John Wooden Quotes

All of life is peaks and valleys.  Don’t let the peaks get too high and the valleys too low.

Talent is God-given.  Be humble.  Fame is man-given.  Be grateful.  Conceit is self-given.  Be careful.

      • No, I didn’t know that. My husband met John Wooden back in the late 60’s when the UCLA basketball team was practicing … and Lou Alcindor was shooting free throws. Memorable indeed! They won the championship undefeated for the 6th year in a row! But, that was all we knew about Wooden, who had a highly revered reputation.
