    If Id lived prior to the 1980s, it would have been different, because I would have been playing to prove African Americans are equal.

If I can go out there and play for myself and not feel I have to stand for something other than what I want to do, thats good.

    What matters in the end in literature, what is always there, is the truly good. And- though played out forms can throw up miraculous sports like The Importance of Being Earnest or Decline and Fall- what is good is always what is new, in both form and content. What is good forgets whatever models it might have had, and is unexpected; we have to catch it on the wing.
    — V. S. Naipaul
