John Wooden, happy birthday sir
In honor of the man who is considered to be one of the best coaches -- and people -- of all time, here are some of his words of wisdom, according to BrainyQuote.
"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."
"Don't let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do."
"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."
"Success is never final, failure is never fatal. It's courage that counts."
"Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming."
