The truth is that men don't want to be friends with women. Men know they don't understand women, and they don't much care. They want women as lovers, as wives, as mothers, but they're not really interested in them as friends. They have friends. Men are their friends. And they talk to their male friends about sports, and I have no idea what else.
Women, on the other hand, are dying to be friends with men. Women know they don't understand men, and it bothers them: they think that if only they could be friends with them, they would understand them and, what's more (and this is their gravest mistake), it would help. ~ Nora Ephron
Sports quotes by Nora Ephron
Xav sprinkled olive oil on his lettuce. 'Lola was very particular that it all had to fit properly.'
'Lola?' squeaked Diamond. I wanted to warn her not to rise to the bait Xav was dangling in front of her but it was too late.
Xav added some Parmesan and pepper. 'Suspicious, Diamond? You should be. This is a bachelor party I'm organizing, not a school outing, and it is going to tick all of Trace's boxes. Lola is either a very efficient water sports instructor or an exotic dancing girl; I'll leave it your imagination.'
I rolled my eyes at Diamond. 'Myabe she's both. I mean the guys will really go for that, I guess. Don't worry,Di, Luigi and his crew will not disappoint us girls.' Luigi was in fact Contessa Nicoletta's little bespectacled chef with whom I had been consulting about the menu for Friday, but the Benedicts weren't to know that. 'He has promised to provide something suitably spicy for our tastes. ~ Joss Stirling
Sports quotes by Joss Stirling
If a man watches three football games in a row, he should be declared legally dead. ~ Erma Bombeck
Sports quotes by Erma Bombeck
Today I will do what others won't, so tomorrow I can accomplish what others can't. ~ Jerry Rice
Sports quotes by Jerry Rice
It's the old story. You might be able to fool your coaches, or your teammates, or your opponents. But, you can never fool yourself in anything. I believe that the more critical you are of your own performance- the higher standards you have-the better you become at what you do. ~ Don Maynard
Sports quotes by Don Maynard
The only way of finding a solution is to fight back, to move, to run, and to control that pressure. ~ Rafael Nadal
Sports quotes by Rafael Nadal
In modern society most of us don't want to be in touch with ourselves; we want to be in touch with other things like religion, sports, politics, a book - we want to forget ourselves. Anytime we have leisure, we want to invite something else to enter us, opening ourselves to the television and telling the television to come and colonize us. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
Sports quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh
Zen students see themselves as athletes. Their competitive sport is enlightenment; only with enlightenment do we compete. ~ Frederick Lenz
Sports quotes by Frederick Lenz
He's that senior offensive lineman I told you about who's coming off the injured reserve list. Anyway, Coach is concerned that he won't be ready to play at full--"
Mimi drops her head on the bar and starts to snore out loud. Very loud. So loud that a couple of patrons stop and stare at us.
"Mimi," I say in a low voice, "what the hell?"
