Famous quotes containing the words hall and/or music:

    In football they measure forty-yard sprints. Nobody runs forty yards in basketball. Maybe you run the ninety-four feet of the court; then you stop, not on a dime, but on Miss Liberty’s torch. In football you run over somebody’s face.
    —Donald Hall (b. 1928)

    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)
