Our football program is bigger than any one person.
- Craig Johnston

We were having a trial game against Leeds,
and Jack Charlton was the boss of Middlesbrough at the time.
- Craig Johnston

I've always had an inquisitive mind about everything
from flowers to television sets to motor cars.
Always pulled them apart - couldn't put 'em back,
but always extremely interested in how things work.
- Craig Johnston

Now Jack Charlton wasn't wrong, I was a bad footballer.
- Craig Johnston

 

So for a year I spent all my time hiding from Jack
Charlton in the car park practising my skills.
- Craig Johnston

The main thing I do now is I coach kids,
and all of these stories along the way are based in reality.
- Craig Johnston

So I did in fact spend two and a half years in the
Middlesbrough car park practising skills.
But if you spend four or five or six hours a day practising,
you get better.

But I had the commitment, and I had the understanding,

and if you spend the time with it, you're gonna reap the rewards.
- Craig Johnston

for the bright blue sky and the soft fog and the gentle rain,
for the tree veiled in the season's first frost,
for the baby's laugh,
for the touch of a hand and the whispered "I love you."
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
- Marianne Williamson