She pops her head back up and rubs her eyes as if she just woke up from a catnap. "Oh my God, I'm so sorry, Katy. I was just so bored I fell right to sleep while you were talking about sports. Again. For like the millionth time. ~ Barbie Bohrman
Sports quotes by Barbie Bohrman
Do the best work you can do and try not to worry about the fact that you are a woman covering the NFL and you have never played the sport before. Just focus on the story and study, prepare and deliver the best report possible. ~ Megan Alexander
Sports quotes by Megan Alexander
There is no room in baseball for discrimination. It is our national pastime and a game for all. ~ Lou Gehrig
Sports quotes by Lou Gehrig
My study of chess was accompanied by a strong attraction to music, and it was probably thanks to this that from childhood I became accustomed to thinking of chess as an art, for all the science and sport involved in it. ~ Vasily Smyslov
Sports quotes by Vasily Smyslov
Two things are always happening in acting. On the one hand, it's a team sport. We're all pulling together. But on the other, you have to look after your own character. Guard their interests. ~ Domhnall Gleeson
Sports quotes by Domhnall Gleeson
Acting is a sport. On stage you must be ready to move like a tennis player on his toes. Your concentration must be keen, your reflexes sharp; your body and mind are in top gear, the chase is on. Acting is energy. In the theatre people pay to see energy. ~ Clive Swift
Sports quotes by Clive Swift
There's lots of people my age (and younger) that have grown up in chaotic environments and I just happen to be one of the first ones to make it to pro sports. It's more a societal thing than an athletics thing. ~ Chris Kluwe
Sports quotes by Chris Kluwe
My motto is, you have to get in a sport a day. ~ Paul Walker
Sports quotes by Paul Walker
Winners live in the present tense. People who come up short are consumed with future or past. I want to be living in the now. ~ Alex Rodriguez
Sports quotes by Alex Rodriguez
To secure the safety of the navigation of the Mississippi River I would slay millions. On that point I am not only insane, but mad ... I think I see one or two quick blows that will astonish the natives of the South and will convince them that, though to stand behind a big cottonwood and shoot at a passing boat is good sport and safe, it may still reach and kill their friends and families hundreds of miles off. For every bullet shot at a steamboat, I would shoot a thousand 30-pounder Parrots into even helpless towns on Red, Ouachita, Yazoo, or wherever a boat can float or soldier march. ~ William Tecumseh Sherman
Sports quotes by William Tecumseh Sherman
But sports photography isn't something you just pick up overnight. You can't do it once a year for fun and expect to do a good job. And I take pride in what I do. ~ Drew Carey
Sports quotes by Drew Carey
There have been times - and not just on 'The Newsroom,' but on 'The West Wing,' 'Sports Night,' 'Studio 60' ... - where it was hard to look the cast and crew in the eye, when I put a script on the table that I knew just wasn't good enough. ~ Aaron Sorkin
Sports quotes by Aaron Sorkin
Sometimes it is more important to discover what one cannot do, than what one can do. ~ Lin Yutang
Sports quotes by Lin Yutang
I know why they don't like me because they want the money I have. ~ Mike Tyson
Sports quotes by Mike Tyson
Walking to the net, I'm certain that I've lost to the better man, the Everest of the next generation. I pity the young players who will have to contend with him. I feel for the man who is fated to play Agassi to his Sampras. Though I don't mention Pete by name, I have him uppermost in my mind when I tell reporters: It's real simple. Most people have weaknesses. Federer has none. ~ Andre Agassi
Sports quotes by Andre Agassi
I really believe this team has a lot of potential - whether it's this year or in years to come, I don't know. ~ Brett Favre
Sports quotes by Brett Favre
Bodybuilding is not just a sport; it's a way of life. If every aspect of your life is not focused on making the sacrifices necessary to build your best physique, you will ultimately fail and never reach your full potential. ~ Robert Cheeke
Sports quotes by Robert Cheeke
I have zero interest in sports of any kind - professional, college or international. ~ Jimmy Wales
Sports quotes by Jimmy Wales
It's not just the NFL. Every other league has a draft. It has been fundamental to the success of professional sports. ~ Roger Goodell
Sports quotes by Roger Goodell
Sports became a favorite subject of reflection and will soon be the only way of thinking ~ Vasily Klyuchevsky
