“The stroke of the whip maketh marks in the flesh; but the stroke of the tongue breaketh bones.”
“Man's tongue is soft, and bone doth lack; yet a stroke therewith may break a man's back.”
“Stroke follow strokes, the sparkling ingot shines,/ Flows the red slag, the lengthening bar refines;/ Cold waves, immersed, the glowing mass congeal,/ And turn to adamant the hissing Steel.”
“I really don't look at what the person has written. I concentrate on the stroke marks.”

“He had not an ounce of superfluous flesh on his bones, and leanness goes a great way towards gentility.”
“He got off the mark with such an emphatic stroke and it just went on and on from there. I'm quite happy to sit under the cloud of Andrew Symonds and watch him go the way I know he can go.”
