There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all

the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with

people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the

good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones

who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling

down is a part of life, getting back up is living.

Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one

thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the

body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up.

It is always tired morning, noon, and night. But the body is

never tired if the mind is not tired. When you were younger

the mind could make you dance all night, and the body was

never tired... You've always got to make the mind take over

and keep going.

Think of life as a gigantic ice cream parlor with infinite flavors to taste. Tell yourself the goal of life is to taste as many flavors of experiences as you can. Admittedly, you won't like every flavor. But hey, you don't need to go near that flavor ever again. Instead, indulge in flavors you know you're passionate about! And don't be afraid to taste something that might look funny -- you never know!

Karen Salmansohn

Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not quite, the not yet, and the not at all.

It is yours.

Ayn Rand

Strive to increase order and discipline in your life. Discipline usually means doing the opposite of what you feel like doing.

Live like there’s a fire lit under your ass that only action can fuel, feed, allow to grow into a blaze that will engulf the world where your name will roll off the tongue like so few legends that have come before you.

Football in it's purest form is what we strive for as a nation.  People from all different races, religions and backgrounds working together for one shared goal.  The core values taught in football are some of the most important you can learn in life.  To always be there for the guy next to you and not let your fellow man down.  You do whatever it takes to make sure your brother is OK.



Football has afforded me a platform throughout my career to have a greater impact on my humanitarian work.  At this time, I feel drawn to make the larger fight for human rights a priority.  My life's purpose is bigger than football.

I don't believe in winning at all costs, if that means cheating or doing things that are wrong.  But if you think winning is not too important, then you are not willing to pay the price to win.  Take away winning and you take away everything that is strong about America.  If you don't believe in winning, you don't believe in free enterprise, capitalism, our way of life.



Our way of life means succeeding and you must win to do that.  Today in america everything is "let's be free, let's be ourselves." but that eliminates responsibility.  If you have freedom you must have responsibility.   If you have free enterprise - have a country like ours - you've got to win, got to pay the price, got to do the things that make our country progressive.  Once you start moving from that - and that's what we're doing in America today - sooner or later you're going to fail.  You won't remain strong.



This country is organized no differently from a football team.  It's built on discipline, competition and paying the price.  Take away those things and you have chaos, weakness and immorality - all the things that are taking place in America right now.  So winning is important. It's got to be.

booze

Getting drunk is a very nearly sacred experience, a wide-open full throttle thing, a grand celebration of life, a wild charge through the night.  Booze is high-octane fuel and mixing a lot of water with that fuel, as any race car driver will tell you, is a good way to lose the race.

See, when you take your beer in your sweaty hand, you should gaze on its curvaceous shape, glowing glass, tantalizing droplets of water that are a sign of the cooling, refreshing delights that will soon pleasure you. Run your hands down the bottle; perhaps give it a reverent kiss. Then, and only then, should you gently pry the cap from the mouth of your beloved. When you tilt that bottle toward your lips, and prepare to accept that holy communion, you should give thanks that you live in a country that allows the brewing and distilling of the radiant elixir that we call alcohol.

And then you should shoot a quadruple shot of Maker's.

Personally I prefer the buzz between "all is good and well in the universe with this glass" drunk and "IM A FUCKING VIKING!" drunk.

Manhattans are dangerous their deliciousness can allow you to rapidly knock down a full bottle and incapacitate yourself- This, of course, makes them a perfect after work drink.

I hate going from liquor to wine or beer. You rush the cliff & instead of charging over--gloriously--you weave a net to catch your fall.

Never bought into that alcohol is a depressant thing. Booze isn't the darkness. Booze is the bonfire of incalculable joy.

There is no greater glory than the bourbon in your hand. History is in your hand.
