Famous quotes containing the words basketball and/or eastern:
“Perhaps basketball and poetry have just a few things in common, but the most important is the possibility of transcendence. The opposite is labor. In writing, every writer knows when he or she is laboring to achieve an effect. You want to get from here to there, but find yourself willing it, forcing it. The equivalent in basketball is aiming your shot, a kind of strained and usually ineffective purposefulness. What you want is to be in some kind of flow, each next moment a discovery.”
—Stephen Dunn (b. 1939)
“The Eastern steamboat passed us with music and a cheer, as if they were going to a ball, when they might be going toDavys locker.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
