A memorable quote

I have many sweet memories attached to this quotation, from my later school days (it was this quote that was largely responsible- apart from my undoubtedly sheer and sincere hard work- for my stupendous ranks and scores in all of the engineering entrance exams that I gave). Even today it energizes me as much as it used to back then. I hope it continues to serve as my source of energy forever.

"Life's battles do not always go
to the stronger or the faster man,
but sooner or later the man who wins,
is the man who thinks he can."

-- Vince Lombardi

I'm aware that the above quote is slightly different from what was actually quoted by Vince Lombardi, but it's the above words which are close to me, and hence I always sing only them.

  1. Update (15-Nov-10): As visible on this page, the above quote is by Vince Lombardi. However, as visible on this page, the quote is by Walter D. Wintle. I'm not sure who's wrong here...