Sports quotes by Vasily Klyuchevsky
In whatever sport of field of endeavor you are interested, you should do whatever is necessary to compliment your God-given talent with proper mental preparation so as to do "the best you can." The criterion should be to fully exploit your potential rather than to win at any cost. What more could anyone ever ask of you than to be the best you possibly can? ~ Bob Cousy
Sports quotes by Bob Cousy
The only thing that counts is your dedication to the game. You run on your own fuel; it comes from within you. ~ Paul Brown
Sports quotes by Paul Brown
People see it [boxing] as a physical contact sport, but it's not. It's really a spiritual one of will against will. Who wants it the most? How much is he willing to take - and dish out - to get it? It's like fighting is 10 percent physical and 90 percent emotional. ~ Mike Tyson
Sports quotes by Mike Tyson
Little things make the difference. Everyone is well prepared in the big things, but only the winners perfect the little things. ~ Bear Bryant
Sports quotes by Bear Bryant
I had played sports all my life, and I thought that was going to be the way. But I saw where the potential in football was going to end. When it comes to decision-making, I just follow my gut at the end of the day. And if I don't, I get in trouble. I wanted to become a filmmaker. ~ Jason Wiles
Sports quotes by Jason Wiles
If you make one mistake, it can result in vasectomy. ~ John G. Rowland
Sports quotes by John G. Rowland
I cannot for the life of me see why the umpires, the only two people on a cricket field who are not going to get grass stains on their knees, are the only two people allowed to wear dark trousers. ~ Katharine Whitehorn
Sports quotes by Katharine Whitehorn
Sport allows people to come together, but politics divides people. ~ Francois Hollande
Sports quotes by Francois Hollande
When the English have scored a goal, they think nothing more remains to be done. ~ Jose Bergamin
Sports quotes by Jose Bergamin
In sport, there is always room for improvement. Whenever I see my innings against the West Indies or Australia, I think, 'Maybe, I could have done this better or should have changed that.' See, cricket is a skill game, and one can always improve upon the impact one has on an innings. ~ Yuvraj Singh
Sports quotes by Yuvraj Singh
In the contest between talent and hard work as to which is the more important element of success, there's no comparison. A mediocre talent with lots of hard work will go further than a stellar talent who coasts. ~ David Joyner
Sports quotes by David Joyner
A guy that throws what he intends to throw, that's the definition of a good pitcher. ~ Sandy Koufax
Sports quotes by Sandy Koufax
I'm a sports junkie, and I am interested in athletic will - how you exceed the expectations of your own performance when it counts to deliver something beyond yourself so that you can win. ~ Alex Gibney
Sports quotes by Alex Gibney
If I cry, it means I'm too weak to compete in this sport. That's bull. ~ Shawna Robinson
Sports quotes by Shawna Robinson
Determination is number one! You have to be trained physically. You have to have a good mental attitude - wanting it and enjoying the thrill of going fast. There is a certain level of aggression with competing at professional racing level but you have to control it as it is a high reaction, fast sport. ~ Liz Halliday
Sports quotes by Liz Halliday
[Meeting Mandela] was the highlight of my career; to meet such a great man and a strong man and such a passionate man about sport and life will always stay with me. ~ David Beckham
Sports quotes by David Beckham
Female athletes are stereotyped by the general population
and usually as homosexuals. ~ Billie Jean King
Sports quotes by Billie Jean King
This is a sport where you get your ego checked on a regular basis, whether it's in the cage or it's at practice. ~ Carlos Condit
Sports quotes by Carlos Condit
We have forty-four defenses for him, but he has forty-five ways to score. ~ Al Attles
Sports quotes by Al Attles
We should confine booing in sports arenas to sport. I love a good boo as much as the next football fan. ~ Alastair Campbell
Sports quotes by Alastair Campbell
The water cooler conversation in every job I've had is sports, it's what did you do this weekend, it's 'How are your parents doing?' ~ Kal Penn
Sports quotes by Kal Penn
Your power play can win you games, and your penalty killers can save you games. ~ Emile Francis
Sports quotes by Emile Francis
You were deliberately planned, specially gifted, and lovingly placed on this earth by God. In a world that decides your worth by the clothes you wear or the sports you play, let me tell you something - you are valuable because God created you. ~ Max Lucado
