Famous quotes containing the words men, division and/or basketball:

    The gods being always close to men perceive those who afflict others with unjust devices and do not fear the wrath of heaven.
    Hesiod (c. 8th century B.C.)

    That crazed girl improvising her music,
    Her poetry, dancing upon the shore,
    Her soul in division from itself
    Climbing, falling she knew not where,
    Hiding amid the cargo of a steamship
    Her knee-cap broken.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Perhaps basketball and poetry have just a few things in common, but the most important is the possibility of transcendence. The opposite is labor. In writing, every writer knows when he or she is laboring to achieve an effect. You want to get from here to there, but find yourself willing it, forcing it. The equivalent in basketball is aiming your shot, a kind of strained and usually ineffective purposefulness. What you want is to be in some kind of flow, each next moment a discovery.
    Stephen Dunn (b. 1939)
