“Win or lose, we will be humble and gracious, no matter what happens. Fortunately, winning is never forever, neither is defeat.”

“Win or lose, we will be humble and gracious, no matter what happens,” he said, and we wrote. “One of the glories of sport is that there is always a winner and a loser. Fortunately, winning is never forever, but neither is defeat.”

inspiring words by former All-Black rugby captain, Sir Wilson Whineray (on the weekend of the Rugby World Cup final, in October 2011 and exactly a year before his death)

    “If a man is called to be a street-sweeper,
    he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted,
    or Beethoven composed music, or
    Shakespeare wrote poetry.
    He should sweep streets so well
    that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say,
    here lived a great street sweeper
    who did his job well.”
    – Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.

    I was just seeking this information for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your web site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this type of informative websites in top of the list. Normally the top web sites are full of garbage.
