“Federer and Nadal are both incredible. Roger’s shot-making ability, athleticism, and vision are amazing. Djokovic, in the past year, has put himself on a level that is very comparable. Nadal has a lot of game as well; I’m not taking away anything from his game, but his mentality is so impressive. I really feel like Nadal is right there as the toughest athlete in any sport. He is mentally so strong. He digs so deep. I respect Nadal as much as any athlete in any sport for his mentality.”—Steve Nash, NBA Star (via ladyvenoms)
“When I was a young man, I had liberty, but I did not see it. I had time, but I did not know it. And I had love, but I did not feel it. Many decades would pass before I understood the meaning of all three. And now, the twilight of my life, this understanding has passed into contentment.
Love, liberty, and time: once so disposable, are the fuels that drive me forward. And love, most especially, mio caro. For you, our children, our brothers and sisters. And for the vast and wonderful world that gave us life, and keeps us guessing. Endless affection, mio Sofia.
