Recreation is intended to the mind as whetting is to the scythe, to sharpen the edge of it, which otherwise would grow dull and blunt. He, therefore, that spends his whole time in recreation is every whetting, never mowing; his grass may grow and his steed starve. As, contrarily, he that always toils and never recreates, is ever mowing, never whetting; laboring too much to little purpose; as good no scythe as no edge.
- Bishop Joseph Hall

- Sir John Lubbock
You find that you have peace of mind and can enjoy yourself, get more sleep, and rest when you know that it was a one hundred percent effort that you gave - win or lose.
- Gordie Howe
Make sure you never, never argue at night. You just lose a good night's sleep, and you can't settle anything until morning anyway.
- Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy
