If winning isn't everything, why do they keep score?
Chaos is the Score upon which reality is written.
On this Score, I will briefly address the re-entry of Biafra as a talking drum in our recent polity. A minister of state (Mrs. Dupe Adelaja) had the recklessness to say that Biafran soldiers cannot enjoy retirement benefits, not minding, for instance, the reality that some of them were Nigerian soldiers before the emergence of Biafra and that pardon has been granted to all ex-Biafran soldiers.chuba okadigbo
Thou hast most traitorously corrupted the youth of the realm in erecting a grammar-school; and whereas, before, our forefathers had no other books but the Score and the tally, thou hast caused printing to be used; and, contrary to the king, his crown, and dignity, thou hast built a paper-mill. It will be proved to thy face, that thou hast men about thee, that usually talk of a noun, and a verb; and such abominable words, as no Christian ear can endure to hear.
Every ball isfor methe first ball, whether my Score is 0 or 200, and I never visualize the possibility of anybody getting me out.Sir Don(ald George) Bradman
Four Score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth upon this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. We here highly resolve that the dead shall not have died in vain; that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom; and that government of the people, by the people, and for the people, shall not perish from the earth.Abraham Lincoln
A penalty is a cowardly way to Score.
Stern is a goalscorer but did not Score for us in seven games.phil brown
If you Score first, you have a 75 per cent chance of not losing the game. It doesn't take a brain surgeon to work out that you have to get off to a good start and Score.phil brown
Women who are either indisputably beautiful, or indisputably ugly, are best flattered upon the Score of their understandings; but those who are in a state of mediocrity are best flattered upon their beauty, or at least their graces; for every woman who is not absolutely ugly thinks herself handsome.stanhope, philip, 4th earl of chesterfield
To hold the same views at forty as we held at twenty is to have been stupefied for a Score of years, and take rank, not as a prophet, but as an unteachable brat, well birched and none the wiser. It is as if a ship captain should sail to India from the Port of London; and having brought a chart of the Thames on deck at his first setting out, should obstinately use no other for the whole voyage.Robert Louis Stevenson
This mighty wall of four Score miles in length is only exceeded by the Chinese wall, which makes a considerable figure upon the terrestrial globe, and may be discerned at the moon.william stukeley
It is of course true that any kind of judicial legislation is objectionable on the Score of the limited interests which a Court can represent, yet there are wrongs which in fact legislatures cannot be brought to take an interest in, at least not until the Courts have acted.learned hand
The thing that strikes me more and more and it strikes a lot of other people, too is the extraordinary viciousness and dishonesty of political controversy in our time.:; I don't mean merely that controversies are acrimonious.:; They ought to be that when they are on serious subjects.:; I mean that almost nobody seems to feel that an opponent deserves a fair hearing or that the objective truth matters as long as you can Score a neat debating point.george orwell
Philosophy is not politics, and we do our best, within our all-too-human limitations, to seek the truth, not to Score points against opponents. There is little satisfaction in gaining an easy triumph over a weak opponent while ignoring better arguments against your views.peter singer
They say he parted well, and paid his Score; And so, God be with him!william shakespeare
He cannot drink five bottles, bilk the Score, Then kill a constable, and drink five more; But he can draw a pattern, make a tart, And has ladies' etiquette by heart.william cowper
Alimony, that's what made OJ crack...after paying alimony OJ didn't Score a touchdown in 20 years.
Do you imagine that the law supposed that anybody should produce four Score witnesses? Two witnesses are enough to prove any fact, if it be a good one, for by the mouth of two witnesses shall a thing be established; and 200 will not prove any fact, if it be a bad one.
An aphorism that does not Score is just one more sentence.
Thou hast most traitorously corrupted the youth of the realm in erecting a grammar school: and whereas, before, our forefathers had no other books but the Score and the tally, thou hast caused printing to be used, and, contrary to the king, his crown and dignity, thou hast built a paper-mill.william shakespeare
