Famous quotes containing the word sport:

    What sport shall we devise here in this garden
    To drive away the heavy thought of care?
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Drag racing is a sport of egos, and it’s all male egos.
    Shirley “Cha Cha” Muldowney (b. 1940)

    Americans living in Latin American countries are often more snobbish than the Latins themselves. The typical American has quite a bit of money by Latin American standards, and he rarely sees a countryman who doesn’t. An American businessman who would think nothing of being seen in a sport shirt on the streets of his home town will be shocked and offended at a suggestion that he appear in Rio de Janeiro, for instance, in anything but a coat and tie.
    Hunter S. Thompson (b. 1939)
