Shouldn't those guys be suiting up?

So, we are playing the Devils.  Wonderful.  Here are some of my favorite quotes, with my own annotations.

Off to eat some Deviled eggs.

 

We are each our own devil,

and we make this world our hell” 
Oscar Wilde 

(Translation:  Fly-boys, let's

make Philly feel like hell for our guests on Sunday)


“If the devil does not exist, and man has

therefore created him, he has created

him in his own image and likeness” 
Fyodor Dostoyevsky 

(Translation:  The Devils do exist, but they

barely made it into the playoffs.  So they barely

exist.)


“I often laugh at Satan, and there is nothing

that makes him so angry as when I attack

him to his face, and tell him that

through God I am more than a match for him” 
Martin Luther 

(Translation:  Giroux, honey, laugh in their faces)


“Somehow our devils are never

quite what we expect when

we meet them face to face.” 
Nelson DeMille 

(Translation:  Or in face to face-offs)


“Talk of the devil, and his horns appear” 
Samuel Taylor Coleridge

(Translation:  Let's hope the Devils have sex the

night before their games.)


“Devils can be driven out of the

heart by the touch of a hand on a hand,

or a mouth on a mouth” 
Tennessee Williams

(Translation:  Cross-checking boys! Go for it!)


“It is wonderful how much time good

people spend fighting the devil.

If they would only expend the same

amount of energy loving their fellow men,

the devil would die in his own tracks of ennui.” 
Helen Keller

(Translation:  Helen Keller was not a hockey fan)


“Demons do not exist any

more than gods do, being only the

products of the psychic activity of man” 
Sigmund Freud

(Translation:  Tell that to the Panthers)


“Where God has his church the

Devil will have his chapel” 
Spanish Proverb

(Translation:  Keep surveillance in their locker room)

 

“Renounce the devil and all his works,

the vain pomp and glory of the world.” 
Book of Common Prayer Quotes

(Translation:  Hey, does Crosby play for the Devils?)
