R.I.P. John Wooden

In his own words:

“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.”
   
“If you’re not making mistakes, then you’re not doing anything. I’m positive that a doer makes mistakes.”
   
“You can’t let praise or criticism get to you. It’s a weakness to get caught up in either one.”
   
“Don’t let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.”
   
“Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.”
   
“If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?”
   
“Ability may get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there.”
