“A green Europe will be a cycling Europe.”
– Frans Timmermans, The Cycling Summit, 2022

“It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and can coast down them … Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motorcar only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.”
– Ernest Hemingway, Selected Articles, 1967

“It’s a great art, is rowing. It’s the finest art there is. It’s a symphony of motion. And when you’re rowing well, why it’s nearing perfection. – And when you reach perfection, you’re touching the Divine. It touches the you of yous, which is your soul.”
– George Pocock, in: Rowing: Symphony of Motion, Jerry Murphy, Phoenix Film, 1974

“Olympism is a philosophy of life, exalting and combining in a balanced whole the qualities of body, will and mind. Blending sport with culture and education, Olympism seeks to create a way of life based on the joy of effort, the educational value of good example, social responsibility and respect for universal fundamental ethical principles.”
– IOC, Olympic Charter, 2020

“One need never leave the confines of New York to get all the greenery one wishes—I can’t even enjoy a blade of grass unless I know there’s a subway handy, or a record store or some other sign that people do not totally regret life.”
– Frank O’Hara, Meditations in an Emergency, 1957

“Yet the gross national product does not allow for the health of our children, the quality of their education or the joy of their play. It does not include the beauty of our poetry or the strength of our marriages, the intelligence of our public debate or the integrity of our public officials. It measures neither our wit nor our courage, neither our wisdom nor our learning, neither our compassion nor our devotion to our country, it measures everything in short, except that which makes life worthwhile.”
– Robert F. Kennedy, University of Kansas, 1968
