Supreme Bowling excerpt for CricketWeb

Note: This is my draft, as submitted, as opposed to the one that appears in the book and on CricketWeb. The exigencies of space made the editors' version slightly less readable.

http://www.cricketweb.net/supreme-bow...

More than any other cricketer, and arguably more than any other athlete, Allan Donald led the South African sporting renaissance of the 1990s. In 26 Test victories, he managed no f... Read more of this blog post »

“Political centrism ≠ neutrality. Being a centrist doesn't make you unbiased; it biases you in favour of the centre.”
Rodney Ulyate

“You don't know how shallow you are, or how narcissistic, until you acquire a facial scar. On the plus side, it's so situated as to make me look tough and worldly. On the downside, I'm never kissing my dog again.”
Rodney Ulyate

“Would that cricketers had better lines, or at least that their most famous were not also their tritest or most banal. 'This thing can be done,' said Fred Spofforth in 1882. 'We'll get 'em in singles,' George Hirst did not say twenty years later. 'You guys are history,' growled Devon Malcolm in 1994. 'You've just dropped the World Cup,' Steve Waugh may have crowed in 1999. At least two of these could have been put into the mouth of Arnold Schwarzenegger.”
Rodney Ulyate, Masterly Batting: 100 Great Test Innings

“Was it not part of the secret black art of truly grand politics of revenge, of a farseeing, subterranean, slowly advancing, and premeditated revenge, that Israel must itself deny the real instrument of its revenge before all the world as a mortal enemy and nail it to the cross, so that 'all the world,' namely all the opponents of Israel, could unhesitatingly swallow just this bait? And could spiritual subtlety imagine any more dangerous bait than this? Anything to equal the enticing, intoxicating, overwhelming, and undermining power of that symbol of the 'holy cross,' that ghastly paradox of a 'God on the cross,' that mystery of an unimaginable ultimate cruelty and self-crucifixion of God for the salvation of man?”
Friedrich Nietzsche, On the Genealogy of Morals / Ecce Homo

“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven..”
John Milton, Paradise Lost

“I will not deny but that the best apology against false accusers is silence and sufferance, and honest deeds set against dishonest words.”
John Milton

“As is well known, the priests are the most evil enemies—but why? Because they are the most impotent. It is because of their impotence that in them hatred grows to monstrous and uncanny proportions, to the most spiritual and poisonous kind of hatred. The truly great haters in world history have always been priests; likewise the most ingenious haters: other kinds of spirit hardly come into consideration when compared with the spirit of priestly vengefulness.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, On the Genealogy of Morals / Ecce Homo

“John Milton almost single-handedly created the identity of the writer as political activist.”
Anna Beer, Milton: Poet, Pamphleteer and Patriot

John Brooke Hola Rodney,

Gracias,
