Winning Isn't the Most Important Thing

Balance, Vol. 14, No. 9, B.J.U

The late Vince Lombardi, former great coach of the Green Bay Packers and the Washington Redskins, is famous for his statement, "Winning isn't the most important thing; it's the only thing!" Shortly before he died, he looked back at the quote and declared, "I wish I'd never said it. I meant the effort. I sure didn't mean for people to crush human values and morality."
