NFL Poetry: Vince Lombardi's Greatest Quotes, Just In Time For Super Bowl Sunday

"I firmly believe that any man's finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle... victorious."

Vince Lombardi, Green Bay Packers head coach (Brainy Quote)

"The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary."

**********

"If winning isn't everything, why do they keep score?"

**********

"Winning is not a sometime thing; it's an all time thing. You don't win once in a while, you don't do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time.

"Winning is habit. Unfortunately, so is losing."

"Practice does not make perfect. Only perfect practice makes perfect."

**********

Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho'

We are not now that strength which in old days

Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;

One equal temper of heroic hearts,

Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will

To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Lord Alfred Tennyson, 'Ulysses' (Poetry Foundation)
