"More enduringly than any other sport, wrestling teaches self-control and pride. Some have wrestled without great skill - none have wrestled without pride."
- Dan Gable
On hard work:
“The dictionary is the only place that success comes before work. Work is the key to success, and hard work can help you accomplish anything.”

- Thomas Jefferson
“It's hard to beat a person who never gives up.”

"Repeated actions are stored as habits. If the repeated actions aren't fundamentally sound, then what comes out in a game (match) can't be sound. What comes out will be bad habits."
- Chuck Knox
"Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall."
