To Student Athletes in My Classes [Quote – 423]

Published Categorised as Quote-Unquote, Quote-Unquote – Book V (401-500)

Ladies & Gentlemen:

I see no difference between a classroom and a baseball field, or tennis or basketball court or a swimming pool.

Do you? I don’t. To me, they are all the same: places for toiling mightily – and excelling and winning.

If life is a sport, excellence is the name of the game.

And to me excellence is not an abstract idea, it is a concrete plan. It is about winning games and delivering results. It is about beating the odds.

Odds are the “enemy.” Beating them is what life – any sport – is all about.

Beating odds is what you go to college to prepare and get the training and skills for.

END

(Dr. Pasha)
