Famous quotes containing the word play:
“Teach a child to play solitaire, and shell be able to entertain herself when theres no one around. Teach her tennis, and shell know what to do when shes on a court. But raise her to feel comfortable in nature, and the whole planet is her home.”
—Joyce Maynard (20th century)
“There has been in our time a lack of reliance on language and a lack of experimentation which are frightening to anyone who sees them as symptoms. We know the phenomenon of stage-fright: it holds the player shivering, incapable of speech or action. Perhaps there is an audience-fright which the play can feel, which leaves him with these incapacities.”
—Muriel Rukeyser (19131980)
“But I shall hear without pain, that I play the courtier very ill, and talk of that which I do not well understand.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
