Famous quotes containing the word soccer:

    Our first line of defense in raising children with values is modeling good behavior ourselves. This is critical. How will our kids learn tolerance for others if our hearts are filled with hate? Learn compassion if we are indifferent? Perceive academics as important if soccer practice is a higher priority than homework?
    Fred G. Gosman (20th century)

    We want beans, not goals.
    —Mexican steelworkers’ banner at opening ceremony of 1986 World Cup soccer championship.

    If we were doing this in the Falklands they would love it. It’s part of our heritage. The British have always been fighting wars.
    —British soccer fan. quoted in Independent (London, Dec. 23, 1988)
