Legendary Lady Vols coach Pat Summitt, who died Tuesday morning, was known for her memorable quotes, many of which shed light on her leadership style and work ethic. Here's a look back at some of the ones she'll be remembered for.
On how to win:
"Here's how I'm going to beat you. I'm going to outwork you. That's it. That's all there is to it." — Summitt in her 1999 book "Reach for the Summit"
"I remember every player — every single one — who wore the Tennessee orange, a shade that our rivals hate, a bold, aggravating color that you can usually find on a roadside crew, 'or in a correctional institution,' as my friend Wendy Larry jokes. But to us the color is a flag of pride, because it identifies us as Lady Vols and therefore as women of an unmistakable type. Fighters. I remember how many of them fought for a better life for themselves. I just met them halfway." — Summitt in her 2013 book with Sally Jenkins, "Sum it Up: A Thousand and Ninety-Eight Victories, a Couple of Irrelevant Losses, and a Life in Perspective"
“Discipline helps you finish a job, and finishing is what separates excellent work from average work.” — Summitt in "Reach for the Summit"
On setting goals:
“It’s harder to stay on top than it is to make the climb, Continue to seek new goals.” — Summitt in "Reach for the Summit"
On her fight with Alzheimer's:
"Competition got me off the farm and trained me to seek out challenges and to endure setbacks; and in combination with my faith, it sustains me now in my fight with Alzheimer’s disease." — Summitt in a news release announcing her 2013 memoir
