Which meant he wanted me to come back with a scraped knee or an injury. When I went out to play, I felt like I'd better get hurt. -Jessica Biel

A dancer's life is hard – it is so physically demanding, and at any moment, you could have an injury that could end your career. -Monica Cruz

Once in a while, when I'm out on the lawn, I'll jump around and do a couple of things. Here's a secret: The older you get, the more difficult it gets. The smallest little injury stays with you for so long. But that's how it goes, and it doesn't stop me. I'm always ready to do something that hurts a little! -Mads Mikkelsen

The promise of any artwork is that it can hold us – viewer and maker – in a conflicted or contestable space, without real-world injury or loss. -Kara Walker

It's funny to me because everyone says I'm injury prone. That's hilarious to me because I've never blown a hammy or a shoulder or anything like that, knock on wood. -Bryce Harper

I met a woman who went through a very difficult personal crisis, and she was really bed-ridden for a long time, and 'Friends' got her through. I met a woman who had a brain injury while living in Europe, and 'Friends' got her through. -Maggie Wheeler

No boxer in the history of boxing has had Parkinson's. There's no injury in my brain that suggests that the illness came from boxing. -Muhammad Ali

As computer intelligence gets better, what will be possible when we interface our brains with computers? It might sound scary, but early evidence suggests otherwise: interfacing brains with machines can be helpful in treating traumatic brain injury, repairing spinal cord damage, and countless other applications. -Bill Maris

There may sometimes be ungenerous attempts to keep a young man down; and they will succeed, too, if he allows his mind to be diverted from its true channel to brood over the attempted injury. -Abraham Lincoln

I could have been a professional footballer and trialled with Blackburn Rovers. But I snapped my cruciate ligaments, an injury that has dogged me ever since. -Maurice Flanagan

Am I ever going to be able to play football again? What's going on with my career? I was just thinking things like that. You've got tears going down your eyes. You've got your trainers right there and my parents right there. I was just thinking, "Is this it?" I didn't know what a knee injury was. I'd never felt pain like that. -Rob Gronkowski

If I'm thinking about a particular injury, then I'm already a step behind. If I'm so gun shy in the pocket and not worried about the receivers that are open down field, something's going to happen that's not going to get the job done. So my main focus is having confidence in myself knowing that I'm able to be myself when I'm out there. -Cam Newton

Obviously, not playing a game before playoffs is something that happened, but especially going into the playoffs, you try to feel yourself out, where you're at, and then get right into game tempo and jump right in and play where you were before the injury. -Patrick Kane

I'd always told people that I would have liked to pursue some sort of professional fight career. I don't know if I'm quite right for it, since I'm extremely prone to injury. I've been boxing for a couple years, and I've messed around with some Jiu-Jitsu, and I've always felt that there's such a passion in a real fighter's heart. -Matt Cohen

A long iron rod rocketed straight through the very forefront of Phineas Gage's brain. It's kind of an unusual part of the brain: you can suffer pretty severe injuries to it and often walk away from the injury. It's not a part of the brain that's necessarily vital for your biological self. But it is very important for personality. -Sam Kean

Violence, as it is for the mafia and most other criminal organizations, was bad for pirate business. By doing battle with prey, pirates risked damage to their own ships and injury to their crews. It also made them bigger targets for law enforcement. -Robert Kurson

I admit that when challenging times first surface, it's not first instinct to do a happy dance. But when you take time to pause and add insight to injury, you will immediately start to feel empowered to make those majorly needed life shifts. -Karen Salmansohn

We should live, act, and say nothing to the injury of anyone. It is not only best as a matter of principle, but it is the path to peace and honor. -Robert E. Lee

If men possessed wisdom, which stands in the same relation to the form of man as the sight to the eye, they would not cause any injury to themselves or to others; for the knowledge of truth removes hatred and quarrels, and prevents mutual injuries. -Maimonides

For me, a big thing, because I have really long legs, is core stability. It's very important not only for injury but also just to be able to carry my weight around properly and not feel like I'm collapsing in specific situations when I'm stretched out too far. -Milos Raonic

I, for one, refuse to box without headgear as an amateur. With the rising awareness of concussions and head injury, it is becoming more evident that we need to protect our brains as much as possible. There hasn't been enough research to conclude that it is safer to box without the use of headgear. -Mandy Bujold

Injuries aren't anything foreign to me. I am used to overcoming illness and injury; you can't complain about it. When you're standing up there on the blocks, it doesn't really matter: it's all about the next minute. -Cate Campbell

