“For life–which is in any way worthy, is like ascending a mountain. When you have climbed to the first shoulder of the hill, you find another rise above you, and yet another peak, and the height to be achieved seems infinity: but you find as you ascend that the air becomes purer and more bracing, that the clouds gather more frequently below than above, that the sun is warmer than before and that you not only get a clearer view of Heaven, but that you gain a wider view of earth, and that your horizon is perpetually growing larger.” ~ Endicott Peabody
“I grew up on a farm. We learned that there was a season to plant, a season to water, and season to harvest. The planting and watering could be laborious, but without those stages, there would never be a harvest.” ~ John Wooden

“Success is peace of mind in knowing you did your best.” ~ John Wooden
“Never try to be better than someone else. Learn from others, and try to be the best you can be. Success is the by-product of that preparation.” ~ John Wooden
“It is amazing how much can be accomplished if no one cares who gets the credit.” ~ John Wooden
