This has to be a true, because physical abilities are relatively equal at the top of professional sports." -Bill Russell

“To succeed, you absolutely need to gain more knowledge in your selected field. How do you go about doing that? One of the most fruitful ways is from the living lessons role models provide.

Observe their methods. Study their behavior.” -Mike Shanahan

“When we go into action and confront our adversaries, we must be as armed with knowledge as they.” –Dr. Martin Luther King
