Summer Olympics Quotes By Bunmi Laditan

Parents love bathtime because it means that bedtime is near. To prepare your darling for her bath, put on your full-length poncho, because toddlers don't bathe, they splash, motherfucker.

The good news is that wiping up all that water counts as mopping the floor. — Bunmi Laditan

Summer Olympics Quotes By Lolo Jones

Success is always an easier motivator, because you want more of it. But I've also been motivated by failure. Had I medaled in London, I don't think I would be one of the few that have gone to a Summer and Winter. I would have been content with that medal. Instead, I used that failure to go to the Winter Olympics. I always tell people that failure can be one of your biggest motivators if you just have an attitude adjustment about it. — Lolo Jones
