Proverbs of Squash : 20 lob shots dying, by david jarvis 2022.

A little wine is fine, but too much

will lead the fools astray today.

The terror of the elite athlete is like the roaring of a

crowd;

whoever provokes the mob risks their own

life.

It is honourable for an athlete to respect the

referee,

but fools argue unneccessarily about lets.

The lazy athlete does not train when cold,

so they never become warmed up for the match.

The thoughts of an athlete’s heart are like deep

divers,

and the discerning coach draws them out.

Many team mates proclaim their loyalty,

but who can find a faithful training partner?

The righteous athlete walks through skills at first,

happy about slow and incremental gains.

When the champion stands on the podium,

they feel the glow of success yet plan for improvement.

Who can say : “I have trained my weaknesses;

I improve each day”?

Dishonest sponsors and dissembling administrators

both are detestable to quality coaches and athletes.

Even a junior is known by their actions,

whether their behaviour is pure and right.

Hear the score and see the ball

Squash is made of both of those.

Sleep and recover or you will become overtrained.

Open yourself to optimality, and you will taper appropriately.

“That’s a double, that’s a double!” says some opponents;

They seek to influence the officials in desperation.

There is graphite, also much polymer,

but the lips of knowledge are even more

precious.

Take an athlete’s equipment if they cheat

for gains;

Seize their winnings and make them foreign to our sport.

Victories gained by cheating taste like ashes and gravel.

By consultation, training schedules will succeed,

and by skillful direction wage your campaign.

The imprudent reveal confidences about their team mates;

Do not associate with players who love to gossip.

Whoever curses their coach or captain,

their abilities will decline in times of hardship.

Inheriting a squash centre when needy

will not be a blessing in the end.

Do not say: “I will win!”

Hope that you will play well, and that will save you.

Dishonest gains are detestable to Squash,

And deceptive shots are true to the player, not the opponent.

An athlete’s footsteps are directed by Pathways;

How can a junior understand their own way?

It is a snare for an athlete to cry out rashly,

“Stroke!”

And realise the referee makes the decision otherwise.

A wise coach sifts out the wicked

And drives the evil out of them.

The cardiovascular system is the heart beating of an athlete,

It powers everything they train for.

Loyal love and faithfulness safeguard the captain;

by loyal love they sustain their leadership.

The glory of juniors is their speed, strength and suppleness,

And the splendor of veterans is their shot selection and skills.

Bloody wounds need first aid,

and losses cleanses one’s innermost being.

Proverbs of Squash : 18th Year, by david jarvis 2022.

Whoever solo trains pursues their

own valuable outcomes privately.

They reject the mediocrity of endless training games.

A stupid athlete takes no pleasure in

learning from others;

They would rather ignore solid advice than

open their heart.

When a cheater comes near, contempt

also approaches.

The words of a wise athlete are deep

waters.

The water fountain is fresh and filtered

with decency.

It is not good to show leniency to the

evil cheaters

Or to deprive the righteous of their

justice.

The speech of the angry violent athlete leads to

quarrels,

and their mouth spurs opponents to resolve.

The mouth of the fool is their ruin,

and their lips will bind their own outcomes to poverty.

The words of a slanderer seem a sweet

morsel;

They are easy to swallow, but bitterness ensues.

Whoever trains lazily in their own squad

is a team mate spreading poor performance.

Ones name needs to be above reproach.

A clear conscious and righteous activity is protective.

The wealth of the rich is their healthy mind and body;

Their psychology forms a protective boundary to sickness.

Before a surprise loss an athlete’s heart is lofty,

and before glory there is humility.

When anyone over anticipates the opponents shot

they will go the wrong way.

An athlete’s spirit can sustain them through

illness,

But depression is the heaviest burden.

An understanding heart acquires knowledge,

and the ears of the wise seek and listen to discover improvement.

An athlete’s gifts open the way forward;

But to become consistent optimal training is required.

The first point opens the competition and feels right,

but the last point wins the match.

Spinning the racket decides who is serving

and referees decide all decisions thereafter.

An offended athlete is more unyielding

than the walls of the squash court.

And some disputes hinder high performance.

From the fruitage of an athlete’s training

their neuromusclar system will be refined.

They will be satisfied with incremental improvements.

Loss and Victory are in the power of psychology;

Those who align their spirit and psychology will grow

majestically.

The one who finds a good soul mate has found

someone good,

and they receive everlasting love.

The poor athlete implores with sincerity,

but the rich athlete answers harshly.

There are companions ready to sap the athletes

spirit,

but there are friends who stick closer

than siblings.

Proverbs of Squash : 16 court sprints, by david jarvis 2022.

An athlete prepares their psychology,

but the outcome of competition is beyond their control.

All of an athletes ways seem right to them,

But coaches examine more thoroughly.

Commit to conscious training,

and your plans will succeed.

An athlete makes everything work for their purpose,

even negativity is overcome with diligent optimism.

Everyone proud and boastful is detestable to Sport.

Be assured they will have a fall.

By lifting higher and balancing, ones errors are minimised,

and by fearing pain one avoids injury.

When associates are pleased with an athletes ways,

they cause even the athletes’ opponents to be peaceful.

Better is a little quality training,

than a lot of work without purpose.

An athlete may plot out their annual schedule,

but it should be adaptable to the unforeseen.

Inspired decisions should be on the lips of the officials;

they must always judge by the rules.

Honestly, power to weight ratio has vital importance,

Obesity is not conducive to high performance.

Missing training is detestable to coaches,

For the high performer is established with consistency.

Righteous conversation is a pleasure amongst teams,

Bonding grows between those who are honest and true.

A sportspersons rage is like a messenger of death,

But the wise coach appeases it.

In the light of a veterans face there is life;

Their favour is like cool water on a hot day.

How much better to acquire education than money!

To develop intelligent clarity is a precious outcome.

The pathway of the upright avoids what is banned.

Whoever risk assesses mitigates harmful outcomes.

Pride is before poor performance,

and overconfidence leads to stumbling.

Better to be a reserve

than to never compete at all.

An athlete who is insightful will discover success,

and happy is the one trusting quality coaching.

The healthy heart beats rythmatically,

and the calm one thinks and speaks rationally.

Recognising the shot is anticipation,

but being deceived leads us the wrong way.

A wise performer speaks with insight

and is persuasive in discussion.

Sayings of squash taste like honey,

Sweet and restorative to ones motivation.

There are ways that seem right to athletes,

but in the end lead to poor performance.

An athletes’ appetite makes them work effectively

as hunger for high performance urges us onwards.

A worthless athlete fixates on failure obsessively;

They obsess over error and demotivate the team.

A troublemaker breaks up the teams spirit,

and a slanderer destroys relationships.

A violent athlete incites their opponent

and acts outside the spirit of squash.

They scheme to harm or belittle others,

They keep secret their shame and it magnifies within.

Gray hair is a sign of wisdom

when it is found on the head of a high performer.

The athlete slow to anger is better than a muscle bound fool,

and the one controlling their temper superior to hateful opposition.

The racket is spun to select the server,

but every decision thereafter is the referee’s domain.
