Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing.

The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.

The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.

Winners never quit and quitters never win.

The measure of who we are is what we do with what we have.

The achievements of an organization are the results of the combined effort of each individual.

The greatest accomplishment is not in never falling, but in rising again after you fall.

Confidence is contagious. So is lack of confidence.

Leaders are made, they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile.

Character is just another word for having a perfectly disciplined and educated will. A person can make his own character by blending these elements with an intense desire to achieve excellence. Everyone is different in what I will call magnitude, but the capacity to achieve character is still the same.

If you can accept losing, you can’t win.
