Famous quotes containing the words game, baseball, league and/or major:
“My first big mistake was made when, in a moment of weakness, I consented to learn the game; for a man who can frankly say I do not play bridge is allowed to go over in the corner and run the pianola by himself, while the poor neophyte, no matter how much he may protest that he isnt at all a good player, in fact Im perfectly rotten, is never believed, but dragged into a game where it is discovered, too late, that he spoke the truth.”
—Robert Benchley (18891945)
“Compared to football, baseball is almost an Oriental game, minimizing individual stardom, requiring a wide range of aggressive and defensive skills, and filled with long periods of inaction and irresolution. It has no time limitations. Football, on the other hand, has immediate goals, resolution on every single play, and a lot of violenceitself a highlight. It has clearly distinguishable hierarchies: heroes and drones.”
—Jerry Mander, U.S. advertising executive, author. Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television, ch. 15, Morrow (1978)
“I am not impressed by the Ivy League establishments. Of course they graduate the bestits all theyll take, leaving to others the problem of educating the country. They will give you an education the way the banks will give you moneyprovided you can prove to their satisfaction that you dont need it.”
—Peter De Vries (b. 1910)
“Society needs to condemn a little more and understand a little less.”
