William Campbell quotes

  • I used to believe in forever, but forever's too good to be true

  • The gods have fled, I know. My sense is the gods have always been essentially absent. I do not believe human beings have played games or sports from the beginning merely to summon or to please or to appease the gods. If anthropologists and historians believe that, it is because they believe whatever they have been able to recover about what humankind told the gods humankind was doing. I believe we have played games, and watched games, to imitate the gods, to become godlike in our worship of eachother and, through those moments of transmutation, to know for an instant what the gods know.

  • Baseball has the largest library of law and love and custom and ritual, and therefore, in a nation that fundamentally believes it is a nation under law, well, baseball is America's most privileged version of the level field.

  • You can have whatever you want if you believe in yourself and keep your feet firmly planted in the ground.

  • I believe that whatever comes at a particular time is a blessing from God.

  • Besides that, I believe one thing: there is a Lord God! And this Lord God creates the peoples.

  • I believe forgiveness is possible for everybody, for everything, but I'm a Buddhist.

  • For I do not seek to understand in order to believe, but I believe in order to understand. For I believe this: unless I believe, I will not understand.

  • Nicotine is both a stimulant and a depressant, so that can make one feel quite imbalanced.

  • I believe nicotine plus caffeine equals protein.
