This is a scan (well, two scans stitched together) of the entry for GAME in Stevenson's Book of Quotations, tenth edition, 1974:

This book is 2,300 pages long (2,816 if you include the indeces). It's four inches thick. In all those pages, the most it can manage is three columns on games. I don't believe that this is a reflection of the editorial decisions of the compiler (although it could be); rather, I suspect it's that no-one famous ever said much about games.

Oh, life before the personal computer...
