Games quotes

In our play we reveal what kind of people we are.
Ovid

One thing I've learned in twenty-nine years of playing tennis: Life will throw everything but
the kitchen sink in your path, and then it will throw the kitchen sink. It's your job to avoid
the obstacles. If you let them stop you or distract you, you're not doing your job, and failing
to do your job will cause regrets that paralyze you more than a bad back.
Andre Agassi

Bridge is a game that separates the men from the boys. It also separates husbands and
wives.
George Burns

I regard golf as an expensive way of playing marbles.
G. K. Chesterton

Snowboarding is an activity that is very popular with people who do not feel that regular
skiing is lethal enough.
Dave Barry

In life, as in football, you won't go far unless you know where the goalposts are.
Arnold H. Glasow

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.
George Orwell

It's not so important who starts the game but who finishes it.
John Wooden

When the great scorer comes to write against your name, he marks not that you won or lost,
but how you played the game.
Grantland Rice

My favourite sport in the Olympics is the one in which you make your way through the snow,
you stop, you shoot a gun, and then you continue on. In most of the world it is known as the
biathlon, except in New York City, where it is known as winter.
Michael Ventre

Love is a game that two can play and both win.
Eva Gabor

It is in games that many men discover their paradise.
Robert Lynd

Sports serve society by providing vivid examples of excellence.
George F. Will
