Zitat des Tages von Vince Lombardi:
We didn't lose the game; we just ran out of time.
The measure of who we are is what we do with what we have.
I don't think there's a punch-line scheduled, is there?
The greatest accomplishment is not in never falling, but in rising again after you fall.
The will to win is the only thing.
Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.
Individual commitment to a group effort - that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.
Go back through football, and you will see that the team with the best defense wins.
Fatigue makes cowards of us all.
Show me a good loser, and I'll show you a loser.
People who work together will win, whether it be against complex football defenses, or the problems of modern society.
Coaches who can outline plays on a black board are a dime a dozen. The ones who win get inside their player and motivate.
If you're lucky enough to find a guy with a lot of head and a lot of heart, he's never going to come off the field second.
The leader can never close the gap between himself and the group. If he does, he is no longer what he must be. He must walk a tightrope between the consent he must win and the control he must exert.
The achievements of an organization are the results of the combined effort of each individual.
Winners never quit and quitters never win.
Winning isn't everything, it's the only thing.
If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?
Leaders are made, they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile.
I've never been with a losing team in my life, and I don't think I'll start now.
If you can shrug off a loss, you can't be a winner.
Football is like life - it requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication and respect for authority.
Teamwork is what the Green Bay Packers were all about. They didn't do it for individual glory. They did it because they loved one another.
Practice does not make perfect. Only perfect practice makes perfect.
A school without football is in danger of deteriorating into a medieval study hall.
It's not whether you get knocked down, it's whether you get up.
We would accomplish many more things if we did not think of them as impossible.
Why did I choose Washington among offers from other cities? Because it is the capital of the world.
Some people try to find things in this game that don't exist but football is only two things - blocking and tackling.
Once you learn to quit, it becomes a habit.
Once you agree upon the price you and your family must pay for success, it enables you to ignore the minor hurts, the opponent's pressure, and the temporary failures.
The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.
Confidence is contagious. So is lack of confidence.
Winning is not a sometime thing; it's an all the time thing. You don't win once in a while... you don't do things right once in a while... you do them right all the time. Winning is habit.
Winning is habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.
The real glory is being knocked to your knees and then coming back. That's real glory. That's the essence of it.