Soccer was my first love, and I enjoyed playing on the left wing until a groin injury forced me out of the game in 2008. -Chad le Clos

When individuals become angry with one another, an injury of some sort will likely occur. When governments become angry, entire civilisations are wiped out. -John McAfee

How much abuse is a fighter expected to endure before he can be allowed to show some concern for his own welfare? Anyone who has been around fighters knows they all share the same secret: They are more afraid of embarrassment and humiliation than injury. Do fans and writers use this fact against them in what we celebrate or criticize? -Brin-Jonathan Butler

The Asia and the Pacific region is facing an epidemic of road death and injury, but we also have innovative Asian road safety solutions. -Michelle Yeoh

One reason, doubtless, why squirrels are so bold and reckless in leaping through the trees is that, if they miss their hold and fall, they sustain no injury. Every species of tree-squirrel seems to be capable of a sort of rudimentary flying, at least of making itself into a parachute, so as to ease or break a fall or a leap from a great height. -John Burroughs

If you're gonna do action movies, you're gonna get an injury at some point. It's inevitable. -Jason Statham

The eyeball is contained in the cavity of the orbit. In this situation, it is securely protected from injury, whilst its position is such as to ensure the most extensive range of sight. -Henry Gray

I've just had some bad luck. I've had every injury known to man. I understand how people think, 'How can this be happening all the time to Gerry Cooney?' But it did. -Gerry Cooney

When you play for 20 years – and really, I never had to miss a game due to injury – that's not just good protection. That's good luck. -Peyton Manning

We, as a league, we have not in any way changed our desire to do everything we can to make it safe, make it safe as to head injury. We hope and will support any data that would give us more insight into any short- and long-term consequences. We would support that. -Jerry Jones

Jumping isn't as important to my training as you might think; I'm only in the sandpit once a week. There's a high risk factor of injury doing it, so instead, I rely on my progress in the gym to judge how far I'll jump on the big day. -Greg Rutherford

You can be in the shape of your life, and then injury strikes. So you have to grab your opportunities. -Katarina Johnson-Thompson

Moral Injury is differentiated from PTSD in that it directly relates to guilt and shame veterans experience as a result of committing actions that go against their moral codes. Therapists who study and treat moral injury have found that no amount of medication can relieve the pain of trying to live with these moral burdens. -Chuck Norris

When you have an injury, you are hindered a little bit. -Ashton Eaton

If I or my soldiers have plundered or done injury to the houses or to the ministers of religion, I repent me of my sin – but it is not of Edward of England that I shall ask pardon. -William Wallace

Sure, I get tired. But it's a long season, and you've got to play no matter if you have a little injury. I'm that kind of player. -Asdrubal Cabrera

Any psychologist will tell you that healing comes from honest confrontation with our injury or with our past. Whatever that thing is that has hurt us or traumatized us, until we face it head on, we will have issues moving forward in a healthy way. -Nate Parker

I couldn't identify just one, but there's numerous rule changes and points of emphasis that have reflected a change on the field almost immediately. It's hard to avoid the horse-collar tackle, for example, but the players understand why the rule is in there – because of the injury rate prior to us making that a personal foul. -Jeff Fisher

At some point, it comes to an end regardless, however it comes, whether it is retirement or injury; at some point, it comes to an end. -Allen Iverson

I benched up to 500 pounds one day and decided that was enough because I knew the risk of a pec tear or a shoulder injury would be catastrophic to my bodybuilding career. -Lee Haney

Not missing games, miss one game due to injury in my career, and that even hurt me to miss that game, but I just love to get out there and compete, both ends of the ball, and I don't think I'm afraid to take the big shot. If I'm 2-for-15, I'm not afraid to take that shot, make it 3-for-16. -Klay Thompson

New York was growing so fast that the extraordinary prosperity which attended 'The Times' almost from the outset brought no real injury to any of its important rivals; for years thereafter, they all grew and prospered together. -Elmer Davis

Players now have a groin injury for months and months, and I often think they don't really give a toss whether they're playing or not because they're getting paid anyway. -George Best

I talk to people of different ages, and a guy who's 38 who says, 'I could've played Major League Baseball, but I had this knee injury…' Yeah, probably not. It's a big thing with men and sports, where they think they could have touched that thing. -Christopher Guest

My surname certainly suggests a man whose destiny has always been injury. -John Hurt

