John Wooden personified class as a coach and a human being. Although I rooted against the Bruins with a passion in those days, looking back it was incredible what Wooden did with superstar centers and the role players that surrounded them. RIP to a class act.

Here's a couple John Wooden quotes that apply to a certain Steeler quarterback

Adversity is the state in which man most easily becomes acquainted with himself, being especially free of admirers then.

Talent is God given. Be humble. Fame is man-given. Be grateful. Conceit is self-given. Be careful.

One of my favorites...

If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?

And, I absolutely love this one...

You can't live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.

That one goes along with "Character is doing the right thing when no one is looking."

RIP to one of the good guys.
