Vince Lombardi Motivational Quotations:

  • “Individual commitment to a group effort - that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.”

  •  “The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.”

  •  “Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.”

  •  “Football is like life - it requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication and respect for authority.”

  •  “Winners never quit and quitters never win.”

  •  “The achievements of an organization are the results of the combined effort of each individual.”

  •  “Practice does not make perfect. Only perfect practice makes perfect.”

  •  “The greatest accomplishment is not in never falling, but in rising again after you fall.”

  •  “Show me a good loser, and I'll show you a loser.”

  •  “People who work together will win, whether it be against complex football defenses, or the problems of modern society.”

  •  “I firmly believe that any man's finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle - victorious.”

  •  “Winning is not a sometime thing; it's an all the time thing. You don't win once in a while... you don't do things right once in a while... you do them right all the time. Winning is habit.”

  •  “The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.”

  •  “The quality of a person's life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor.”

  •  “Mental toughness is spartanism with qualities of sacrifice, self-denial, dedication. It is fearlessness, and it is love.”

  •  “Football is a great deal like life in that it teaches that work, sacrifice, perseverance, competitive drive, selflessness and respect for authority is the price that each and every one of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile.”

  •  “Winning isn't everything, it's the only thing.”

  •  “We would accomplish many more things if we did not think of them as impossible.”

  •  “A school without football is in danger of deteriorating into a medieval study hall.”

  •  “The difference between men is in energy, in the strong will, in the settled purpose and in the invincible determination.”

  •  “Once you learn to quit, it becomes a habit.”

  •  “We didn't lose the game; we just ran out of time.”

  •  “If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?”

  •  “The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender.”

  •  “It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you got to have is faith and discipline when you're not a winner.”

  •  “Character is just another word for having a perfectly disciplined and educated will. A person can make his own character by blending these elements with an intense desire to achieve excellence. Everyone is different in what I will call magnitude, but the capacity to achieve character is still the same.”

    Vince Lombardi

  •  “Teamwork is what the Green Bay Packers were all about. They didn't do it for individual glory. They did it because they loved one another.”

  •  “There is no room for second place. There is only one place in my game and that is first place. I have finished second twice in my time at Green Bay and I never want to finish second again.”

  •  “There is something good in men that really yearn for discipline.”

  •  “Some of us will do our jobs well and some will not, but we will be judged by only one thing-the result.”

    Vince Lombardi


  • “Once you agree upon the price you and your family must pay for success, it enables you to ignore the minor hurts, the opponent's pressure, and the temporary failures.”

  •  “Leaders are made, they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile.”

  •  “I have finished second twice in my time at Green Bay, and I don't ever want to finish second again. There is a second place bowl game, but it is a game for losers played by losers. It is and always has been an American zeal to be first in anything we do, and to win, and to win, and to win.”

  •  “If you can accept losing, you can't win.”

  •  “If you're lucky enough to find a guy with a lot of head and a lot of heart, he's never going to come off the field second.”

  •  “I'll put the Packers' best players on defense. It's best for a team and good for its morale.”

  •  “I've never been with a losing team in my life, and I don't think I'll start now.”

  •  “A disciplined person is one who follows the will of the one who gives the orders.”

  •  “Some people try to find things in this game that don't exist but football is only two things - blocking and tackling.”

  •  “I don't think there's a punch-line scheduled, is there?”

  •  “They'd better be physically tough when they start pulling on their football pants.”
