Man Superior

No one man is superior to the game.

- A. Bartlett Giamatti

Own Ruth

We have an obligation to spread amateur baseball both at home and abroad. Building up the game at all levels - Little League, Babe Ruth Leagues, the colleges - is in our own self-interest. That's where the pool of talent is - and also of fans.

- A. Bartlett Giamatti

Human Experience Both

For me, baseball is the most nourishing game outside of literature. They both are re-tellings of human experience.

Life is a difficult game. You can win it only by retaining your birthright to be a person.

Feel Been

I watch a lot of sport on television. I only watch certain sports, and I only watch them live - I don't think I've ever been able to watch a replay of a match or game of which the result was already decided. I feel bound to cheat and look up what can be looked up.

- A. S. Byatt

Been Nintendo

I've been a video game guy since I was eight years old and got my first Nintendo. I've been addicted to video games ever since.

- A.J. Styles

Kind Last

When you're competitive, the last thing you want to do is come out of a game, regardless of what kind of injury it is - whether it's an ankle, a knee, a rib, or a head injury.

- Aaron Rodgers

Think Disadvantage

There should be a minimum on the air pressure but not a maximum. Every game, they're taking air out of the footballs I'm throwing, and I think that's a disadvantage for the way that I like them prepped.

- Aaron Rodgers

Strong Play

As you get older, and this is a young man's game, and people say, 'Well, there's no way I can keep up running the way I'm running; there's no way my arm is going to stay as strong as it is.' It's the challenge of trying to stay in my tip-top shape year in and year out so I can keep playing the way I want to play.

- Aaron Rodgers

Love Week

This is what we get paid to do, is to bring it every week, and I hope the guys would say I bring it every week. I mean, I love this game, and I bring energy.

- Aaron Sorkin

Feet Move

People don't understand that the feel of the surface is so important for a footballer. The ball travels on the surface; our feet move on the surface - all of that goes into how the game is actually played.

- Abby Wambach

Sound Through

This might sound masochistic or narcissistic, I don't know, but when I'm not playing the game, the validations I feel about life are always through the hardships. I relate more to sadness, in a lot of ways, when I'm not playing.

- Abby Wambach

Soccer Living

As soon as I started to realize that I could make a living playing professional soccer, I went to that place where I could torture myself because I knew it would make me better for the championship game.

- Abby Wambach

College Works

When I was in college, I learned to really take care of my body and figured out what works best for me and what doesn't work for me when it comes to my nutrition. That helped so much on the field because soccer is such a fitness-oriented game.

- Abby Wambach

Standards FIFA

There are standards of the game that FIFA governs and promises to uphold.

- Abby Wambach

Mirror Measured

When I look in the mirror, I don't see a person who's made the kind of impact that Mia Hamm made on the game. She's still my idol, the greatest player and the greatest teammate. She achieved so much in so many different ways. What she did for women's soccer can't be measured.

- Abby Wambach

I Think Records

I don't care how many championships you've won or how many records you've broken - if you've had a hand in pushing forward not only a game but women in sport's movement, then I think that's pretty darn good.

- Abby Wambach

Show Bedside

You can't show up at the bedside and then turn on your skills. You have to keep your game sharp all the time.

- Abraham Verghese

Sandwiches About

From the age of 11, I was cleaning floors, washing dishes, making sandwiches and being a cashier. Survival was the name of the game. Life was so hard that I had to struggle to keep up my standards. Under these conditions, I didn't think about science too much.

- Ada Yonath

Young I Think

I don't think rock 'n roll is necessarily a young man's game. I think Neil Young is just as rock'n'roll now as he was in his 20s. I'd like to think we can still be edgy and challenging.

- Adam Clayton

Deal Which

I sang the National Anthem at Dodger Stadium - at a baseball game - which was crazy; there was, like, 60,000 people there, which is a huge deal in America - singing the National Anthem.

- Adam DeVine

Think I Think

I think that governments are going to get disrupted by the blockchain. I think in the same way that the Internet forced everyone to evolve, the Blockchain is going to change the game again.

- Adam Draper

Argument Atmosphere

The more important argument against grade curves is that they create an atmosphere that's toxic by pitting students against one another. At best, it creates a hypercompetitive culture, and at worst, it sends students the message that the world is a zero-sum game: Your success means my failure.

