Recreation Quotations

If you watch a game, it's fun. If you play it, it's recreation. If you work at it, it's golf.
Bob Hope

It is true that the Puritans banned all recreation on Sundays and all games of chance, gambling, bear baiting, horse racing, and bowling in or around taverns at all times. They did so, not because they were opposed to fun, but because they judged these activities to be inherently harmful or immoral.
Leland Ryken

The bow cannot always stand bent, nor can human frailty subsist without some lawful recreation.
Miguel de Cervantes

Minor sports in the community is fun and recreation for everyone, not just the elite. I think back to my days in minor hockey and those are my fondest memories, having fun.
Bobby Orr

Leave all the afternoon for exercise and recreation, which are as necessary as reading. I will rather say more necessary because health is worth more than learning.
