WISE WORDS FROM A WESTERN WRITER

A little bit off the beaten path.  Coach Bob Knight in his book, "Knight: My Story" said that he great enjoyed reading Louis L'Amour.  Then I was rereading some notes from a PGC/Glazier Clinic a few years ago, and going over things I'd written down while listening to Dean Lockwood speak and he had quoted L'Amour so I did a little checking and came up with a list of wise words from the author.

"A wise man fights to win, but he is twice a fool who has no plan for possible defeat."

"Victory is won not in miles but in inches. Win a little now, hold your ground, and later, win a little more."

"There will come a time when you believe everything is finished. Yet that will be the beginning."

"Knowledge is like money: to be of value it must circulate, and in circulating it can increase in quantity and, hopefully, in value."

"To disbelieve is easy; to scoff is simple; to have faith is harder."

"Nobody got anywhere in the world by simply being content."

"No one can get an education, for of necessity education is a continuing process."

"The water doesn't run until the faucet is on."
