To have little is to possess.To have plenty is to be perplexed.

Lao tzu

Every increased possession loads us with new weariness.

John Ruskin

I love stuff as much as the next guy, but I've come to understand that, regardless of the cost of acquiring it, the price of having it is freedom.

Colleen Wainwright

Possession is eleven points in the law.

Colley Cibber

The wise man carries his possessions within him.

Adolfo Cambiaso

Desire makes everything blossom; possession makes everything wither and fade.

Marcel Proust

I have everything, yet have nothing; and although I possess nothing, still of nothing am I in want.


No man can lose what he never had.

Izaak Walton

An object in possession seldom retains the same charm that it had in pursuit.

Pliny the Younger

Before we set our hearts too much upon anything, let us examine how happy those are who already possess it.

Francois de La Rochefoucauld

The big difference in overtime was we scored first and controlled the boards. Throughout the second half we did a good job defensively allowing one shot. We were active on the glass on the offensive end and that allowed us additional possessions.

Aaron Rosenberg

All mankind... being all equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his life, health, liberty or possessions.

John Locke

Greatness is not found in possessions, power, position, or prestige. It is discovered in goodness, humility, service, and character.

William Arthur Ward

All my possessions for a moment of time.

Elizabeth I

We talked at halftime about a couple of things. First thing we fixed is that we weren't playing a physical game in the first half, and secondly we moved Matt Mikhail to midfield to get more possessions on the ball.

John Horton

They (Bartow) slowed our pace down in the first half. We slowed it down on our possessions, then we decided to pick up the pace.

Bob Bauman

The possessions of the rich are stolen property.

Pierre joseph Proudhon

We couldn't get it inside. We had 17 turnovers in the first half. That's 17 possessions where we didn't even get a shot.

Brian Ricci

He taught a lot of people music -- piano, drums, guitar. He taught a lot of people in the county how to play guitar. He was good with kids. His prized possessions were his guitars.

John Gadd

We played really good for three and one-half quarters. We were just one or two possessions away from finishing the deal, but we just couldn't get the rebound we needed or we couldn't handle the ball.

Gary Murphy

All of the possessions were big. It wasn't one possession that won or lost the game. Down the stretch we needed to make plays in order to win.

Shantia Grace

We executed well in stretches, but . . . we took a couple possessions off. It was finishing off the execution. Three times we had (Anthony) Morrow open in the corner. They didn't see him. I guess he blended in with the crowd.

Paul Hewitt

It was probably a difference of about five possessions. We've got to be better defensively to stop runs like that.

Joe Kinch

Z did a good job and he had five to ten possessions at the point there, and he did OK.

Barret Peery

We like to think of ourselves as a pretty good defensive team. But there was a premium put on a every possession in a game like this and we had too many ineffective possessions when each one means so much.

Vince Lombardo

The first half was a very fast-paced game. There were a lot of possessions and we came out of the blocks shooting really well, but it's hard to get out early like that and maintain that kind of energy.

Ted Woodward

We had key opportunities in the fourth quarter, had some possessions where we just didn't come down and run an offense. A chance to cut it to two or three points and a chance to cut it to one or tie the ball game, and we didn't get a shot off because we had a goofy turnover.

Chris Pack

. . . a great deal of wonderful clutter -- all of it carefully ordered and intimately meaningful to the homemaker. She cares little about the intrinsic value of any of her possessions as long as it's something she loves.

Billy Baldwin

These two teams match up well. I expected this type of game all the way through. We were just a couple of possessions away. We just couldn't get that one basket. They hit their free throws at the end, which did it.

Chad Allan

We had some really bad offensive possessions in the second half. We took some quick shots and some bad shots. We just didn't make enough baskets.

Brent Brede

We got the ball into Charlie six possessions in a row, and finally we started to click.

Marv Morris

The game could have gone either way. We didn't execute the first three possessions (of the fourth quarter) the way we should, all of a sudden were down by six and the game goes by the wayside.

John Tiziani

Those possessions really were turning points and you never forget that. We feel we didn't play our best game two years ago, and we want to make sure that doesn't happen again.

Stephanie Gamble

There were possessions were it seemed like we were defending 90 seconds in a row.

Porter Moser

People are traumatized. It's a terrible sight. People have been burnt out, all their possessions burnt, their families killed. It's devastation.

