I think a lot of moral debates are not over what is the basis of justice, but who gets a ticket to play in the game.
Look, I'm very much in favor of tax cuts, but not with borrowed money.

And my view is I don't think we can play subtle policy here.
I'm simply the mom who makes the lunch, drives to school, finds where the toys are, washes the clothes, and I'm here to play. And that's all I should be.
It is very lonely sometimes, trying to play God.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

I do genuinely believe that young people who play sport at a competitive level, sensibly controlled, sensibly organised, that has to be a good thing. It will teach them to win, it will teach them to lose with dignity and magnanimity - all the things you want. It's a pretty good metaphor for life.
I play into the perception of me, but it's not really me.
A joke is not a thing but a process, a trick you play on the listener's mind. You start him off toward a plausible goal, and then by a sudden twist you land him nowhere at all or just where he didn't expect to go.

And the biggest, coldest power play of all in Obamacare came at the expense of the elderly.
Remember these two things: play hard and have fun.
I'd love to romance Aishwarya Rai. But I'm 58 now. So I have to play her father.
I can't play bridge. I don't play tennis. All those things that people learn, and I admire, there hasn't seemed time for. But what there is time for is looking out the window.
A lot of people said to me, 'Enough with the guest vocalists for a while. We want to hear the Mexican play the guitar!'

As a young man, even if I was going to see a play or a film by myself, I didn't feel like I was alone. There was something that was unfolding up there that brought me into it. And I recognised that. For those two hours, it made me feel like I belonged to something really good.
Being on a book tour is like being on the seesaw when you're a little kid.

I simply do not distinguish between work and play.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
