Famous quotes containing the words basketball, division and/or men:
“Perhaps basketball and poetry have just a few things in common, but the most important is the possibility of transcendence. The opposite is labor. In writing, every writer knows when he or she is laboring to achieve an effect. You want to get from here to there, but find yourself willing it, forcing it. The equivalent in basketball is aiming your shot, a kind of strained and usually ineffective purposefulness. What you want is to be in some kind of flow, each next moment a discovery.”
—Stephen Dunn (b. 1939)
“For in the division of the nations of the whole earth he set a ruler over every people; but Israel is the Lords portion: whom, being his firstborn, he nourisheth with discipline, and giving him the light of his love doth not forsake him. Therefore all their works are as the sun before him, and his eyes are continually upon their ways.”
—Apocrypha. Ecclesiasticus 17:17-9.
“As soon as you begin to say We have always done things this wayperhaps that might be a better way, conscious law-making is beginning. As soon as you begin to say We do things this waythey do things that waywhat is to be done about it? men are beginning to feel towards justice, that resides between the endless jar of right and wrong.”
—Helen M. Cam (18851968)
