Other Magic Johnson quotes:
For me, it always goes back to something I learned in basketball. There's winning and there's losing, and in life you have to know they both will happen. But what's never been acceptable to me is quitting.
If you want someone to be your mentor, you better be ready to listen and be humbled.
If you're a competitive person, that stays with you. You don't stop. You always look over your shoulder.
I look three to five years ahead, not 10 years behind.
If people around you aren't going anywhere, if their dreams are no bigger than hanging out on the corner, or if they're dragging you down, get rid of them.
I'm a big believer in dreaming. If you don't dream it, you can't become it.
In life, winning and losing will both happen. What is never acceptable is quitting.
I never think that there's something I can't do, whether it's beating my opponent one on one or practicing another hour because something about my game is just not right.
I love coming to work. I never have a bad day.
Life doesn't stop because something happens to you.
