“Real athletes row. Everyone else just plays games.”
“Glory is in the team not the individual.” – Sean Sullivan
“I lived in fear of waking up to that phone call [wondering why I was not at the boathouse] instead of my alarm clock. When they find out I rowed in college, people always tell me how much they admire my discipline. Those are usually the same people who tell me how ‘relaxing’ and ‘peaceful’ rowing looks as they drive to work along the Potomac in the morning. Discipline had little or nothing to do with it; it was simply fear of that phone call.” — Matt Classen, Georgetown University Lightweights 1995