- Adam Grant

Think I Think

I think Lady Gaga is great and is changing pop music and bringing back a certain rock 'n' roll spirit, swagger to the game.

- Adam Lambert

Still Middle

McCain is the kid who was really cool in middle school but never got high school game and people are sick of him acting like he's still popular.

- Adam McKay

Week Cards

Voting for Romney after the train wreck of that was the eight years of W. Bush is like losing your pay check playing a rigged game of three-card monte and then playing the same game again a week later 'cause the cards are a different color.

- Adam McKay

Con Having

This is the ultimate con game - I'm having fun and people pay me to do it.

- Adam Osborne

Love Became

To combat the monotony of gym workouts, I started playing soccer. I looked at workouts as training sessions. My soccer training includes squats, pushups, resistance-band work, and sprints. Ninety minutes of running became part of my love of the game rather than a chore.

- Adam Richman

Move Very

In a crazy way, writing is a lot like any kind of very complex game - like chess, where you have the knowledge as you're composing all of the ramifications of each move, of each choice you make.

- Adam Ross

Development Missed

I had definitely missed the literary development game with Paper Lantern Lit, and writing exclusively wasn't giving me complete fulfillment.

- Adam Silvera

Never Becoming

For me, there was never an end game for becoming a director.

- Adam Shankman

Fringe New Media

I'm a huge fan of the game. It's beyond a fringe benefit of obviously getting to work at the league office. I watch a ton of games in person, on television, on all forms of new media I follow the league. And so it's just beyond my wildest imaginations to me to now be the commissioner of the NBA.

- Adam Silver

Love Enjoy

I love the flow of the game. There's a certain fluidity to basketball. I don't enjoy watching baseball or football in the same way.

- Adam Yauch

Work Believe

I believe in enjoying the game. If you make it too much work, that's not good.

- Adolfo Cambiaso

Play Back

I came back from my ACL injury and won MVP. So, what's a groin? What's an adductor? That's how I look at things. I feel like if you just continue to take care of your body, working out, making sure you're in shape and you stay on top of your game, you can play as long as you want.

- Adrian Peterson

Play Always

I always loved cars. I used to play 'Need for Speed' all the time... any racing game.

- Afrojack

Art Read

There's no way the writing staff of 'Game of Thrones' haven't read 'The Art of War.' There's definitely an influence on 'Game of Thrones' from this book in both a general way and on the character of Lord Baelish and his strategies.

- Aidan Gillen

Been Some

There's a lot of 'Game of Thrones' stuff used in a lot of pastiches. I don't know if I've seen a Lego 'Game of Thrones' yet, but there must be one. And there's an animated thing that's been going on for quite some time, and Littlefinger is a newsreader in it, and it's great.

- Aidan Gillen

Book I Think

One thing I don't want to feel is marketplace pressure, so I'm really glad I enjoy teaching because I can rely on that for a salary. I think it would be such a different game if I had to write a book that has to sell well.

- Aimee Bender

Think Most

I think, like most gamers, I talk a good game.

- Aisha Tyler

Play Movie

Sunday is like this entertainment scrum for me, because I've only got a day, one day of fun. So I want to have brunch, and I want to see a movie, and I want to watch 'Game of Thrones,' and I'm trying to watch 'The Sopranos' from the beginning, and I want to play four hours of video games. So, it's, like, as regimented as my work life.

- Aisha Tyler

Play I Think

I think people assume that because I talk the way that I talk that I grew up with money, and then I've had to say, 'No, I grew up poor.' And then I was like, 'Why do I have to play this game where the only black experience that's authentic is the one where you grew up in poverty?' I mean, it's ridiculous.

- Aisha Tyler

Doing Feels

If you're a game company, you want to create a singular gaming experience, and part of that is doing stuff that nobody else is doing. If you're trying to create a game that feels different, you're going to create a lead that feels different. It's not going to be just another white guy.

- Aisha Tyler

Sometimes I Think

I think that it's interesting how shows like 'Walking Dead' or even 'Game of Thrones,' with all its fantasy elements, have become so popular. Sometimes, though, I get a little bit annoyed because the whole nerd thing taking over and is now cool, and it wasn't cool when I was younger.

- AJ Lee

Play Big

When you get to play with the big boys, your game improves drastically.

- Ajay Naidu

Gift Want

I believe life is a gift, and I want to live it productively. I am not into this numbers game.

