"Don't let what you can't do interfere with what you can do."
"Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Character is what you really are, while reputation is merely what others think you are."
"Discipline yourself and others won't need to."
The above quotes are by the famous basketball coach John Wooden. He coached at UCLA for 27 years. He is in the Basketball Hall of Fame as both a player and a coach. Though he was the winningest-ever college basketball coach, he stressed that all his players get an education and graduate from college. At UCLA, his teams won 620 games and lost 147. They won 10 NCAA championships in 12 years and once had an 88 game winning streak!
