Vegetarian Ideal


Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth
as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.
- Albert Einstein

Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world. - Howard Zinn

COMPASSION

Affirmation of life is the spiritual act by which man ceases to live thoughtlessly and begins to devote himself to his life
with reverence in order to give it true value.

Success according to Vince Lombardi




"The dictionary is the only place that success comes before work."
 
“Football is a great deal like life in that it teaches that work, sacrifice, perseverance, competitive drive, selflessness and respect for authority is the price that each and every one of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile.”

 
“To achieve success, whatever the job we have, we must pay a price.”


“Success is like anything worthwhile. It has a price. You have to pay the price to win and you have to pay the price to get to the point where success is possible. Most important, you must pay the price to stay there.”


“Once you agree upon the price you and your family must pay for success, it enables you to ignore the minor hurts, the opponent’s pressure, and the temporary failures.”


“A man can be as great as he wants to be. If you believe in yourself and have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive, and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile, it can be done.”



“I’ve never known a man worth his salt who, in the long run, deep down in his heart, didn’t appreciate the grind, the discipline. “


“There is something good in men that really yearn for discipline.”

“Mental toughness is many things and rather difficult to explain. Its qualities are sacrifice and self-denial. Also, most importantly, it is combined with a perfectly disciplined will that refuses to give in. It’s a state of mind – you could call it character in action.”


“The good Lord gave you a body that can stand most anything. It’s your mind you have to convince.”


“Once you learn to quit, it becomes a habit.”


“Perfection is not attainable. But if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence.”


“Once you have established the goals you want and the price you’re willing to pay, you can ignore the minor hurts, the opponent’s pressure and the temporary failures.”


“The spirit, the will to win and the will to excel – these are the things that endure and these are the qualities that are so much more important than any of the events that occasion them.”


“There’s only one way to succeed in anything, and that is to give it everything.”


“The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will.”


“If you’ll not settle for anything less than your best, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish in your lives.”


“Leaders are made, they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile.”


“Leadership is based on a spiritual quality --- the power to inspire, the power to inspire others to follow.”

“Leadership rests not only upon ability, not only upon capacity – having the capacity to lead is not enough. The leader must be willing to use it. His leadership is then based on truth and character. There must be truth in the purpose and will power in the character.”


“….I firmly believe that any man’s finest hours – his greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear – is that moment when he has worked his heart out in good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious.”

“The spirit, the will to win and the will to excel --- these are the things what will endure and these are the qualities that are so much more important than any of the events themselves.”


“They call it coaching but it is teaching. You do not just tell them…you show them the reasons.”

“After all the cheers have died down and the stadium is empty, after the headlines have been written, and after you are back in the quiet of your room and the championship ring has been placed on the dresser and after all the pomp and fanfare have faded, the enduring thing that is left is the dedication to doing with our lives the very best we can to make the world a better place in which to live.”




Mental Toughness

“If you’re lucky enough to find a guy with a lot of head and a lot of heart, he’s never going to come off the field second.”

“Teams do not go physically flat, they go mentally stale.”

“Mental toughness is many things and rather difficult to explain. Its qualities are sacrifice and self-denial. Also, most importantly, it is combined with a perfectly disciplined will that refuses to give in. It’s a state of mind – you could call it ‘character in action.’”

“Mental toughness is essential to success.”




Habit

“Winning is a habit. Watch your thoughts, they become your beliefs. Watch your beliefs, they become your words. Watch your words, they become your actions. Watch your actions, they become your habits. Watch your habits, they become your character.”

“The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender.”

“Confidence is contagious and so is lack of confidence, and a customer will recognize both.”

“If you don’t think you’re a winner, you don’t belong here.”







Passion

“It is and has always been an American zeal to be first in everything we do, and to win…”

“It is essential to understand that battles are primarily won in the hearts of men. Men respond to leadership in a most remarkable way and once you have won his heart, he will follow you anywhere.”

“If you aren’t fired with enthusiasm, you’ll be fired with enthusiasm.”

“To be successful, a man must exert an effective influence upon his brothers and upon his associates, and the degree in which he accomplishes this depends on the personality of the man. The incandescence of which he is capable. The flame of fire that burns inside of him. The magnetism which draws the heart of other men to him.”




Results/Winning

“Some of us will do our jobs well and some will not, but we will all be judged on one thing: the result.”

“Winning is not everything – but making the effort to win is.”

“Success demands singleness of purpose.”

“If it doesn’t matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?”

“Winning is not a sometime thing…it’s an all the time thing. You don’t win once in a while…you don’t do the right thing once in a while…you do them right all the time. Winning is a habit.”


“The object is to win fairly, by the rules – but to win.”


“Morally, the life of the organization must be of exemplary nature. This is one phase where the organization must not have criticism.”
