Happy Birthday Coach Wooden!

Some of my favorite famous Coach Wooden quotes:

Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming.

Failing to prepare is preparing to fail.

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.

Learn as if you were to live forever; live as if you were to die tomorrow.

Don’t give up on your dreams, or your dreams will give up on you.

And also a pair of my favorite not-quite-as-famous quotes from coach:

Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.

You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.
