Quote: Richard Corliss Change The typical baseball play is a pitcher throwing a ball and the batter not swinging at it, while the other players watch.

If you seek tranquility,...
Quote: Marcus Aurelius If you seek tranquility, do less. Or do what’s essential – what the logos of a social being requires, and in the requisite way. Which brings a double satisfaction: to do less, better. Because most of what we say and do is not essential. If you can eliminate it, you’ll have more time, and more tranquility. Ask yourself at every moment, ‘Is this necessary?’ Marcus Aurelius

Quote: Christopher Walken Funny Laurence Olivier said in an interview once that when he plays a tragedy he always aims for the funny parts, and the other way around.
