I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

Just started reading 'Jimmy Connors Saved My Life' by Joel Drucker. There's a great quote by Pancho Segura at the start. I thought it'd be cool to start a collection of memorable tennis quotes. Here's Pancho's:

"People don't get it. They think that because tennis is played in these clubs that it's a rich man's sport. But it doesn't take more than a racket and a heart to play this game. That's the great thing about a sport like tennis. It's a great test of democracy in action. Me and you, man, in the arena. Just me and you, baby. Doesn't matter how much money you have, or who your dad is, or if you went to Harvard, or Yale, or whetever. Just me and you."
