Robinson, or that of some youngster who picks up his bat or puts on his glove, you are challenged by the game of baseball to do your very best day in and day out. That's all I've ever tried to do. - Author: Cal Ripken, Jr.
Cal Ripken quotes by Cal Ripken, Jr.
#49. I haven't given it (achieving 3,000 hits) much thought. I was taught a certain approach, how to come to the ballpark. I try not to do too much thinking about things like that. In this society we measure success in different ways. Three thousand (hits) represents success over a career, not a season. It'll be nice to get to that point. - Author: Cal Ripken, Jr.
Cal Ripken quotes by Cal Ripken, Jr.
#50. ...our pilgrimage among house churches in persecution convinced us that God may actually want to use them to save us from the often debilitating, and sometimes spiritually-fatal, effects of our watered down, powerless western faith. - Author: Nik Ripken
Cal Ripken quotes by Nik Ripken
#51. Emilio appeared with wine before Cal could say anything, and Min beamed at him, grateful for the rescue. "Emilio, my darling. I forgot to mention cake boxes. Two hundred cake boxes."
"Already on it," Emilio said. "Nonna said you'd need them. She said to get four-inch-square boxes for three-inch-square cakes."
"I'm getting the boxes," Min said, nodding. "Sure. Great. Fine. Your grandmother is an angel and you are my hero. And of course, a genius with food."
"And you are my favorite customer." Emilio kissed her cheek and disappeared back into the kitchen.
"I love him," she told Cal.
"I noticed," Cal said. "Been seeing him behind my back, have you?"
"Yes," Min said. "We've been having conversations about cake."
"Whoa," Cal said. "For you, that's talking dirty. - Author: Jennifer Crusie
Cal Ripken quotes by Jennifer Crusie
#52. You hear a lot of jokes every once in a while about 'Silent Cal Coolidge.' The joke is on the people who make the jokes. Look at his record. He cut the taxes four times. We had probably the greatest growth and prosperity that we've ever known. I have taken heed of that because if he did that by doing nothing, maybe that's the answer. - Author: Ronald Reagan
Cal Ripken quotes by Ronald Reagan

Cal Ripken quotes by Nik Ripken
#57. I want to show you something," I say.
What?" He dabs at his lips with the napkin, and for a moment I'm wishing so hard that I am that napkin that I can almost feel myself changing, becoming thin and papery and white. "Cal?" I sit back and feel myself blushing, feel it from the tips of my toes all the way to the heat at the backs of my ears. - Author: Brad Barkley
Cal Ripken quotes by Brad Barkley
#58. The fact that the bodies weren't my first concern–-pissing and bodies were, in that order - -helped too. Killers have different priorities. - Author: Rob Thurman
Cal Ripken quotes by Rob Thurman

