  • Cricket's all right in spite of the newspapers, but the trouble is that three quarters of us don't know how to use our own gifts.
    • The Son of Grief (1936)
  • A game of cricket is at work from the first ball to the last in shaping an outline or design for itself. Sometimes the design degenerates into dullness and incompetence, but design there always is, and there is an interest even in the tracing of the course and impulse of its failures.
    • To the Wicket (1946)


  • He was certainly one of that company who tried to raise descriptions of matches from mere reporting to literature.