Sports quotes by Max Lucado
Before I go out on the field every day, I tell myself, 'You are having fun, and you want to set a good example to those who are watching. ~ Cory Snyder
Sports quotes by Cory Snyder
I was a huge theater geek growing up, and that was not the easiest thing in the world, especially growing up in Chicago, where sports are really the norm. I was always off to the theater at night, from 7 years old on. Friends there in the Midwest who could talk to you about the idiosyncrasies of 'Pippin' were few and far between. ~ Johnny Galecki
Sports quotes by Johnny Galecki
Whatever is going on inside your head has everything to do with how well you end up performing. ~ D.C. Gonzalez
Sports quotes by D.C. Gonzalez
If a girl wants to sell her body, so be it. None of my business. Don't athletes sell their bodies, too? People can do behind closed doors whatever they want, as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else. ~ Oliver Markus Malloy
Sports quotes by Oliver Markus Malloy
I think the key is never being satisfied with your skills and you have to constantly learn. I say this all the time, I sound like a broken record, but if you are not getting better in this sport you are getting worse ~ Kenny Florian
Sports quotes by Kenny Florian
Those who know how to win are much more numerous than those who know how to make proper use of their victories. ~ Polybius
Sports quotes by Polybius
I have three kids, and I'm a coach for a lot of their sports, so I'm around them a lot, but I see friends of mine with older kids and they don't really interact so much, other than giving them a place to live. ~ Mike O'Malley
Sports quotes by Mike O'Malley
As a sports fan, the Los Angeles Kings winning the Stanley Cup makes me feel very alive. ~ Five For Fighting
Sports quotes by Five For Fighting
I think if you go from show to show without doing that big PR blitz it's helpful because people can get pretty sick of your face if you're just out there all the time. And keep a low profile, hold in your stomach and be a good sport. ~ Jane Curtin
Sports quotes by Jane Curtin
Life is a sports make it count. ~ Derrick Adkins
Sports quotes by Derrick Adkins
I tell Dylan I have to go to the bathroom. I shut the door and try to pee, but my dick's already sticking straight up at the ceiling. Great. I'm sure she caught that minor detail. We haven't even kissed yet. I shake my head and do my best to pee. I pull my pants back up, trying to make my hard-on less obvious. I stare at myself in the mirror and splash cold water on my face to calm down. My face flushed.
I concentrate on one critical thing. Last, Gray. You've got to make it last. No two pumps, you're done. Don't be that guy. You're stronger than that.
Think sports.
Try to name every candy bar you can.
Think about anything but what her body feel like, because as soon as you let yourself go there, It's over.
Enough with the pep talk. I take a deep breath. This is it. It's what you were born to do. ~ Katie Kacvinsky
Sports quotes by Katie Kacvinsky
I'm a boxer who believes that the object of the sport is to hit and not get hit. ~ Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
Sports quotes by Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
Following Emporer Nero's command, "Let the Christians be exterminated!:" ... they [the Christians] were made the subjects of sport; they were covered with the hides of wild beasts and worried to death by dogs, or nailed to crosses or set fire to, and when the day waned, burned to serve for the evening lights. ~ Tacitus
Sports quotes by Tacitus
Skiing is the next best thing to having wings. ~ Oprah Winfrey
Sports quotes by Oprah Winfrey
Mentally there's no question about whether I still like the sport and love doing it. I think it's pretty clear to everyone here that I love the sport. I love doing gymnastics and I love performing. So that's not really a question. ~ Samantha Peszek
Sports quotes by Samantha Peszek
All about that action boss ~ Marshawn Lynch
Sports quotes by Marshawn Lynch
The majority of people who get in the sport of gymnastics do not go to the Olympics or get a Division 1 scholarship, but it doesn't mean that they can't get something positive from the sport. ~ Dominique Dawes
Sports quotes by Dominique Dawes
Only through training will a person learn his own weaknesses ... He who is aware of his weaknesses will remain master of himself in any situation. ~ Gichin Funakoshi
Sports quotes by Gichin Funakoshi
With athletes, it's never fully understood the level to which we push ourselves. Especially in an endurance sport. ~ Clara Hughes
