“You miss 100% of the shots you never take.” ~ Wayne Gretzky
Hockey’s greatest player ever, who lays claim to the noble title of The Great One, shared this simple, but profound statement.
Wayne Gretzky’s quote has served as motivation for all athletes since he uttered it two decades ago.
It’s also one of 25 that I feature in my new FREE sports comic book Best Sports Quotes.

Wayne Gretzky’s amazing NHL success may never be duplicated. With nine NHL MVP awards on his resume, The Great One nickname may also never be challenged by any player in any sport at any time.
Legendary NHL players like Mario Lemieux, Bobby Orr, Gordy Howe, Bobby Clarke and Phil Esposito may have excelled and even dominated during their careers.
But, their incredible hockey achievements pale in comparison to those of Wayne Gretzky’s.
The Great One’s hockey dominance dwarfs not just NHL Hall of Famers, but celebrated athletes like Michael Jordan, Peyton Manning, Lionel Messi, Serena Williams, Tiger Woods and Derek Jeter in other professional sports who will never come close to accomplishing what Gretzky did on the ice.
Hope Gretzky’s simple statement motivates you today.
So, go ahead and take that shot, whatever it is, because you’ll miss 100% of those you never attempt.
