“Soccer is simple, but it is
difficult to play simple.”
– Johan Cruyff (Dutch Total Football)

“I have three precious things which I hold fast and prize. The first is gentleness; the second is frugality; the third is humility, which keeps me from putting myself before others. Be gentle and you can be bold; be frugal and you can be liberal; avoid putting yourself before others and you can become a leader among men.” – Lao-tzu (Chinese philosopher)
