#21. I was sports editor for my high school newspaper, but I think I shied away from journalism. #Quote by Jenna Bush
Sports quotes by Kurt Angle
#22. The Olympics is not really about the sport, it's about the story behind the person.

Keep it simple, and keep the story on the individual. #Quote by Kurt Angle

Sports quotes by Jill Douglas

#40. School failed me, and I failed the school. It bored me. The teachers behaved like Feldwebel (sergeants). I wanted to learn what I wanted to know, but they wanted me to learn for the exam. What I hated most was the competitive system there, and especially sports. Because of this, I wasn't worth anything, and several times they suggested I leave. #Quote by Albert Einstein

Sports quotes by Brian Sipe

Sports quotes by Linda Sanchez
#55. I've used my experience from playing sports in almost every aspect of my life. Playing soccer is where I found my voice, and playing softball was where I learned precision, and in every game I learned to play as a member of a team - to work not for my own glory, but for a shared goal. #Quote by Linda Sanchez
Sports quotes by Bob Costas
#56. If every university president said, 'The revenue producing sports: basketball, football - potentially revenue producing at most universities - maybe in a few cases women's basketball, if every one of them had a monitor that reported directly to the university president and no 'student-athlete' ever gets into this college or university who could not plausibly be admitted if we did not have a football or basketball team, end of problem. It won't happen because it's like unilaterally disarming. You know your opponent won't do it and then you'll get crushed in every game, but it's a simple thing. #Quote by Bob Costas
Sports quotes by Gabe Jennings
#57. Often I visualize a quicker, like almost a ghost runner, ahead of me with a quicker stride. It's really crazy. In races, this always happens to me. I see the vision of a runner ahead of me, maybe just 15, 20 meters ahead of me, and the cadence of that runner, which is actually me in the future, is a little quicker, so if I'm going (his rhythm/breathing), then my ghost runner, the vision of me, ahead of me, like opening up and just going for it, is quicker . #Quote by Gabe Jennings

#58. Nearly half of all associational memberships are church-religious context.

Sports quotes by Barry S. Strauss

Sports quotes by Hank Stram
#65. You cannot win if you cannot run. #Quote by Hank Stram
Sports quotes by Adam Silver
#66. Let me be clear: Any new approach must ensure the integrity of the game. One of my most important responsibilities as commissioner of the NBA is to protect the integrity of professional basketball and preserve public confidence in the league and our sport. I oppose any course of action that would compromise these objectives. But I believe that sports betting should be brought out of the underground and into the sunlight where it can be appropriately monitored and regulated #Quote by Adam Silver
Sports quotes by Roy Campanella
#67. When asked about which team is the toughest team in the league, responded with an answer that all volleyball players must comprehend. He said simply that it was, 'The team you are playing.' #Quote by Roy Campanella

Sports quotes by John Krasinski
#69. The first acting thing I ever did was my senior year I decided not to play a sport in the Spring and, in that Spring B.J. Novak who went to school with me, asked if I'd be in this show that was a parody of all the teachers in the school, 'sure!' That was the first acting thing I did. #Quote by John Krasinski
Sports quotes by Bernadine Dohrn
#70. I'm so unhappy with electoral politics that I switched to sports radio. #Quote by Bernadine Dohrn
Sports quotes by Jill Lepore
#71. It feels silly to watch endless hours of winter sports every four years, when we never watch them any other time, and we don't even understand the rules, which doesn't stop us from scoring everyone, every run, every skate, every race. #Quote by Jill Lepore
Sports quotes by Francois Hollande

Sports quotes by Chade-Meng Tan
#75. I was always very different from the other kids. I have an I.Q. of 156. I didn't play sports. I thought big. I thought I could achieve great things. I don't want to sound megalomaniac, but my whole life is about doing something for the world, from as far back as I can remember. #Quote by Chade-Meng Tan
Sports quotes by George Deukmejian
#76. The difference in golf and government is that in golf you can't improve your lie. #Quote by George Deukmejian
Sports quotes by Harry Crews
#77. I think all of us are looking for that which does not admit of bullshit ... If you tell me you can bench press 450, hell, we'll load up the bar and put you under it. Either you can do it or you can't do it - you can't bullshit. Ultimately, sports are just about as close to what one would call the truth as it is possible to get in this world. #Quote by Harry Crews
Sports quotes by Richard Attias
#78. Sport is one of the few spaces where people can learn about different cultures in a spirit of trust and friendship. #Quote by Richard Attias