"Poisoned peanut butter."
"Cal, I don't care if it's nuclear peanut butter. - Author: Scott Westerfeld
Cal Ripken quotes by Scott Westerfeld
#60. Ugh. Why did I have to have so many thoughts? Why couldn't I just be a normal girl and bask in the glow of finally knowing that the boy I wanted wanted me back?
I slipped in the back door,and as I did, one of the maids gave me a quick curtsy. Ah,right. Because I wasn't a normal girl.
I had hoped to get back to my room without seeing anyone else, but I met Cal on the landing. Wonderful.
"Hey," he said, taking in my disheveled appearance. "Why are you up so early?"
"Oh,I was just,you know, exercising." I jogged in place for a second before realizing that I probably looked like a mental patient.
"Okaaay," Cal said slowly, confirming my suspicions. - Author: Rachel Hawkins
Cal Ripken quotes by Rachel Hawkins
#61. Cal's eyes flicker, out to the trees. But he's not looking at the leaves. His gaze is in the past, to something more painful. "She killed my true mother as well. And she'll kill all of us if we let her." The words come out hard and harsh, a rusty blade to saw f lesh. They taste wonderful in my mouth. "Not if I kill her first." For all his talents, Cal is not a violent person. He can kill you in a thousand different ways, lead an army, burn down a village, but he will not enjoy it. So his next words take me by surprise. "When the time comes," he says, staring at me, "we'll flip a coin. - Author: Victoria Aveyard
Cal Ripken quotes by Victoria Aveyard
#62. Well, you won't unless you come to lunch with me," Cal said. "I'm holding it for ransom. There's a gun
to its heel right now."
"I have lunch at my desk," Min began, and thought,Oh, for crying out loud, could I beany more
pathetic ?
"Emilio is experimenting with a lunch menu. He needs you. I need you. - Author: Jennifer Crusie
Cal Ripken quotes by Jennifer Crusie
#63. Chalk again?" Cal seemed almost disappointed. "Too bad there's no chalk monster."
Penn snorted with amusement. Chalk monster. That was like saying it was a vampire. Everyone knew vampires didn't exist. Zombies who drank blood to stay alive. Ridiculous. - Author: R. Cooper
Cal Ripken quotes by R. Cooper
#64. At that moment I remembered something Cal had told me: that there is beauty in darkness in everything. Sorrow in joy, life and death, thorns on the rose. I knew then that I could not escape pain and torment any more than I could give up joy and beauty - Author: Cate Tiernan
Cal Ripken quotes by Cate Tiernan
#65. One day, we will live in a world without salads. It is a dream I have. - Author: Carl 'Cal' Tuohey
Cal Ripken quotes by Carl 'Cal' Tuohey
#66. Are broken windows a new decorating theme around here?" Archer asked, coming up behind Jenna and me and poking his head into the parlor.
"So it would seem," I said. I was still looking outside when a faint light appeared in the gloom. It took me a minute to realize that it was from Cal's cabin. Was someone out there? Was Cal out there?
But just as quickly as it had appeared, the light went out again. Frowning, I turned from the doorway, and I went to slip my arm through Archer's. Then I remembered what Nausicaa had said earlier. Now wasn't exactly the best time for PDA, probably.
The three of us trailed behind everyone else into the ballroom. Here, at least, things looked more or less the same. Of course, the ballroom had always been one of the more bizarre rooms at Hex Hall, so that didn't say much. Still, I was relieved to see the familiar jumble of tables and chairs and not, like, tree stumps or whatever. - Author: Rachel Hawkins
Cal Ripken quotes by Rachel Hawkins
#67. So, destroy? Cal asked. Clearly, the conversation was giving his two brain cells a serious workout. - Author: Rick Riordan
Cal Ripken quotes by Rick Riordan
#68. I sit up in bed and watch her fiddle about in the back of my wardrobe. I think she's got a plan. That's what's good about Zoey. She'd better hurry up though, because I'm starting to think of things like carrots. And air. And ducks. And pear trees. Velvet and silk. Lakes. I'm going to miss ice. And the sofa. And the lounge. And the way Cal loves magic tricks. And white things- milk, snow, swans. - Author: Jenny Downham
Cal Ripken quotes by Jenny Downham
#69. I'll bet Grand Admiral Pellaeon doesn't take this long to get himself together.
I'll bet the Grand Admiral sleeps in his uniform.

