Legendary UCLA coach John Wooden passed away over the weekend @ 99 years old. But the wisdom he leaves behind is legendary in it's own right. Maybe some of his words might touch you this morning.

Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.

Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be.

I'd rather have a lot of talent and a little experience than a lot of experience and a little talent.

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 comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.

It's the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen.

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.

Ability may get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there.
