Brett Favre Quotes

Brett Lorenzo Favre

Brett Favre quotes: former Green Bay quarterback throws us the following words of wisdom.

“You have to believe you’re great.  You have to have an air about you.  My success wasn’t because I was a great talent, but because I wanted it more than anybody else.  Every minute I step on that field, I want to prove I’m the best player in the league.”

“You’re never guaranteed about next year.  People ask what you think of next season, you have to seize the opportunities when they’re in front of you.”

“Don’t ever look back and regret not doing your best.”

“Obviously talent gets you to a certain point, but it’s what you do with it, how you handle.”

“Life deals you a lot of lessons, some people learn from it, some people don’t.”

“Every day is not perfect.  You have your bad days and good days just like anyone else.”

“I consider adversity being good sometimes.”

“I think people have all faced decisions at times where you never know.”

“Don’t cheat yourself.  Don’t cheat your teammates.  Work as hard as you possibly can.  Lay it all on the line and whatever happens, happens.”

“Treating everyone as an equal and with respect is not only important but essential.”

“After my first year – I had a lot of success, took everybody by storm – came back the next year, thought it was easy and didn’t have near the season I had the previous year.  It was kind of a wake-up call.  And so, life goes on.”

“Just, you never know what the next day is going to bring.  That goes for football, goes for off the field, and I gave up a long time ago trying to predict the future and trying to deal with things I couldn’t deal with.”

“I don’t really care what’s going on.  I just care about getting my job done the best that I can possibly do and deal with the other things in my life that take a lot of time and a lot of thought.”

“There are those people who are in your corner no matter what, you can’t do any wrong, even when you do wrong.  And then there are those people that no matter what you do they are going to dislike you and that’s not going to change.”

“You have to learn to deal with fame.  It can be a difficult process.  What I’ve discovered is lack of privacy sometimes comes with the job.”

“Sometimes you get caught up in what’s going on around you.  The reality is that you are just a regular person.  At some point, the career will be over, the bright lights turn off.  That can come back to haunt you if you’re not just a regular guy.”

“I’d like to think, eight years ago, I was pretty humble and modest.  But I think, with each year, you get more modest, more humble, more appreciative.  The off-the-field tragedies put things in better perspective, but life happens to everybody, and I think we all just try to do the best we can.”

“That’s kind of how I approach life and football; why dwell on something that hasn’t happened?”

“As you get older, you look at things differently.”

“I’ve always shown up, always been prepared.  Everything I do comes back to the example I want to set.”

“Most talented players don’t always succeed.  Some don’t even make the team.  It’s more what’s inside.”

“I accomplished so many things, so early in my career.”

“Every game I’ve ever played, regardless if it was pre-season or Super Bowl, meant the same to me, and I laid it all on the line.”

“I have never thrown an interception that’s been my fault… according to my mother-in-law.”

“I think every player should think that he’s a difference-maker.”

“It’s all about chemistry.  Talent alone won’t get it done.”

“What makes me most proud is how I played the game.  Being real, authentic and spontaneous, and loving the game, to me, was what it was all about.  I couldn’t believe that they paid us and that I was racking up statistics like I was.  I was just having fun.  And I’m most proud of that.”

“There was never one time where I didn’t give it all I could.”

“You’re only as good as your last pass.”

“Well family is obviously the most important.  There was a time when I thought football was the most important.”

“But when you lose a family member or something tragic happens, that stays with you forever.  You never get over it.  Knowing that you have to deal with that for the rest of your life.”

“I overheard my father talking to three other coaches: ‘I assure you one thing about my son, he will play better.  He will redeem himself.  I know my son.  He has it in him.’  I spent the rest of my career trying to redeem myself and make him proud.  I hope I succeeded.”

“So never discount the importance of being a father, and the statements you make.  Whether you think your kids hear… you’re very important to your children.  The lesson is: we come and go very quickly.  So love them each and every day.”

“I’m thankful for all the things that this job has given me and my family.  But probably the thing that I am most proud of throughout my career is that, not only myself, but my family and the people around me have just been regular people, which we are.”

“Make no mistake about it: I will be remembered as a Packer.  I’ve always been a Packer, always will be a Packer.”

“I’ve been pretty fortunate.”

“It’s been a wonderful career, I couldn’t ask for anything more.”