Leia Cal Omas - Author: Shane Dix
Cal Ripken quotes by Shane Dix
#70. Radical Islamists are serious about killing in pursuit of their extreme objectives. Releasing their soldiers can only embolden them to take more Americans hostage. The deal for Sgt. Bergdahl may well turn out to have been a bargain with the devil. - Author: Cal Thomas
Cal Ripken quotes by Cal Thomas
#71. It's funny: when I set out to create the world of 'California,' I didn't give the type of apocalypse much thought ... I simply set my two characters, Cal and Frida, in a depleted world and moved through it intuitively. - Author: Edan Lepucki
Cal Ripken quotes by Edan Lepucki
#72. In America most orthodox Christians become defensive or testy when they are asked even to break into a sweat. Most of our efforts up until now have been more symbolic than anything else. We are great at holding conventions, gathering for strategy meetings and seminars, holding congresses on evangelism. But where are the people to run our own antidefamation league? - Author: Cal Thomas
Cal Ripken quotes by Cal Thomas
#73. His lips are on mine, hard and warm and pressing. The touch is electrifying, but not like I'm used to. This isn't a spark of destruction, but a spark of life. As much as I want to pull away, I just can't do it. Cal is a cliff and I throw myself over the edge, not bothering to think of what it could do to us both. One day he'll realize I'm his enemy, and all this will be a far-gone memory. But not yet. - Author: Victoria Aveyard
Cal Ripken quotes by Victoria Aveyard
#74. But part of what makes social media insidious is that the companies that profit from your attention have succeeded with a masterful marking coup: convincing our culture that if you don't use their products you might miss out. - Author: Cal Newport
Cal Ripken quotes by Cal Newport
#75. Those of us who have grown comfortable with the teachings of Christ have allowed His teachings to lose their edge. - Author: Nik Ripken
Cal Ripken quotes by Nik Ripken
#76. She pushed him onto the couch and straddled him ...
Min swallowed "the thing is, im going to spread. Hips, thighs-"
"Not till nine-thirty," Cal said trying not to picture her.
"-waist," Min said then stopped. "What? nine-thirty? Not till my forties, probably, i think i can fight it off that long, but then-"
"What?" Cal said.
"Im going to get fat," Min said, and he blinked. "Er. Im going to get fatter." she frowned at him. "what did you think i meant?"
"for future reference," he said starting to laugh. "if you're sitting half naked on my lap and you tell me you're going to spread-"
"No! I would never say that!" she said. - Author: Jennifer Crusie
Cal Ripken quotes by Jennifer Crusie
#77. I feel like the universe cheated Cal and cheated us along with him," I say now.
Before Cal died, Mum would have explained calmly and logically that the universe was all existing matter and space- 10 billion light-years in diameter, consisting of galaxies and solar systems, stars, and the planets. All of which simply do not have the capacity to cheat a person of anything.
Tonight she lights another cigarette. "It did," she says, and blows smoke at the stars. - Author: Cath Crowley
Cal Ripken quotes by Cath Crowley
#78. Spartacus," I called, "how's it hanging?" Probably not too well. Once you're dead, had your organs removed, and are resurrected as an undead mummified cat, your testicles probably looked like old raisins that had rolled under the couch. Raisins didn't tend to ... hang. - Author: Rob Thurman
Cal Ripken quotes by Rob Thurman
#79. We just lost our electricity. You want to tell me what's so funny about that?"
"It's not exactly funny. It's more of a good news/bad news situation."
"In that case, hit me with the good news first."
"They're both sort of rolled up into one."
"Stop stalling."
"All right. Now don't get mad, but ... " Smothered laughter drifted toward him. "Cal ... I'm naked. - Author: Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Cal Ripken quotes by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
#80. I went to Cal Arts and AFI, and I worked on 'Bonfire Of The Vanities.' I got this grant from the Academy to be Brian De Palma's apprentice director. And it was such a harrowing, disillusioning, awful experience. - Author: Douglas Rushkoff
Cal Ripken quotes by Douglas Rushkoff
#81. Now what?" he finally asked.

Téa came to stand in the doorway of her office. "Now
what, what? Hey, is that you, Cal?"
"Affirmative."

Affirmative? Was that the cutest or what? - Author: Christie Ridgway
Cal Ripken quotes by Christie Ridgway
#82. I knew."
"What?"
"I knew what you were then, Sophie. Your dad told me before the betrothal. And you told me about your grandmother, and what happened to your grandfather."
I shook my head. "Then, why?"
Cal took his time before answering. - Author: Rachel Hawkins
Cal Ripken quotes by Rachel Hawkins
#83. I knew you could be naive, but I never thought you were stupid. He's an Eye, Sophie. They kill our kind. What part of that don't you understand?"

All I could do was blink at him.

