Quotes, quotes and more quotes... Give us your best!

  • I noticed posters adding quotes to another thread. I thought it made sense for us to create a thread specifically for posting your best quotes. This thread should have a permanent place on Featured Content because it is always great to read new quote additions. I have an old suitcase in the attic stuffed with great quotes I’ve picked up over the years, from following public personalities to catching an earful from my direct mentors.

    I’ll start it off with one of my favorites, from one of the greats who inspired me to continue my efforts in sports:

    “Talent is God-given. Be humble. Fame is man-given. Be grateful. Conceit is self-given. Be careful.” - John Wooden

  • “There’s many a slip, twixt the cup of the lip.”

    Old Mother Jaybird

  • That Wooden quote is one of my favs also.

  • @drgnslayr-Hey, did you notice that Oakvillejhawk has finally bitten the bullet & started re-posting on kusports again? Today’s the first time all week I looked at their copy, & lo & behold, the old dog’s back, as of Wed of this week. He alone is worth reading the posts on the LJW again. Witty, informative poster JMO. Maybe he’ll join us in the days to come.

  • "Coach was drinking a soda on the sideline. I was like, ‘What’s he doing?’…I was just coming out, and he was in my way. ‘Coach, get out of my way, bro.’ "

    Tyshawn Taylor

  • " What the (#& do you mean KU’s not on TV??? We’re the number 2 ranked team in the (&#ing nation #&%@**!! Who in the (%% wants to watch Memphis and Siena ?? "

    My brother-in-law.

  • (Why I prefer upperclassmen to OAD’s)

    “Wisdom is always an overmatch for strength.” Phil Jackson

  • “The bottom dollar always comes out on top.”

    I guess I’ll take credit for this one. I used it talking about the NBA… and it should be stamped on their trophy.

  • William Allen White, circa 1912:

    “Neither Jayhawker winds, nor Jayhawker drought Stops the Jayhawker’s heart, nor the Jayhawker’s mouth; For the Jayhawker’s faith is always first rate, He has Jayhawker’s pride in his Jayhawker state!”

    Amelia Earhart:

    "Adventure is worthwhile in itself. "

    Dwight D. Eisenhower:

    "When you put on a uniform, there are certain inhibitions that you accept. "

    Paul Pierce:

    “I worked at a hospital for a week. And at a golf course when I was in college at Kansas for about a week. The tips weren’t good so I quit.”
