jimmy v.

in honor of Jimmy V week, i am going to share some of my favorite quotes of his. it's amazing how NC State has had 2 awesome coaches, Jim Valvano and Kay Yow, who lost the battle to cancer. i'm thankful for their examples and legacies, and how they represented the Wolfpack and always will.

"Cancer can take away all of my physical abilities. It cannot touch my mind, it cannot touch my heart, and it cannot touch my soul."
 
"I just got one last thing, I urge all of you, all of you, to enjoy your life, the precious moments you have. To spend each day with some laughter and some thought, to get you're emotions going."
 
"I will thank God for the day and the moment I have."
 
"I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em."
 
"If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special."
 
and of course, the classic:
"Don't give up. Don't ever give up."
