Famous quotes containing the word sport:
“The sport of digging the bait is nearly equal to that of catching the fish, when ones appetite is not too keen.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“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 (19031950)
