What is play?

Famous quotes containing the word play:

    Every time a child organizes and completes a chore, spends some time alone without feeling lonely, loses herself in play for an hour, or refuses to go along with her peers in some activity she feels is wrong, she will be building meaning and a sense of worth for herself and harmony in her family.
    Barbara Coloroso (20th century)

    The final key to the way I promote is bravado. I play to people’s fantasies. People may not always think big themselves, but they can still get very excited by those who do. That’s why a little hyperbole never hurts.
    Donald Trump (b. 1946)

    ... there is ... a big aspect of play in writing novels, and making the story more and more elaborate is just more and more fun.
    Gish Jen (b. 1956)
