There are no losers in wrestling

Only winners and learners


The reward isn’t as good without the struggle


Wrestling is like fighting a gorilla

You don’t quit when you are tired, you quit when the gorilla is tired


Failure is part of success

But failure will never stand in the way of success if you learn from it
