Famous quotes containing the words cricket and/or australian:

    The thing that struck me forcefully was the feeling of great age about the place. Standing on that old parade ground, which is now a cricket field, I could feel the dead generations crowding me. Here was the oldest settlement of freedmen in the Western world, no doubt. Men who had thrown off the bands of slavery by their own courage and ingenuity.

    Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960)

    Each Australian is a Ulysses.
    Christina Stead (1902–1983)
