Famous quotes containing the words record, professional and/or boxing:
“Death is another milestone on their way.
With laughter on their lips and with winds blowing round them
They record simply
How this one excelled all others in making driving belts.”
—Stephen Spender (19091995)
“I hate the whole race.... There is no believing a word they sayyour professional poets, I meanthere never existed a more worthless set than Byron and his friends for example.”
—Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke Wellington (17691852)
“I can entertain the proposition that life is a metaphor for boxingfor one of those bouts that go on and on, round following round, jabs, missed punches, clinches, nothing determined, again the bell and again and you and your opponent so evenly matched its impossible not to see that your opponent is you.... Life is like boxing in many unsettling respects. But boxing is only like boxing.”
—Joyce Carol Oates (b. 1938)
