Lou Holtz Quotes

Few men have been as eloquent with words in and out of the locker room as Lou Holtz. Here's a selection of some of the wise remarks the old ball coach has lent our ears over the years:

A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.

Don't be a spectator, don't let life pass you by.

How you respond to the challenge in the second half will determine what you become after the game, whether you are a winner or a loser.

I think everyone should experience defeat at least once during their career. You learn a lot from it.

If he's got golf clubs in his truck or a camper in his driveway, I don't hire him.

If what you did yesterday seems big, you haven't done anything today.

If you burn your neighbors house down, it doesn't make your house look any better.

If you're bored with life - you don't get up every morning with a burning desire to do things - you don't have enough goals.

Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.

On this team, we're all united in a common goal: to keep my job.

The man who complains about the way the ball bounces is likely the one who dropped it.

The problem with having a sense of humor is often that people you use it on aren't in a very good mood.

When all is said and done, more is said than done.
