I love the story about the high school basketball coach who was attempting to motivate his players to persevere through a difficult season. Halfway through the season he stood before the team and said,"Did Micheal Jordan ever quit?" The team responded,"No!" He yelled,"What about Wright brothers?Did they ever give up?" "No!" hollered back the team."Did Muhammad Ali ever quit?" Again the team yelled, "No!" "Did Elmer McAllister ever quit?"
There was a long silence. Finally, one player was bold enough to ask,"Who's Elmer McAllister?We've never heard of him." The coach snapped back,"Of course you've never heard of him - he quit!"