A few weeks after my mom passed in November of 2013, I came back from an injury and entered the Egg Bowl in the second half against Ole Miss. I'll never forget the feeling when I walked back out on the field. As I walked into the Egg Bowl, the crowd stood up and clapped like they were enveloping me in a giant hug. -Dak Prescott

I played very well in AC Milan, but I had two years of injury problems. I needed to change team and the city for my mentality. -Alexandre Pato

As a junior in high school, I had some injury problems with my arm and shoulder from baseball, so I didn't play quarterback as a junior. I played a little wide receiver, linebacker, and safety. -Carson Wentz

Check my records: you'll find I've never caused a bad injury to a player. -Diego Costa

To Him I look as my judge, to Him as the avenger of my wrongs, firm in my own good conscience and secure in the sincerity of my devotion, rooted in faith and confident that those who in the love of justice suffer injury can never be confounded, nor those who break the horns of the persecutors of the Church be deprived of their everlasting reward. -Thomas Becket

On Warped Tour in Boise, Idaho, I broke my tooth on the mic. I took a pretty significant chunk out of my tooth and had to have it sanded down. It wasn't the most painful injury, but it was the most unexpected one. -Andy Biersack

I love yoga. There's a lot of stretching involved, which helps with my flexibility and injury prevention. Vinyasa is my favorite as a recovery tool and for me to continue having my legs feel good. -Alex Morgan

When you're competitive, the last thing you want to do is come out of a game, regardless of what kind of injury it is – whether it's an ankle, a knee, a rib, or a head injury. -Aaron Rodgers

I think all volleyball players are playing with some type of shoulder injury. You use it so much. -Brooke Sweat

Anytime you have an injury, you're going to be iffy about stuff. -Jason Pierre-Paul

Fans are demanding. They want to win. They want it now. If you have an injury, they want you back the next day. -Scottie Pippen

If you feel like you've got a concussion, if you don't know, if you take the test whatever, if you feel like you've got a concussion, the biggest thing is rest, man. Cause you usually compound your injury so much if you go back out there, and we all know that now. -Calvin Johnson

Any time you have an injury, it's going to be tough. -Calvin Johnson

The tension in pro ball comes from the realization that any game could be your last, that an injury could end your career. And in TV, you never know if or when your series will be canceled. -John Matuszak

Any time you have significant injury, it is about the perspective, how you attack it. -Seth Rollins

Sometimes it takes an injury to get your chance. -Chris Gronkowski

You've got to be careful with any injury, but I mean, if you research hamstrings, if you know anything about hamstrings, you've definitely got to be careful. -Rob Gronkowski

I got traded in the middle of an injury – my ankle injury – so in '09, I came back and just kind of flukishly had some success. I was far, far from healthy. I came back in 2010 still nursing that ankle injury. Yeah, it was a rough, rough go. My first few years in Chicago were not much fun. -Jake Peavy

I have never hidden my injury before, or fitness problems. Even my shoulder operation was planned after consulting the then coach Gary Kirsten and skipper MS Dhoni. -Virender Sehwag

It drove me crazy, Scotland. It was cold. It was abuse. It was snowing and everything. I was so cold that one day I faked an injury to go to the locker room. -Riyad Mahrez

I just feel like it's my job to take care of my body. I play a contact sport, 99.9 percent injury rate. As far as being injury-prone or getting hurt, it's going to happen. But it's my job to take care of my body, come week in and week out. -Stefon Diggs

The arteries are found in nearly every part of the animal body, with the exception of the hairs, nails, and epidermis; and the larger trunks usually occupy the most protected situations, running, in the limbs, along the flexor side, where they are less exposed to injury. -Henry Gray

I've had to learn how to listen to my body over the years and figure out how it all works together. I'm not invincible, so focusing on training my whole body and injury prevention have been extremely important. -Megan Rapinoe

I'm impassioned about injury prevention as an athlete. -Becky Sauerbrunn

The ultimate problem confronting me all my life has been the senseless injury to and neglect of my sister. -Philip K. Dick

I'm more thoughtful and aware of how my body feels. I've learned the difference of what is just sore from a hard workout or what's sore from a possible injury. -Kaetlyn Osmond

When lab safety procedures aren't followed, people can get hurt or worse. Lab equipment and chemicals that are improperly handled can result in personal injury and even death. -Abdul Qadeer Khan

When I fought with Michael Johnson, when I took his arm for the kimura, I can break it, but I go very slowly, be careful, because I don't want to give him injury. -Khabib Nurmagomedov

