    ‘Throw down the ball, ye Jew’s daughter,
    Throw down the ball to me!’
    ‘Never a bit,’ says the Jew’s daughter,
    ‘Till up to me come ye.’
    Unknown. Hugh of Lincoln (l. 13–16)

    Living each day as a preparation for the next is an exciting way to live. Looking forward to something is much more fun than looking back at something—and much more constructive. If we can prepare ourselves so that we never have to think, “Oh, if I had only known, if I had only been ready,” our lives can really be the great adventure we so passionately want them to be.
    Hortense Odlum (1892–?)

    If there is any larceny in a man, golf will bring it out.
    Paul Gallico (1897–1976)
