P. G. Wodehouse, writer

In the split second from the time the ball leaves the pitcher's hand until it reaches the plate you have to think about your stride, your hip action, your wrist action, determine how much, if any the ball is going to break and then decide whether to swing at it.

I will say a lot of dancers do such beautiful things for their body and then they smoke a cigarette.
