Randy Lerner quotes

  • The reality is we are 0-3. The reality is that we can still be a very good football team. We need to show that on Monday night.

  • I take football as an avenue to different opportunities. Football is not using me; I'm using football.

  • A child is a person who is going to carry on what you have started ... the fate of humanity is in his hands.

  • The anvil of justice is planted firm, and fate who makes the sword does the forging in advance.

  • So with truth - there is a certain moment when one can say, this is the truth and here I put a dot, a stop, and I go to another thing. A judge has to put an end to a deliberation. But for a historian, theres never an end to the past. It can go on and on and on.

  • Every historian loves the past or should do. If not, he has mistaken his vocation; but it is a short step from loving the past to regretting that it has ever changed. Conservatism is our greatest trade-risk; and we run psychoanalysts close in the belief that the only "normal" people are those who cause no trouble either to themselves or anybody else.

  • In the past, I used to counter any such notions by asking myself: 'Would you really want President Hattersley?' I now find that possibility rather cheers me up. With his chubby, Dickensian features and his knowledge of T.H. Green and other harmless leftish political classics, Hattersley might not be such a bad thing after all.

  • I can't tell you where a poem comes from, what it is, or what it is for: nor can any other man. The reason I can't tell you is that the purpose of a poem is to go past telling, to be recognised by burning.

  • If you don't have a vision for the future, then your future is threatened to be a repeat of the past.

  • I didn't think about anything past tomorrow because anything past tomorrow was just like cloud busting - it depended soley on the person looking at the clouds and it could rain any minute
