Famous quotes containing the words street and/or football:
“What are you now? If we could touch one another,
if these our separate entities could come to grips,
clenched like a Chinese puzzle . . . yesterday
I stood in a crowded street that was live with people,
and no one spoke a word, and the morning shone.
Everyone silent, moving. . . . Take my hand. Speak to me.”
—Muriel Rukeyser (19131980)
“Idont enjoy getting knocked about on a football field for other peoples amusement. I enjoy it if Im being paid a lot for it.”
