Success in this game depends less on strength of body than strength of mind and character.....Arnold Palmer (about golf).

This SHOULD apply to pool as well. It's the "character" part that is holding pool back, IMO.

there are a few more good ones (golf that could/should be related to pool) here - http://www.greatest-inspirational-quotes.com/inspirational-golf-quotes.html

One of these days in your travels, a guy is going to show you a brand-new deck of cards on which the seal is not yet broken.

Then this guy is going to offer to bet you that he can make the jack of spades jump out of this brand-new deck of cards and squirt cider in your ear.

But, son, do not accept this bet, because as sure as you stand there, you're going to wind up with an ear full of cider.

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.

Forget who it was, one of those short term projects from long ago. The guy was sharp, worked hard, blew his own horn a bit too much to suit me. Sincerely trying to be helpful I suggested he tone it down a bit. He said:

"There are other people who talk bad about me, why should I help them?"

I had to admit his view made more sense than mine and I was never handicapped by modesty, false or otherwise, after that!
