wild horse
painting: Wild Horse by Elena Drobychevskaja

sinking sand

Echo and the Bunnymen, Bring on the Dancing Horses


I am a feather on the bright sky
I am the blue horse that runs in the plain
I am the fish that rolls, shining, in the water
I am the shadow that follows a child

N Scott Momaday, The Delight Song of Tsoai-talee


somewhere up there he's waiting for me

Dean Smith, basketball coach


Once you've done the mental work, there comes a point you have to throw yourself into the action and put your heart on the line. That means not only being brave, but being compassionate towards yourself, your teammates and your opponents.
Phil Jackson, basketball coach


This is no democracy. It is a dictatorship. I am the law.
Coach Herman Boone, Remember the Titans


Serious sport has nothing to do with fair play. It is bound up with hatred, jealousy, boastfulness, disregard of all rules and sadistic pleasure in witnessing violence.
George Orwell, Shooting an Elephant


As to the moral phase of judo - not to speak of the discipline of the exercise room involving the observance of the regular rules of etiquette, courage, and perseverance, kindness to and respect for others, impartiality and fair play so much emphasized in Western athletic training - judo has special importance in Japan.
Jigoro Kano


The coaches beat the athletes with bamboo swords and told them to die, a senior Japanese Olympic Committee official said. They also slapped the women's cheeks, shoved their breasts and kicked them.
