Famous quotes containing the words sports and/or formal:

    It was so hard to pry this door open, and if I mess up I know the people behind me are going to have it that much harder. Because then there’s living proof. They can sit around and say, “See? It doesn’t work.” I don’t want to be their living proof.
    Gayle Gardner, U.S. sports reporter. As quoted in Sports Illustrated, p. 87 (June 17, 1991)

    On every formal visit a child ought to be of the party, by way of provision for discourse.
    Jane Austen (1775–1817)
