You can hit him and hit him and hit him and he just keeps on coming. I think that I learned a long time ago that one attribute that great players have is stamina, and he obviously has great stamina.
All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players.william shakespeare
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
Some people tell me that we professional players are soccer slaves.Well, if this is slavery, give me a life sentence.Sir Bobby (Robert) Charlton
It is a standing insult tosportsmen to have to play undera rule which assumes that players intend to trip, hack and push their opponents, and to behave like cads of the most unscrupulous kidney. The lines marking a penalty area are a disgrace to the playing fields of a public school.C(harles) B(urgess) Fry
For inspiration I look to those great players who consistently found original ways to shock their opponents. None did this better than the eighth world champion, Mikhail Tal. The "Magician of Riga" rose to become champion in 1960 at age twenty-three and became famous for his aggressive, volatile play.garry kasparov
We have a word game in English called "Twenty questions." To play Twenty Questions, one player imagines some object, and the other players must guess what it is by asking questions that can be answered with a "yes" or a "no." I imagine every language has a similar game, and, for those of us who speak the language of science, the game is called The Scientific Method.k. barry sharpless
In the whole history of the sea, there is little to equal the wonderful behavior of these humble players.steve turner
Basketball is a beautiful game when the five players on the court play with one heartbeat.Dean Smith
I remember that the players have often mentioned it as an honour to Shakespeare that in his writing, whatsoever he penned, he never blotted out a line. My answer hath been,Would he had blotted a thousand: which they thought a malevolent speech?[but] I loved themanand do honour hismemory, on thisside idolatry, as much as any.Ben Jonson
Cello players, like other great athletes, must keep their fingers exercised.
I prefer players not to be too good or clever at other things. It means they concentrate on football.Bill Nicholson
I've got to try and educate not only the players but the Derby fans and the board of directors that...phil brown
At this moment in time, it's pointing in the direction that the players aren't good enough, to be able to (i) take on the instructions that we give them and (ii) deal with the situation when the pressure is turned up - and it's disappointing. OK, there's a disappointing group of players in there but you keep on shooting yourself in the foot week in and week out. Something has to change.phil brown
"Nobody seems to appreciate what an incredible player Wilt was," Russell said at 1997 All-Star Game when the league named and honored its 50 greatest players. "He was the best player of all time because he dominated the floor like nobody else ever could. To be that big and that athletic was special."wilt chamberlain
There's at least half a billion dollars [worth] of baseball players in Cuba right now and probably a lot more.joe kehoskie
In many if not most cases, Cuban players haven’t been busts so much as they’ve been systematically over-hyped during the signing process, which led to unrealistic expectations around Major League Baseball and in the media. The vast majority of Cuba’s truly elite players have either stayed in Cuba for their entire careers or left Cuba too late to have a meaningful MLB career.joe kehoskie
In our small chess community in Marylebone it would be mock modesty on my part to deny that I have built up for myself a considerable name without ever actually having won a single game. Even the best players are sometimes beaten, and that is precisely what happens to me.Stephen Potter
One cannot play chess if one becomes aware of the pieces as living souls and of the fact that the Whites and the Blacks have more in common with each other than with the players. Suddenly one loses all interest in who will be champion.Anatol Rapoport
Nothing that the law-makers or the law-breakers or the MCC or the Board of Control or any conferences or county committees or pressmen or captains or players can do to it or have done to it over the years - nothing can affect cricket's basic worth or irresistible attraction.Ben Travers
Genes are a play within a play, not the interior monologue of the players."steven pinker
A popular Judge is a deformed thing:;:and plaudites are fitter for players than for magistrates. Do good to the people:;; love them, and give them justice; but let it be as the psalm says, 'nihil inde expectantes,' looking for nothing, neither praise nor profit.
International specialization and division of labor requires institutions and organizations to safeguard property rights across international boundaries so that capital markets as well as other kinds of exchange can take place with credible commitment on the part of the players.
Anything is possible on a train : a great meal, a binge, a visit from card players, an intrigue, a good night's sleep , and strangers' monologues framed like Russian short stories.
The monarchy is a political referee, not a political player, and there is a lot of sense in choosing the referee by a different principle from the players. It lessens the danger that the referee might try to start playing... which I usually construct in terms of the way it institutionalises deference, can be expressed much more simply: it rots the brain. ... This romancing about the royal family is, I fear, only a minor symptom of the softening of the brain of socialists ...
