Here are a few pull quotes provided by YES:

“The only thing I miss more than winning is breathing.” — George Steinbrenner

“I know I’m hard on them (players) and I never congratulate them and pat them on the back.  I’m not that kind of a leader.  I guess I’m more of a Patton, than I am a Eisenhower.” — Steinbrenner on his management style

“I didn’t know Mr. Steinbrenner at all; I had just been traded there. I
was just joking around.  I said (to Steinbrenner), ‘Our Lord Jesus
Christ had long hair, and things seemed to work out for him.’  He
(Steinbrenner) didn’t say a word. He said, ‘Come with me.’ We walked
across the street to the Ft. Lauderdale swimming pool and he said, “If
you can walk on water, you can wear your hair any way you want.” — Lou Piniella

“He (Steinbrenner) said he hates me. Well, why do you hate me?  ‘Well, you hit that home run off us in the 80 playoffs.’ Well, George, you won in 1976, you win in 1977 you won in 1978.  We won in 1980.  Can’t we win one out of four times playing you guys?  ‘NO'”. — George Brett, on Steinbrenner’s not forgetting Brett’s crucial
home run in the 1980 ALCS
