Compilation maven David Pickering (editor of The Cassell Soccer Companion) has assembled more than 2,500 quotations from the sports world in Cassell's Sports Quotations. Focused mainly on European and international sports boxing, soccer, tennis the book also covers baseball, basketball, and American football. Representing fanatical views as diverse as Robert Lynd's ""It may be that all games are silly. But then, so are humans"" and Bill Shankly's conviction that soccer is more than merely ""a matter of life and death,"" it includes choice words from all the major players, e.g., George Foreman on the two competing objects of his attention: ""I want to keep fighting because it is the only thing that keeps me out of the hamburger joints. If I don't fight, I'll eat this planet."" ( Mar.)
