Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Alexander Hamilton

If we set out with ... a scrupulous regard to the Constitution, the government will acquire a spirit and a tone productive of permanent blessings to the community. If on the contrary, ... the Constitution is slighted, or explained away, upon every frivolous pretext, the future of government will be feeble, distracted and arbitrary. The rights of the subjects will be the sport of every party vicissitude. There will be no settled rule of conduct, but everything will fluctuate with the alternate prevalency of contending factions. — Alexander Hamilton

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Rafael Nadal

When one player is better than you, at this moment, the only thing you can do is work, try to find solutions and try to wait a little bit for your time.

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Stacy Allison

That's exactly what climbing is to me ... Expression. What a painter does on a canvas, what a writer can do with the twenty-six letters in the alphabet. It's the key that unlocks my spirit, the clearest representation of who I am. When I'm focused, climbing is almost an unconscious act for me. I don't have to drive myself, I'm already driven. — Stacy Allison

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Tawni O'Dell

Now it's a loud, slick sports bar like a thousand others across the nation. For some reason, they kept the name and also attempted to keep some of the original spirit by covering the walls with a pasteurized mishmash of blue-collar manliness: sports memorabilia, brand-new parts of old-model cars, a length of shiny railroad track, a mounted deer head. Now just as many women come here as men. The place reverberates with the sound of raised voices trying to compete with the noise coming from the twenty TVs. On weekends they compound the problem by having live music. — Tawni O'Dell

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Prince Harry

I have witnessed first-hand how the power of sport can positively impact the lives of wounded, injured and sick Servicemen and women in their journey of recovery. The Invictus Games will focus on what they can achieve post injury and celebrate their fighting spirit, through an inclusive sporting competition that recognises the sacrifice they have made. I am extremely proud that we are bringing an event like this to the UK for the first time and believe it can have a long lasting impact on the well-being of those who have served their nations so bravely. — Prince Harry

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Tom Seaver

Only three or four outs directly affect the outcome of any given game ... One of the greatest challenges of pitching is to recognize these critical situations and rise to the occasion with consistency and a competitive spirit. — Tom Seaver

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Janet Guthrie

Racing is a matter of spirit not strength. — Janet Guthrie

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Manfred Von Richthofen

Sometimes, however, the Gaelic blood asserts itself. The Frenchmen will then attack. But the French attacking spirit is like bottled lemonade. It lacks tenacity. The Englishmen, on the other hand, one notices that they are of Germanic blood. Sportsmen easily take to flying, and Englishmen see in flying nothing but a sport. — Manfred Von Richthofen

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Naveen Jain

As a father, I believe that involving children in sports at a young age is generally, a wise proposition. I believe that healthy competition is ... well ... healthy; that sporting events foster a spirit of teamwork that far surpasses the events themselves; and that active participation keeps children moving and is good for their self-esteem. — Naveen Jain

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Lincoln Steffens

Chicago will give you a chance. The sporting spirit is the spirit of Chicago. — Lincoln Steffens

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Douglas MacArthur

Competitive sports keep alive in us a spirit and vitality. Sports teach the strong to know when they are weak and the brave to face themselves when they are afraid; to be proud and unbowed in defeat, and yet humble and gentle in victory; to master ourselves before we attempt to master others; to learn to laugh, yet never forget how to weep; and to give the predominance of courage over timidity. — Douglas MacArthur

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Sachin Tendulkar

Let us celebrate the spirit of sport through the National Games — Sachin Tendulkar

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Anthony Hecht

If the heart has its reasons, perhaps the body
Has its own lumbering sort of carnal spirit,
Felt in the tingling bruises of collision,
And known to captains as esprit de corps. — Anthony Hecht

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Jandy Nelson

Because in addition to joining dangerous gangs and having parties, this Noah also goes out with girls, keeps his hair buzzed and tidy, hangs at The Spot, watches sports with Dad. For all other sixteen-year-old boys: fine. For Noah, it signifies one thing: death of the spirit. A book with the wrong story in it. — Jandy Nelson

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Rei Kawakubo

Not only in the creative world but also in the sports world. The most successful achievers in sports are people that are really driven and have that spirit of hunger. — Rei Kawakubo

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Jacques Ellul

Sport carries on without deviation the mechanical tradition of furnishing relief and distraction to the worker after he has finished his work proper so that he is at no time independent of one technique or another. In sport the citizen of the technical society finds the same spirit, criteria, morality, actions and objectives in short, all the technical laws and customs which he encounters in office or factory. — Jacques Ellul

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Riane Eisler

The Cretans' more natural attitudes toward sex would also have had other consequences equally difficult to perceive under the prevailing paradigm, wherein religious dogma often views sex as more sinful than violence. As Hawkes writes, "The Cretans seem to have reduced and diverted their aggressiveness through a free and well-balanced sexual life."33 Along with their enthusiasm for sports and dancing and their creativity and love of life, these liberated attitudes toward sex seem to have contributed to the generally peaceful and harmonious spirit predominant in Cretan life. — Riane Eisler

