It isn't what you do, but how you do it.

Nothing will work unless you do.
Don't measure yourself by what you have accomplished, but by what you should have accomplished with your ability.
For an athlete to function properly, he must be intent. There has to be a definite purpose and goal if you are to progress. If you are not intent about what you are doing, you aren't able to resist the temptation to do something else that might be more fun at the moment.
Sports do not build character. They reveal it.
Material possessions, winning scores, and great reputations are meaningless in the eyes of the Lord, because He knows what we really are and that is all that matters.
Success is peace of mind, a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming, and not just in a physical way: seek ye first the kingdom and His righteousness and all these things will be yours as well.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
I'd rather have a lot of talent and a little experience than a lot of experience and a little talent.
It's the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen.
Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.
Failure to prepare is preparing to fail.
Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be.
It's what you learn after you know it all that counts.
Don't mistake activity for achievement.
Never mistake activity for achievement.
You cannot attain and maintain physical condition unless you are morally and mentally conditioned. And it is impossible to be in moral condition unless you are spiritually conditioned. I always told my players that our team condition depended on two factors -- how hard they worked on the floor during practice and how well they behaved between practices.
If you're not making mistakes, then you're not doing anything. I'm positive that a doer makes mistakes.
I always tried to make clear that basketball is not the ultimate. It is of small importance in comparison to the total life we live. There is only one kind of life that truly wins, and that is the one that places faith in the hands of the Savior. Until that is done, we are on an aimless course that runs in circles and goes nowhere.
Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.
It's not so important who starts the game but who finishes it.
Ability may get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there.