Sports quotes by Buckethead
#80. We are civilized animals, right? Then why do we continue to slaughter for sport? What if you were a Chicken, how would you feel? I grew up in a Chicken Coop and I was not a Chicken at first, until I was faced with your World! #Quote by Buckethead

Sports quotes by Frank Deford

Sports quotes by Mick Cochrane
#83. Molly stood up. You made an error! She felt like saying. A bad throw. So what? It's a baseball game. A game. Who really cares? A bad throw? In the great scheme of things? A bad throw? Of course she didn't say that. She understood that your own errors always feel tragic. #Quote by Mick Cochrane
Sports quotes by Grant Hackett
#84. I can definitely take more off my world record - a lot more. I have no doubt about that. I'm by no means putting pressure on myself, it's just the belief I have in myself ... I'm not going to limit myself by nominating times or anything like that. I never thought I'd do 14:34 and I did. I thought I'd maybe do 14:38 or 14:39 that day, and I went nearly five seconds quicker so I don't want to limit the possibilities #Quote by Grant Hackett
Sports quotes by Garrison Keillor
#85. What keeps faith cheerful is the extreme persistence of gentleness and humor. Gentleness is everywhere in daily life, a sign that faith rules through ordinary things: through cooking and small talk, through storytelling, making love, fishing, tending animals and sweet corn and flowers, through sports, music, and books, raising kids-all the places where the gravy soaks in and grace shines through. Even in a time of elephantine vanity and greed, one never has to look far to see the campfires of gentle people. Lacking any other purpose in life, it would be good enough to live for their sake. #Quote by Garrison Keillor
Sports quotes by Andre Agassi
#86. Nothing can substitute for just plain hard work. I had to put in the time to get back. And it was a grind. It meant training and sweating every day. But I was completely committed to working out to prove to myself that I still could do it. #Quote by Andre Agassi
Sports quotes by Jay Kay
#87. All I want to know is that I can keep this house for the rest of my days and I want to make good music ... and have the odd sports car in the garage, obviously! #Quote by Jay Kay
Sports quotes by Mariah Nelson
#88. Too often girls accept that of course the boys will get better lighting and seating at their sports events, of course the football team will get more attention, privileges, and space in the yearbook. We need to teach girls to look around and notice when they're being treated like second-class citizens, and then to insist on equal treatment. #Quote by Mariah Nelson
Sports quotes by Cristiano Ronaldo
#89. I know If I score we're going to win the match. #Quote by Cristiano Ronaldo
Sports quotes by Pete Rozelle
#90. Pro football was taking off when I became commissioner, and when a sport's successful and you're its chief executive officer, much of the credit flows to you and you develop a good track record. #Quote by Pete Rozelle
Sports quotes by Barnaby Conrad
#91. Only bullfighting, mountain climbing and auto racing are sports, the rest are merely games. #Quote by Barnaby Conrad
Sports quotes by Danny Meyer
#92. Restaurants and chefs have become followed by such a broad swath of the public, in a way that used to be reserved for sports stars, movie stars, and theater actors. Restaurants are in the firmament of today's common culture. #Quote by Danny Meyer
Sports quotes by Wayne Gretzky
#93. Hockey is a unique sport in the sense that you need each and every guy helping each other and pulling in the same direction to be successful. #Quote by Wayne Gretzky
Sports quotes by George Lincoln Rockwell

Sports quotes by Mike Krzyzewski
#95. First of all, what happens is, when you're good at something, you spend a lot of time with it. People identify you with that sport, so it becomes part of your identity. #Quote by Mike Krzyzewski
Sports quotes by Landon Donovan
#96. I would probably say that being a commissioner in sports is one of the hardest jobs in the world. #Quote by Landon Donovan
Sports quotes by Annie Dillard
#97. Father had stretched out his long legs and was tilting back in his chair. Mother sat with her knees crossed, in blue slacks, smoking a Chesterfield. The dessert dishes were still on the table. My sisters were nowhere in evidence. It was a warm evening; the big dining-room windows gave onto blooming rhododendrons.

