"If you think you can do a thing or think you can't do a thing, you're right."Mike Krzyzewski on Henry Ford
"A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus."Mike Krzyzewski on Martin Luther King, Jr.
"It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership."Mike Krzyzewski on Nelson Mandela
"A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves."Mike Krzyzewski on Lao Tzu
"Leadership is solving problems. The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help or concluded you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership."Mike Krzyzewski on Colin Powell
"To me, teamwork is the beauty of our sport, where you have five acting as one. You become selfless."
"Fun is to experience things you would not have been able to experience in any other setting."
"In high school, in sport, I had a coach who told me I was much better than I thought I was, and would make me do more in a positive sense. He was the first person who taught me not to be afraid of failure."
"I think some parents now look at a youngster failing as the final thing. It's a process, and failure is part of the process. I would like it if the teacher and the parents would connect more. I think that used to be, but we're losing a little bit of that right now."
"I've tried to handle winning well, so that maybe we'll win again, but I've also tried to handle failure well. If those serve as good examples for teachers and kids, then I hope that would be a contribution I have made to sport. Not just basketball, but to sport."
