Recently I heard a dear friend preach and he illustrated a point by quoting Vince Lombardi. This lead me to look in to a few of his quotes. Here is the cream that I found:
Fatigue makes cowards of us all.
If you cheat in practice, you’ll cheat in the game. If you cheat in the game, you’ll cheat in life.
If you aren’t fired with enthusiasm, you will be fired with enthusiasm.
It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get up again.
Execution wins it.
Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.
The dictionary is the only place where success comes before work. Hard work is the price we must all pay for success.
The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender.
The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to his commitment to excellence, regardless of his chosen field of endeavor.
The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of knowledge, not a lack of strength, but rather, a lack of wills.
If it doesn’t matter who wins or loses, why do they keep score?
I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is the moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle — victorious.
The good Lord gave you a body that withstand almost anything, it is your mind you must convince.