Mother regarded me warmly. She gave me to understand that she was glad I had found what I had been looking for, but that she and father were happy to sit with their coffee, and would not be coming down.

She did not say, but I understood at once, that they had their pursuits (coffee?) and I had mine. She did not say, but I began to understand then, that you do what you do out of your private passion for the thing itself.

I had essentially been handed my own life. In subsequent years my parents would praise my drawings and poems, and supply me with books, art supplies, and sports equipment, and listen to my troubles and enthusiasms, and supervise my hours, and discuss and inform, but they would not get involved with my detective work, nor hear about my reading, nor inquire about my homework or term papers or exams, nor visit the salamanders I caught, nor listen to me play the piano, nor attend my field hockey games, nor fuss over my insect collection with me, or my poetry collection or stamp collection or rock collection. My days and nights were my own to plan and fill. #Quote by Annie Dillard
Sports quotes by Renee Lawless
#98. We live in a reward-centered society. When I was a child, my father used to say, "It's not whether you win or lose but how well you play the game." I used to think that was about sports, but as an adult, I realize what I create, do, etc., is more important than winning a prize. #Quote by Renee Lawless
Sports quotes by Michael Ellsberg
#99. Learning is available at the library for free; under a tree with a dog-eared paperback; at a job with a boss who gives you responsibility and mentorship; while traveling; while leading a cause, movement, or charity; while writing a novel or composing a poem or crafting a song; while interning, apprenticing, or volunteering; while playing a sport or immersing yourself in a language; while starting a business; and now, while watching a TED talk or taking a Khan Academy class ... #Quote by Michael Ellsberg
Sports quotes by Pat Summitt
#100. The willingness to experiment with change may be the most essential ingredient to success at anything. #Quote by Pat Summitt
Sports quotes by Cora Carmack
#101. In Texas, two things are cherished above all else- football and gossip. #Quote by Cora Carmack
Sports quotes by Julia Mancuso
#102. I work out a lot, but I like to do action sports. A lot of surfing, mountain-biking. #Quote by Julia Mancuso
Sports quotes by Bonnie Blair
#103. The sport I love has taken me around the world and shown me many things. #Quote by Bonnie Blair
Sports quotes by Dennis Rodman
#104. There is so much hypocrisy in sports. #Quote by Dennis Rodman
Sports quotes by Delbert McClinton
#105. It ain't what you eat but how you chew it. #Quote by Delbert McClinton
Sports quotes by John Updike
#106. Baseball is meant to be fun, and not all the solemn money-men in fur-collared greatcoats, not all the scruffy media cameramen and sour-faced reporters that crowd around the dugouts can quite smother the exhilarating spaciousness and grace of this impudently relaxed sport, a game of innumerable potential redemptions and curious disappointments. #Quote by John Updike
Sports quotes by Robin Farina
#107. I think cycling is a sport where you cannot be discouraged easily you have to keep going back at it. The first few times you race or try to get into the sport there is a good chance you might find yourself off the back. #Quote by Robin Farina
Sports quotes by Cam Newton
#108. But yet I don't think I should be labeled just a black quarterback, because it's bigger things in this sport that need to be accomplished. #Quote by Cam Newton
Sports quotes by Will Rogers
#109. I guess there is nothing that will get your mind off everything like golf. I have never been depressed enough to take up the game, but they say you get so sore at yourself you forget to hate your enemies. #Quote by Will Rogers
Sports quotes by Herbert Hainer
#110. It never feels good if you don't reach all of your goals, neither in sport, nor in business nor in your personal life. But the key thing is to never give up, we have taken our learnings from 2014 and developed an exciting and promising strategy for the period up until 2020. #Quote by Herbert Hainer
Sports quotes by Olga Korbut
#111. This ability to conquer oneself is no doubt the most precious of all things sports bestows. #Quote by Olga Korbut
Sports quotes by Bud Grant
#112. First of all the name, and the color purple, I think those two things distinguish the Vikings as much as anything. You go anywhere in the country and say 'Vikings,' they know exactly where you are. You say 'Cardinals,' well, Cardinals who? There are a dozen Cardinals teams in the country in professional and amateur sports. #Quote by Bud Grant
Sports quotes by Stan Albeck
#113. As a player, remember that the bench is not a prison, but an extension of the first group. Concentrate on the quality of your play when you do get into the game. If you play 20 minutes, play the best 20 you can possibly play. #Quote by Stan Albeck
Sports quotes by Emma Watson
#114. When at 15, my girlfriends started dropping out of their beloved sports teams, because they didn't want to appear muscle-y, when at 18, my male friends were unable to express their feelings, I decided that I was a feminist. #Quote by Emma Watson
Sports quotes by Hugh Campbell
#115. It wasn't as easy as you think. It's hard to stay awake that long. #Quote by Hugh Campbell
Sports quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#116. David Epstein, the author of the best book on athletics in recent memory - "The Sports Gene" - wrote to me to say that he thinks I'm being overly generous. He points out that, for years, there used to be an "all-star challenge" on television, in which the best professional athletes from a variety of sports competed in a kind of makeshift decathlon. #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Sports quotes by Hamza Charlemagne
#117. Geeks = Know more about computers than their computer teacher, so everyone comes to them for computer problems.
Nerds = Have no life and only worries about school, no one talks to them.
Jocks = Know a lot about sports but not much else.
Geek's Wife: Completely depend on the geek for tech support. Tend to be pretty good looking.
Nerd's Wife: nonexistent
Jock's Wife: only there for money, most likely having an affair with another jock

