Best Olympics Quotes By John Wooden

A Dominican monk, Father Henri Didon, used it as a watchword for his pupils in sports at Arcueil College in Paris.

I mentioned constantly that all I wanted them to do was the best they could.

Sometimes the other fellow is just better than you are. — John Wooden
