Default QUOTES THREAD :

I used to keep a colletion of quotes in a notebook years ago, but
when I got laid off from my last job in 2002, The notebook got lost
in the move either while moving my personal belongings out of my
office, or in the move from Greenville to Columbia. I've just decided
to start re-collecting good quotes that I can add to a new notebook.

SO:

I'm going to sticky this thread here in the WaterCooler. Post any good
Quotes you know of, or run across in this thread. Quotes about anything.
Sports, Life, Love, Comical etc. . . . ..

Just keep them Safe to view here on the board. . .any other will be
deleted.


One I just saw as someone's signature on another board that I loved:

"Some people are born on third base, and go through life thinking they
hit a triple" !!

i have to set this up a little...

a few buddies and i crashed a party in high school out of town. some ladies, who were not necessarily attractive decided to act like witches minus the "w" and plus a "b", confronted us about why we were there.

the next thing out of my mouth was something i've been quote for since then...

"I came here for two reasons: to drink some beer and get laid. Well it looks like I have more beer so I guess I'll be seeing you ladies later."

Quote:
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
William Earnest Henley excerpt from poem "Invictus"

Quote:
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man my son!
-Rudyard Kipling excerpt from "If"

“Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow.’”
Mary Anne Radmacher

“The Vision of a Champion is someone who is bent over, drenched in sweat, and the point of exhaustion, when no one else is watching."

Never quit. It is the easiest cop-out in the world. Set a goal and don't quit until you attain it. When you do attain it, set another goal, and don't quit until you reach it. Never quit.

I could go on and on with quotes from Wooden. What an inspiration he is.
I had these two quotes in that notebook. . and as you said, a few more
from the great coach W. He reminded me a lot of Coach Holtz when he
was in his prime. Just listening to Coach Wooden talk you soon realize
this was not a man who just made a lot of good quotes in his speeches
but he was a guy that truely believed everyone of those famous quotes
and lived and coached by them . . . . . . no doubt whatsoever why he
was successful.
