Curt Schilling Quotes
- Page 3
I've been able to do what I love and what I'm passionate about my entire life. I made, you know, an insane amount of money playing baseball.
I've got a wife, four kids, a business, and a baseball career.
I've helped create over 400 jobs in the worst economy of my lifetime. That's cool.
In this I-me society, my job is to get people to buy into something bigger than themselves.
More often than not, what you open, unwrap and install on your hard drive is not what you were told you were getting.
People love to say we get paid a lot of money to play a game, but it stopped being a game when you start getting paid.
The game was here long before I was, and will be here long after I'm gone.
You could ask any position player and they'll tell you: pitchers aren't athletes.
Every dollar I can't commit to my company that's paid in taxes is paying a government that I believe is too big and doing way too much that I don't want done.
I took a shot and tried to create something world changing and it didn't work out. I gave it everything I had, literally, and now I'm just trying to manage day by day and it's been challenging but my wife and my kids are healthy, and I'm OK.
I wanted to create jobs and create something that had a very longstanding world-changing effect. We were close. We were close to getting there. It just fell apart.
So every dollar of income that I have that is potentially taxed away is a dollar I can't put in my company to create a job. My entire company is around job creation.
