Free Throws Attempted

Famous quotes containing the words free, throws and/or attempted:

    In private life he was good-natured, chearful, social; inelegant in his manners, loose in his morals. He had a coarse, strong wit, which he was too free of for a man in his station, as it is always inconsistent with dignity. He was very able as a minister, but without a certain elevation of mind necessary for great good, or great mischief.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    As the traveller who has lost his way, throws his reins on his horse’s neck, and trusts to the instinct of the animal to find his road, so must we do with the divine animal who carries us through this world.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Many have attempted unnatural acts, but Nature has always shown the way.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
