Purpose Yards

Famous quotes containing the words purpose and/or yards:

    Let our hearts, as subtle masters do,
    Stir up their servants to an act of rage
    And after seem to chide ‘em. This shall make
    Our purpose necessary, and not envious;
    Which so appearing to the common eyes,
    We shall be called purgers, not murderers.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    In football they measure forty-yard sprints. Nobody runs forty yards in basketball. Maybe you run the ninety-four feet of the court; then you stop, not on a dime, but on Miss Liberty’s torch. In football you run over somebody’s face.
    Donald Hall (b. 1928)
