Best Answer

The most famous quote attributed to the Baseball great is the one inscribed on his tombstone: "A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives."

Robinson was known to be highly competitive on the field. As he said: "It kills me to lose. If I'm a troublemaker, and I don't think that my temper makes me one, then it's because I can't stand losing. That's the way I am about winning, all I ever wanted to do was finish first."

Also, he once said: Life is not a spectator sport. If you're going to spend your whole life in the grandstand just watching what goes on, in my opinion you're wasting your life.
