John Wooden Quote: “It’s important to keep trying to do what you think is right no matter how hard it is or how often you fail. Never stop trying.”
John Wooden Quote: “I never yelled at my players much. That would have been artificial stimulation, which doesn’t last very long. I think it’s like love and passion.

John Wooden Quote: “Your energy and enjoyment, drive and dedication will stimulate and greatly inspire others.”
John Wooden Quote: “Goals should be difficult to achieve because those achieved with little effort are seldom appreciated, give little personal satisfaction, and are often not very worthwhile. There is a price to be paid for achieving anything of significance.”
