The sadness of John Wooden’s passing

John Wooden’s 27-year tenure at UCLA made him a legend.

Among Wooden’s pithy maxims:

“Failing to prepare is preparing to fail.”

“Flexibility is the key to stability.”

“Be quick, but don’t hurry.”

“He never swore, but there was not a coach in the United States who could use the English language any better than he could,” an official told Chapin and Prugh. “He was always technically and grammatically correct when he was chewing you out.”

John Wooden’s life was a love letter, says one LA Times columnist.
