John Wooden’s Birthday

Today he would have been 100. What an amazing man of character. Listen to these quotes of genius:

“Things turn out best for the people who make the best out of the way things turn out.”
“Never mistake activity for achievement.”
“Be quick but don’t hurry.”
“It is what you learn after you know it all that counts.”
“Talent is God-given. Be humble. Fame is man-given. Be grateful. Conceit is self-given. Be careful.”
“You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.”
“If you don’t have the time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?”
“Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.”
“Make each day your masterpiece.”

Wow – what a way with words. What a great man and a great coach.
