[Sports Represent A Shared Vision Of How We Continue, As Individual, Team, Or Community, To Experience A Happiness Or Absence Of Care So Intense, So Rare, And So Fleeting That We Associate Their Experience With Experience Otherwise Described As Religious Or We Say The Sports Experience Must Be The Tattered Remnant Of An Experience Which Was Once Described, When First Felt, As Religious.]

Quotes About Being Stingy With Money

"If Id had a good week—a real "Christian" week"—I felt close to God. When Sunday came around, I would feel like lifting my head and hands in worship, almost as if to say, "God, here I am . . . I know Youre excited about seeing me this week." If Id had a stellar week, I loved being in Gods presence and was sure God was pretty stoked about having me there too. But the opposite was also true. If I hadnt done a good job at being a real Christian, I felt pretty distant from God. If Id fallen to some temptations, been a jerk to my wife, dodged some easy opportunities to share Christ, was stingy with my money, forgotten to recycle, kicked the dog, etc. . . . well, on those weeks I felt like God wanted nothing to do with me. When I came to church, I had no desire to lift my soul up to God. I was pretty sure He didnt want to see me either. I could feel His displeasure—His lack of approval. Thats because I didnt really understand the gospel. Or, at least I had forgotten it." - Author: J.D. Greear

Quotes About Batting Cricket

"Batting, for once, in his accustomed slot at No. 3, Tavaré took his usual session to get settled, but after lunch opened out boldly. He manhandled Bruce Yardley, whod hitherto bowled his offbreaks with impunity. He coolly asserted himself against the pace bowlers, whod elsewhere given him such hurry. Ive often hoped on behalf of cricketers, though never with such intensity as on that day, and never afterwards have I felt so validated. Even his failure to reach a hundred was somehow right: life, I was learning, never quite delivered all the goods. But occasionally—just occasionally—it offered something to keep you interested." - Author: Gideon Haigh

Quotes About Wisdom And Kindness

"It has occurred to me, brother, that wisdom may not be the end to everything. Goodness and kindness are, perhaps, beyond wisdom. Is it not possible that the ultimate end is music and gaiety and a dance of joy? Wisdom is the oldest of all things. Wisdom is all head and no heart.Behold, brother, you are being crushed under the weight of your head. You are dying of old age while you are yet a child." - Author: James Stephens
