Today we mourn the passing of a truly exemplary leader. John Wooden is undeniably one of the greatest, if not the single greatest, coaches in the history of sports. He will be sorely missed. We extend our condolences to his family and offer a few of our favorite John Wooden quotes in his honor:
“Never mistake activity for achievement.” – John Wooden
“If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?” – John Wooden
“Winning takes talent, to repeat takes character.” – John Wooden
“The man who complains about the way the ball bounces is likely the one who dropped it.” – Lou Holtz
“Luck is when preparation meets opportunity.” – Coach K, speaking at the Duke Basketball Banquet, April 24, 2009.
