Yeah, if it hadn't been for me everybody'd be a lot better offmy wife and my kids and my friends.... I wish I'd never been born. I suppose it'd been better if I'd never been born at all.

Oh yeah, the fun I had while I was doing it was great. Not everybody ends up this way.
(Sidney Underwood (b. 1963), U.S. jockey. As quoted in the Trenton Times (July 30, 1990).
On whether she would become a jockey if she had it to do over again. Underwood had been hospitalized a month earlier after a racing accident that left her paralyzed from the sternum down; her doctors were predicting that she would never walk again.)
'Yeah it left me into pieces. The fact that it was a personal thing with someone you thought you could trust and not thinking in the back of your mind what they really are after it. It saddens me that things like that can't be maintained between two people. But to let others know what occurred. It was as if I shattered to a million pieces... But I... I wouldn't do anything to harm anyone I care. Even with such anger no one deserves for what was not meant for others to hear. But we're different we all take things differently and that's the problem. We all use our anger to either burst into the public while some others just hold it within. I don't blame, I don't blame. I just wish it could've never happened. The outcome of everything is what's left from our decisions. But in the end I take blame in all.' -Michelle Morales
