„Little by little it dawned upon me that this law was not making people drink any less, but it was making hypocrites and law breakers of a great number of people.“

—  Eleanor Roosevelt, My Day

My Day (1935–1962)
Kontekst: Little by little it dawned upon me that this law was not making people drink any less, but it was making hypocrites and law breakers of a great number of people. It seemed to me best to go back to the old situation in which, if a man or woman drank to excess, they were injuring themselves and their immediate family and friends and the act was a violation against their own sense of morality and no violation against the law of the land. (14 July 1939)

Tony Esposito Fotografia

„I had a great time, and I always took care of my body. That's the thing some players don't. For a goalie, there's no reason he can't play until he's 40 if he takes care of himself. The reflexes are still there.“
