Famous quotes containing the word run:

    I don’t know if everybody is ready to hear a woman tell them so-and-so is going to run off left tackle. But you know what? They’re going to hear it.
    Lesley Visser, U.S. sports reporter and announcer. As quoted in Sports Illustrated, p. 85 (June 17, 1991)

    We all run on two clocks. One is the outside clock, which ticks away our decades and brings us ceaselessly to the dry season. The other is the inside clock, where you are your own timekeeper and determine your own chronology, your own internal weather and your own rate of living. Sometimes the inner clock runs itself out long before the outer one, and you see a dead man going through the motions of living.
    Max Lerner (b. 1902)
