Famous quotes containing the words kent, state, golden, flashes and/or football:

    Main Street was never the same. I read Gide and tried to
    translate Proust. Now nothing is real except French wine.
    For absurdity is reality, my loneliness unreal, my mind tired.
    And I shall die an old Parisian.
    —Conrad Kent Rivers (1933–1968)

    In the Corner Store, near the village center, hangs a large sign reading: ‘After 40 years of credit business, we have closed our book of Sorrow.’
    —For the State of Maine, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    For they had golden earrings, because they were Ishmaelites.
    Bible: Hebrew Judges 8:24.

    Dostoevski is not a great writer, but a rather mediocre one—with flashes of excellent humor, but, alas, with wastelands of literary platitudes in between.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    People stress the violence. That’s the smallest part of it. Football is brutal only from a distance. In the middle of it there’s a calm, a tranquility. The players accept pain. There’s a sense of order even at the end of a running play with bodies stewn everywhere. When the systems interlock, there’s a satisfaction to the game that can’t be duplicated. There’s a harmony.
    Don Delillo (b. 1926)
