Wisdom from The Wizard


My favorite coach, teacher, and role model is the late John Wooden. I look back at some of his quotes from time to time. His simple words provide wisdom to stay grounded and press ahead. Here are a few of my favorites:


Talent is God given.

Be humble.

Fame is man-given.

Be grateful.

Conceit is self-given.

Be careful.

— John Wooden


A coach is someone who can give correction without causing resentment.

— John Wooden



Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming.

— John Wooden


All of life is peaks and valleys. Don't let the peaks get too high and the valleys too low.

— John Wooden



Don't let making a living prevent you from making a life.

— John Wooden


Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.

— John Wooden


It's what you learn after you know it all that counts.

— John Wooden
