King's Lynn Stars

King's Lynn Stars are a motorcycle speedway team who compete in the British Elite League. The nickname "Stars" comes from the defunct Norwich Stars team. The team was founded in 1965 and has been running continually since then, except for 1996 when King's Lynn failed to have a team competing in the British League system.

Famous quotes containing the words king, lynn and/or stars:

    King Herod shrieking vengeance at the curled
    Up knees of Jesus choking in the air,

    A king of speechless clods and infants. Still
    The world out-Herods Herod;
    Robert Lowell (1917–1977)

    In the quilts I had found good objects—hospitable, warm, with soft edges yet resistant, with boundaries yet suggesting a continuous safe expanse, a field that could be bundled, a bundle that could be unfurled, portable equipment, light, washable, long-lasting, colorful, versatile, functional and ornamental, private and universal, mine and thine.
    Radka Donnell-Vogt, U.S. quiltmaker. As quoted in Lives and Works, by Lynn F. Miller and Sally S. Swenson (1981)

    The sun, the moon and the stars would have disappeared long ago ... had they happened to be within the reach of predatory human hands.
    Havelock Ellis (1859–1939)
