The Wizard's Wisdom

Posted June 9, 2010


The Wizard's WisdomThe life lessons taught by John Wooden have become legend. Here's a collection of some of the greatest "Woodenisms."

"Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out."


"Never mistake activity for achievement."


"Adversity is the state in which man mostly easily becomes acquainted with himself, being especially free of admirers then."


"Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are."


"Be prepared and be honest."


"Be quick, but don't hurry."


"You can't let praise or criticism get to you. It's a weakness to get caught up in either one."


"You can't live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you."


"What you are as a person is far more important than what you are as a basketball player."


"Winning takes talent; to repeat takes character."


"A coach is someone who can give correction without causing resentment."


"I'd rather have a lot of talent and a little experience than a lot of experience and a little talent."


"If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?"
