“You’re never a loser until you quit trying.” —Mike Ditka

You’re not always going to win every game, but you always have to try. Athletes learn that if you give great effort but lose, you can still walk away with pride and dignity and the respect of your teammates. If you quit before giving it your all, you’ll achieve nothing and lose the respect of those around you.
