O Lord, self-renunciation is not the work of one day, nor children's sport; yea, rather in this word is included all perfection.thomas à kempis
My idea, my dream, my goal, is to go out and legitimize this sport and compete at the Olympic Games with my peers in the football arena.emmitt smith
This is a plot, if ever there was one, to illustrate King Lear's complaint, "As flies to wanton boys, are we to the gods; They kill us for their sport." I am aware this is the second time in two weeks I have been compelled to quote Lear, but there are times when Eminem simply will not do.roger ebert
When I play with my cat, who knows whether I do not make her more sport than she makes me?Michel de Montaigne
My hoarse-sounding horn Invites thee to the chase, the sport of kings.
You can't prove Rembrandt is better than Norman Rockwell - although if you actually do prefer Rockwell, I'd say you were shunning complexity, were secretly conservative , and hadn't really looked at either painter 's work. Taste is a blood sport.
Therefore, it is that Hinduism calls it all His sport Lila, or calls it an illusion Maya .
I think it puts baseball back on the map as a sport. It's America's pastime and just look at everyone coming out to the ballpark. It has been an exciting year.Mark McGwire
Serious sport has nothing to do with fair play. It is bound up with hatred, jealousy, boastfulness, disregard of all rules and sadistic pleasure in witnessing violence: in other words it is war minus the shooting... There are quite enough real causes of trouble already, and we need not add to them by encouraging young men to kick each other on the shins amid the roars of infuriated spectators.george orwell

Football: A sport that bears the same relation to education that bullfighting does to agriculture.elbert hubbard
It is not true that the English invented cricket as a way of making all other human endeavours look interesting and lively; that was merely an unintended side effect.

When I play with my cat, who knows whether I do not make her more sport, than she makes me?Michel de Montaigne
sport in the sense of a mass-spectacle, with death to add to the underlying excitement, comes into existence when a population has been drilled and regimented and depressed to such an extent that it needs at least a vicarious participation in difficult feats of strength or skill or heroism in order to sustain its waning life-sense.Lewis Mumford
While Spring shall pour his showers, as oft he wont, And bathe thy breathing tresses, meekest Eve! While Summer loves to sport Beneath thy lingering light; While sallow Autumn fills thy lap with leaves, Or Winter, yelling through the troublous air, Affrights thy shrinking train, And rudely rends thy robes.william collins
Every American travelling in England gets his own individual sport out of the toy passenger and freight trains and the tiny locomotives, with their faint, indignant, tiny whistle. Especially in western England one wonders how the business of a nation can possibly be carried on by means so insufficient.willa cather
sport is not something you can immediately walk away from, it is something which slowly starts to disappear from you.Gerald Huang
