The use of the shuttle-cock is an excellent mode of exercise.... The shuttle-cock was a fashionable pastime among grown persons in the reign of James I, and it is a most desirable circumstance that it should again become fashionable, especially among young ladies. With the advantage of its being a social diversion, it most agreeably exercises the whole human frame, by the various attitudes the players are perpetually putting themselves in; of course, it creates a graceful pliancy in the joints and muscles, accelerates the circulation of the blood, and propels to the cutaneous pores, all the fluids prepared by nature to pass off by this easy and salutary way; it also promotes the digestive powers... ~Thomas John Graham, Sure Methods of Improving Health, and Prolonging Life; or, A Treatise on the Art of Living Long and Comfortably, by Regulating the Diet and Regimen, 1827

Man is nothing more than a shuttle-cock of fate, walloped around the circle of his own livid existence by the decree of adversity. ~W.T. McAtee, 1916
