I went up … and won unmerited praise.
My high place I do not much prize;
The joy of my parents will first make me proud.“

Roberto Clemente fotka

„I learned the right way to live from my parents. I never heard any hate in my house. I never heard my father say a mean word to my mother, or my mother to my father, either. During the war, when food was hard to get, my parents fed their children first and they ate what was left. They always thought of us.“

—  Roberto Clemente Puerto Rican baseball player 1934 - 1972

As quoted in "Clemente, 32, Pays Tribute to Parents" by Les Biederman, in The Sporting News (September 3, 1966), p. 12
