1910-2010

All said by John Wooden:

“Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.”

“Do not let what you can’t do interfere with what you can do.”

“Don’t measure yourself by what you have accomplished, but by what you should accomplish with your ability.”

“If you go as far as you can see, you will then see enough to go even farther.”

“Make each day your masterpiece.”

“Respect a man, and he will do all the more.”

“There are many things that are essential to arriving at true peace of mind, and one of the most important is faith, which cannot be acquired without prayer.”

“You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.”

“If you’re not making mistakes, then you’re not doing anything. I’m positive that a doer makes mistakes.”

“Talent is God given. Be humble. Fame is man-given. Be grateful. Conceit is self-given. Be careful.”

“If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?”

“Never mistake activity for achievement.”

“Success is never final, failure is never fatal. It’s courage that counts.”

“Material possessions, winning scores, and great reputations are meaningless in the eyes of the Lord, because He knows what we really are and that is all that matters.”

“Adversity is the state in which man mostly easily becomes acquainted with himself, being especially free of admirers then.”

“I am not what I ought to be, not what I want to be, not what I am going to be, but thankful that I am not what I used to be.”

“Be quick but don’t hurry.”

May the angels speed you quickly to Nell.
