Pocock Rowing quotes by Bernie Glassman
#1. Sometimes you come to a fall and sometimes you come to white water. Your rowing has to adapt to the situation. You can't do the same stroke coming down a small stream as you would coming down Niagara Falls. Even if you're only rowing down a stream, different things happen: maybe the wind changes, maybe the current, and suddenly everything's different. So gently is really important. Don't power yourself or blast through; rock with the way things are. #Quote by Bernie Glassman
Pocock Rowing quotes by Roz Savage
#2. I stopped rowing for a moment to glug down some water, but it was warm, tasted of plastic, and failed to refresh. I yearned for an ice-cold drink - preferably one with bubbles and alcohol in it. #Quote by Roz Savage
Pocock Rowing quotes by Alexander Masters
#3. At this time of day it should have been open and full of fifty fellow smackheads, crackheads, psychotics, epileptics, schizophrenics, self-harmers, beggars, buskers, car thieves, sherry pushers, ciderheads, just-released-that-morning convicts, ex-army, ex-married-men-with-young-children-who'd-discovered-their-wife-in-bed-with-two-members-of-the-university-rowing-team-at-the-same-time. #Quote by Alexander Masters
Pocock Rowing quotes by Cormac McCarthy
#4. The spotlight kept rowing back and forth across the face of the ridge. Methodically. Bright shuttle, dark loom. #Quote by Cormac McCarthy
Pocock Rowing quotes by Jim Dietz
#5. In rowing as in life, there are competitors and there are racers. The competitor works hard and rows to his limit. The racer does not think of limits, only the race. #Quote by Jim Dietz
Pocock Rowing quotes by Sean J Halford
#6. We get sombre about death. Think about Charon the ferryman rowing the souls across the Styx to the Isle of the Dead. Pretty grim stuff. Unless you think that, perhaps, at times, old Charon rows souls back to the land of the living too. Perhaps I have merely gone to rest awhile… #Quote by Sean J Halford
Pocock Rowing quotes by Brad Alan Lewis
#7. As I stood in the booth chatting to people, it occurred to me that besides good racing, the Crew Classic provided an ideal setting for the brotherhood of rowing. The brotherhood connects real rowing people. Teammates who haven't visited in years came together, and so do former opponents who once battled like mortal enemies. Suddenly they discovered they have much more in common. Long live the brotherhood of rowing. #Quote by Brad Alan Lewis
Pocock Rowing quotes by Roz Savage
#8. Ocean rowing is very much what you make it. Rowing technique is pretty irrelevant on the ocean. It's the psychology that's important. #Quote by Roz Savage
Pocock Rowing quotes by Michael Lewis
#9. An Olympic rowing career had left Porter Collins a bit inured to the pain of others, as he assumed they usually didn't know what pain was. No, #Quote by Michael Lewis
Pocock Rowing quotes by Seneca
#10. For those who follow nature everything is easy and straightforward, whereas for those who fight against her life is just like rowing against the stream. #Quote by Seneca
Pocock Rowing quotes by Brent Schlender
#11. Once, while talking to a group at a dinner party that included Larry Ellison, Amelio tried to put his company's problems in perspective for the other guests. "Apple is a boat," he said. "There's a hole in the boat, and it's taking on water. But there's also a treasure on board. And the problem is, everyone on board is rowing in different directions, so the boat is just standing still. My job is to get everyone rowing in the same direction." After Amelio walked away, Ellison turned to the person standing next to him and asked, "But what about the hole?" That was one story Steve never got tired of telling. #Quote by Brent Schlender
Pocock Rowing quotes by Stefan Kieszling
#12. We shook hands. For a moment our eyes met - which I found surprisingly destabilizing. Then we pulled back and there was a mement of what seemed like mutual appraisal. For me, it was like being at a regatta, sizing up the competition on the dock before climbing into the shells. Could I take him? ... He could inflict serious damage. I sensed that. But he would be unfamiliar with rowers - men used to toiling backwards, blindly, trained, most of all, to endure. #Quote by Stefan Kieszling
Pocock Rowing quotes by Jodi Ellen Malpas
#13. I fancy a bit of rowing. #Quote by Jodi Ellen Malpas
Pocock Rowing quotes by Lynda Mullaly Hunt
#14. There is a tray full of glass sundae dishes filled with brightly colored ice cream. Strawberry, pistachio, black raspberry. Pink, green, and purple. I like the colors next to each other and wonder what kind of impossible things I can draw about ice cream. Maybe melting rivers of it. And a man with a cone-shaped head sitting in a babana split dish rowing with a spoon. #Quote by Lynda Mullaly Hunt
Pocock Rowing quotes by Charles Wheelan
#15. When I applied to graduate school many years ago, I wrote an essay expressing my puzzlement at how a country that could put a man on the moon could still have people sleeping on the streets. Part of that problem is political will; we could take a lot of people off the streets tomorrow if we made it a national priority. But I have also come to realize that NASA had it easy. Rockets conform to the unchanging laws of physics. We know where the moon will be at a given time; we know precisely how fast a spacecraft will enter or exist the earth's orbit. If we get the equations right, the rocket will land where it is supposed to--always. Human beings are more complex than that. A recovering drug addict does not behave as predictably as a rocket in orbit. We don't have a formula for persuading a sixteen-year-old not to drop out of school. But we do have a powerful tool: We know that people seek to make themselves better off, however they may define that. Our best hope for improving the human condition is to understand why we act the way we do and then plan accordingly. Programs, organizations, and systems work better when they get the incentives right. It is like rowing downstream. #Quote by Charles Wheelan
Pocock Rowing quotes by Mary Oliver
#16. West Wind #2