See Geeks are the best! #Quote by Hamza Charlemagne
Sports quotes by Stephen Curry
#118. Basketball isn't just a sport. It is an art, one that must be mastered to succeed. #Quote by Stephen Curry
Sports quotes by Jim Bouton
#119. The only member of the team nobody liked was our 6 o'clock sports guy, a fellow named Howard Cosell. "Monday Night Football" was just getting started and Howard was annoyed at having to be on the same news with mere local personalities, whom he would attack on the air. This was a mistake in the case of Roger Grimsby who was a lot sharper and even more devastating than Cosell, in his own way. I remember one night, at the end of his report, Howard went into a sarcastic putdown of Grimsby that lasted for what seemed like two minutes. Finally, when Howard was finished, the camera switched to Grimsby who was sitting there with his eyes closed, snoring. #Quote by Jim Bouton
Sports quotes by Margaret Groos
#120. When I was 15, I had lucky underwear. When that failed, I had a lucky hairdo, then a lucky race number, even lucky race days. After 15 years, I've found the secret to success is hard work. #Quote by Margaret Groos
Sports quotes by Katherine Schwarzenegger
#121. When I was younger, I played sports and went to camp. As I got older, my parents began to instill in us the importance of giving back to the community, especially those places around the world that are less fortunate than my very privileged life growing up in Los Angeles. #Quote by Katherine Schwarzenegger
Sports quotes by Elbert Hubbard

