I like to start my day with an inspirational quote. Would you like to share one of yours? Please do.

Fitness fanatic Jack Lalanne who died this week once said: "It's better to wear out than to rust out." I love that.

Coach K at Duke once said: "Believe the loose ball you're following has your name on it." That fires me up.

UNC legendary coach Dean Smith made me laugh and think when he said: “If you make every game a life and death proposition, you're going to have problems. For one thing, you'll be dead a lot.”

And who can forget the verbal volcano named Jim Valvano who said: "To me there are three things everyone should do every day. Number one is laugh. Number two is think – spend some time time in thought. Number three, you should have your emotions move you to tears. If you laugh, think and cry, that's a heck of a day.”

Let’s add some great quotes to our list.
