Famous quotes containing the word sport:

    Every American travelling in England gets his own individual sport out of the toy passenger and freight trains and the tiny locomotives, with their faint, indignant, tiny whistle. Especially in western England one wonders how the business of a nation can possibly be carried on by means so insufficient.
    Willa Cather (1876–1947)

    How long, then, Catiline, while you abuse our patience? How long is this madness of yours to make sport of us?
    Marcus Tullius Cicero (106–43 B.C.)

    The sport of digging the bait is nearly equal to that of catching the fish, when one’s appetite is not too keen.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