Sports quotes by Joaquin Andujar
#125. That's why I don't talk. Because I talk too much. #Quote by Joaquin Andujar
Sports quotes by Mehcad Brooks
#126. I've played sports pretty much my whole life, and that teaches you how to work with anyone, whether you like that person or you don't, and whether you get along with them or you don't. The circumstances don't matter. Team work is part of life. #Quote by Mehcad Brooks
Sports quotes by Piet Hein
#127. Hint And Suggestion : Admonitory grook addressed to youth
The human spirit sublimates
the impulses it thwarts;
a healthy sex life mitigates
the lust for other sports. #Quote by Piet Hein
Sports quotes by Diana Ross
#128. Either black people end up being the best in sports, or else it's show business. You know, we all got rhythm. #Quote by Diana Ross
Sports quotes by Mitch Albom
#129. I earned a mater's degree in journalism and took the first job offered, as a sports writer. Instead of chasing my own fame, I wrote about famous athletes chasing theirs. #Quote by Mitch Albom
Sports quotes by Faith Dismuke
#130. You used me. You made me feel special then threw me away when you were bored. You took my trust. You broke my trust. You turned people against me. You turned me against myself. #Quote by Faith Dismuke
Sports quotes by Manny Montana
#131. I come from an area where it's mostly, like, football and basketball, those are the sports. So my brother started surfing ... I used to make fun of him for it, and then he challenged me to do it, and I'm a huge competitor, and I did it ,and I got hooked. #Quote by Manny Montana
Sports quotes by Sandy Koufax
#132. Pitching is the art of instilling fear. #Quote by Sandy Koufax
Sports quotes by Morihei Ueshiba
#133. Opponents confront us continually, but actually there is no opponent there. Enter deeply into an attack and neutralize it as you draw that misdirected force into your own sphere. #Quote by Morihei Ueshiba
Sports quotes by Terry Crews
#134. I enjoy sports movies that don't sugarcoat. One thing that irritates me about sports movies is that they're like, 'The magic of the ball,' and 'The magic of the stadium.' It ain't that magical. When you get hit coming across the middle at 25 miles per hour, the magic's over. #Quote by Terry Crews
Sports quotes by Lisa Morton
#135. South Africa is the only place in the Southern hemisphere where Halloween is really catching on. They have a lot of sporting events that have made it more popular there. They have motocross and rave celebrations, and they're embracing it as a youth culture thing. #Quote by Lisa Morton
Sports quotes by Seth Numrich
#136. During my childhood, I played just about every sport imaginable, which became less feasible at Juilliard ... Although I remember our annual dodge-ball game as a highlight. The Juilliard 'Fighting Penguins' are a force to be reckoned with. #Quote by Seth Numrich
Sports quotes by Randeep Hooda
#137. Contrary to the royal and uptight image of polo, I want to bring it to a younger generation. This is a great sport that can have a larger audience and appeal to more people. Sportsmanship is lacking in many other sports that I don't want to name. #Quote by Randeep Hooda
Sports quotes by Mercedes McCambridge

Sports quotes by Tyson Fury
#139. Sometimes emotions can win fights. Sometimes letting your feelings out in a fight can win you the fight. When it means the world to you, it's not just a sports contest - a boxing match for money or belts. #Quote by Tyson Fury
Sports quotes by Philip Sidney
#140. Cupid makes it his sport to pull the warrior's plum. #Quote by Philip Sidney
Sports quotes by Robert Ashley
#141. I don't think there's any heroism anymore. The heroism has to be created out of the medium itself. Going back to the idea of television, all the current heros are sports heros because the medium creates the heros. There's nothing essentially heroic about being a good pitcher. #Quote by Robert Ashley
Sports quotes by Tony La Russa
#142. I have coaching friends, and when we get together, we often talk more about what we're doing to get players' attention than we do about the fascinating X's and O's of our sport. #Quote by Tony La Russa

Sports quotes by Daphne Du Maurier
#146. Seen on her own, the woman was not so remarkable. Tall, angular, aquiline features, with the close-cropped hair which was fashionably called an Eton crop, he seemed to remember, in his mother's day, and about her person the stamp of that particular generation. She would be in her middle sixties, he supposed, the masculine shirt with collar and tie, sports jacket, grey tweed skirt coming to mid-calf. Grey stockings and laced black shoes. He had seen the type on golf courses and at dog shows - invariably showing not sporting breeds but pugs - and if you came across them at a party in somebody's house they were quicker on the draw with a cigarette lighter than he was himself, a mere male, with pocket matches. The general belief that they kept house with a more feminine, fluffy companion was not always true. Frequently they boasted, and adored, a golfing husband. ("Don't Look Now") #Quote by Daphne Du Maurier
Sports quotes by Jennette McCurdy
#147. Oh yeah, I'm definitely a tomboy! I love sports, hate dresses, don't own a single pair of high-heels, am not a fan of makeup, and I'm not afraid to get messy! #Quote by Jennette McCurdy
Sports quotes by Im Dong-Hyun
#148. Archery is not a sport for everyone. The equipment costs a lot, and it is not easy for everyone to find a place to play. It is perhaps similar to golf, but of course there are more golf courses than archery fields. #Quote by Im Dong-Hyun
Sports quotes by Brock Lesnar
#149. I lift weights, but that's not my main focus. I'm a fighter now, and I want to evolve and make myself a well-rounded fighter, so obviously I'm not going to leave any stone unturned, when it comes to submissions, submission defense, striking, knees, leg kicks, and also learning to defend everything. It's not just an offensive sport because you're going to take some punches and you're going to give some punches. You've got to be able to handle both sides of the spectrum. I've brought in a number of highly trained trainers to help me evolve, and I believe we've left no stone unturned. #Quote by Brock Lesnar
Sports quotes by Lou Holtz
#150. It's not my job to motivate players. They bring extraordinary motivation to our program. It's my job not to de-motivate them. #Quote by Lou Holtz

