Quote by Ivern Ball
Ever notice that people never say It's only a game when they're winning?
This quote reflects the tendency of individuals to downplay the significance of games or minimize their importance when they are winning. It highlights how people often use the phrase "It's only a game" as a way to deflect criticism or diminish the emotions and efforts of those who may be losing or struggling. The quote suggests that people are more likely to dismiss the impact of a game when they are experiencing success, reinforcing the idea that our perspective on games can be influenced by our personal achievements and outcomes.
The persons on whom I have bestowed my dearest love lie deep in their graves; but, although the happiness and delight of my life lie buried there too, I have not made a coffin of my heart, and sealed it up for ever on my best affections. Deep affliction has only made them stronger; it ought, I think, for it should refine our nature.
