In honour of today’s 51st Super Bowl, otherwise known as the “Li Bowl,” I thought I’d switch gears and list some memorable sports quotes from the past. Although they come from athletes and coaches in different sports, one common thread – the resounding message, really –  is this: never give up; never quit; play on until you fall over or else die.

On that note, I present 11 inspirational sports quotations.

“There are only two options regarding commitment. You’re either IN or you’re OUT. There is no such thing as life in-between.” – Pat Riley

“A champion is someone who gets up when he can’t.” – Jack Dempsey
“It ain’t over till it’s over.” – Yogi Berra
“You’re never a loser until you quit trying.” – Mike Ditka
“Never give up! Failure and rejection are only the first step to succeeding.” – Jim Valvano
“You miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take.” – Wayne Gretzky


“The highest compliment that you can pay me is to say that I work hard every day, that I never dog it.” – Wayne Gretzky

“Gold medals aren’t really made of gold. They’re made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.” – Dan Gable

“I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” Michael Jordan
“It’s not whether you get knocked down; it’s whether you get up.” – Vince Lombardi
