Coach Holtz has always found an amazing way to phrase words into something more than just lines of text.  This quote was featured on a shirt on the Notre Dame campus in the late 90’s.  Great quotes like this are timeless.

“…I have a standard, and it’s a high standard.

If you aim for perfection, you’ll reach greatness.

If you aim for greatness, you’ll reach good.

If you aim for good, you’ll reach average.

Don’t lower that standard.” ~ Lou Holtz
