A man can seldom — very, very, seldom — fight a winning fight against his training; the odds are too heavy.

I hated every minute of training, but I said, ''Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.''

I succeed on my own personal motivation, dedication, and commitment?. My mindset is: If I'm not out there training, someone else is.

I swam my brains out.

I'm like a duck: calm above the water, and paddling like hell underneath.

I've never known a man worth his salt who in the long run, deep down in his heart, didn't appreciate the grind, the discipline… I firmly believe that any man's finest hour-this greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear–is the moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle — victorious.

It's all to do with the training: you can do a lot if you're properly trained.

My God given talent is my ability to stick with training longer than anybody else.

Nothing good comes in life or athletics unless a lot of hard work has preceded the effort. Only temporary success is achieved by taking short cuts.

People say I'm around because I have a lot of heart, but I know all the heart in the world couldn't have helped me if I wasn't physically fit.

Reading maketh a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man.

The best training any parent can give a child is to train the child to train himself.

The more I train the more I realize I have more speed in me.

The truth is that most busy people cannot sustain a seven-day-a-week training schedule. There are too many other stresses and responsibilities in their lives.

Train everyone lavishly, you can't overspend on training.

Training gives us an outlet for suppressed energies created by stress and thus tone the spirit just as exercise conditions the body.

Training is all-encompassing and should be related to everything a unit does, or can have happen to it.

Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing, but cabbage with a college education.

We have learned to live in a world of mistakes and defective products as if they were necessary to life. It is time to adopt a new philosophy in America.

We trained hard, but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams, we would be reorganized. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing; and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralization.
