Success Quotes


According to Ben Sweetland, “success is a journey, not a destination.” We couldn’t agree more. If you’re looking for success quotes that capture your imagination and the very essence of what success is, then this is the destination you’ve been looking for. We all know success when we see it. But how do we define it? Success isn’t necessarily measured by money or fame, so what is it really? Well, that’s one of the reasons for success quotes – they help us see the measure of success on terms that we can all understand. Reference.com Definition of Success

Birth: 1913-06-11 Death: 1970-09-03

"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.
