“You can measure somebody’s character by how they treat people that can’t do them any good or can’t fight back”
“You don’t have to win a championship to be a champion”
A fool despises instruction
People don’t like you for what they see in you but what you see in them.
The greatest feelings are expressed in silence
“You can play with all the intensity of a mad dog in a meat house but if you aren’t smart, sooner or later you’ll get a bullet between your eyes.”
Start slow, get a rhythm, go fast enough to make a mistake.
Make practices tougher than games
Confidence comes from demonstrated ability
Champions don’t look at it like a sacrifice, champions do what needs to be done
When the pupil is ready the teacher will appear
“It’s not what you achieve, it’s what you become.”
“Know who you are and what your game is.”
What you accept in victory, you accept in defeat
“Do the ordinary things extra ordinarily well”
Make practices like games and games like practices
“Happiness begins when selfishness end”
“We have met the enemy and he is us.”
We must practice and play with the intensity and poise of a national championship team
Sometimes a good enemy is better than a good friend.
“It’s not what you teach it’s what you emphasize”