I do a lot of book signings and conventions every year, and I meet a great many readers who are struggling… they're working through illness, injury, addiction, depression, grief, or some other trauma. It seems to me that there's a lot of heroism in fighting those things as well, as best you can. -Gail Simone

I shattered the heel in my good leg, and it was an extremely bad injury. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to snowboard again. -Mike Schultz

I ended up winning a silver medal at the Summer X Games Adaptive Supercross seven months after my injury – on a leg that I built. -Mike Schultz

I think whenever you have any kind of injury or challenge, you just have to deal with it the best you can. You have to decide what's important to you and focus on getting back to where you want to be. And enjoy where you are and what your goals and dreams are and just give it 100 percent. -Gretchen Bleiler

From any traumatic injury, you're going to experience a lack of confidence. There's a whole process you have to go through to break free of that. -Gretchen Bleiler

Any time you are inverting yourself three times in a single air trick, you have to be cautious to execute properly and avoid injury. -Scotty Lago

It's been a reality check that my muscles are still really affected by my spinal cord injury, but it's also been super empowering to see how much I'm capable of. -Victoria Arlen

When you have a spinal or brain injury, or any kind of devastating illness, you kind of fall through the cracks in a sense. Your world implodes, and no one is really there to help pick up the pieces. -Victoria Arlen

My knee injury was something serious. To go six months before I could even jog is pretty serious. -Jimmy Graham

I definitely agree about the future of youth football being flag. There's just more and more evidence that the youth brain is particularly susceptible to the injury – thin necks, big heads. They're not as coordinated; they're not as skillful. For many reasons, I think the wave of the future is flag football for youth. -Ann McKee

When I was born, I had a birth injury in my second and third vertebrae. It gave me what they called spastic paralysis, which is actually cerebral palsy. -Leon Russell

My breadth of football experience, my injury history, and my all-or-nothing goal to become one of the best linebackers in the NFL, combined with all I'd been learning about the game's neurological effects on the brain, convinced me I'd be wise in choosing another career. -Chris Borland

After my head injury, I was, like, bipolar, an emotional wreck. -Brady Jandreau

I went through a lot of pretty intense struggles in my life, through my head injury, whether it was mental or psychological. -Brady Jandreau

A lot of people are blowing Shogun's fight with Mark Coleman out of proportion. He was coming off an injury, and he gassed early on in his first fight back. -Chuck Liddell

It so fascinates me how we always laugh when somebody falls on a banana peel, how comedy and injury are often so interwoven. I've always been a sucker for that. -James Lapine

I've done what I could as far as getting physically healthy after my knee injury, and I've done what I could to get mentally healthy after losing my husband. -Cat Zingano

How I hurt my knee was doing something so minimal that it was a little worrisome. To try that motion and others again, after the injury and after surgery, made you worry a bit. -Cat Zingano

I have long been puzzled by the entrenched mentality, and often enforced practice, of longer work hours and less sleep. Innumerable policies exist within the workplace regarding smoking, substance abuse, ethical behaviour, and injury and disease prevention. -Matthew Walker

A lot of the weaknesses we have are based on a lack of lateral movement, which can set you up for injury. When you exercise in multiple planes, you see improvements in balance, mobility, and function. -Harley Pasternak

One of the things I found as a dancer is that you're trying to perfect your body but also protect it and keep it injury-free. When you work against your own weight, you're still building lean muscle and bone density, but you're in a safer zone. -Mary Helen Bowers

The injury that ended my time in football turned out to be serendipitous. I tore my Achilles while training for a pending tryout with the New York Giants, and when it snapped, so did my career, basically. That's what led me to gain the confidence to get into the acting world on my own terms. -John David Washington

My schedule with WWE is all year unless there's an injury. -Randy Orton

You can have an ankle or shoulder injury, and in six or eight months, you're healed. But if the heart stops for a few moments, that's it. -Nwankwo Kanu

In football, anything can happen. You can have an injury, and then you won't play at the highest level anymore. If you don't have a diploma, what then? -Romelu Lukaku

If you were inactive due to an injury or a surgery, then common sense rules the day when inching closer to the area that was hurt. That is very different from inactivity due to being ill. After illness, be aware of how taxing your workout is cardiovascularly and err on the side of less. -Gunnar Peterson

I had an injury in my leg, and everybody was talking about that. I decided to cut my hair and leave the small thing there. I come to training, and everybody saw me with bad hair. Everybody was talking about the hair and forgot about the injury. I could stay more calm and relaxed and focused on my training. -Ronaldo

