“What makes the temptation of power so seemingly irresistible? Maybe it is that power offers an easy substitute for the hard task of love. It seems easier to be God, than to love God, easier to control people than to love people, easier to own life than to love life.” – Henri J.M. Nouwen
John Wooden has given us an abundance of great quotes. This one reminds us to keep ourselves grounded.
Talent is God-given: be humble.
Fame is man-given: be thankful.
Conceit is self-given: be careful.
