Life is 10 percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.
It’s not the load that breaks you down, it’s the way you carry it.
When all is said and done, more is said than done.
You’ll never get ahead of anyone as long as you try to get even with him.
You’re never as good as everyone tells you when you win, and you’re never as bad as they say when you lose.
Ability is what you’re capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.
Your talent determines what you can do. Your motivation determines how much you are willing to do. Your attitude determines how well you do it.
I never learn anything talking. I only learn things when I ask questions.
If you’re bored with life, if you don’t get up every morning with a burning desire to do things, you don’t have enough goals.
Without self-discipline, success is impossible, period.
Adversity is another way to measure the greatness of individuals. I never had a crisis that didn’t make me stronger.
Virtually nothing is impossible in this world if you just put your mind to it and maintain a positive attitude.
My philosophy in life is, Decide what you want to do. You have to have something to hope for.
I think that everybody needs four things in life. Everybody needs something to do regardless of age. Everybody needs someone to love. Everybody needs something to hope for, and, of course, everybody needs someone to believe in.
The problem with having a sense of humor is often that people you use it on aren’t in a very good mood.
Winners embrace hard work. They love the discipline of it, the trade-off they’re making to win. Losers, on the other hand, see it as punishment. And that’s the difference.
At home I have a copy of the April 21, 1986, issue of ‘Sports Illustrated.’ I’m on the cover with the blurb, ‘Can Lou Do It?’ I’d just arrived at Notre Dame, and with spring football underway, I was the focal point of that week’s coverage.
I look at athletes in all sports and try to picture what kind of football player they’d be, what position they’d play and so on.
Sacrifice, discipline and prayer are essential. We gain strength through God’s word. We receive grace from the sacrament. And when we fumble due to sin – and it’s gonna happen – confession puts us back on the field.
If you’re bored with life – you don’t get up every morning with a burning desire to do things – you don’t have enough goals.
I follow three rules: Do the right thing, do the best you can, and always show people you care.
Do right. Do your best. Treat others as you want to be treated.
I do know this: God does answer your prayers, but it’s not always in the way you expect. God knows what’s best for us, though, so there’s no need to worry when things don’t go how we originally wanted them to go.
I think life is a matter of choices and that wherever we are, good or bad, is because of choices we make.
I’m proud to be part of the Dr. Pepper Scholarship Giveaway. It’s a great program that gives me the chance to brighten the day for some lucky college students with free tuition.
The key to winning is choosing to do God’s will and loving others with all you’ve got.
I can’t believe that God put us on this earth to be ordinary.
My wife told me if there is any rumors about me, it better be about politics and not about my social life.
When the bank asks me about my assets, I include my friendship with Regis Philbin.
We can all be successful and make money, but when we die, that ends. But when you are significant is when you help other people be successful. That lasts many a lifetime.
No matter what happens on the field, getting an education makes you a winner.
Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.