A strained hamstring is a muscle tear and very easy to take care of with proper therapy. The greatest problem for a sprinter coming back from a hamstring injury is getting yourself to a point where you are confident mentally that all the muscles are going to be firing. -Donovan Bailey

I'm really not an injury-prone player. I just had that one injury that took, like, two years. -Joel Embiid

Art gives us the opportunity to have clarity as well as hope that we might be able to survive a situation, or hope that we can find a way out of it without too much more injury to ourselves. -Ntozake Shange

After an injury, I think you have to be strong mentally. -Olivier Giroud

I will be the first to say when I know I can't fight due to injury, as my long-term health is my number one priority. -Cain Velasquez

I have a very fit body and have never faced any major injury problems. So yes, the secret to my success is my fit body. -Mary Kom

I don't like to risk – I'm actually not a tough guy at all, make no mistake about it, so I'm not going to do something that I'm scared of. So, if something looks dangerous, at the time I didn't think it was, because I'm the first person to cower away from a risk of injury if there seems to be one. -Kenny Omega

I try to think of things in levels, pain levels and such, injury levels, like, 'How bad is this injury supposed to be? How much should I be selling?' And I think it also helps with the emotional attachment of fans when you're trying to tell a story as well. -Kenny Omega

The obvious thing is I would love to fight Conor McGregor. We've got some history there, and he won, and people saying he didn't knock me out because of an injury he had. I was injured in the fight, too, so let's test that theory. I want to test that theory. -Max Holloway

I would never discredit the sport or my opponent by reading my injury list before or after the fight. I've always thought it's a very underhanded thing to do, and it's a very cowardly thing to do, to come out and say, 'I'm hurt,' particularly if you win a fight. -Chael Sonnen

I have a history, even going back to my time in college doing plays, of always hurting myself at some point in whatever I'm in. Like, always! And it's usually my own doing and me being rambunctious and going, 'Oh, I can do that better,' or 'Oh, I can do that quicker,' and it results in injury. -Cress Williams

I greatly appreciate that people would like to see me have one more match or comeback or, 'Daniel Bryan got cleared, so why can't you?' I will never be cleared. Mine is a completely different injury. He had neck issues, but it wasn't his neck issues that retired him, actually. It was the concussion issues. -Edge

Every time I get an injury or suffer from a personal setback, that's exactly what I do: I persevere. -Edge

I was champion, off and on, for quite a few years, and I never missed one title match from an injury. I got hurt lots of times, but the reality is you've got so much pinned on you and so much tied onto you, the company and your peers can't afford for you to get hurt. -Bret Hart

A lot of people don't realize how severe a concussion injury is. You have to listen to the doctors. You have to be really careful about them. -Bret Hart

I am aware that I have come to the end of my martial times, but training with pain I want no longer. My body is battered by countless trainings. I collected nine operations; the body has become prone to injury. -Mirko Cro Cop

I had actually had an injury that happened to me personally on a flight – an overhead bag fell directly on top of my head while I was on a plane. I was out of it; I was completely out of it. -Nia Jax

I had a head injury when I was living in England; I was in the hospital for three days, and they didn't even ask for my name. I spent three days in there. And then, when I was done, I just got up and left. I wasn't a British citizen; I was there on a work permit. -Jim Jefferies

I know a little bit how it is coming back from an injury, trying to find your rhythm. -Paul George

My playing time in 1992 was limited because of an injury I suffered in a practice. -John Stockton

I have felt in my head that I would like to play, but then you listen to your body and accept it might be better that you do not play every game immediately after an injury. -Christian Eriksen

While we were shooting 'Baahubali,' I had a knee injury, and a few months later, Prabhas injured his shoulder. Those two injuries meant a break of around five months from the schedule. So around that time, I was doing absolutely nothing, and Neeraj Pandey called me with 'Baby.' -Rana Daggubati

I'm a competitor, and I'm sure a lot of people who don't get to play because of an injury, whether it's their pride or their ego, whatever it is, they want to be out on the field. -Josh Allen

I changed my position when I was 16 or 17. I started in midfield or further forward as a number 10, and then in one tournament, we lost two defenders to injury in the same game, and we didn't have any on the bench. So I played at the back, and the manager of the first team saw me, and he said, 'I want this guy in the first team,' and that was that! -David Luiz

I want to play injury-free. -Emre Can

We all know, going into this business and stepping into the ring, there's a possibility of injury. But you're never expecting it to happen, and when it does, it's just the worst thing ever. -Bayley