- Ajith Kumar

My Life Standard

Journalists ask me all the time, 'Akshay, do you believe in the numbers game?' My standard response: 'I can't count, that's why I have producers and accountants who calculate for me. As long as I have them in my life, I don't need to worry about numbers!'

- Akshay Kumar

Plane Wake

Wake up, Carolee, the plane is waiting for us, we have to get to the game.

- Al Davis

Chess Set

Pitches are like pages of a book; they're so important. The chess game; how I set you up early, and how I'll do it differently later.

- Al Leiter

Like Feels

I look at this as a second life. Every game feels like an event. Every pitch matters. I need that. It elevates your aggressiveness.

- Al Leiter

Love Very

I love the game very much, but when you were a certain type of player for a few years, being a front-end starter, that's the way I still think I can pitch. But the body tells you no.

- Al Leiter

Big Very

It's a very big mental game, all day leading up to warm-ups. You're not sure if your curveball will break, or will you be able to throw it over the plate? It's all negative thoughts going into the game.

- Al Leiter

Hockey Me

People know me from a hockey game, from an earthquake, from the O.J case.

- Al Michaels

Dominant Discussing

If there are dominant teams, people enjoy discussing whether that's good or bad for the game, and if there aren't any dominant teams, then people enjoy discussing that.

- Al Michaels

Studio Chest

The game is No. 1. You are an adjunct to the game. In a studio, there is no game. You are the star. That's why you are there. For the game, you can't go away from the game and beat your chest. People are there to watch the game. You are there to supplement, not to override or overwhelm.

- Al Michaels

Genius Institutions

The genius of our institutions is democratic - baseball is a democratic game.

- Al Spalding

Wait Hours

Two hours is about as long as any American can wait for the close of a baseball game, or anything else for that matter.

- Al Spalding

Worry About

I hear people saying 'the way the game should be played'. Rubbish. That's the worst saying in football. You win the game, then worry about the way it should be played.

- Alan Hansen

Play Always

When I was playing football, I always felt in complete control. When I play golf and come under pressure, it's a completely different ball game.

- Alan Hansen

Next Toast

If you're in the game long enough, you're going to be the toast of the town one day, and the next day you'll be toast.

- Alan K. Simpson

Achieve Aspect

In every aspect of life, have a game plan, and then do your best to achieve it.

- Alan Kulwicki

Pretty Been

The objective of a referee is not to get mentioned. I tell a lot of young referees that not being mentioned is king. If you can achieve that, that then it has been a pretty good game.

- Alan Lewis

Own Some

I do my own analysis on the teams I am refereeing. I will know some of the personalities, the players who could be difficult customers in a scrum situation, the ones I am going to have to really work hard on early in the game to get what I want.

- Alan Lewis

Rugby Will

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.

- Alan Lewis

May Hinge

Coaches do so much research about a referee because they believe refereeing is such a crucial part of the game that the result may hinge on what we say or do. They probably know more about me than I know myself!

- Alan Lewis

Play Laws

My job is to persuade people to toe the line and play within the laws of the game.

- Alan Lewis

Very Fine

We go there with confidence, but we know there is a very fine line between success and failure in this game.

- Alan Shearer

Golf Whenever

Whenever I have any spare time I have a game of golf.

- Alan Shearer

Exciting Another

It was great to do and it's exciting to do those things. That's another thing, that one enjoys the game.

- Albert Finney

Play Mike

Mike Matheny, Fernando Vina, Edgar Renteria, Mark McGwire and Darryl Kile... before he died. Those guys took me under their wing and taught me the way to play the game the right way.

- Albert Pujols

Politics Other

It used to be that readers were relegated because they considered themselves far above society, and so the metaphor of the ivory tower developed. Now there's still this idea that the reader doesn't take part in the social game and in politics, the res publica, but for other reasons: he doesn't do it because he's not making any money.

- Alberto Manguel

Work Been

I'm not a starstuck dude. I've been in this game too long for that, but I do respect and acknowledge real work and real work ethic.

- Aldis Hodge

Been Other

My brother does a series of movies called 'The Purge,' and they have the third one coming out this year, and then also he'll be starring in the second season of 'Secrets and Lies.' We want each other to win because we are a team, and this is how we've been since day one. That's the end game for all of us in the Hodge house.

