Mersey Tigers Franchise History

Famous quotes containing the words history, franchise and/or tigers:

    There is a constant in the average American imagination and taste, for which the past must be preserved and celebrated in full-scale authentic copy; a philosophy of immortality as duplication. It dominates the relation with the self, with the past, not infrequently with the present, always with History and, even, with the European tradition.
    Umberto Eco (b. 1932)

    Many famous feet have trod
    Sublunary paths, and famous hands have weighed
    The strength they have against the strength they need;
    And famous lips interrogated God
    Concerning franchise in eternity....
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    Even tigers sometimes take naps.
    Chinese proverb.
