“The Cost of Regret FAR EXCEEDS the Price of Discipline” -Peter Lowe

“I think people confuse punishment with discipline," he said, echoing statements he had made in the past. “Discipline is about changing behavior.” –Nick Saban

“The only way we are going to change behavior is to affect things that are important to people.” –Nick Saban

“Discipline is the refining fire by which talent becomes ability.” -Roy L. Smith

“Kids will be satisfied with what you tolerate.” –Bob Knight

“For every disciplined effort there is a multiple reward.” -Jim Rohn

“Discipline is that great quality few people use that enables them to be constructively busy all the time. Even in discouragement and defeat, discipline will rescue you and usher you to a new place to keep constructively busy while you forget about doubt, worry and self-pity.” –Charlie T. Jones

"No horse gets anywhere until he is harnessed.
No steam or gas ever drives anything until it is confined.
No Niagara is every turned into light and power until it is tunneled.
No life ever grows great until it is focused, dedicated, disciplined."
     -Henry Emerson Fosdick

"The only competition you will ever have is the competition between your disciplined and undisciplined mind." -James A. Ray
“It is the common experience of mankind that in moments of great excitement the conscious mental processes of the brain no longer operate. All actions are subconscious, the result of habits." –George S. Patton

"The purpose of discipline and training are first to insure obedience and orderly movement. Second, to produce synthetic courage. Third, to provide methods of combat. Fourth, to prevent or delay the breakdown of the first three due to the excitement of the battle." –George S. Patton

"All human beings have an innate resistance to obedience. Discipline removes this resistance and, by constant repetition, makes obedience habitual and subconscious." – George S. Patton

"The truth of the matter is that you always know the right thing to do. The hard part is doing it." -General H. Norman Schwarzkopf

"Battle is an orgy of disorder. The sudden change from accustomed order to utter disorder, to chaos, but emphasizes the folly of schooling to precision and obedience where only fierceness and habituated disorder are useful." –George S. Patton

"Discipline, which is but mutual trust and confidence, is the key to all success in peace or war." –George S. Patton

"There is only one kind of discipline: perfect discipline." –George S. Patton

"Discipline must be a habit so ingrained that it is stronger than the excitement of battle." –George S. Patton

“Discipline is getting people to do what they are supposed to do, when they’re supposed to do it, and the way it is supposed to be done. Discipline is not punishment. Discipline is changing someone’s behavior to get him to do what you want him to do.” –Nick Saban

“We must all suffer from one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The difference is discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tons.” –Jim Rohn

"Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work." -Stephen King

"Personally, I am of the opinion that older men of experience, who have smelled the powder and have been wounded, are of more value than mere youthful exuberance, which has not yet been disciplined." –George S. Patton

"Brave, undisciplined men have no chance against the discipline and valor of other men." –George S. Patton

“I think being called a “disciplinarian” is a compliment. I don’t know how anyone can be a successful parent, teacher, coach, manager, entrepreneur, husband, wife, or friend without understanding the role discipline plays in life, and without in some form or another being a good disciplinarian.” –Lou Holtz

“Discipline is the foundation upon which all success is built. Lack of discipline inevitably leads to failure.” –Jim Rohn

“Most people want to avoid pain, and discipline is often painful. But we need to recognize that there are really two kinds of pain when it comes to our daily conduct. There’s the pain of self-discipline and the pain of regret. Many people avoid the pain of self-discipline because it’s the easy thing to do. What they may not realize is that the pain of self-discipline is momentary but the pay-off is long lasting.” -John Maxwell
“Discipline is about more than just punishment. Discipline is the internal structure that supports your organization. Used properly, it can help you maintain order without every having to actually do the unpleasant work or punishing people. It is the basis of leadership. Discipline is the only sure way I now to convince people to believe in themselves.” –Pat Summitt

"When the morning's freshness has been replaced by the weariness of midday, whenthe leg muscles give under the strain, the climb seems endless, and suddenly nothing will go quite as you wish-it is then that you must not hesitate." -Dag Hammarskjold

"I've never known a man worth his salt who in the long run, deep down in his heart, didn't appreciate the grind, the discipline. There is something good in men that really yearns for discipline." –Vince Lombardi

“Discipline has within it the potential for creating future miracles. The best time to set up a new discipline is when the idea is strong. One discipline always leads to another discipline.” –Jim Rohn

“I think as a coach, I can manage discipline and command respect because I have in my hands the one thing players must have and that’s playing time.” –Dean Smith

"Discipline yourself to do the things you need to do when you need to do them, and the day will come when you will be able to do the things you want to do when you want to do them!" -Zig Ziglar