- Aldis Hodge

Here Beg

I cannot stand that whole game of confession, that is: Here I have sinned, now I'm confessing my sins, and describing my path of sin and then in the act of confession I beg for your forgiveness and redemption.

- Aleksandar Hemon

Trust More

Trust the Canadians to produce a game about mutual funds that is actually more boring than the real thing.

- Alex Berenson

Bring Times

Well, football is a hard game; there's no denying it. It's a game that can bring out the worst in you, at times.

- Alex Ferguson

Need Other

You are responsible to each other because when you win a game of football, you only need eight players to perform well.

- Alex Ferguson

Home Run Some

There's something magical about a home run. It almost violates the space of the stadium. It's a game of the imagination in some ways. Baseball.

- Alex Gibney

About Game Of Thrones

For 'Game of Thrones,' I realized immediately that it was about the characters.

- Alex Graves

Always Oblique

There's always the pressure on the director of how to transition from one scene to another, especially when it can really be oblique on 'Game of Thrones.'

- Alex Graves

Show Before

'Game of Thrones' is the broadest of narratives. I don't know if anyone in the U.S. has done a story on such a large scale before, both in terms of what George R.R. Martin wrote and what's on the show.

- Alex Graves

Reason Very

It's very unusual on 'Game of Thrones' for there to be a deleted scene because the scripts are pretty locked in. There's rarely a reason to say, 'Hey, we don't need this scene.'

- Alex Graves

Going Which

No director directs 'Game of Thrones' without reading all the episodes and knowing what's going on. All the episodes are written in advance, so you can do that, which is an important point.

- Alex Graves

Down Show

You pull anyone from an alien planet down to Earth, and you want to show them great work, show them Tywin Lannister on 'Game of Thrones.' I mean, it's just as good as it gets.

- Alex Graves

Hollywood Been

I was really, really stagnating and getting bored in the steady work of television and didn't really know what movies I would be making that Hollywood would be making, and then I went on to 'Game of Thrones,' and it was just like, everything I've been waiting to do was handed to me by really nice people.

- Alex Graves

Some Very

The hardest part of 'Game of Thrones' is there is so much incredible talent bouncing off the walls that you'll actually miss some of them, and not getting it is very intimidating.

- Alex Graves

Very Similar

'Game of Thrones' is shot on a very similar kind of schedule to a TV show, but there's a lot more time and focus put into the script.

- Alex Graves

Best Way Viewer

When you're watching a Hitchcock movie, you, for most of the movie, are playing the guessing game. What's the endgame? What's the plot? How are these people involved? It's the best way to tell the story, and as a viewer, that's what you want to experience.

- Alex Kurtzman

Been Dad

My dad has been to every soccer game that I've played in, both at the amateur level and at the professional level, and he always had great things to say whether we won or we lost, whether I felt great or not so great.

- Alex Morgan

More Line

My favorite goals are the ones when there's so much pressure. I focus more when the game is on the line.

- Alex Morgan

Think Respecting

I don't think the entire world respects women in sport. But if FIFA start respecting the women's game more, others will follow.

- Alex Morgan

Play Very

Around the age of 14, I was very discouraged from a coach. It was my first youth club team while playing soccer. She told me at the time that I wasn't good enough to play on the team, that I would never get into the game.

- Alex Morgan

Leave Top

When I leave the game, I want to go out on top.

- Alex Morgan

Love Soccer

I played volleyball, basketball, softball, and I started to love soccer the most around 7-8 years old because it was a physical game. I could use my speed and strength to my advantage.

- Alex Morgan

Prepare Always

Pregame, I eat pancakes for a meal. I always do mental visualization before the game to prepare myself. Postgame, I typically take ice baths.

- Alex Morgan

Practice Replicate

In the 123rd minute of the semifinal game at the Olympics against Canada, I scored the game-winning goal that brought us to the finals. You can't replicate those do-or-die moments in practice or a friendly game.

- Alex Morgan

Love Next

I love the challenge of the game. I love the work. My goal right now is to have a season next year that will make people forget about this one. I'll use things like this for motivation. I'm pumped. I'm hungry.

- Alex Rodriguez

Before Established

It's tougher when you're established. Before, I'd see 13, 14, 15 pitches that I could drive in a game. Now, I see one, two or three, so I have to be better.

- Alex Rodriguez
