Famous quotes containing the words men, basketball, georgia and/or yellow:

    According to true military art, one should never push one’s enemy to the point of despair, because such a state multiplies his strength and increases his courage which had already been crushed and failing, and because there is no better remedy for the health of beaten and overwhelmed men than the absence of all hope.
    François Rabelais (1494–1553)

    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)

    Being a Georgia author is a rather specious dignity, on the same order as, for the pig, being a Talmadge ham.
    Flannery O’Connor (1925–1964)

    My time has come.
    There are twenty people in my belly,
    there is a magnitude of wings,
    there are forty eyes shooting like arrows,
    and they will all be born.
    All be born in the yellow wind.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
