"It's not how big you are, it's how tight you're wound."

Jim Wickwire (in an ad from the 1970's).  Not sure if he was truly the one who came up with this, or if it was someone from the ad agency.

I'm not sure, but I think it might have been JanSport.  I am pretty sure it was one of the corporate sponsors for the successful 1975 K2 expedition, of which Jim was one of the four Americans to summit.  In the ad, which was a full page picture, Wickwire (who is pretty short) was standing next to Jim Whittaker (who is 6'5").

Side note:  I worked with one of the team members, Cherie Bech, at Olympic Memorial Hospital in Port Angeles in the early 1980's.  She and fellow team member Chris Chandler joined my family for Thanksgiving, and I got to know them pretty well.

- The most dangerous thing you can do in life is play it safe. Casey Neistat

I say something similar about sports..."Playing not to lose, is the best way to lose". Like having a lead and trying to run out the clock, the Seahawks seem to be pretty 'good' at that.

Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more
than one generation away from extinction.
   It is not ours by inheritance, it must be
fought for and defended constantly by each
generation, for it comes only once to a
people. Those who have known freedom,
and then lost it, have never known it again.

                              Ronald Reagan

When I rest I feel utterly lifeless except that my throat burns when I draw breath... I can scarcely go on. No despair, no happiness, no anxiety. I have not lost the mastery of my feelings, there are actually no more feelings. I consist only of will. After each few metres this too fizzles out in unending tiredness. Then I think nothing. I let myself fall, just lie there. For an indefinite time I remain completely irresolute. Then I make a few steps again.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

~Theodore Roosevelt ~

I resemble that remark, I need to try to be less critical myself, especially where the Seahawks are concerned.  wink.gif