Sports quotes by Clara Hughes
Nosology (from the Greek 'nosos,' meaning 'disease,' and 'logos,' referring to 'study') is not a sport for the timid, and certainly not for those so scrupulous about rules and order that they demand consistency in all things. ~ Sherwin B. Nuland
Sports quotes by Sherwin B. Nuland
You're going to make mistakes in life. It's what you do after the mistakes that counts. ~ Brandi Chastain
Sports quotes by Brandi Chastain

Sports quotes by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Sports quotes by Arnold Schwarzenegger
To measure the man, measure his heart. ~ Malcolm Forbes
Sports quotes by Malcolm Forbes
If you have the sense of participation in sports or athletics, of being a player, then you are not really into the Zen mind. In Zen mind there is no sense of self in the play. ~ Frederick Lenz
Sports quotes by Frederick Lenz
Karate is a form of martial arts in which people who have had years and years of training can using only their hands and feet make some of the worst movies in the history of the world. ~ Dave Barry
Sports quotes by Dave Barry
Success lulls you. It makes the most ambitious of us complacent and sloppy. In a way, you have to cultivate a kind of amnesia and forget all of your previous prosperity. ~ Pat Summitt
Sports quotes by Pat Summitt
It was always fun for me, I loved baseball so darn much. By the hours I practiced, you'd have to say I was working a lot of hours, but it was pretty near tireless fun for me. I'd rather swing a bat than do anything else in the world. ~ Ted Williams
Sports quotes by Ted Williams
There is no getting around the fact that the moment you are at your very best is the moment you begin to become worse and worse. Others will come along who can run faster, jump higher, hit harder, and you will be forgotten. Your winning moment is dated to die. ~ Charlie Higson
Sports quotes by Charlie Higson
My prescription for women entering the war zone of the professions: study football ... Women who want to remake the future should look for guidance not to substitute parent figures but to the brash assertions of pagan sport. ~ Camille Paglia
Sports quotes by Camille Paglia
Business is a team sport. ~ Greg Brenneman
Sports quotes by Greg Brenneman
This team is one execution away from being a very good basketball team. ~ Doc Rivers
Sports quotes by Doc Rivers
Because in addition to joining dangerous gangs and having parties, this Noah also goes out with girls, keeps his hair buzzed and tidy, hangs at The Spot, watches sports with Dad. For all other sixteen-year-old boys: fine. For Noah, it signifies one thing: death of the spirit. A book with the wrong story in it. ~ Jandy Nelson
Sports quotes by Jandy Nelson
You know no one ever accomplishes something like this without a lot of help from good people along the way. And this is certainly true in my case, and I would like to thank some of those people. ~ Robin Yount
Sports quotes by Robin Yount
We have a high ceiling. We're still young. We're still learning coach's system and we're still learning how to play hard every night. I think that's been a bad habit of ours the last few years. It's a habit that's hard to shake, too. I think if we keep pushing, we'll be alright this season. ~ Andrew Bogut
Sports quotes by Andrew Bogut
Serena and I have done some great career planning, and we're playing really at the peak of our tennis right now. I think tennis has been a sport where people play this insane schedule from 14 years old, so of course at 26, it's over. We've really paced ourselves. ~ Venus Williams
Sports quotes by Venus Williams
Looking good is important. We're our own premium brand as professional athletes, so you want to be thoughtful about presentation and represent yourself and your city and sport as best you can. ~ C. J. Wilson
Sports quotes by C. J. Wilson
Offer me?" A shrill note of indignation entered her voice. "Young man, there are three things that make Britain great. The first is our inability at playing sports."
How does that make Britain great?"
"Despite the certainty of loss, we try anyway with the absolute conviction that this year will be the one, regardless of all evidence to the contrary!"
I raised my eyebrows, but that simply meant I could see my blood more clearly, so looked away and said nothing.
"The second," she went on, "is the BBC. It may be erratic, tabloid, under-funded and unreliable, but without the World Service, obscure Dickens adaptions, the Today Program and Doctor Who, I honestly believe that the cultural and communal capacity of this country would have declined to the level of the apeman, largely owing to the advent of the mobile phone!"
