This post will be unlike any other one I've written.  This is because basketball practice starts Monday, and I am fired up.  I have spent a considerable amount of time searching for inspirational quotes for the team.  I will share one quote a day with them in hopes to motivate them.  Now, I understand they are high school boys and may not care, but I hope they will.  Some of the quotes I know who to give credit to for them, however, some of them are unknown or I have thought them up.  I let you guess on the ones that are mine.  As I have searched these quotes, I thought some of them would be beneficial for everyone.  These are quotes that aren't just centered towards athletes, but rather to people who strive to be better.  I want to share some of these with you. I hope you enjoy.

If it doesn't challenge you, it won't change you.

Never let good enough be good enough.
