A confession

"And at [its] ... best, [it] ... was (is) almost heartbreakingly beautiful. That accounts for the disturbance we can feel when it goes off, as if ... the order of the world had been ever-so-slightly upset. But it’s heartbreaking to watch, too, because we intuit the fragility of perfection, its evanescence."

“What matters most ... [is] the victory, but what really gives you a deep personal satisfaction is to feel that you’ve become a better ... [person] because that’s the real product of the everyday work...”

The first quote above is about someone of whom I am a fan.

The second quote above is from someone who I admire.

A confession. Both are tennis players.

Ooh, I'd love to know which player said these :) I love them, esp. the first one!

Jane - I didn't now this! It's not too late yet! ;-)

Jude - its about Federer and by Nadal... Federer is such an artist (actually the quote by Michael Kimmelman the NY Time's art critic!), and Rafa is such a nice kid...

Very interesting... I love the sentiment of the second one... reaching a higher state by working hard at one's commitment each day.

I scrolled down your blog and it looks great! It's going to be so fun reading it!

Looking forward to more.

Bombay Beauty said...

Mary many thanks for the visit!

Nicole - I loved the first quote too - it was so right - beauty is fragile, and that is part of its beauty...
