Ripple Quotations

Remember there's no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.
Scott Adams

First impressions matter more in basketball than in any other sport, and they can be savored only in person. Players can't hide behind pads or helmets, so we can stare at them, evaluate every move they make: running, jumping, walking, even ogling the cheerleaders. We can see every ripple and tattoo. If they're lazy, we can tell.
Bill Simmons

Rob Reiner
