“Lying makes a problem part of the future; truth makes a problem part of the past.” ~ Rick Pitino
“Effort is between you, and you, and nobody else. So that team that thinks it’s ready to see you, they think what they’ve seen on film, they ain’t saw what film shows, because every day is a new day. Every moment is a new moment. So now you’ve got to go out and show them that I’m a different creature now, than I was five minutes ago, cause I’m pissed off for greatness. Cause if you ain’t pissed off for greatness, that just means you’re okay with being mediocre, and ain’t no man in here okay with just basic.” ~ Ray Lewis, Speech for Stanford Basketball Team
“If you are insecure, guess what? The rest of the world is, too. Do not overestimate the competition and underestimate yourself. You are better than you think.” ~ Timothy Ferriss, The 4-Hour Workweek
“The body does not want you to do this. As you run, it tells you to stop but the mind must be strong. You always go too far for your body. You must handle the pain with strategy… It is not age; it is not diet. It is the will to succeed.” ~ Jacqueline Gareau, 1980 Boston Marathon Champ
“A lot of people run a race to see who’s the fastest. I run to see who has the most guts.” ~ Steve Prefontaine
“I’m not out there sweating for three hours every day just to find out what it feels like to sweat.” ~ Michael Jordan
“No matter how good you get you can always get better and that’s the exciting part.” ~ Tiger Woods
“Enter every activity without giving mental recognition to the possibility of defeat. Concentrate on your strengths instead of your weaknesses, on your powers instead of your problems.” ~ Paul J. Meyer
“Practice works because practice gives us a chance to relax enough to make smart choices.” ~ Seth Godin
“The harder I train, the quicker I get, the quicker I get, the slower the game, the slower the game, the more plays I make, the more plays I make, the more attention I get, the more attention I get, the more they try to stop me, the more they try to stop me, the harder I train.” ~ Unknown
“Being perfect is about being able to look your friends in the eye and know that you didn’t let them down, because you told them the truth. And that truth is that you did everything that you could. There wasn’t one more thing that you could’ve done. Can you live in that moment, as best you can, with clear eyes and love in your heart? With joy in your heart? If you can do that, gentlemen, then you’re perfect.” via Friday Night Lights
“Sport is where an entire life can be compressed into a few hours, where the emotions of a lifetime can be felt on an acre or two of ground, where a person can suffer and die and rise again on six miles of trails through a New York City park. Sport is a theater where sinner can turn saint and a common man become an uncommon hero, where the past and the future can fuse with the present. Sport is singularly able to give us peak experiences where we feel completely one with the world and transcend all conflicts as we finally become our own potential.” ~ Dr. George Sheehan
