Phyllis McGinley Quote

Phyllis McGinley

"Who could deny that privacy is a jewel? It has always been the mark of privilege, the distinguishing feature of a truly urbane culture. Out of the cave, the tribal teepee, the pueblo, the community fortress, man emerged to build himself a house of his own with a shelter in it for himself and his diversions. Every age has seen it so. The poor might have to huddle together in cities for need's sake, and the frontiersman cling to his neighbors for the sake of protection. But in each civilization, as it advanced, those who could afford it chose the luxury of a withdrawing-place." Phyllis McGinley

"If you are not fired with enthusiasm, you will be fired with enthusiasm."

Arguably one of the greatest football coaches in history, Vince Lombardi served as head coach and general manager of the Green Bay Packers during the 1960's. He was known for his passion for discipline and execution, which led the Packers to five NFL Championships and two Super Bowl wins. His post season record was an astounding 9 and 1, his only loss coming in 1960. He later served as coach, general manager and part owner of the Washington Redskins, which had its first winning season in 14 years under his command. The National Football League's Super Bowl Trophy is named in his honor.
