STOP AND THINK – Ability may get you to the top but it takes character to keep you there. (John Wooden, renowned American basketball coach)
Coach Wooden was known, not only for his basketball playing and coaching skills, but also for his teaching and motivational abilities. He reached the pinnacle of success in collegiate coaching, but those who knew him best pay tribute to his character and integrity, which he successfully passed on to generations of young players.
The integrity of the upright guides them. (Proverbs 11:3) May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope, Lord, is in you. (Psalm 25:21)