Sports quotes by John Fugelsang
#152. I wasn't any good at sports, but I could name all the presidents by the time I was six. I've always been very interested in politics and in religion. #Quote by John Fugelsang
Sports quotes by Kevin Costner
#153. I think if you want to make a good sports movie, you've got to cut down on the sports. You have to make it about people. You can't try to impress people with your knowledge and the X and O's and all the details and the technicalities. #Quote by Kevin Costner
Sports quotes by Morgan Wootten
#154. You are the real teachers. You have these children when they are at their emotional peaks and lows. That's when they are the most pliable. It doesn't take any intelligence to send a kid home with his head hanging between his knees. But to send him home with his head up every night might show a little coaching. #Quote by Morgan Wootten

Sports quotes by Emma Stone

Sports quotes by Mike Tyson
#164. Everyone in boxing probably makes out well except for the fighter. He's the only one that's on Skid Row most of the time; he's the only one that everybody just leaves when he loses his mind. He sometimes goes insane, he sometimes goes on the bottle, because it's an intensive pressure sport that allows people to just lose it. #Quote by Mike Tyson
Sports quotes by Shigeru Miyamoto

Sports quotes by Josh Hutcherson
#166. I like both athletic girls and girly girls. It depends on their personality. I like girls who can go out and play sports with me and throw the football around, but you don't want a girl who's too much tougher than you. I like brainy girls who can respond to what I'm saying. #Quote by Josh Hutcherson

Sports quotes by Nancy Giles
#170. What must it be like to live in Rush Limbaughs world? A world where when anyone other than conservative, white men attempts to do anything or enter any profession, be it business, politics, art or sports, the only reason theyre allowed entry or, incredibly, attain excellence is because the standard was lowered. Be they liberals, people of color, women, the poor or anyone with an accent ... Edgy, controversial, brilliant. What a way to shake up intelligent sports commentary. Hitler would have killed in talk radio. He was edgy, too. #Quote by Nancy Giles
Sports quotes by Bill Brandt
#171. Photographers should follow their own judgment, and not the fads and dictates of others. Photography is still a very new medium and everything is allowed and everything should be tried and dared ... Photography has no rules. It is not a sport. It is the result which counts, no matter how it was achieved. #Quote by Bill Brandt
Sports quotes by Ian Millar
#172. My first Olympics was Munich in 1972. I am better now than I was then, in knowledge and experience. The age of top riders generally tends to be older than in other sports because it takes a lot of time to be consistent. #Quote by Ian Millar
Sports quotes by Allen Iverson
#173. We got to stop people. We go ahead and we score 100 points every night, but we give up more. Our whole thing was, we know we can score, and we have to start having some kind of fun on the defensive end. Everybody want to play offense. Not too many people want to play defense. Defense is ego, pride, and that's the way we've been coming out, just taking the challenge. Man-on-man first, and having each other's back when a guy gets beat. #Quote by Allen Iverson
Sports quotes by Taya Kyle
#174. Before Chris passed away, I'd volunteered to coach Angel's soccer team in our local recreational league. It was a commitment I vowed to keep. I was determined to show those little girls how to succeed on the soccer "pitch," as the field is sometimes called.
I may have gone a little overboard. I mean, how many six-year-old girls have the misfortune of being coached by the wife of a SEAL?
Day One:
"We start by running!" I shouted enthusiastically. "Everyone run around the park. Let's go."
"The soccer field, Mrs. Kyle?" asked a player.
"No! The entire complex. Come on!"
I'm guessing it was maybe five or six times as far as they'd ever run before--or maybe ten or twenty--and a good deal farther than many teams with considerably older players ran. But the girls were good sports about it. We built endurance and worked on drills, and we had fun--you never knew when the coach might grab one the of the players and twirl her around enthusiastically for doing a good job.
"I'm taking goal," I'd say when shooting practice wasn't going well. "Anyone who can hurt me gets an extra piece of candy!"
I gave out a lot of candy that afternoon.
We were a young team and a little rough at first, but we got better as we went. It was fun to watch the transition many of the girls made over the length of the season--they not only got in better shape and learned to play soccer better, but they seemed more confident as well.
I will guarantee one thing: th #Quote by Taya Kyle
Sports quotes by Mario Lemieux
#175. My body's feeling it a little bit. But one good thing, my back is in good shape, and that's my main concern. I know that my legs are going to take awhile to get back to where I was a few years ago, but as long as my back is solid, I feel that I can play many years. #Quote by Mario Lemieux
Sports quotes by Michael Jordan
#176. I have failed many times, and that's why I am a success. #Quote by Michael Jordan
Sports quotes by Mindy Kaling
#177. Once, while living in New York City in the early 2000s, I was asked to leave a sports bar because the Yankees were playing my hometown Red Sox on TV and I lost my cool at a guy who was loudly dissing them. I yelled, "Derek Jeter is baseball's Hitler! #Quote by Mindy Kaling
Sports quotes by Brandi Chastain
#178. I went to professional men's soccer games, the old North American soccer league at that time, and I used to be a ticket holder with my family and family friends. We would go every weekend and I thought it was great, but I just thought of it as recreation, as family fun. #Quote by Brandi Chastain
Sports quotes by Meb Keflezighi
#179. I am excited to be part of Generation UCAN. I believe this product, its team and the company's vision will change the face of sports nutrition. Since I've been using Generation UCAN for my workouts, I've noticed improvements in both my performance and metabolic state. I recommend all runners try it to experience the benefits firsthand. #Quote by Meb Keflezighi

