“Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence”
― Vince Lombardi
“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michaelangelo 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.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.
“If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have the time to do it over?”
― John Wooden
“Excellence is to do a common thing in an uncommon way.”
― Booker T. Washington
