Why try to say it yourself when somebody else has already said it better

"Inside every golfer that ever struck a ball there is a child that goes 'weee!' But why is going 'weee!' such fun? Why is it so addictive? Why does the surfer always go back for one more wave? Why do so many people spend an annual fortune on skiing holidays when they could be relaxing somewhere hot? It comes down to the fact that humans have never quite got the hang of being human. We always look for something more, something beyond ourselves. We look for magic. We seek to savour, even in a small way, a taste of the miraculous. We want to fly away from base earth. We want to be more than ourselves"
