I am convinced that He (God) does not play dice.
You need to play with supreme confidence, or else you'll lose again, and then losing becomes a habit.
Creative work is play. It is free speculation using materials of one's chosen form.
We could say that meditation doesn't have a reason or doesn't have a purpose. In this respect it's unlike almost all other things we do except perhaps making music and dancing. When we make music we don't do it in order to reach a certain point, such as the end of the composition. If that were the purpose of music then obviously the fastest players would be the best. Also, when we are dancing we are not aiming to arrive at a particular place on the floor as in a journey. When we dance, the journey itself is the point, as when we
play music the playing itself is the point. And exactly the same thing is true in meditation. Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment
If you watch a game, it's fun. If you play at it, it's recreation. If you work at it, it's golf
Solitude is the play field of Satan
Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.
I do not believe we are all created equal. Physical and emotional differences, parental guidance, varying environments, being in the right place at the right time all play a role in enhancing or limiting development. But I do believe every man and woman, if given the opportunity and encouragement to recognize their potential, regardless of background, has the freedom to choose in our world. Will an individual be a taker or a giver in life? Will he be satisfied merely to exist, or will he seek a meaningful purpose? Will he dare to dream the impossible dream?
We cannot change our past. We can not change the fact that people act in a certain way. We can not change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.
If you must play, decide on three things at the start: the rules of the game, the stakes, and the quitting time
Alcoholism isn't a spectator sport. Eventually the whole family gets to play.
Man's maturity: to have regained the seriousness that he had as a child at play.
You learn to see by practice. It's just like playing tennis, you get better the more you play. The more you look around at things, the more you see. The more you photograph, the more you realize what can be photographed and what can't be photographed. You just have to keep doing it.
Photography concentrates one's eye on the superficial. For that reason it obscures the hidden life which glimmers through the outlines of things like a play of light and shade. One can't catch that even with the sharpest lens
Baseball is an allegorical play about America, a poetic, complex, and subtle play of courage, fear, good luck, mistakes, patience about fate, and sober self-esteem
I think a baseball field must be the most beautiful thing in the world. It's so honest and precise. And we play on it. Every star gets humbled. Every mediocre player has a great moment
Golf is a puzzle without an answer. I've played the game for 40 years and I still haven't the slightest idea how to play.
The ardent golfer would play Mount Everest if somebody would put a flagstick on top
The golf links lie so near the mill, That almost every day, The laboring children can look out, And watch the men at play
It's nice to have the opportunity to play for so much money, but it's nicer to win it.
Obviously a deer on the fairway has seen you tee off before and knows that the safest place to be when you play is right down the middle
The most successful way to play golf is the easiest way
Never again clutter your days or nights with so many menial and unimportant things that you have no time to accept a real challenge when it comes along. This applies to play as well as work. A day merely survived is no cause for celebration. You are not here to fritter away your precious hours when you have the ability to accomplish so much by making a slight change in your routine. No more busy work. No more hiding from success. Leave time, leave space, to grow. Now. Now! Not tomorrow!
You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.
Animation is the one type of movie that really does play for the entire audience. Our challenge is to make stories that connect for kids and adults.
