Sports for me is when a guy walks off the court, and you really can't tell whether he won or lost, when he carries himself with pride either way.
Nothing will work unless you do.
The spirit, the will to win, and the will to excel are the things that endure. These qualities are so much more important than the events that occur.
The secret to success is doing the best that you can do. Forget about whether you might win or lose. By working hard and practicing the skills that you need to perform, the results will take care of themselves. Being successful is about doing your best.
Set your goals high, and don't stop till you get there.
Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must; just never give up.
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.
It's just a job. Grass grows, birds fly, waves pound the sand. I beat people up.

Push yourself again and again. Don't give an inch until the final buzzer sounds.

I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
It's not whether you get knocked down, it's whether you get up.
One man practicing sportsmanship is far better than a hundred teaching it.
I hated every minute of training, but I said, 'Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.'
Never let your head hang down. Never give up and sit down and grieve. Find another way.
Being defeated is often a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent.
Desire is the most important factor in the success of any athlete.
Champions are made from something they have deep inside of them-a desire, a dream, a vison.
Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.
If you can believe it, the mind can achieve it.
