"I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."Fran Tarkenton on Michael Jordan
"It's good sportsmanship to not pick up lost golf balls while they are still rolling."Fran Tarkenton on Mark Twain

"Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after."Fran Tarkenton on Henry David Thoreau
"The pro athlete is a sad tale. He signs a big contract and thinks he's set for life. I didn't think I was set for life, and I don't now. As athletes, we are important, celebrities, in demand and rich. Then we are out of the game and we are not important, not celebrities, not in demand and not rich."
