Quotable Sunday ~Athletes

I came across a great quote on my iGoogle page this week from Tommy Lasorda of all people, so today I thought I would look for quotes from famous athletes or coaches.


"The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person's determination." ~Tommy Lasorda

"If you'll not settle for anything less than your best, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish in your lives." ~Vince Lombardi

"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." ~Bear Bryant

"There is only one person who can define success life—and that’s you". ~ Michael Jordan

"If you're trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I've had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it". ~Michael Jordan

This one is so true:

No-one can judge your success but you.

I really like: "If you're trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I've had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it". ~Michael Jordan