David Short

I was most impressed with our defense. We made every one of their possessions hard, and we really didn't give up too many easy baskets. We are playing more aggressive defense than we have done all year.

Gene Brisbane

The only downside was that we started the second half with the same crap we've been doing. We had turnovers on our first four possessions, and all a sudden, our lead goes from 18 to 11.

Tim Parmeter

Then we failed to execute in the last two minutes. We had a lot of poorly executed possessions.

John Martino

There were some brutal possessions on our part in the last four minutes.

Mark Trakh

The first ten possessions of the second half are important, and I was pleased that we came out and showed a lot of effort (to open up the second half).

Jay Murray

It's that one scoring drought we always seem to have. It's not one or two possessions. It's five or six. And that's a pretty good drought.

Josh Doyle

We just couldn't put together any stops. They scored on all their crucial possessions and the one they don't, we get an opportunity for the loose ball and we don't come up with it.

Lawrence Frank

It was just a great team effort. We really valued our possessions. When we had the opening, we attacked. And we did well in our half-court sets.

Kent Kolsrud

We mix up our defense. We are long enough to really extend out on people. We took away a lot of open looks from them. We also limited their possessions with our style of play.

Ronnie Bottoms

Make wisdom your provision for the journey from youth to old age, for it is a more certain support than all other possessions.

Adolfo Cambiaso

That whole last minute was just surreal. We finally did everything that we needed to do. It just took us until the last two possessions to get to that point.

Tracy Roller

We're talking about a lady having all her earthly possessions stripped from her house. She's destitute, put out on the street, and she's smiling.

Bart Tucker

We had turnovers on five of six possessions against Old Mill. We've had trouble getting over that loss and we're trying to re-establish ourselves.

Darryl Adams

Fortunately when they got within six, we were able to make some free throws and limit them to one shot on possessions.

Steve Hodson

We have to make it a defensive game every time we turn around, that's the Big East. You've got to take advantage of your possessions.

Tom Crean

We look at creating two possessions to the other team's one or trading a 3 for their 2. It's an advantage for kids who are just set shooters. I haven't found too many kids who can make a head fake, dribble in and pull up for a jumper.

Sean Donovan

We were doing a nice job of keeping the ball out of the post in the first half, but they really came out and went inside three, four, five possessions and kind of turned the game around.

Andy Howard

The three games we've played this season, turnovers have been our nemesis. We're losing possessions and giving that team an extra possession.

Craig Whelihan

And when statesman or others worry [the scientist] too much, then he should leave with his possessions.

Tycho Brahe

We squandered a few possessions when they made that run. A five-point lead in a game like this is huge. If we would have been in their situation, we would have been able to finish them off the same way. When you get behind the 8-ball like that, it's hard to climb out of it.

Mark Rydbom

We did not honor certain critical possessions down the stretch like we should have, and it proved detrimental.

Hali Robinson

We missed a couple of quality shots. It shouldn't have come down to the last couple of possessions if we are playing Aurora University basketball along the whole way.

James Lancaster

With 17 turnovers, there are 17 possessions you don't have to even take a shot, let alone get a good one.

Brian Ricci

The key for us was scoring on our first three possessions in overtime. We were ale to gain the momentum and tempo of the game.

Randy Sherman

It is extraordinary how the house and the simplest possessions of someone who has been left become so quickly sordid. Even the stain on the coffee cup seems not coffee but the physical manifestation of one's inner stain, the fatal blot that from the beginning had marked one for ultimate aloneness.

Jane Fonda

It?s a big win because we knew we had to win with defense and good possessions. We set the game plan and the kids took it and went with it.

Chris Mcguirk

[However, noting that the women thus accused of witchcraft] belonged to the same ethnic and national groups that denounced them and that then laid claim to their land and possessions, ... the Inquisition was carried out not against women but against Jews.

Phyllis Chesler

The most important thing now ... is to protect lives, protect the lives of our children, of our grandparents, ... Possessions can be replaced.

Vicente Fox

People who get through life dependent on other people's possessions are always the first to lecture you on how little possessions count.

Ben Elton

We had just about everything people who had lost their home and personal possessions would need. And it all came from the people in Payson; they are the real heroes in all this, not us.