"And this one is worse than any of the others," he continued, "because he's technically one of us. He's a traitor to his own race, and you just keep letting him in and pushing...everyone else away." He looked up at me, what I saw in his eyes made me flunch. Cal was so good at hiding his emotions that I'd never realized...God, how could I have been such an idiot? - Author: Rachel Hawkins
Cal Ripken quotes by Rachel Hawkins
#84. Mum and I were both there at the moment that Cal died, and sometimes I worry that seeing that has altered something so fundamental about us. Sometimes I worry we lost some of our humanness that day, and It's not coming back. - Author: Cath Crowley
Cal Ripken quotes by Cath Crowley
#85. December 16, 1846, the fifteen composing the "Forlorn Hope," left Donner Lake. January 17, 1847, as they reached Johnson's ranch; and February 5th Capt. Tucker's party started to the assistance of the emigrants. This first relief arrived February 19th at the cabins; the second relief, or Reed's party, arrived March 1st; the third, or Foster's, about the middle of March; and the fourth, or Fallon's, on the seventeenth of April. Upon the arrival of Capt. Fallon's company, the sight presented at the cabins beggars all description. Capt. R. P. Tucker, now of Goleta, Santa Barbara County, Cal., endeavors, in his correspondence, to give a slight idea of the scene. - Author: C.F. McGlashan
Cal Ripken quotes by C.F. McGlashan
#86. Pushing past what is comfortable, however is only one part of the deliberate-practice story; the other part is embracing honest feedback - even if it destroys what you thought was good. - Author: Cal Newport
Cal Ripken quotes by Cal Newport
#87. That present sucked," I muttered.
Dad slipped an arm around my shoulder and helped me sit up. As he did, his sleeve fell back to reveal several slivers of demonglass embedded in his forearm.
"I'm fine," he said before I could ask. "Cal can get them out later. Are you all right?"
My shoulder was still on fire, but there was no pain anywhere else, and other than the shock of being blown backward and stabbed, I was peachy. "I think so. What was that, like a magic pipe bomb?"
The present lay in tatters on the floor, its ribbon coiling and snapping like a snake. Cal stomped on the ribbon, and it went still. "Seems like it," he said grimly.
"And it was ensorcelled to seek you out," Dad added. He looked so worried and angry that I decided not to give him a hard time for using a word like ensorcelled. - Author: Rachel Hawkins
Cal Ripken quotes by Rachel Hawkins
#88. Nix:
I'm actively involved in steering the lives of thousands of beings. Which directly affects hundreds of
thousands, which indirectly affects millions, with a ripple effect reaching billions. If someone said, 'It
ain't easy being Nïxie,' I wouldn't cal him a liar. - Author: Kresley Cole
Cal Ripken quotes by Kresley Cole
#89. The call that always seemed the toughest to me was the slide and tag play at second. You can see it coming, but you don't know which way the runner is going to slide, where the throw is going to be, and how the fielder is going to take the throw. - Author: Cal Hubbard
Cal Ripken quotes by Cal Hubbard
#90. I wish I knew how to turn the volume down on the sadness in this girl's eyes. I wish I could take her out of this dark, smelly alley and tuck her away some place safe. - Author: Cal Armistead
Cal Ripken quotes by Cal Armistead
#91. Cal considered. "What did my father do to make her leave?" "He loved her with his whole mind and body. He gave her everything he could imagine. - Author: John Steinbeck
Cal Ripken quotes by John Steinbeck
#92. I hope Maven will see what we are, what we can do, and know he cannot win. Even he is not a fool. Even he knows when he is beaten. At least, I hope he does. Because as far as I can tell, Maven has never been defeated. Not when it really counts. Cal won their father, his soldiers, but Maven won the crown. Maven won every battle that truly mattered. And given time... he would've won me too. - Author: Victoria Aveyard
Cal Ripken quotes by Victoria Aveyard
#93. Start small and start immediately. - Author: Cal Newport
Cal Ripken quotes by Cal Newport

...

But he is trying to be right? - Author: Deyth Banger
Cal Ripken quotes by Deyth Banger
#95. It's very important that we keep these special, wild places. It defines the United States. Imagine our country without our national parks and our monuments. Here in California, imagine if you didn't have in Southern Cal the Channel Islands or the great Highway 1, Big Sur up to Point Reyes up to the Redwood country. - Author: Douglas Brinkley
Cal Ripken quotes by Douglas Brinkley
#96. Come here, Cal," she says real gentle, and I come close.
Read me something."
