Famous quotes containing the words village and/or sports:

    When the enterprising burglar isn’t burgling,
    When the cut-throat isn’t occupied in crime,
    He loves to hear the little brook a-gurgling,
    And listen to the merry village chime.
    Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836–1911)

    In the end, I think you really only get as far as you’re allowed to get.
    Gayle Gardner, U.S. sports reporter. As quoted in Sports Illustrated, p. 87 (June 17, 1991)
