Famous quotes containing the word playing:

    Is not the tremendous strength in men of the impulse to creative work in every field precisely due to their feeling of playing a relatively small part in the creation of living beings, which constantly impels them to an overcompensation in achievement?
    Karen Horney (1885–1952)

    Give me mine angle, we’ll to th’ river; there,
    My music playing far off, I will betray
    Tawny-finned fishes; my bended hook shall pierce
    Their slimy jaws; and as I draw them up,
    I’ll think them every one an Antony,
    And say, “Ah, ha! y’ are caught.”
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The sailor is frankness, the landsman is finesse. Life is not a game with the sailor, demanding the long head—no intricate game of chess where few moves are made in straight-forwardness and ends are attained by indirection, an oblique, tedious, barren game hardly worth that poor candle burnt out in playing it.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
