    Visiting a village school one day, King Oscar II of Sweden asked the pupils to name the greatest kings of Sweden. The answers were unanimous: Gustavus Vasa, Gustavus Adolphus, Charles X. Then the teacher leaned over to one little boy and whispered something in his ear. "And King Oscar," volunteered the child.
    "Really? And what has King Oscar done that's so remarkable?" asked the king.
    "I--I--I don't know," stammered the unhappy child.
    "That's all right," said the king. "Neither do I."

    Super Bowl XVIII in Tampa, Florida, was billed as the ultimate game in the ultimate city. Several years ago, Duane Thomas, then playing with the Dallas Cowboys, was preparing for Super Bowl VI in New Orleans. "If it's the ultimate game, how come they're playing it again next year?"

    The nice thing about football is that you have a scoreboard to show how you've done. In other things in life, you don't. At least, not one you can see. 

    Football coach Chuck Noll.

    Helen Hayes once said that her mother drew a distinction between achievement and success. Her mother advised her that "achievement is the knowledge that you have studied and worked hard and done the best that is in you. Success is being praised by others, and that's nice too, but not as important or satisfying. Always aim for achievement and forget about success."
