Words of wisdom from Paul "Bear" Bryant (U.S. football)

Friday, August 23, 2013

This man is and was loved by fans and his football players. When I read some of his words I thought they might be good for all of us. His record shows he knew what he was talking about. He was a winner and he was able to motivate his players to become winners. As I read about goals it sounded just like what we learn here on sparkpeople.com. Margarette

Paul "Bear" Bryant won 323 football games and 6 national championships during his 38 years as head coach at U of AL, Texas A&M, Kentucky & Maryland.

NEVER QUIT. It is the easiest cop-out in the world.
Set a GOAL and don't quit until you attain it.
WHEN you do attain it , set another GOAL and DON'T QUIT UNTIL
YOU REACH IT.
NEVER QUIT

There's a lot of blood, sweat and guts between DREAMS and SUCCESS.

    Thank you for sharing that. I was wondering what was up with you and Bear Bryant! LOL

He did have a few memorable moments of having said something quite deep that he left his players with.

    There are somethings in life that we need to quit; just as there are somethings in life we should never quit. In either case, there is help available. God Bless YOU! Vic.
