Famous quotes containing the words league, final and/or football:

    I am not impressed by the Ivy League establishments. Of course they graduate the best—it’s all they’ll take, leaving to others the problem of educating the country. They will give you an education the way the banks will give you money—provided you can prove to their satisfaction that you don’t need it.
    Peter De Vries (b. 1910)

    The prologues are over. It is a question, now,
    Of final belief. So, say that final belief
    Must be in a fiction. It is time to choose.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    You can’t be a Real Country unless you have A BEER and an airline—it helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a BEER.
    Frank Zappa (1940–1993)
