Roberto Clemente: One of the Greatest to Ever Live Roberto Clemente once said, “Any time you have an opportunity to make a difference in this world and you don’t, then you are wasting your time on Earth,” (Big Think Editors).

However, Clemente based his entire existence upon this single quote, and consequently left an ever-lasting impact on the world. Society as a whole has benefitted from Roberto Clemente due to his baseball accolades, his charitable acts, and his role in ending segregation.
John had explicitly called the rockets “fool things” and threw out all of Homer’s rocket building tools in the pouring rain, saying it’s “right where they belong.” The amount of discouragement and impertinence these actions hold is beyond imaginable. Additionally, when Homer’s father said “I've been mad as hell at you. But it's the first time in your life I've been ashamed of you.” Imperils Homer’s emotional and mental well being a substantial amount. Especially when one knows the odds of becoming successful coming from a town like ‘Coalwood’ is little to slim. In spite of this, Homer managed to be persistent throughout his work, and with indefatigability continued to pursue his dream.
A professional boxer can make more money in one match than some people make a year. An actor or actress can make even more than that boxer, when filming one movie.

Professional athletes and entertainers are not people who have jobs necessary to the growth of the United States. If anything they are holding back the growth of America.

There are many fans of collegiate level sports since they believe that players at this level play with more passion than an athlete at the professional level (Patterson). Some professional athletes don’t feel the need to work hard considering they have already made it to the highest level (Patterson).
