"Some people want it to happen, some people wish it would happen, some people make it happen."
"I've missed more then 9000 shots in my careers. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, i've been thrusted to take the game wining shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that's why i succeeded."
