Training is such a vital part of preparation for a game,
by Graeme Le Saux

Training is such a vital part of preparation for a game,

You can get away with not doing it for a while,
as long as you have reached a certain standard of fitness.
- Graeme Le Saux

- Graeme Le Saux

Digital has obviously changed things a lot,
but not all for the better as far as I'm concerned.
Of course it's much more convenient and you're getting instant results,
but to me it just lacks the finesse of a roll of film
and it has a slightly superimposed feel.
- Graeme Le Saux

of a traditional English scene.
- Graeme Le Saux

I was pleased that two very disparate photographs,
two images that each worked in their own way had appealed
enough to other people for them to buy them.
I was also relieved they weren't the last ones purchased,
and that they sold for a pound more than the frame was worth.
- Graeme Le Saux

From my point of view what I have to do now is appreciate
and enjoy what football gave me,
but now do something else with the same energy and
enthusiasm I gave to football without expecting the same results.
- Graeme Le Saux

The problem for me is that I've never actually studied photography,

actually know the technical side.

From the way most people live,
one would never guess that humans are beings of free will.
Repetition can be a choice, but often it isn't.
The athlete or pianist who practices the same routine
day after day, year after year, has their eye on a goal.
The unending repetition is a conscious choice
in the pursuit of a life dream.
But what about the sameness of most lives?
Observe the morning commute, the after-work drink,
the Sunday football game or religious service -
how many of those people are consciously following their dream,
training their mind, body, and spirit through that daily repetition?
And how many are mindlessly slogging through each day
out of habit and boredom?
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

A lifetime of training for just ten seconds.

Bodybuilding is much like any other sport.
To be successful, you must dedicate yourself 100% to your training,
diet and mental approach.
- Arnold Schwarzenegger

During his training, a baseball player strives
to make each swing better than the last.
The repetition of a faulty swing would be worse than useless.
It would ingrain bad habits.
The same is true of emotional responses.
If we allow ourselves to continue to have the same angry responses,
we just entrench our anger habit.
But if we strive - through consciousness, visualization, and coaching -
to moderate our anger response,
over time, we can train ourselves to respond
to events as we choose - without anger.
You can't magically be free from anger tomorrow,
but you can put yourself on your own training program
that will reduce the frequency and intensity
of your anger response day by day, year by year.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

We are strange beings, we seem
to go free, but we go in chains -
chains of training, custom, convention,
association, environment -
in a word, Circumstance -
and against these bonds
the strongest of us struggle in vain.
- Mark Twain

When a man goes through six years training to be a
doctor he will never be the same.

to infiltrate into the peacetime Marine Corp.