You are young. So you know everything. You leap
into the boat and begin rowing. But listen to me.
Without fanfare, without embarrassment, without
any doubt, I talk directly to your soul. Listen to me.
Lift the oars from the water, let your arms rest, and
your heart, and heart's little intelligence, and listen to
me. There is life without love. It is not worth a bent
penny, or a scuffed shoe. It is not worth the body of a
dead dog nine days unburied. When you hear, a mile
away and still out of sight, the churn of the water
as it begins to swirl and roil, fretting around the
sharp rocks – when you hear that unmistakable
pounding – when you feel the mist on your mouth
and sense ahead the embattlement, the long falls
plunging and steaming – then row, row for your life
toward it. #Quote by Mary Oliver
Pocock Rowing quotes by Christopher Allsopp
#17. I think that's why I coach.. I used to get up early every morning with a clear goal in mind of how fast I was going to be. When I stopped rowing, there was a void in my daily routine. Now I go to bed at night and get up morning with a clear goal in mind of how fast you are going to be. #Quote by Christopher Allsopp
Pocock Rowing quotes by Andrew Marvell
#18. And all the way, to guide their chime, With falling oars they kept their time. #Quote by Andrew Marvell
Pocock Rowing quotes by Brad Alan Lewis
#19. One of the unique aspects of rowing is that novices strive to perfect the same motions as Olympic contenders. Few other sports can make this claim. In figure skating, for instance, the novice practices only simple moves. After years of training, the skater then proceeds to the jumps and spins that make up an elite skater's program. But the novice rower, from day one, strives to duplicate a motion that he'll still be doing on the day of the Olympic finals. #Quote by Brad Alan Lewis
Pocock Rowing quotes by T. S. Eliot
#20. I confess ... that I am not myself very much concerned with the question of influence, or with those publicists who have impressed their names upon the public by catching the morning tide and rowing very vast in the direction in which the current was flowing; but rather that there should always be a few writers preoccupied in penetrating to the core of the matter, in trying to arrive at the truth and to set it forth, without too much hope, without ambition to alter the immediate course of affairs, and without being downcast or defeated when nothing appears to ensue. #Quote by T. S. Eliot
Pocock Rowing quotes by Caravaggio
#21. I bury my head in the pillow, and dream of my true love…
I am rowing to you on the great, dark ocean. #Quote by Caravaggio
Pocock Rowing quotes by David Jeremiah
#22. Satan may win some present battles, but the outcome of the war has already been determined - and Satan knows it. When we know that truth as well, it gives us courage to persevere through the downturns. Like castaways who keep on rowing because the map shows an island ahead, we'll have the courage to press on. Perhaps this is the reason the devil tries to discourage people from reading this amazing book. The devil has turned thousands of people away from this portion of God's Word. He does not want anyone to #Quote by David Jeremiah
Pocock Rowing quotes by Brad Alan Lewis
#23. Rowing is an absurdly simple sport. I can easily guide a beginner throught the right technical motions. The difficulty arises when the beginner attempts to repeat those motions on a bumpy race course, at 40 strokes a minute, with his heart rate zooming, and an opponent charging up his stern. #Quote by Brad Alan Lewis
Pocock Rowing quotes by Michael Jordan
#24. If you can't stop thinking about it, don't stop working on it. #Quote by Michael Jordan
Pocock Rowing quotes by J.K. Rowling
#25. She seemed to see a flash of bright sunlight on dark green water, fragmented into brilliant shards by the splashing rise and fall of oars. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Pocock Rowing quotes by Emily Dickinson
#26. Wild Nights - Wild Nights!
Were I with thee
Wild Nights should be
Our luxury!