Butch Klein

This man has been humiliated beyond belief by his own hand. He is estranged from those he loves most and cares most about. All his worldly possessions are gone. He will carry a crushing tax debt until the day he dies. He will go to jail until he's 70 years old.

Lee Blalack

They can really score and because they can really score, you've got to maximize your own possessions.

Brent Brede

We figured we would turn the ball over no matter what. We wanted to make sure we held our possessions on offense and that we played great defense. Our defense keeps us in every single game.

Russ Crist

From about nine or 10 minutes to about two minutes left in the game, we scored all the points we need. We just don't get any stops. We don't get any stops because of the offensive glass. It's all about the offensive glass. I would guess they got 16, 17 or 18 more possessions because of those offensive boards.

Gene Iba

After my mother died in 1994, my brother and I were faced with the task of deciding what to do with her possessions, and after careful consideration, we sold some of them in 1996. In the intervening years, and the death of my brother, I found myself again with more houses and belongings than I could possibly use or enjoy.

Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg

That was really the game. We were four up and hadn't gotten anything the last two possessions. Those rebounds were huge.

Rick Scruggs

I thought we played well enough to win. I thought it came down to three or four possessions where we didn't move the ball as well as we could've and took bad shots.

Chris O'connor

We had three or four possessions up two and we didn't score. That's the game. We couldn't make lay-ups, we didn't execute, we took bad shots.

Scott Trost

I know we had it down to three [points] for about three or four possessions late. We just rushed things and turned over the basketball.

Steve Leslie

I made two crucial mistakes on the last two possessions, and I'm going to take it like a man. Those plays were my fault. Kaman was doing a great job, I should have just left Tinsley with Kaman.

Corey Maggette

They left behind clothes and possessions. But their visas are valid until April 26 and, until that time, they are free to enjoy the country.

Christine Nixon

That lead disappeared in a hurry, didn't it? We got a couple of key possessions, and managed to get the lead back pretty quickly.

Bob Hofman

I don't think we lost, we just kind of ran out of time tonight. A couple more possessions and I think we could have had a chance. We were battling until the end of the game.

Phil Rasmussen

This one really hurts. We played as hard as we could and we gave it all we could. There were just some key possessions and some calls and things that didn't go our way. Guys stepped in and did what they could do. We fought the game all the way down to maybe the last minute-and-a-half and things just got out of hand.

Gerald Wallace

[Washburn] had twice as many possessions as we did. I was pleased with the way we competed, but we gave up too many possessions.

John Sloop

He greatly valued his possessions, chiefly because they were his, and derived genuine pleasure from contemplating a painting, a statuette, a rare lace curtain -- no matter what -- after he had bought it and placed it among his household gods.

Kate Chopin

We've got a huge population of people that have been evacuated with very little by way of possessions and we have to have a way to make sure these people can function. If there are those who are out there to cheat the system, that is going to be very disappointing. But the main goal is to get the aid out.

Natalie Rule

We're doing really well. We're keeping our possessions and having patience before taking a shot.

Ally Stroup

The key was we took our time offensively. We hit some open people and we held them to one-shot possessions.

Gary Brunner

When a game comes down to the final possession, then it's on me. I feel like we let the community down. This game came down to one or two possessions that we didn't execute.

Travis Hannah

We just couldn't put together any stop. They scored on all their crucial possessions.

Lawrence Frank

We played zone maybe a few possessions all year. Everything that we've done has been almost all man.

Mark Senftner

They outshot us, but we did well taking away their opportunities. Their finishing was off and ours was on. Both teams had a good amount of possessions, though they had the advantage. The difference was, when we got forward, we made it count.

Paul Cameron

A couple of [different] possessions each game or we'd be sitting atop the Big East. That's the crazy way to look at it.

Melvin Buckley

There are only two kinds of freedom in the world; the freedom of the rich and powerful, and the freedom of the artist and the monk who renounces possessions.

Anais Nin

That was one of the worst (possessions) I've ever been around. We had a chance to get to 14 points.

Mike Sanford

You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.

Kahlil Gibran

She's a gutsy kid, a good player for us. We had three or four possessions where we were going to her on every possession, and she hit two or three in a row there. That's exactly what we wanted.

Jeff Knoy

We got the ball into Charlie six possessions in a row, and finally we started to click. He started out a little clumsy, but near the end we were running plays through him about as well as we can. We had a tentativeness, and then suddenly it went away.

