Famous quotes containing the word sport:
“The sport of digging the bait is nearly equal to that of catching the fish, when ones appetite is not too keen.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“What sport shall we devise here in this garden
To drive away the heavy thought of care?”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“Sweet Auburn, loveliest village of the plain,
Where health and plenty cheered the labouring swain,
Where smiling spring its earliest visit paid,
And parting summers lingering blooms delayed,
Dear lovely bowers of innocence and ease,
Seats of my youth, when every sport could please,
How often have I loitered oer the green,
Where humble happiness endeared each scene.”
—Oliver Goldsmith (1730?1774)
