"We all have dreams, but in order to make dreams into reality it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline and effort. These things apply to everyday life. You learn not only the sport, but things like respect of others, ethics in life, how you are going to live, how you treat your fellow man, how you live with your fellow man."
Jesse Owens On the value of sports...
