I play on the Warriors. We are a U11 team playing select U12. Our girls are always the shortest. One day, our coach said to us right before a game," It's not about the size of the warrior in the fight, it's about the size of the fight in the warrior."

I was a former college coach for many years going up against a "know it all" coach. I was filling in as coach on a U-6 team. (I am the director of the league). The team I was filling in for got beaten. After the game the other coach said, Quote " I am a really great coach, look how we beat that team and that coach is a professional". My response (which have been used since and published) "A truly great coach does not tell people that they are a truly great coach"
