John Wooden — American Coach born on October 14, 1910, died on June 04, 2010

John Robert Wooden was an American basketball player and coach. Nicknamed the "Wizard of Westwood," as head coach at UCLA he won ten NCAA national championships in a 12-year period, including an unprecedented seven in a row. Within this period, his teams won a men's basketball-record 88 consecutive games. Wooden's streak of seven consecutive NCAA Championships is even more remarkable and impressive because to this day no other coach or school has won the tournament more than two consecutive years...

Whatever you do in life, surround yourself with smart people who'll argue with you.
Be true to yourself, help others, make each day your masterpiece, make friendship a fine art, drink deeply from good books - especially the Bible, build a shelter against a rainy day, give thanks for your blessings and pray for guidance every day.
Talent is God given. Be humble. Fame is man-given. Be grateful. Conceit is self-given. Be careful.
If you're not making mistakes, then you're not doing anything. I'm positive that a doer makes mistakes.
There are many things that are essential to arriving at true peace of mind, and one of the most important is faith, which cannot be acquired without prayer.