Sports quotes by Vic Bubas
#183. I don't believe the old statement, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." If that were the case, then Cadillacs and Jaguars and Mercedes would never make a change. I've always looked for ways to make things better. #Quote by Vic Bubas
Sports quotes by Charlie Rose
#184. Most people have a concentration in particular areas; it might be politics, it might be science, it might be business, it might be sports. I care about all of those, and that's why I've chosen the formats I chose. #Quote by Charlie Rose
Sports quotes by Jesse Owens
#185. In the end, it's extra effort that separates a winner from second place. But winning takes a lot more that that, too. It starts with complete command of the fundamentals. Then it takes desire, determination, discipline, and self-sacrifice. And finally, it takes a great deal of love, fairness and respect for your fellow man. Put all these together, and even if you don't win, how can you lose? #Quote by Jesse Owens
Sports quotes by Rabih Alameddine
#186. A player should be disparaged if he gives less than his all, if he doesn't give 100%, no matter what shirt he's wearing. Whether it's your national team, your club, or little league. Yes, there are friendly matches, recreational ones, and so on, but sport in its essence is about giving your best. #Quote by Rabih Alameddine
Sports quotes by Rafael Palmeiro

Sports quotes by Michael Wilbon
#189. Football can stand parity better than any of the other sports, I think. Baseball, basketball and hockey need a defining team, in essence to frame the season. Football? Not so much. #Quote by Michael Wilbon

Sports quotes by Mike Ditka
#191. Not really, and actually my cholesterol was 190 when I had the heart attack. 190, which isn't that high. I took it down to about 130 and it's probably about 140 or 145 now. #Quote by Mike Ditka

Sports quotes by Laila Ali
#196. The wrestling, even though I would only wrestle for 15 or 20 or 30 minutes at a time, and it would look like that was the only time I was in it, was really a 24-hour job. Keeping yourself alive, reinventing yourself, staying physically in shape, the traveling, all the other commitments with being a wrestler, it was a crossover situation where it became sports entertainment and you actually became a media star, so it was very demanding. #Quote by Laila Ali
Sports quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#197. All classes in proportion to their lack of travel and familiarity with foreign literature are bellicose, prejudiced against foreigners, fond of fighting as a cruel sport
in short, dog-like in their notions of foreign policy.

Sports quotes by Steffi Graf
#198. You can have a certain arrogance, and I think that's fine, but what you should never lose is the respect for the others. #Quote by Steffi Graf

#199. Boxing is a sport. We allow each other to hit each other, but I'm not treating my opponent like my enemy. We're doing a job to entertain people. #Quote by Manny Pacquiao
