Now let us sport us while we may; And now, like amorous birds of prey, Rather at once our time devour, Than languish in his slow-chapped power.Andrew Marvell
A barber is by nature and inclination a sport. He can tell you at what exact hour the ball game is to begin, can foretell its issue without losing a stroke of the razor, and can explain the points of inferiority of all the players, as compared with the better men that he has personally seen elsewhere, with the nicety of a professional.stephen leacock
I think it is important for all those young out there, who someday hope to play real football, where you throw it and kick it and run with it and put it in your hands, a distinction should be made that football is democratic, capitalism, whereas soccer is a European socialist sport.
I'm opposed to any sport that reduces the coefficient of friction between me and the ground.alan kotok
Try not to get lost in comparing yourself to others. Discover your gifts and let them shine! Softball is amazing that way as a sport. Everyone on the field has a slightly different ability that makes them perfect for their position.Jennie Finch
'Justice'was done, and the President ofthe Immortals (in Aeschylean phrase) had ended his sport withTess.thomas hardy
When a man wants to murder a tiger he calls it sport; when a tiger wants to murder him he calls it ferocity.George Bernard Shaw
Our so-called Society people, instead of going in for sport, persist in holding conversations in their drawing rooms, generally in a foreign tongue. They engage nurse maids, personal maids and governesses of all nationalities except Italian. They play poker and bridge with the accompanying drinks, certainly not Italian brands!achille starace
The noun lila means anything from sport, dalliance , play to any languid or amorous gesture in a woman .
The expansion (i.e. projection) and the contraction (i.e. dissolution ) of the universe are called lila (the divine sport) in Hindu scriptures. In this divine play, the One becomes many and the many return into the One in endless rhythmic fashion.
For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbours, and laugh at them in our turn?jane austen
No man likes to see his emotions the sport of a merry- go-round of skittishness.thomas hardy
Quand je me jou e« a' ma chatte, qui s c° ait si elle passe son temps de moy plus que je ne fay d'elle? When I play with my cat, who knows whether I do not make her more sport than she makes me?
I love sport because I love life, and sport is one of the basic joys of life.
In the name of all the competitors I promise that we shall take part in these Olympic Games, respecting and abiding by the rules which govern them, in the true spirit of sportsmanship, for the glory of sport and the honour of our teams.pierre de coubertin
Some write their wrongs in marble: he more just,Stoop’d down serene and wrote them in the dust,—Trod under foot, the sport of every wind,Swept from the earth and blotted from his mind.There, secret in the grave, he bade them lie,And grieved they could not ’scape the Almighty eye.samuel madden
sport carries on without deviation the mechanical tradition of furnishing relief and distraction to the worker after he has finished his work proper so that he is at no time independent of one technique or another. In sport the citizen of the technical society finds the same spirit, criteria, morality, actions and objectives in short, all the technical laws and customs which he encounters in office or factory.jacques ellul
Is that which was deemed to be of so fundamental a nature as to be written into the Constitution to endure for all times to be the sport of shifting winds of doctrine?felix frankfurter
If, as many anthropologists still hold, the making and using of tools as one of the chief sources of primitive man's intellectual development, is it not time that we asked ourselves what will happen to man if he departs as completely as he now threatens to do from his primal polytechnic occupations? Since they can no longer be pursued at a profit, perhaps they will have to be restored as modes of sport and recreation, even more as helpful increasingly essential forms of personal service and mutual aid.Lewis Mumford
...the veil is a symbol of sexual apartheid and the segregation of the sexes. In countries where Islam rules, like in Iran , the separate entrances for women in certain government offices; separate areas for women’s seating on buses for example; the banning of women from certain public arenas like sport stadiums; a curtain dividing the Caspian sea for segregated swimming and so on is what it means in practice to be a female under Islam. That people transgress these rules daily is a testimony to their humanity and not the laws or state that imposes it by force.
Detested sport, That owes its pleasures to another's pain .william cowper
Even bear-baiting was esteemed heathenish and unchristian: the sport of it, not the inhumanity, gave offence.David Hume
sport, rightly conceived, is an occupation carried out by the whole man. It renders the body a more perfect instrument of the soul and at the same time makes the soul itself a finer instrument of the whole man in seeking forTruth and in transmitting it to others. In this way it helps a man to reach that End to which all other ends are subordinate, the service and the greater glory of his Creator.
