Unforced Error - The New York Times - MARCH 9, 2013
The term, "unforced error," has become a staple of the popular vernacular
since its introduction in tennis three decades ago.
All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
-Mark Twain