Futile - the winds -
To a heart in port -
Done with the compass -
Done with the chart!

Rowing in Eden -
Ah, the sea!
Might I but moor - Tonight -
In thee! #Quote by Emily Dickinson
Pocock Rowing quotes by Zadie Smith
#27. Not everyone wants this conventional little life you're rowing your boat toward. I like my river of fire. And when it's time for me to go I fully intend to roll off my one-person dinghy into the flames and be consumed. I'm not afraid. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Pocock Rowing quotes by Mary Oliver
#28. I went down not long ago
to the Mad River, under the willows
I knelt and drank from that crumpled flow, call it
what madness you will, there's a sickness
worse than the risk of death and that's
forgetting what we should never forget.
Tecumseh lived here.
The wounds of the past
are ignored, but hang on
like the litter that snags among the yellow branches,
newspapers and plastic bags, after the rains.

Where are the Shawnee now?
Do you know? Or would you have to
write to Washington, and even then,
whatever they said,
would you believe it? Sometimes

I would like to paint my body red and go into
the glittering snow
to die.

His name meant Shooting Star.
From Mad River country north to the border
he gathered the tribes
and armed them one more time. He vowed
to keep Ohio and it took him
over twenty years to fail.

After the bloody and final fighting, at Thames,
it was over, except
his body could not be found,
and you can do whatever you want with that, say

his people came in the black leaves of the night
and hauled him to a secret grave, or that
he turned into a little boy again, and leaped
into a birch canoe and went
rowing home down the rivers. Anyway
this much I'm sure of: if we meet him, we'll know it,
he will still be
so angry. #Quote by Mary Oliver
Pocock Rowing quotes by Theresa Breslin
#29. When I was young, I read everything I could lay my hands on, but the Scots in my storybooks spent their time fighting glorious battles, rowing across lochs, or escaping over moors of purple heather. Even those Scots were hard to find. For at school, we recited poetry according to the set texts the teachers taught us. #Quote by Theresa Breslin
Pocock Rowing quotes by J. G. A. Pocock
#30. The bearing of arms is the essential medium through which the individual asserts both his social power and his participation in politics as a responsible moral being ... #Quote by J. G. A. Pocock
Pocock Rowing quotes by Stephen Young
#31. It's great to see the World Rowing Championships returning to U.S. soil for the first time in 25 years. I am even more excited that it will be taking place in my home state of Florida. Regardless of where my rowing career takes me, I am sure to be in attendance in Sarasota in 2017. #Quote by Stephen Young
Pocock Rowing quotes by Jim Dietz
#32. Rowing is a sport for dreamers. As long as you put in the work, you can own the dream. #Quote by Jim Dietz
Pocock Rowing quotes by Harry S. Truman
#33. There are always a lot of people so afraid of rocking the boat that they stop rowing. We can never get ahead that way. #Quote by Harry S. Truman
Pocock Rowing quotes by Jeanine Cummins
#34. and it seemed to me that we was like seafarers, and the tober was the ocean. We was passing the landlubbers by. We gawped at each other, us from our ships, and them from their shores, but the gap between us was so big we couldn't cross it. It was high tide or low tide, or whatever tide would prevent us from dropping anchor and rowing out to them, to exchange gifts and brides, gods and diseases" Outside Boy pg.55 #Quote by Jeanine Cummins
Pocock Rowing quotes by Charles Dickens
#35. SIR BARNET and Lady Skettles, very good people, resided in a pretty villa at Fulham, on the banks of the Thames; which was one of the most desirable residences in the world when a rowing-match happened to be going past, but had its little inconveniences at other times, among which may be enumerated the occasional appearance of the river in the drawing-room, and the contemporaneous disappearance of the lawn and shrubbery. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Pocock Rowing quotes by Nancy Greene
#36. Rowing provided a place to go, a community where people cared about what I did and what I achieved. #Quote by Nancy Greene
Pocock Rowing quotes by Owen Feltham
#37. Virtue dwells at the head of a river, to which we cannot get but by rowing against the stream. #Quote by Owen Feltham
Pocock Rowing quotes by Jana Aston
#38. He nods, quiet for a moment. "I applied to Brown, Cornell and Harvard. I was accepted to all three. I ended up at Harvard because they had the best rowing program."