"Oh," I said, feeling that something was expected. "Oh" was enough.
"And lastly, we have the NHS!"
"This is an NHS service?" I asked incredulously.
"I didn't say that, I merely pointed out that the NHS makes Britain great. Now lie still. ~ Kate Griffin
Sports quotes by Kate Griffin
As you become a legend in the game, you build more doubters than you build supporters. And that's fine. I think that comes with anything that's challenging. I think it even comes with sports. The older that Michael Jordan got, I think the more doubted he became. ~ Nelly
Sports quotes by Nelly
It's not whether you win or lose - but whether I win or lose. ~ Sandy Lyle
Sports quotes by Sandy Lyle
All the minor sports injuries you acquire over the years begin to multiply like flies when you get over 70. ~ Peter O'Toole
Sports quotes by Peter O'Toole
The Ballad of Lucy Jordan
The morning sun touched lightly on the eyes of Lucy Jordan
In a white suburban bedroom in a white suburban town
As she lay there 'neath the covers dreaming of a thousand lovers
Till the world turned to orange and the room went spinning round.

At the age of thirty-seven she realised she'd never
Ride through Paris in a sports car with the warm wind in her hair.
So she let the phone keep ringing and she sat there softly singing
Little nursery rhymes she'd memorised in her daddy's easy chair.

Her husband, he's off to work and the kids are off to school,
And there are, oh, so many ways for her to spend the day.
She could clean the house for hours or rearrange the flowers
Or run naked through the shady street screaming all the way.

At the age of thirty-seven she realised she'd never
Ride through Paris in a sports car with the warm wind in her hair
So she let the phone keep ringing as she sat there softly singing
Pretty nursery rhymes she'd memorised in her daddy's easy chair.

The evening sun touched gently on the eyes of Lucy Jordan
On the roof top where she climbed when all the laughter grew too loud
And she bowed and curtsied to the man who reached and offered her his hand,
And he led her down to the long white car that waited past the crowd.

At the age of thirty-seven she knew she'd found forever
As she rode along t ~ Marianne Faithfull
Sports quotes by Marianne Faithfull
Today's Little Leaguers, and there are millions of them each year, pick up how to hit and throw and field just by watching games on TV. By the time they're out of high school, the good ones are almost ready to play professional ball. ~ Mickey Mantle
Sports quotes by Mickey Mantle
You're going to feel good. But no matter how much you rehab you do, you can't speed up the healing process. I would rather see a guy come back in 14 months and pitch seven, eight or nine more years then come back in 10 months and get hurt again. You cannot mess with mother nature and father time. Nature will heal it if you give it time. ~ Tommy John
Sports quotes by Tommy John
I'm a competitive person and I love the challenge of mastering new things. ~ Sasha Cohen
Sports quotes by Sasha Cohen
Thinking about the things that happened, I don't know any other ball player would could have done what he (Jackie Robinson) did. To be able to hit with everybody yelling at him. He had to block all that out, block out everything but this ball that is coming in at a hundred miles an hour and he's got a split second to make up his mind if it's in or out or down or coming at his head, a split second to swing. To do what he did has got to be the most tremendous thing I've ever seen in sports. ~ Pee Wee Reese
Sports quotes by Pee Wee Reese
It hurt me a great deal. It put a lot of pressure on me because I was at a young age and the writers around here and throughout the league starting comparing me to Cobb. It put a lot of pressure on me. ~ Al Kaline
Sports quotes by Al Kaline
But, at the moment, when I step on the pitch, when I have the ball I know it's mine. It's just a feeling. ~ Thierry Henry
Sports quotes by Thierry Henry
We didn't call it a sport necessarily, and skaters definitely weren't thought of as athletes, we were thought of as misfits. ~ Mike Vallely
Sports quotes by Mike Vallely
