Favorite Rugby Props Quotes

1. "A few weeks later, I'm in a fluorescent-lit classroom in Chelsea awaiting the start of the official Mensa test. I'm sitting next to a guy who's doing a series of elaborate neck stretches, like we're about to engage in a vigorous rugby match. He's neatly laid out four types of gum on his Formica desk: Juicy Fruit, Wrigley Spearmint, Big Red, and Eclipse. I hate this guy. I hope to God he's not a genius."
Author: A.J. Jacobs
2. "The scrum and the tackle are the two really contentious areas of the game. If you get those two aspects right, most rugby matches will work in your favour."
Author: Alan Lewis
3. "Young women looking after a children's summer camp, the ice-cream vendor's horn (his cart is a gondola on wheels, pushed by two handles), the displays of fruit, red melons with black pips, translucent, sticky grapes -- all are props for the person who can no longer be alone. [1] But the cicadas' tender and bitter chirping, the perfume of water and stars one meets on September nights, the scented paths among the lentisks and the rosebushes, all these are signs of love for the person forced to be alone. [2][1] That is to say, everybody.[2] That is to say, everybody."
Author: Albert Camus
4. "Archie Henderson has won no awards, written no books and never played any representative sport. He was an under-11 tournament-winning tennis player as a boy, but left the game when he discovered rugby where he was one of the worst flyhalves he can remember. This did not prevent him from having opinions on most things in sport.His moment of glory came in 1970 when he predicted—correctly as it turned out—that Griquas would beat the Blue Bulls (then still the meekly named Noord-Transvaal) in the Currie Cup final. It is something for which he has never been forgiven by the powers-that-be at Loftus. Archie has played cricket in South Africa and India and gave the bowling term military medium a new and more pacifist interpretation. His greatest ambition was to score a century on Llandudno beach before the tide came in."
Author: Archie Henderson
5. "AT NIGHTMy bedroom,as I drift.Every night,Jack is with me.He lies down on his side, lengthwise on my bed,and props his head on my pillow. I mirrow his position. He places his hand over mine. I see it,but I don't feel it.We discovered long ago that we can't touch,even in our dreams. I am as much of a ghost to him as he is to me. We are a breath away-and a world apart-from each other.He doesn't know where he goes when he's not with me.He doesn't think he exists anymore,except for in my dreams.I think he is right.And I tell him to hang on.I will never stop dreaming of him.I will find him."
Author: Brodi Ashton
6. "To hear, in the short space of one week, a Scottish terrier booed by an audience and President Roosevelt criticized by Charles Lindbergh was a great strain on our nerves. The props of life seem to be crumbling fast."
Author: E.B. White
7. "As a kid in New Zealand, you play cricket in summer and rugby in winter. I played cricket and hockey. Not rugby. I wasn't brawny enough for it. Or silly enough, perhaps."
Author: Glenn Turner
8. "I turned up my nose at yoga for years. I was a rugby player growing up. But now I know. When I'm on those long international flights, like 22 hours from L.A. to Sydney, I'll get up sometimes and do yoga in the aisle just to stretch out a little bit."
Author: Jason O'Mara
9. "I retired from rugby because I was old and getting really slow."
Author: Javier Bardem
10. "Minsan, ang buhay pag-ibig ng isang tao ay parang balon. Ibibigay mo ang lahat. Kapag natuyo ka na at walang pakinabang, hindi ka na nila papansinin. At malamang mauwi ka bilang isang wishing well, na tatapunan ng barya o gagawing props sa isang pelikula kung saan mula sayo lilitaw si Sadako."
Author: Jayson G. Benedicto
11. "We don't knoe when we're going to make our exits. But one day we'll pass away from this carnival with all its masks and roles, and only a few transient props will remain after us, until they too are swept away. We will step outside time, leave what we call 'reality'."
Author: Jostein Gaarder
12. "I come from a sports family and my husband is a rugby player."
Author: Kirsty Gallacher
13. "Some of the males rose from the table then, making noise about a rugby rematch. MacRieve tensed, but didn't join them.When a couple of the men said things in Gaelic, their tones taunting, she asked, "Are they trash-talking you?""Oh, aye. According to them, I'm the veriest pussy. Already mate-whipped."
Author: Kresley Cole
14. "Utu--Maori revenge. 'Do everything well, boy. Do it better than them. Be a better rugby player, better at your job. Outshine them everywhere. Tramp on their pride. Go far, and leave them sniveling in your dust."
