Following is a selection of quotations I enjoy, some of which are also included in my book.
Three rules to live by:
"You can get everything in life you want, if you help enough other people get
what they want."
"Excellence in this game requires the willingness to perform monotonous
repetitions of fundamental skills."
"Let the nothingness into your swing. (Stroke)."
"If you keep on doing what you have been doing, you will keep on getting what
you have been getting."
"You miss one hundred percent of the shots you never take."
"When I am in this state everything is pure, vividly clear. I’m in a cocoon of
concentration. And if I can put myself into that cocoon, I’m invincible… I’m living
fully in the present."
"Live life in the present moment."
Satori - A state of intuitive enlightenment - where mind and body become one.
"The Zone - A state of relaxed concentration; where mind, body and spirit
flow in harmony. The shooter and the shot become one; the art becomes artless; the
dancer becomes the dance."
"There is a force in the universe that makes things happen. All you have to do is
get in touch with it, stop thinking, let things happen, and be the ball."
"I resolve to speak ill of no man whatever, not even in a matter of truth. But
rather by some means excuse the faults I hear charged upon others and on proper
occasions speak all the good I know of every body."
