[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.]

BH Liddell Hart Quotes

"The history of ancient Greece showed that, in a democracy, emotion dominates reason to a greater extent than in any other political system, thus giving freer rein to the passions which sweep a state into war and prevent it getting out—at any point short of the exhaustion and destruction of one or other of the opposing sides. Democracy is a system which puts a brake on preparation for war, aggressive or defensive, but it is not one that conduces to the limitation of warfare or the prospects of a good peace. No political system more easily becomes out of control when passions are aroused. These defects have been multiplied in modern democracies, since their great extension of size and their vast electorate produce a much larger volume of emotional pressure."

JR Ward Quotes

"Listen, Cormia, I need you to know something."As she looked down at him, his eyes were the most amazing thing shed ever seen, hypnotic, the color of citrines in firelight. "Yes?""I love you."Her heart clenched. "What?""I love you." He shook his head and eased back so he was sitting cross-legged. "Oh, Christ... Ive made such a mess out of everything. But I love you. I wanted you to know it because... Well, shit, because it matters, and because it means I cant be with other Chosen. I cant be with them, Cormia. Its you or its nobody."