Damn. Of course he's a rower. I have a bit of a thing for rowers. Sophomore year I dated two of them. Not at the same time or anything. But still, it was a good year. #Quote by Jana Aston
Pocock Rowing quotes by Christopher Allsopp
#39. Don't blow your load on the first stroke, fellas. #Quote by Christopher Allsopp
Pocock Rowing quotes by Clare Balding
#40. Swimming and athletics are the big gigs at the Olympic games. Cycling and rowing are pretty big for Britain, but globally, the two big things are athletics and swimming. #Quote by Clare Balding
Pocock Rowing quotes by Aleister Crowley
#41. Also, asceticism is all right when it is the proper means of attaining some special end. It is when it produces eructations of spiritual pride, and satisfied vanity, that it is poisonous. The Greek word means an athlete; and the training of an athlete is not mortification of the body. Nor is there any rule which covers all circumstances. When men go "stale" a few days before the race, they are "taken off training," and fed with champagne. But that is part of the training. Observe, too, that all men go "stale" sooner or later; training is abnormal, and must be stopped as soon as its object is attained. Even so, it too often strains vital organs, especially the heart and lungs, so that few rowing "Blues" live to be 50. But worst of all is the effect on the temper!

When it is permanent, and mistaken for a "Virtue," it poisons the very soil of the soul. The vilest weeds spring up; cruelty, narrowmindedness, arrogance - everything mean and horrible flowers in those who "Mortify the flesh." Incidentally, such ideas spawn the "Black Brother." The complete lack of humour, the egomaniac conceit, self-satisfaction, absence of all sympathy for others, the craving to pass their miseries on to more sensible people by persecuting them: these traits are symptomatic. #Quote by Aleister Crowley
Pocock Rowing quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#42. There is no safe," Kaz snarled. "Not in the Barrel. Not anywhere." He threw his strength into rowing. No seal. No ship. Their money spent.
"What do we do now?" Wylan said quietly, his voice barely audible above the sound of the water and the other boats on the canal.
"Pick up a pair of oars and make yourself useful," said Kaz. "Or I'll put your pampered ass in the drink and let your father fish you out. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Pocock Rowing quotes by Brad Alan Lewis
#43. Unlike boxers-or any professional athlete for that matter-rowers have little motivation to do it longer than necessary. With a modest amount of self-realization, you'll know when you have acquired the nebulous gifts that rowing has to offer, whether it's courage or a strengthened soul or a powerful body. Once you have it, drop back ten yards and punt. Someone new will pick up the ball and run with it. #Quote by Brad Alan Lewis
Pocock Rowing quotes by Kristen Chandler
#44. Maybe the future is like rowing for shore. Your only choice is to try or give up. #Quote by Kristen Chandler
Pocock Rowing quotes by Mike Teti
#45. To hell with that. If a guy can pull a big erg, I can teach him how to row. #Quote by Mike Teti
Pocock Rowing quotes by Barry S. Strauss
#46. Rowing was not simple for me. I nodded whenever the instructor made a point, as if I understood, but I could as easily have assembled the space shuttle as have repeated the moves she was explaining. #Quote by Barry S. Strauss
Pocock Rowing quotes by Tessa Dare
#47. She gazed at the man across from her. Her lover. His powerful shoulders worked beneath his shirt as he pulled on the oars. The display of strength and agility, set to a steady rhythm…memories of their lovemaking assailed her with quiet force.
In some other place, under some other circumstance, they might have been a courting couple. Rowing across a placid lake, caressed by a glowing sunset. From a distance, this could have been the picture of romance.
But the reality was confusion, and resentment, and pain. Did she feel sorry for misleading him? Sophia considered. She was not sure she could. By his own admission, he would not have made love to her had she not. And she could not regret that exquisite pleasure; nor could she regret sharing it with him. She looked at the handsome, strong, charismatic, passionate, exhausted man across from her. Selfish and wicked though she might be, she could not feel sorry that he was now bound to her-that for good or ill, he had not left her behind.
Sophia was, however, unequivocally sorry for one thing.
"Gray," she said, "I'm so sorry I've hurt you."
His eyes flashed, and there was a slight hitch in his stroke. #Quote by Tessa Dare
Pocock Rowing quotes by Drew Ginn
#48. While power is important, efficiency is critical. Many have worked hard and gone slow. #Quote by Drew Ginn
Pocock Rowing quotes by Dan Pearce
#49. I enjoy a torture session on the rowing machine and I also enjoy my mom's homemade peach cobbler. I enjoy flopping like that dead fish with hips that can't lie in dance class, and I also enjoy ordering pizza with my kid, renting a movie, and downing popcorn while we share some special time together. I enjoy seeing how much I can lift at the gym and I also enjoy stuffing a fresh chewy chocolate chip cookie into my face when I'm having a hard day. #Quote by Dan Pearce