Football was a natural thing for me, and with no injuries or injury history that would stop me from training, I just enjoyed coming in every day and playing; then it was taken away from me. -Jack Wilshere

You become more aware of your body when you go through a long injury. You work on things you don't know about until you get injured, so different muscles. -Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Obviously, everyone goes in the gym and does the biceps bells and the bench press, but when you're injured, you work on your core, your pelvic floor, your groins, on glutes, and muscles you wouldn't really know about. It does make you a stronger player all round in terms of injury prevention. -Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

I played tennis a lot when I had the skull injury. For the first two months of my preparation, it was all I could do. It is a great sport for me because it helps my hand-eye coordination, and you need quick feet, which is a good exercise for a keeper. -Petr Cech

Being sick is a different story than having an injury. If you have a right arm injury, you can still use the rest of your body. You still have the energy to perform. But when you are sick and can't really get out of bed or walk or even breathe, you're not yourself. You don't have the cardio, strength, speed, or explosion. -Sage Northcutt

I don't want to be the poster boy for head injury. I shouldn't be the poster boy for head injury. I have really tried to distance myself from that. -Troy Aikman

I had two concussions that were of major concern, what I would term very significant. As far as head injury goes, I would say all of the others were pretty minor and inconsequential. -Troy Aikman

I've had five surgeries that could have ended most people's careers. But because of the fact that I'm resilient and have a lot of pride, I refused to let myself go out except on my terms. An injury is not going to take me out. -Mark Henry

When I first came in, I won a world championship pretty fast. Then I worked with John Morrison and Daniel Bryan, became King of the Ring, went back to 'SmackDown,' became the world champion again, won the Rumble, did a lot of things, went away after an injury. -Sheamus

It's really tough when you have back injury because you cannot bend; you cannot react at the balls. -Simona Halep

It's tough to play with an injury. -Simona Halep

When you sign for a new club, you just want to play, and when injury stops you, it is frustrating. -Jack Rodwell

There's no honor in faking an injury. There is no integrity, because you are lying about it. -Ben Askren

Diljit Dosanjh has been the best choice for playing me on screen. He has given a tremendous performance with true emotions and actions. He has not only delivered my feelings for each and every moment during my struggle post my injury but also worked hard to portray my personality as a hockey player. -Sandeep Singh

If you get a big injury, it is not easy at all to deal with it. -Danny Welbeck

Nobody comes back from a serious injury and is the same after a month or even three months. You should play in the reserves; you get your muscle back and regain your match rhythm. Psychologically, you need to build your confidence back up and you hope there are no complications. Even in a settled side, it's hard. -Diego Forlan

Each injury is different regardless of whether it's the same type of injury, so you have to make sure you're doing it right and doing everything like you should so you come back 100% and don't have to go through all of it again. -Deshaun Watson

I've played lots of games carrying an injury, but people don't value what I do for Barcelona. -Rivaldo

In 2012, we had just won the league with City, and I was really high on confidence going into the Euros when I picked up an injury, which meant I couldn't go. -Gareth Barry

I don't want to think much about my injury in Australia. That phase is history. -Prithvi Shaw

I've never faked an injury or an illness before. -Dirk Nowitzki

You never want an injury as you're getting ready for the playoffs. -Gilbert Arenas

I had a pretty bad injury the end of my freshman year in college, and that taught me just to be patient. -Malcolm Brogdon

When you have a coaching change, when you have trades, an injury, when you have all these things happening – these are all things that are out of your control. Quickly, you start to understand that, really, the only thing you can control is going out and playing hard every night and being ready for your opportunity. -Malcolm Brogdon

Messi gets kicked by everybody, and he gets up and carries on. Doesn't scream, doesn't fake injury. -David Moyes

Psychologically, for an athlete to miss a game because of injury, it's tough. -Julian Edelman

It's one thing to be 100 percent and go out and play football feeling great. It's another thing when you're not feeling good. You're sick, or you got a nagging injury, and you gotta go out in the cold and go across the middle where a guy's coming full speed at you trying to kill you. -Julian Edelman

I'm really happy with my first season in the Premier League: I played 38 games and managed to stay injury-free. -Richarlison

Growing up, we were very similar, but Steven got a bad injury. It set him back a year. But for that, we would have progressed at the same time. -Ryan Sessegnon

It's always kind of a weird thing when you come back from an injury, especially with your heart. -Clint Dempsey

I was told as a teenager I'd never box again. I had a really bad wrist injury; I couldn't even shadow box for six months. I went through surgery just to try and manage it. -Joe Calzaghe
