Julius Erving Motivational Quotations:

  • “The key to success is to keep growing in all areas of life - mental, emotional, spiritual, as well as physical.”

  •  “You can feel the vibes, feel the people pulling for you.”

  “If you don't do what's best for your body, you're the one who comes up on the short end.”

Julius Erving

  •  “But you know, if you live an affluent lifestyle, there are all types of trappings that are there that you have to be cognizant of, and you've got to try and communicate freely and gain understanding about and then keep moving on, because you know, sometimes lifestyles are chosen for us as opposed to us choosing them.”

  •  “But you know, we have a very normal family. We've had our ups and downs. You know, we've had our issues, but we've had great cause for celebration.”

  •  “That was just my own personal program: I didn't want to get too high over the good moments because I didn't want to be saddened and depressed when things didn't go as I had planned.”

  •  “Right up until the time I retired at age 37, I felt like there were still things that I could do better.”

  •  “Every team that I've played on, I've either been the captain or co-captain.”

  •  “In 1981, at age 31, I was voted the best player in basketball, and the most valuable player in the league.”
