“Awareness of having better things to do with their lives is the secret to immunizing our children against false valueswhether presented on television or in real life. The child who finds fulfillment in music or reading or cooking or swimming or writing or drawing is not as easily convinced that he needs recognition or power or some high to feel worthwhile.”
—Polly Berrien Berends (20th century)
“Two great European narcotics, alcohol and Christianity.”
—Friedrich Nietzsche (18441900)
“How, in one short century, has this ersatz sport so strangled the consciousness of the country in the grip of its flabby tentacles that the mention of womens baseball gets no reaction other than blank amazement?”
—Darlene Mehrer, As quoted in Women in Baseball. Ch. 6, by Gai Ingham Berlage (1994)
