Famous quotes containing the words basket and/or ball:
“For the mother who has opted to stay home, the question remains: Having perfected her role as a caretaker, can she abdicate control to less practiced individuals? Having put all her identity eggs in one basket, can she hand over the basket freely? Having put aside her own ambitions, can she resist imposing them on her children? And having set one example, can she teach another?”
—Melinda M. Marshall (20th century)
“Innings and afternoons. Fly lost in sunset.
Throwing arm gone bad. Theres your old ball game.
Cool reek of the field. Reek of companions.”
—Robert Fitzgerald (19101985)
