sports biography at  quote by nigel hamilton

“Sports biography at its best. Rich in period detail, anecdote, and fresh perspective, Strong Boy paints both the good and the bad sides of success, as America's growing celebrity culture turned a simple Irish American gladiator into a national, in fact international hero. A very human story with profound parallels for our sports-obsessed culture today!”

“Sport, properly directed, develops character, makes a man courageous, a generous loser, and a gracious victor; it refines the senses, gives intellectual penetration, and steels the will to endurance. It is not merely a physical development then. Sport, rightly understood, is an occupation of the whole man, and while perfecting the body as an instrument of the mind, it also makes the mind itself a more refined instrument for the search and communication of truth and helps man to achieve that end to which all others must be subservient, the service and praise of his Creator.”

“Sport, rightly conceived, is an occupation carried out by the whole man.”

Pope Pius XII (Source:

“Sport is something that is very inspirational for young people.”

sport at its best  quote by richard j corman

“Sport, at its best, at its most human, is able to inspire an innocence and joy that is unique to each of us.”

Richard J. Corman (Source:

Richard Jeni (Source:

“Sport strips away personality, letting the white bone of character shine through. Sport gives players an opportunity to know and test themselves. The great difference between sport and art is that sport, like a sonnet, forces beauty within its own system. Art, on the other hand, cyclically destroys boundaries and breaks free.”

Rita Mae Brown (Source:

“Sports like baseball, basketball, and hockey develop muscles. That's why Americans have the strongest eyes in the world.”

Russell Crowe (Source:
sports are too much  quote by roger angell

“Sports are too much with us. Late and soon, sitting and watching - mostly watching on television - we lay waste our powers of identification and enthusiasm and, in time, attention as more and more closing rallies and crucial putts and late field goals and final playoffs and sudden deaths and world records and world championships unreel themselves ceaselessly before our half-lidded eyes.”

Roger Angell (Source:

“Sport is not about being wrapped up in cotton wool. Sport as about adapting to the unexpected and being able to modify plans at the last minute. Sport, like all life, is about taking risks.”

Roger Bannister (Source:

sports taught me how quote by ken carter

“Sports taught me how to compete on the court, and taught me how to compete in life. Sports and life run parallel with one another.”

Ken Carter (Source:

“Sports exact too harsh a toll on our beautiful women. Like engendered species, they should be protected, and instead, we exploit them and demand they fly too close to the sun for our amusement.
