Won Game

Famous quotes containing the words won and/or game:

    Would you hear of an old-time sea-fight?
    Would you learn who won by the light of the moon and stars?
    List to the yarn, as my grandmother’s father the sailor told it to
    me.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    Vanessa wanted to be a ballerina. Dad had such hopes for her.... Corin was the academically brilliant one, and a fencer of Olympic standard. Everything was expected of them, and they fulfilled all expectations. But I was the one of whom nothing was expected. I remember a game the three of us played. Vanessa was the President of the United States, Corin was the British Prime Minister—and I was the royal dog.
    Lynn Redgrave (b. 1943)
