And there he plays extravagant matches In fitless finger-stalls On a cloth untrue With a twisted cue And elliptical billiard balls.
Let's not pretend that mental phenomena can be mapped on to the characteristics of billiard balls.
Billiards is very similar to snooker, except there are only three balls and no one watches it.Steve Davis
The fellows were practising long shies and bowling lobs and slow twisters. In the soft grey silence he could hear the bump of the balls: and from here and from there through the quiet air the sound of the cricket bats: pick, pack, pock, puck: like drops of water in a fountain falling softly in the brimming bowl.James Augustine Aloysius Joyce
How on earth are the Chancellor and the Governor of the Bank of England, commending the 'Hard ECU' as they strive to, to be taken as serious participants in the debate against that kind of background noise? I believe that both the Chancellor and the Governor are cricketing enthusiasts, so I hope that there is no monopoly of cricketing metaphors. It is rather like sending your opening batsmen to the crease only for them to find, the moment the first balls are bowled, that their bats have been broken before the game by the team captain.geoffrey howe
Let's not pretend that mental phenomena can be mapped on to the characteristics of billiard balls.Gregory Bateson

We by nature mistrust authority no matter who wields it—and I think that’s healthy. Though I disagreed with him on the facts, I fully support Rep. Joe Wilson’s right to call out President Obama—I just wish Democrats had had the balls to call out President Bush when he was peddling his lies to Congress.rene balcer
Mother, they would praise my balls if I hung them high enough.brendan behan
You get first crack at the chicken balls if you get there early.kerry jackson
Oh, I hate the thought of all those costumes and grease paint! When I think that characters like Kundry will now have to be dressed up, those dreadful artists' balls immediately spring into my mind. Having created the invisible orchestra, I now feel like inventing the invisible theatre!richard wagner
All bluster, no balls.
If you bargain when they squeeze your balls, they will only squeeze again.
We are merely the stars' tennis balls, struck and bandied which way please them.john webster
I'm not going to shoot you between the eyes, John, I'm going to shoot you between the balls!
John, I'm not gonna shoot you between the eyes! I'm gonna shoot you between the balls!
"I got a buzz bigger than a beehive, cough up my cookies let loose what's on the inside - the Tussin, the Tussin! put it down like it was nothin', Robocop couldn't stop me from pukin' and flushin', no balls to be bustin', no fightin', no cussin', just love for a drug called Robitussin !"
Else if you would be a man speak what you think to-day in words as hard as cannon balls, and to-morrow speak what tomorrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said to-day.
