Dan Gable Quotes

Once you’ve wrestled, everything else in life is easy.

Dan Gable

The obvious goals were there- State Champion, NCAA Champion, Olympic Champion. To get there I had to set an everyday goal which was to push myself to exhaustion or, in other words, to work so hard in practice that someone would have to carry me off the mat.
Dan Gable

When you finally decide how successful you really want to be, you’ve got to set priorities. Then, each and every day, you’ve got to take care of the top ones. The lower ones may fall behind, but you can’t let the top ones slip. You don’t forget about the lower ones though because they can add up to hurt you. Just take care of the top ones first. In 25 years as a head coach and assistant, I think I might have missed one practice. Why? Because practice is my top priority. A day doesn’t go by when I don’t accomplish something in my family life or my profession because those two things are my top priorities.
Dan Gable

Dan Gable Quotes on Wrestling

Dan Gable

Gold medals aren’t really made of gold. They’re made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.

Wrestling is the only sport I’ve ever competed in that puts you totally in a situation of constant motion without breaks. I could play football or baseball, swim — but there’s always some kind of situation that would break my thoughts, break my concentration.
Dan Gable

The 1st period is won by the best technician. The 2nd period is won by the kid in the best shape. The 3rd period is won by the kid with the biggest heart.
Dan Gable

Rulon Gardner Quotes on Wrestling

When you’re in school growing up, you have teachers who sit and read to these kids, and what better opportunity to sit and read a story — one that’s not fake. It’s not a dreaming story. It’s not Harry Potter. It’s a real-life story, with glorious moments to horrific moments, including the frostbite — and what better way to show kids their potential than with a real-life story?
Rulon Gardner

There is enough reality in my life so I try not to read things that have too much stress.

John Cena Quotes on Wrestling

My favorite thing about Saturday Night’s Main Event, it was that one time where I could stay up late with my dad and four brothers, and we would all beat the tar out of each other while the show was on, and it was all okay because my dad was a wrestling fan.
John Cena

I don’t doll myself up for TV because I want people to accept me for who I am.
John Cena

I’m the one person who wears the words “hustle, loyalty, respect” on my T-shirts and merchandise. My audience is children. It’s very flattering to see a kid wear your T-shirt; it’s even more flattering to have a dad come up to you and say, “I watch you with my kid. Keep doing what you’re doing. You’re a role model for my son.”
John Cena

By the time I was 15 and I stepped in the high school gym, I was just stronger than everybody.

A lot of the stuff that I say doesn’t even make TV because it gets cut out. So if you’re at the live events you get to hear what I have to say, but if you’re watching on TV, you’re only getting about 50% of it.
John Cena

I’m not trying to brainwash my critics. If they’re critics, they’re critics, and that’s their job to be critical, but I certainly enjoy the involvement I have with my fans. I enjoy the time I get to spend with them, and I don’t waste time with someone stubborn who is not going to come around.
John Cena
