Tom Brady quotes are about the life and thoughts of one of American football’s greatest quarterbacks. He talks about his love for training and how it doesn’t feel like work but is just part of him now. He is a very talented player in his sport as guys like Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are talented in theirs.
Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr. is a professional American football quarterback. He won a total of six SuperBowls while playing for the New England Patriots, the most by any player ever. He currently plays for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He joined a host of other professional sports stars that expressed their deepest regret at the tragic death of Kobe Bryant. Below are a number of his quotes.
"A lot of times I find that people who are blessed with the most talent don't ever develop that attitude, and the ones who aren't blessed in that way are the most competitive and have the biggest heart."
“I always try to do as much as I can do. I'm never a person that does not enough, because I'd regret not doing enough and think I probably could have done more. I probably go too far and have to reel myself back in, which works in some things, and other things it doesn't work."
"The true competitors, though, are the ones who always play to win."

“Every quarterback can throw a ball; every running back can run; every receiver is fast; but that mental toughness that you talk about translates into competitiveness.”
“My sisters like cooking at my place. It has a bit more room, and the food tastes a little bit better. A big pot of spaghetti and sauce, some warm French bread - works all the time. I think I've been eating pasta for 26 years.”

“Too often in life, something happens and we blame other people for us not being happy or satisfied or fulfilled. So the point is, we all have choices, and we make the choice to accept people or situations or to not accept situations.”
“I'm much more comfortable and confident running out on the field in front of 70,000 people instead of standing in front of a camera trying to say some lines. The people who do that as a profession are very talented because it's certainly not easy.”
“To me, if you're trying to impress a girl, get a date, they're gonna like that more because you're a confident guy. That's what it comes down to.”

“If I feel anxious every time someone is staring at me, well, I can't control what they stare at, but my reaction is, I'm just not going to go outside the house. I'm going to stay in and chill. And when I do go out, I understand what comes along with that.”
