    O shining Popocatapetl, It was thy magic hour:

    The houses, people, traffic seemed
    Thin fading dreams by day;
    Chimborazo, Cotopaxi
    They had stolen my soul away!
    —Walter James Turner (1889–1946)

    Man is all symmetrie,
    Full of proportions, one limbe to another,
    —George Herbert (1593–1633)

    In football they measure forty-yard sprints. Nobody runs forty yards in basketball. Maybe you run the ninety-four feet of the court; then you stop, not on a dime, but on Miss Liberty’s torch. In football you run over somebody’s face.
    —Donald Hall (b. 1928)
