Famous quotes containing the words basketball, women, duke, blue and/or devils:
“Perhaps basketball and poetry have just a few things in common, but the most important is the possibility of transcendence. The opposite is labor. In writing, every writer knows when he or she is laboring to achieve an effect. You want to get from here to there, but find yourself willing it, forcing it. The equivalent in basketball is aiming your shot, a kind of strained and usually ineffective purposefulness. What you want is to be in some kind of flow, each next moment a discovery.”
—Stephen Dunn (b. 1939)
“Though women are angels, yet wedlocks the devil.”
—George Gordon Noel Byron (17881824)
“That very knowing,
The Duke of Plaza-Toro!”
—Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (18361911)
“When the inhabitants of some sequestered island first descry the big canoe of the European rolling through the blue waters towards their shores, they rush down to the beach in crowds, and with open arms stand ready to embrace the strangers. Fatal embrace! They fold to their bosoms the vipers whose sting is destined to poison all their joys; and the instinctive feeling of love within their breasts is soon converted into the bitterest hate.”
—Herman Melville (18191891)
“Divinity of hell!
When devils will the blackest sins put on,
They do suggest at first with heavenly shows,
As I do now.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
