“Hard work alone won’t guarantee success, but without hard work, I’ll guarantee you won’t have success.”

“Here’s a simple way to abolish golf’s elitist and exclusionary image and make it a truly all-American sport: ditch that fifties-Republican-martini-drinker’s green Brooks Brothers-style sport jacket and make the winner of the Masters slip on something in, say, black leather with plenty of metal studs.”

 

Bruce McCall

“The biggest problem with dyslexic kids is not the perceptual problem, it is their perception of themselves. That was my biggest problem.”

 

Bruce Jenner

“I spent twelve years training for a career that was over in a week. Joe Namath spent one week training for a career that lasted twelve years.”

 

Bruce Jenner

“If you are dyslexic, your eyes work fine, your brain works fine, but there is a little short circuit in the wire that goes between the eye and the brain. Reading is not a fluid process.”

 

Bruce Jenner

“I was growing up in the 50’s and 60’s. Back then they didn’t even know what dyslexia was.”

 

Bruce Jenner

“We put so much pressure on kids to excel in school at such a young age.”

 

Bruce Jenner

“Nobody has milked one performance better than me – and I’m damned proud of it.”

 

Bruce Jenner

“I was afraid the teacher was going to make me read in front of class and I was going to look bad. [But] if I wasn’t dyslexic, I probably wouldn’t have won the Games. If I had been a better reader, then that would have come easily, sports would have come easily. And I never would have realized that the way you get ahead in life is hard work.”

 

Bruce Jenner

“I was scared to death, but I made fear score points for me. Fear is right behind me, fear is six inches off my back, that’s where fear is. I can feel its presence. But it’s not going to catch me… I’m going to take fear and use it to my advantage.”

 

Bruce Jenner

“I didn’t only have a perceptual problem, I was also so nervous and so upset. The process just didn’t work. I lost enthusiasm for school and I flunked second grade. The teachers said I was lazy.”

 

Bruce Jenner

“Our mission for younger people is to do our best to make exercise cool, hip – the thing to do.”

 

Bruce Jenner

“Waving the flag at the 1976 Olympics wasn’t my idea. It was too much apple pie and ice cream. Not that I don’t love my country, but I felt it was my victory up there, I put all the time into it.”

 

Bruce Jenner

“If you’re going to dedicate every second to winning the decathlon, what are you doing wasting your time in bed?”

 

Bruce Jenner

“Fear is part of the process. If you weren’t scared, you’d be in trouble.”

 

Bruce Jenner

“I always felt that my greatest asset was not my physical ability, it was my mental ability.”

 

Bruce Jenner

“I think the best way to find out about something is to try to do it to the max. A lot of people take up a hobby or sport and then find an excuse not to carry on with it. Once I start something, I won’t stop until I’m as good at it as I’ll ever be.”

 

Bruce Dickinson

“Sports betting is all about money management, so the most money won on one event is not the most important thing”

 

Bruce Dern

“I’m totally sports-oriented; I relate a lot of my career and everything to sports.”

 

Bruce Dern

“In all American professional sports you start on a certain level and you have to work your way up through a farm system. It’s really the same in acting.”
