Lou Gehrig
"The Iron Horse"
Farewell Speech
July 4, 1939

Fans, for the past two weeks you have been reading about a bad break I got. Yet today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth. I have been in ballparks for 17 years and I have never received anything but kindness and encouragement from you fans.

So I close in saying that I might have been given a bad break, but I've got an awful lot to live for.
