"If you can get everybody to work together, it's much better than having that one star player. If that one star player goes out or they take themselves out or whatever happens, you're left with kind of the ragtag team. But if you can get everybody up to that standard, then you can switch players in and out and the team isn't hurt because of it, and that feels more healthy than the alternative." – Natalie Born
"If you don't have grace and you're a leader, you're a very poor leader. Because without that you can't gain the trust of the people that work with you." - Jeremy Duvall
