Bull Durham- Crash Davis

Well, I believe in the soul, the**** the ****, the small of a woman's back, the hanging curve ball, high fiber, good scotch, that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrated crap. I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days.

"Lord make me an instrument of Your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light,
and where there is sadness, joy.

Oh Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love;

for it is giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life."

– St. Francis of Assisi
