Pele Quotes


“Everything is practice.”

The Pele's quote says that everything is practice and experience.

Experience is the crucial element of success. Everything can be improved by experience. However, experience implies a process.

The process we are talking about is the classic path to a goal. We must go through failures, mistakes, and adversity to achieve a goal. But on the same path, we can also meet people who help us overcome one adversity and tell us how to handle the next. That is also experience.

We have to be positive and patient because gaining experience is a slow process, which takes a lot of practice. But success is assured when we are experts in something.


“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.”


“A penalty is a cowardly way to score.”


“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.”


“If you are first you are first. If you are second, you are nothing.”


“The more difficult the victory, the greater the happiness in winning.”


“Enthusiasm is everything. It must be taut and vibrating like a guitar string.”


“When you are young, you do a lot of stupid things.”


“I am constantly being asked about individuals. The only way to win is as a team. Football is not about one or two or three star players.”


“I sometimes lie awake at night and wonder why I am still so popular and, to be honest, I don't know.”
