Quote by Lou Holtz
Winners embrace hard work. They love the discipline of it, the trade-off they're making to win. Losers, on the other hand, see it as punishment. And that's the difference.
This quote emphasizes the attitude winners and losers have towards hard work. Winners are depicted as individuals who wholeheartedly accept and embrace the challenges and requirements that come with hard work. They appreciate the discipline it instills in them and the sacrifices they must make to achieve victory. In contrast, losers view hard work as a form of punishment, possibly due to a lack of motivation or resilience. Ultimately, the quote suggests that one's perspective towards hard work can determine their success or failure in attaining their desired goals.

That's why when major badasses greet each other in movies, they don't say anything, they just nod. The nod means, 'I am a badass, and I recognize that you, too, are a badass, ' but they don't say anything because they're Wolverine and Magneto and it would mess up their vibe to explain.