Marv Morris

It's quite possible you have more than $30,000 of personal possessions.

Jayna Neagle

(Carlisle) limited our possessions tonight and that's to their credit. I thought it was a hard fought. They came prepared. I thought we made adjustments and put it away.

Kirk Smallwood

They had gone nine possessions in row with one point. Then (Lewis) comes in and makes those shots.

Brian Mcdermott

It was a game of spurts and, fortunately, we had more. A couple of times, we thought we were one or two possessions from taking command, but Antioch came back.

Scott Bogumil

We knew coming in that in order for us to win this game, we would have to get rebounds, and to hold the ball on offense. The less possessions they had, the better off we were.

Alfred Artis

That's 11 possessions positive for them. In a tough grind-it-out game, you can't do that.

Kirk Speraw

If I'm watching television and the cable goes out, I tell myself, 'OK, I'll read a book. Family matters, not possessions.'

Walter Reed

Why not? He's a really good player. And they'd run the play their last three possessions.

Milan Brown

We knew it would be a game of few possessions. To defend and only give up 28 points is a great compliment to our kids.

Pat Lewis

The No. 1 thing circulating in my head regarding Katrina's impact on the community, is how they will impact our city and how their culture will affect ours, ... We gave them a lot, but they came with a lot, not in possessions, but in their hearts, and their souls and their culture. I want people to see our new neighbors as new assets to our community. This will be great for our city.

Beverly Williams

We had a few very good possessions to start overtime. But it started with Lucas (Weaver) being a magician again. That's his game, chaos.

Dave Doemel

I thought the last 3 or 4 minutes there in the first half is when things kind of got away. We had four or five consecutive possessions where we didn't execute well.

Robert Mccullum

Occupiers of 'bad' buildings are exposed to far worse dangers on the streets than in the buildings, whether it be from the elements or from criminals who may prey on them and their possessions.

Du Plessis

We couldn't get over the hump. We made a good effort to get within eight (points). But then the next three possessions, we turned the basketball over.

John Ontjes

We didn't waste a whole lot of possessions. Against Kent you can't waste possessions because they're so good.

Dan Dakich

Clyde deserves a lot of credit. They stepped up and contested a lot of shots in key possessions in the second half.

Justin Morett

We had a lot of crucial turnovers in overtime. You can't turn the ball over on the first two possessions of a four-minute period and expect to win.

Tim Ehresman

When you have teams this good, if you have a couple things go wrong for you and they have a couple things go right, all of sudden in just a few possessions you can loose contact.

Clay Fitch

We just got sloppy I thought, myself included. We were technically sloppy all over the field. Possessions where we had a chance to go forward we gave to them and lost out on opportunities.

Chris Albright

We weren't really getting good possessions. It's tough. I had to watch most of the second half on the bench. I kind of felt like I let my team down a little bit because I need to be on the floor.

Tavio Hobson

We definitely want to try and get him to touch the basketball in big possessions.

Dave Madeira

They absolutely crushed us on the boards. They had a ton of second chance points and that's what I look at. You can't go into Morgan and give them 12 or 16 extra possessions.

Todd Salva

There's been a half-dozen possessions and we can be sitting here 14-1. But when we've been in close games we do not make good decisions. Game in and game out, when we handle the basketball and if we can keep our turnovers somewhere between 15 or 16 instead of 22 or 23, we can play with anybody.

Dave Butcher

I thought our kids played hard and it was a hard-fought game. But there were about three or four possessions that really swung the momentum.

Casey Dacus

We just committed big turnovers, when we were in an offensive flow. You really want to take those possessions and knock down some shots.

Bill Vincent

We tried to limit their possessions. We're not going to score a lot of points, and our philosophy is that if we have the ball, the other team can't score.

Larry Bowman

They missed their two possessions on some questionable shots. We had good looks at it and didn't get it.

Bailey Harris

There's three possessions where we didn't get a shot.

Pat Garrity

In poverty, people are possessions. In the middle class, possessions means things.

Jody Williams

We didn't handle it very well and we didn't get good possessions out of it. We threw the ball away.

Grant Smith

All my possessions for a moment of time. .

Elizabeth I Of England

We just had some poor possessions offensively down the stretch. The last four, five possessions, we didn't have to make a big play, we just had to make normal plays, and we didn't come up with it.

Eddie Jordan