Author: Kris Pearson
15. "Art glows with faith even in its weakest parts. At every moment, writing is an act of self-confidence – the sheerest, most determined, most stubborn self-belief. You CAN have faith and doubt at the same time; the most insecure writer on the planet has faith that shines just as bright as her doubt, and she deserves props for that. It might be hidden deep, she might not feel it and you might not see it, but it's in there, or she wouldn't be able to write."
Author: Kristin Cashore
16. "Soccer is a continuous game, rugby is a continuous game, but for the physical elements that are involved in playing a football game and the number of plays that you play, I don't know that it was ever intended to be a continuous game."
Author: Nick Saban
17. "I was absolutely a non-starter at games. My report for rugby said, 'Nigel's chief contribution is his presence on the field.' I used to pray for rain and sometimes it did rain - and we played anyway."
Author: Nigel Rees
18. "Love and hell are alike in that respect; they are what you bring to them. The script is yours; only the props are furnished."
Author: Parke Godwin
19. "The stuff of nightmare is their plain bread. They butter it with pain. They set their clocks by deathwatch beetles, and thrive the centuries. They were the men with the leather-ribbon whips who sweated up the Pyramids seasoning it with other people's salt and other people's cracked hearts. They coursed Europe on the White Horses of the Plague. They whispered to Caesar that he was mortal, then sold daggers at half-price in the grand March sale. Some must have been lazing clowns, foot props for emperors, princes, and epileptic popes. Then out on the road, Gypsies in time, their populations grew as the world grew, spread, and there was more delicious variety of pain to thrive on. The train put wheels under them and here they run down the log road out of the Gothic and baroque; look at their wagons and coaches, the carving like medieval shrines, all of it stuff once drawn by horses, mules, or, maybe, men."
Author: Ray Bradbury
20. "The time I've spent in professional Premiership club rugby has been invaluable."
Author: Rob Andrew
21. "A truly enlightened attitude to language should simply be to let six thousand or more flowers bloom. Subcultures should be allowed to thrive, not just because it is wrong to squash them, because they enrich the wider culture. Just as Black English has left its mark on standard English Culture, South Africans take pride in the marks of Afrikaans and African languages on their vocabulary and syntax. New Zealand's rugby team chants in Maori, dancing a traditional dance, before matches. French kids flirt with rebellion by using verlan, a slang that reverses words' sounds or syllables (so femmes becomes meuf). Argentines glory in lunfardo, an argot developed from the underworld a centyry ago that makes Argentine Spanish unique still today. The nonstandard greeting "Where y'at?" for "How are you?" is so common among certain whites in New Orleans that they bear their difference with pride, calling themselves Yats. And that's how it should be."
Author: Robert Lane Greene
22. "He was a professional rugby player in the area that I played as a youngster. So a lot of people who I went to school with knew who he was and knew that he was black. So I would get racist taunts in school."
Author: Ryan Giggs
23. "My dad played rugby, so I used to watch a lot of rugby union and rugby league."
Author: Ryan Giggs
24. "What is 'camp'? A much misunderstood word, everyone has their own feel for it. Here is mine:Camp is not in rugby football.Camp is not in the Old Testament.Camp is not in St. Paul.Camp is not in Latin lessons, though it might be in Greek.Camp loves colour.Camp loves light.Camp takes pleasure in the surface of things.Camp loves paint as much as it loves paintings.Camp prefers style to the stylish.Camp is pale.Camp is unhealthy.Camp is not English, damn it.But …Camp is not kitsch.Camp is not drag.Camp is not nearly so superficial as it would have you believe.Camp casts out all fear.Camp is strong.Camp is healthy.And, let's face it …Camp is queer."
Author: Stephen Fry
25. "Dwarfs were not a naturally religious species, but in a world where pit props could crack without warning and pockets of fire damp could suddenly explode they'd seen the need for gods as the sort of supernatural equivalent of a hard hat. Besides, when you hit your thumb with an eight-pound hammer it's nice to be able to blaspheme. It takes a very special and strong-minded kind of atheist to jump up and down with their hand clasped under their other armpit and shout, "Oh, random-fluctuations-in-the-space-time-continuum!" or "Aaargh, primitive-and-outmoded-concept on a crutch!"
Author: Terry Pratchett
26. "I've done a lot of geeky things in my life, but I think the geekiest of all was my first effort to build props and cosplay, when I was about twelve years-old."
Author: Wil Wheaton
