The oddest swimming quotes I have ever read!

"Breaststroke is an athletic event; butterfly is a political statement." ~ Senator Paul Tsongas

"If I were dropped out of a plane into the ocean and told the nearest land was a thousand miles away, I'd still swim. And I'd despise the one who gave up." ~ Abraham Maslow

"Chlorine is my perfume." ~ Author Unknown

"It's been told that swimming is a wimp sport, but I don't see it. We don't get timeouts, in the middle of a race we can't stop and catch our breath, we can't roll on our stomachs and lie there, and we can't ask for a substitution." ~ Author Unknown

"Seven days of no swimming makes one weak." ~ Author Unknown

Hey There!

So happy to see you continue this fun topic on your blog Tony!

On the USMS Discussion Group there is a terrific thread collecting favorites from masters swimmers.

Swimmers who love water/swim quotes, check it out!

At a loving glance:

"You will do foolish things, but do them with enthusiasm."

"The swimmer who says it can't be done is ALWAYS passed by the one who is doing it."
