It takes a lot of energy to be negative. You have to work at it. But smiling is painless. I'd rather spend my energy smiling.
I'm having a good time. I'm going to treat every game and every day as if they are my last because I now know that they could be.
If you don't believe in something, you'll fall for anything. I believe everything happens for a reason. If you are strong from within, you can will anything. I'm a firm believer that where there's a will, there's a way.
Life is too short to worry about anything. You had better enjoy it because the next day promises nothing.
I'd never heard of colon cancer. Baseball wasn't even important to me. I have a wife and two girls. That's what was important. The doctors told me and all I could say was, 'When are we going to get this thing out?'
People spend time worrying about things they think they have to have and lose perception of what they do have. You can have all the money and material things you want. If you aren't here to enjoy them, what good do they do?
I was hitting .360 when I was diagnosed. I didn't forget how to play while I was recovering. I don't know if the cancer is gone for good. I don't think anyone ever knows, but no one is going to steal my joy for as along as I'm able to play baseball.
I don't think any player lives up to his potential, because people out there put you so high on a pedestal, you'll never be as good as they expect.
I don't want to be famous. I want to be secure. I don't want the world. I just want a piece of it. I want people to remember Eric Davis.
I have figured out it's not what you do on the field, it's how many games you play in.
I want to establish myself as the first Eric Davis, not the next Willie Mays.
I'm no different than others with cancer. I just happen to play professional baseball. I'm part of those statistics that cancer has touched as well.
I've been operated on 13 times.
I don't even take aspirin.
For me to become the highest paid player in the franchise, it was something I didn't anticipate. But I'm glad. I like playing for Cincinnati.
Everyone would like to play in their hometown, but right now I like Cincinnati, I like the way it's going. I'm happy.
Baseball is not what I love. It's my job.
I will be a role model for cancer patients for the rest of my life. But you know what? When I was getting chemo, those people inspired me.
I'll have a stamp on me forever. There will always be questions. I brought new fans to the Orioles' organization, and that's good.
Most of the places I've been, I've been a main piece of the puzzle.
Never give up and don't ask why because every situation does not need an answer. I'm a firm believer that I don't worry about anything I can't control.
I think we now come to the park expecting to win instead of playing not to lose.
I ate while I was taking chemo. The doctors didn't know. I really didn't get any nausea. I didn't have side effects. I would be drained for a day and a half.
The kids competed for a full 32 minutes. We want the kids to compete on every possession.
Nothing I did contributed to me having cancer, so I can't sit back and say, 'Oh why me.' Why not me? Why does tragedy always have to hit someone else?
