Famous quotes containing the words games and/or commonwealth:

    As long as lightly all their livelong sessions,
    Like a yardful of schoolboys out at recess
    Before their plays and games were organized,
    They yelling mix tag, hide-and-seek, hopscotch,
    And leapfrog in each other’s way all’s well.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    The commonwealth of Athens is become a forest of beasts.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
