       “What this power is I cannot say; all I know is that it exists and it becomes available only when a man is in that state of mind in which he knows exactly what he

         wants and is fully determined not to quit until he finds it.”  Alexander Graham Bell

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Saturday, April 19, 2014 - Ray Bradbury

 

 

“Americans are far more remarkable than we give ourselves credit for. We’ve been so

busy damning ourselves for years. We’ve done it all, and yet we don’t take credit for it.”

And

“Don’t think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It’s self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can’t try to do things. You simply must do things.”

then don’t do it.”

And

“If you enjoy living, it is not difficult to keep the sense of wonder.”

And

“Love is the answer to everything. It’s the only reason to do anything. If you don’t write stories you love, you’ll never make it. If you don’t write stories that other people love, you’ll never make it.”

And

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Thursday, April 17, 2014 - Colin Powell

 

 

“A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.”

And

“Fit no stereotypes. Don’t chase the latest management fads. The situation dictates

which approach best accomplishes the team’s mission.”

And

“Get mad, then get over it.”

And

“Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument,

debate and doubt, to offer a solution everybody can understand.”

And

“Leadership is solving problems. The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is

the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help or concluded you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership.”

And

10 Leadership Tenets from Colin Powell, Stanford Business School

1. Successful leaders know how to define their mission, convey it to their subordinates and ensure they have the right tools and training needed to get the job done.

2. “Leadership is all about people…and getting the most out of people.”

3. Leaders should never show fear or anger. “You have to have a sense of optimism.”

4. Effective leaders are made, not born. They learn from trial and error, and from experience.

5. Leadership is about conveying a sense of purpose in a selfless manner and creating conditions of trust while displaying moral and physical courage.

6. A false leader is someone who fails to get the necessary resources for his or her staff to do their jobs.

7. “The best leaders are those who can communicate upward the fears and desires of

their subordinates, and are willing to fight for what is needed. If not, the organization will weaken and crumble.”

8. When something fails, a true leader learns from the experience and puts it behind

him. “You don’t get reruns in life. Don’t worry about what happened in the past.”

9. Good leaders must know how to reward those who succeed and know when to retrain, move, or fire ineffective staff.

10. “You know you’re a good leader when people follow you out of curiosity.”

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Wednesday, April 16, 2014 - Grantland Rice

 

 

“A wise man makes his own decisions, an ignorant man follows the public opinion.”

And

“Depend upon yourself. Make your judgement trustworthy by trusting it. You can develop good judgement as you do the muscles of your body – by judicious, daily exercise. To be known as a man of sound judgement will be much in your favor.”

And

“Does the road wind up-hill all the way? Yes, to the very end. Will the day’s journey take the whole long day? From morn to night, my friend.”

And

“Eighteen holes of match play will teach you more about your foe than 18 years of dealing with him across a desk.”

And

“You are meant to play the ball as it lies, a fact that may help to touch on your own objective approach to life.”

And

“Outlined against a blue-gray October sky, the Four Horsemen rode again. In dramatic lore their names are Death, Destruction, Pestilence, and Famine. But those are aliases. Their real names are: Stuhldreher, Crowley, Miller and Layden. They formed the crest of the South Bend cyclone before which another fighting Army team was swept over the precipice at the Polo Grounds this afternoon as 55,000 spectators peered down upon the bewildering panorama spread out upon the green plain below.”

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Tuesday, April 15, 2014 - Tom Wolfe

 

 

“If a conservative is a liberal who’s been mugged, a liberal is a conservative who’s been arrested.”

And

“Love is the ultimate expression of the will to live.”

And

“I never forget. I never forgive. I can wait. I find it very easy to harbor a grudge. I have scores to settle.”

And

“Perhaps this is our strange and haunting paradox here in America — that we are fixed and certain only when we are in movement. At any rate, that is how it seemed to young George Webber, who was never so assured of his purpose as when he was going

somewhere on a train. And he never had the sense of home so much as when he felt that he was going there. It was only when he got there that his homelessness began.”

And

“This is man, who, if he can remember ten golden moments of joy and happiness out of

all his years, ten moments unmarked by care, unseamed by aches or itches, has power to lift himself with his expiring breath and say: “I have lived upon this earth and known glory!”

And

And

“America – It is a fabulous country, the only fabulous country; it is the only place where miracles not only happen, but where they happen all the time”

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day – Monday, April 14, 2014 – Jack London

 

 

“There is an ecstasy that marks the summit of life, and beyond which life cannot rise.

And such is the paradox of living, this ecstasy comes when one is most alive, and it comes as a complete forgetfulness that one is alive.”

And

“The trouble with him was that he was without imagination. He was quick and alert in

the things of life, but only in the things, and not in the significances.”

And

“I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong

them. I shall use my time.”

And

“Life is not always a matter of holding good cards, but sometimes, playing a poor hand well.”

And

“There are things greater than our wisdom, beyond our justice. The right and wrong of this we cannot say, and it is not for us to judge.”

And

“He lacked the wisdom, and the only way for him to get it was to buy it with his youth;

and when wisdom was his, youth would have been spent buying it”

And

“San Francisco is gone. Nothing remains of it but memories.”

And

“If cash comes with fame, come fame; if cash comes without fame, come cash.”

through life.”
