    I just started reading this book John Wooden-A lifetime of observations and reflections on and off the court. What a great man. If we all led our lives like Mr. Wooden, Earth would be a much better place. I thought I might share some of the book with you.

    Help Others

    "Oh, the great joy ther is in helping others, perhaps the greatest joy! You cannot have a perfect day without helping others with no thought of getting something in return. When we are helping others with the thought's of getting something back, it's not the same at all."

    "Jesus said, "It is more blessed to give than to recieve." We say these words but how often do we really believe them? They are always true."


    Make Each Day Your Masterpiece

    "This rule is even more important in life than basketball. You have to apply yourself each day to become a little better. By applying yourself to the task of becoming a little better each and every day over a period of time, you will become a lot better. Only then will you be able to approach being the best you can be. It begins by trying to make each day count and knowing you can never make up for a lost day."


    Make Friendship A Fine Art

    At times when I am feeling low,
    I hear from a friend and then
    My worries start to go away
    And I am on the mend.

    In spite of all that doctors know,
    And their studies never end,
    The best cure of all when spirits fall
    Is a kind note from a friend.

    -John Wooden

    I've always liked this quote by John Wooden.
    -"Failure to prepare is preparing to fail"

    If any of you have any quotes or poems or whatever. Please feel free to add them to this thread. I think we could all use some Inspiring words from time to time.

    And anyone who quotes Joe Walsh gets Props from me! Good call there....Here is another pretaining to Joe Walsh:


    "Don Henley wants to tell me how to live, I've got 2 words for you Don, Joe FUCKING Walsh"

    -Denis Leary (I may have that quote not 100% accurate, but the last part is right!)

    Friends:

    A friend is one who takes you to lunch even though you are not tax deductible-unknown

    Depth of friendship does not depend upon length of aquaintance-Rabindranath Tagore

    Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down-Oprah Winfrey

    Friendship is like money, easier made than kept-Samuel Butler

    The best friend is the man who in wishing me well wishes it for my sake-Aristotle
