Brees QB

“When you wake up, think about winning the day.  Don’t worry about a week or a month from now – just think about one day at a time.  If you are worried about the mountain in the distance, you might trip over the molehill right in front of you.  Win the day!”

“We’ve got something special going here.  We want to keep it going.  You don’t have many opportunities like this, and the window of opportunity for us is now.”

“Under pressure, would I fold and disappear, or would I show everyone that when bad things happen, you fight?”

“Sometimes all you need is just for somebody to believe in you in order to be able to accomplish maybe what you never thought you could.”

“I know I can go out there and play much better than I did yesterday.  But to come out with a win is key.”

“Anyone can see the adversity in a difficult situation, but it takes a stronger person to see the opportunity.”

“Forget all the doubters.  Forget all the critics.  Is there satisfaction in proving them wrong?  Sure, but I don’t want to give those people the gratification of even dwelling on their words that long.  There’s a motivator much more powerful than doubt.  I play in honor of those who believe in me.”

“We mean well.  Give us the benefit of the doubt once in a while!”

“There’s always a little bit of personal satisfaction when you prove somebody wrong.”

“We just believed in ourselves, and we knew that we had an entire city and maybe an entire country behind us.  What can I say?  I tried to imagine what this moment would be like for a long time, and it’s better than expected.”

“There are a very few consistent, common threads among the most successful NFL quarterbacks.  Most of them are intangibles, which you can’t measure with a physical test.  You need leadership ability, competitiveness, drive, and will.  You need focus, poise, and charisma.”

“I’m a very modest person.  But I’m also extremely confident.  And if you put me in the situation or in the moment, I’m gonna have some swagger, I’m gonna have some cockiness.”

“A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.  A successful woman is one who can find such a man.”

“A word to the wise ain’t necessary – it’s the stupid ones that need the advice.”

“I think the fact is that anybody who goes into politics feels like ‘I can make a difference.’  But it’s not one person, you need so many others.”

“But I’ve found that when you start talking to people, everybody’s family has something they’ve dealt with.  Every family has issues and is a little dysfunctional.  It’s not whether you will have problems within your family; it’s how you handle those difficulties when they come your way.”

“If you are looking for your purpose or calling, you will find it in your pain.”

“God, I know that if you bring me to it, you will bring me through it.  I know you have a plan, but quite honestly I don’t see it right now.  But I know it’s there.  I know I have to believe.  I know I need to have faith.  I have to trust you.  And I do trust you.  But it’s hard right now.”

“I’m just feeling like it was meant to be.  What can I say?  The birth of my son, and in the first year of his life, we won a Super Bowl Championship.”