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Aaron Sorkin

By and large, the mission of any ghost is to offer humility. They point out what's important by mocking what is not.
(Joshua Malina, Sports Night) — Aaron Sorkin

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Dan Millman

Nature and training (in any sport or art) can teach us all the spiritual laws I describe in another book, The Laws of Spirit. But now I'm happy to share these four purposes of life that lend meaning and direction to anyone's life, especially those in transition, going through changes. — Dan Millman

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Dan Millman

Masters of one art have mastered all because they have mastered themselves. With dominion over both mind and muscle, they demonstrate power, serenity, and spirit. They not only have talent for their sport, they have an expanded capacity for life. The experts shine in the competitive arena; the masters shine everywhere. — Dan Millman

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Frederick Lenz

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Richard M. Daley

The spirit of the Olympic movement is great for young people because it teaches them about the training and discipline required to compete. Even if they don't make the teams, they can rededicate their lives to the art of sport, discipline, and physical fitness. — Richard M. Daley

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Pierre De Coubertin

In the name of all competitors, I promise that we will take part in these Olympic Games, respecting and abiding by all the rules which govern them in the true spirit of sportsmanship, for the glory of sport and the honour of our teams. — Pierre De Coubertin

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Phil Knight

Like books, sports give people a sense of having lived other lives, of taking part in other people's victories. And defeats. When sports are at their best, the spirit of the fan merges with the spirit of the athlete. — Phil Knight

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Eric Berlin

If teams had to name themselves honestly, they'd all be the Pimple-Faced Teenagers. — Eric Berlin

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By George Orwell

Serious sport has nothing to do with fair play. It is bound up with hatred, jealousy, boastfulness, disregard of all rules and sadistic pleasure in witnessing violence. In other words, it is war minus the shooting.
(in "The Sporting Spirit", Tribune, GB, London, December 1945) — George Orwell

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By John Milton

Alas! What boots it with uncessant care To tend the homely slighted Shepherd's trade, And strictly meditate the thankless muse; Were it not better done as others use, To sport with Amaryllis in the shade, Or with the tangles of Neaera's hair? Fame is the spur that the clear spirit doth raise (That last infirmity of noble mind) To scorn delights, and live laborious days; But the fair guerdon when we hope to find, And think to burst out into sudden blaze, Comes the blind Fury with th'abhorred shears, And slits the thin-spun life. — John Milton

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Richard Attias

Sport is one of the few spaces where people can learn about different cultures in a spirit of trust and friendship. — Richard Attias

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Michael Josephson

Sportsmanship is the ethical and moral dimension of sports. It is demonstrated by a number of attributes and attitudes such as fair play, respect for the rules and traditions of the sport and various traits of good character including integrity (abiding by the letter and spirit of the rules and concepts of honor); demonstrated respect for others including teammates, opponents, officials and spectators; accountability, self-control, and graciousness in victory and defeat. — Michael Josephson

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Simon Gray

I'm fanatical about sport: there seems to me something almost religious about the fact that human beings can organise play, the spirit of play. — Simon Gray

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Ralph Waldo Emerson

Nothing will supply the want of sunshine to peaches, and, to make knowledge valuable, you must have the cheerfulness of wisdom. Whenever you are sincerely pleased you are nourished. The joy of the spirit indicates its strength. All healthy, things are sweet-tempered. Genius works in sport, and goodness smiles to the last. — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Ralph Waldo Emerson

Yet time and space are but inverse measures of the force of the soul. The spirit sports with time. — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Greg Hartung

There is a timelessness about sport. Like music and art, it is a quality that cuts across generations and nations. It provides a link between Australians of succeeding generations whether urging on a Donald Bradman or cheering and rejoicing in the America's Cup victory. Call it the spirit, the soul of sport - it will be in 2001 the same as it was in 1901. — Greg Hartung

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Juliana Berners

The sport and game of angling is the true means and cause that brings a man into a merry spirit, which makes a flowering age and a long one. — Juliana Berners

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Dot Richardson

The Most Important Thing I Know About the Spirit of Sport ... It instills in us the ability to recognize and appreciate the talents of others as well as the gifts we have been given and the ability to work with others as a team. It also allows us to face the challenge of competition, learn from our successes and failures, altogether making us true champions in life. — Dot Richardson

Spirit Of Sports Quotes By Franklin Foer

Soccer's appeal lay in its opposition to the other popular sports. For children of the sixties, there was something abhorrent about enrolling kids in American football, a game where violence wasn't just incidental but inherent. They didn't want to teach the acceptability of violence, let alone subject their precious children to the risk of physical maiming. Baseball, where each batter must stand center stage four or five times a game, entailed too many stressful, potentially ego-deflating encounters. Basketball, before Larry Bird's prime, still had the taint of the ghetto.
But soccer represented something very different. It was a tabula rasa, a sport onto which a generation of parents could project their values. Quickly, soccer came to represent the fundamental tenets of yuppie parenting, the spirit of Sesame Street and Dr. Benjamin Spock. — Franklin Foer
