Training for Victory: “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.” Posted by Chris Kriegh, this quote, from legendary Alabama football coach Bear Bryant, is sure to get your blood pumping in the gym.
During the Game: “Gold medals aren’t really made of gold. They’re made of sweat, determination and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.” Posted by KC Defilipps, this quote comes from Olympic wrestler Dan Gable, who won gold in Munich at the 1972 Olympic Games without giving up a single point.
After the Win: “Veni, vidi, vici.” Posted by Dakota Dotson, this quote is attributed to Julius Caesar, commenting on his swift victory over Pharnaces II of Pontus in 47 BC. It translates as “I came, I saw, I conquered.”
