29. 'Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.'
Contents
  • About the author and the illustrator; Part title; Title page; Dedication; Foreword; Introduction; 1. 'If it is to be, it is up to me.'; 2. Success is best measured by how far you have come with the talents you have been given.; 3. You don't play a match for 100 minutes--you play for 6000 seconds.; 4. 'Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear--not absence of fear.'; 5. 'Some men see things as they are and ask why? Others dream things that never were and ask why not?'; 6. Winning isn't everything. It is just a lot better than the alternative
  • 7. 'Luck is what you have left over after you give 100 per cent.'8. 'Chess may start as an art or a science. But in the end, physical endurance is so important that it becomes an athletic event.'; 9. 'It is a lot tougher to be a football coach than to be a president. You've got four years as a president and they guard you. A coach doesn't have anyone to protect him when things go wrong.'; 10. 'I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.'; 11. 'Learn to listen, and listen to learn.'
  • 12. You are not a champion unless you are consistent. You can have champion potential, but a true champion is on the job nine times out of ten. 13. Practice makes perfect is bullshit. Perfect practice makes perfect.; 14. 'I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered.'; 15. Anything you do is worth doing well--anything less than that and you're wasting your time.; 16. Loyalty is a notion to be treated with care. You pay your dues and are paid your due. But a man is not a sheep.; 17. 'Imagination is more important than knowledge.'
  • 18. 'A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.'; 19. 'Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.'; 20. 'In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.'; 21. The best definition of professionalism is to work towards the complete eradication of error.; 22. 'If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.'; 23. 'Winning is not a sometime thing
  • It's an all-time thing. You don't win once in a while, you don't do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time. Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.'24. 'Two stonecutters were asked what they were doing. The first said, "I'm cutting stone into blocks." The second replied, "I'm on a team that's building a cathedral."'; 25. 'Do not go gentle into that good night.'; 26. 'Sport is not just a game.'; 27. 'A champion is the guy who gets up when he can't.'; 28. 'The meek might inherit the earth, but that's only because they bite the dust.'
