Pelé quotes and sayings

“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.”
Pele
‘At 17, I already had responsibility because I took care of my family, but in the football I was young; I wasn’t experienced or the captain – I was just in the team.’
“A penalty is a cowardly way to score.”
Pelé, 
“Everything is practice.”
Pele
“I don’t believe there is such a thing as a ‘born’ soccer player. Perhaps you are born with certain skills and talents, but quite frankly it seems impossible to me that one is actually born to be an ace soccer player”
Pele
“If you are first you are first. If you are second, you are nothing.”
Pele
“The more difficult the victory, the greater the happiness in winning.”
Pele,
“People argue between Pele or Maradona. Di Stéfano is the best, much more complete.”
Pelé
“The more difficult the VICTORY,
The Greater the Happiness in WINING”
Pele
“The ambition should always be to play an elegant game.”
Pelé, 
‘I’ve come to accept that the life of a frontrunner is a hard one, that he will suffer more injuries than most men and that many of these injuries will not be accidental.’
