Famous quotes containing the words summer and/or swimming:
“There is nothing like the fun of having brothers,
if there is no rivalry.
There is nothing like the fun of summer rains,
if there is no mud.
There is nothing like the fun of gambling,
if there is no loss.”
—Punjabi proverb, trans. by Gurinder Singh Mann.
“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)
