John Wooden was a real inspirational figure. The guy made his way to the Basketball Hall of Fame twice, once as a player and once as a coach. He won a National Championship as a player and then during his 12-year tenure as Head Coach of the UCLA Bruins, Wooden won an astounding 10 titles. His record as a coach was  664–162. After he moving on from basketball, Wooden became an accomplished author and motivational speaker. Wooden passed away yesterday and since his passing, people have been going crazy trying to track down quotes from this cerebral legend.

Compiled by the MANjr team, here are the Top 10 John Wooden quotes that best commemorate the man’s legacy:

“Be prepared to be honest.”

“Be quick, but don’t hurry.”

Never mistake activity for achievement.”

“Failing to prepare is preparing to fail.”

“Ability is a poor man’s wealth.”

“Flexibility is the key to stability.”

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

The worst thing about new books is that they keep us from reading the old ones.”

“If you’re not making mistakes, then you’re not doing anything. I’m positive that a doer makes mistakes.”

“Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.”
