„Me like hot weather, veree hot. I no run fast cold weather. No get warm in cold. No get warm, no play gut. You see.“

—  Roberto Clemente, Context: "I no play so gut yet," the Puerto Rican star tried to explain yesterday. "Me like hot weather, veree hot. I no run fast cold weather. No get warm in cold. No get warm, no play gut. You see." Clemente likes Forbes Field and Connie Mack Stadium the best of all the parks he's played in but has a strong dislike for Ebbets Field and the Polo Grounds because of the crazy bounces the balls take as they ricochet off the walls. As quoted and paraphrased in "The Scoreboard" https://news.google.com/newspapers?id=bkEqAAAAIBAJ&sjid=000EAAAAIBAJ&pg=4731,2918286 by Les Biederman, in The Pittsburgh Press (Friday, June 10, 1955), p. 30

„On the unfalsifiable theory of global warming:"Evidence that contradicts the global warming theory, climate kooks enlist as evidence for the correctness of their theory; every permutation in weather patterns—warm or cold—is said to be a consequence of that warming or proof of it.“

„All life was weather, a waiting through the hot where events had no significance for the cool that was soft and caressing like a woman's hand on a tired forehead.“

—  F. Scott Fitzgerald American novelist and screenwriter 1896 - 1940
Context: The street was hot at three and hotter still at four, the April dust seeming to enmesh the sun and give it forth again as a world-old joke forever played on an eternity of afternoons. But at half past four a first layer of quiet fell and the shades lengthened under the awnings and heavy foliaged trees. In this heat nothing mattered. All life was weather, a waiting through the hot where events had no significance for the cool that was soft and caressing like a woman's hand on a tired forehead. "The Jelly-Bean"
