Famous quotes containing the words match and/or play:

    A strong tiger is no match for a pack of wolves.
    Chinese proverb.

    In 1600 the specialization of games and pastimes did not extend beyond infancy; after the age of three or four it decreased and disappeared. From then on the child played the same games as the adult, either with other children or with adults. . . . Conversely, adults used to play games which today only children play.
    Philippe Ariés (20th century)
