A Quote by LaVell Edwards on belief, dreams, farewells, play, retirement, seasons, and time

Speaking as he unintentionally launched his farewell tour by announcing that the 2000 season would be his last before retirement: Honestly, I had never, ever in my wildest dreams believed I would ever do this. All I wanted to do was to play it out and when it was time to go, hang it up, take off and sail into the sunset somewhere.

A Quote by LaVell Edwards on retirement, seasons, and thinking

BYU takes on defending national champion Florida State in the Pigskin Classic in Jacksonville, Fla., eight days after announcing that the 2000 season would be his last before retirement: It's exciting. Thinking back to when I first came here, to when we were playing games where the Richards P.E. Building is, with the likes of Western Michigan - who beat us - and other teams like that. Now after all these years we're playing teams like Florida State.

A Quote by LaVell Edwards on good, retirement, seasons, and time

Considering retirement? When that happens, I don't want that to be the story of whatever the season it is. I don't want to have to be talking about it all the time. My plan is when the time is up, it'll be time to hang it up. When that comes, it'll come. But right now, I don't have any clue as to when that'll be. It's been that way the last couple of years. . . . I've often felt if I ever get to a point where I don't want to go recruiting and can't get excited about it, then maybe it's time. That's a pretty good indication that's probably it. And I haven't reached that point at all yet.

A Quote by LaVell Edwards on retirement, seasons, thought, and time

I honestly haven't thought about it much. When it comes time for me to retire, I don't think I'll know going into that season. I'll have to evaluate it at the end of each year.

A Quote by LaVell Edwards on football, future, good, projects, and retirement

Edwards commented as he signed an extension to his contract. We have good young players in the program and strong schedules in the coming years. The future looks bright for BYU football. I also want to get a number of projects off the ground before I retire.

A Quote by LaVell Edwards on attitude, coaching, decisions, ethics, questions, retirement, seasons, and work

After announcing that the 2000 season would be his last before retirement: Last winter I made the decision to coach for only one more season. I have been wrestling with the timing of announcing that decision. After seeing the outstanding attitude and work ethic of this team, I came to the conclusion that it's best to get the announcement out of the way now so we can focus on the season and avoid the repeated distractions that come from questions about my retirement.

A Quote by Sir Laurence Kerr, Baron Olivier of Brighton on acting, force, resentment, retirement, and theater

On resentment at his forced retirement from the stage after he was fired by Britain's National Theater, I should be soaring away with my head tilted slightly toward the gods, feeding on the caviar of Shakespeare.... An actor must act.

On resentment at his forced retirement from the stage after he was fired by Britain's National Theater, My stage successes have provided me with the greatest moments outside myself, my film successes the best moments, professionally, within myself.

A Quote by Joseph Addison on age, business, life, and retirement

Though we seem grieved at the shortness of life in general, we are wishing every period of it at an end. The minor longs to be at age, then to be a man of business, then to make up an estate, then to arrive at honors, then to retire.

Joseph Addison (1672 - 1719)

A Quote by Johnny Blood on death, privilege, and retirement

We professional athletes are very lucky. Unlike most mortals, we are given the privilege of dying twice - once when we retire and again when death takes us.
