Yesterday I posted a quote from Mike Williams' Facebook page that summed up what he believed to be the lesson of his qutting Syracuse football:

ITS NOT QUITTING IF YOUR NOT WANTED ITS MOVING ON REMEMBER THAT!"

Folks around these parts were so inspired that they decided to delve deeper into the psyche of Wiliams to gauge how he would attack more of life's many tough situations.

For instance:

ITS NOT DYING IF YOU STOP BREATHING ITS CHILLIN' FOR A WHILE REMEMBER THAT!"

ITS NOT CHOKING IF YOU STRIKE OUT ITS FANNING THE CATCHER REMEMBER THAT!"

ITS NOT BLEEDING IF COACH MARRONE PUNCHES YOU ITS GETTING IN HIS FISTS WAY REMEMBER THAT!"

ryanwk628 meditated on it and found these gems within (my fav in bold).

ITS NOT LOSING IF YOU DONT WANT TO WIN ITS DOING YO THING REMEMBER THAT!
ITS NOT CHEATING IF YOU THOUGHT IT WAS OPEN NOTES ITS BEING STUDIOUZ REMEMBER THAT!
ITS NOT HARASSMENT IF THE CHICKS FAT ITS CHARITY REMEMBER THAT!
ITS NOT A DROP IF GREG PAULUS THREW THE PASS ITS PREVENTING AN INTERCEPTION REMEMBER THAT!
ITS NOT GAY IF YOU DONT MAKE OUT FIRST ITS HELPING A BROTHA OUT REMEMBER THAT!

AZLK adds some of this own:

ITS NOT GOING UNDRAFTED IF UR RLY RLY GOOD ITS JUST PLAYING HARD TO GET REMEMBER THAT!
ITS NOT WORKING AT A GAS STATION IF U USED TO BE A FOOTBAL PLAYA ITS PICKIN UP SUM XTRA $$$ REMEMBER THAT!
ITS NOT PLAYING BALL AT A CC IF U GOT SUSPENDED FROM A BIG NAME UNIVERSITIE ITS TAKING A VACATION REMEMBER THAT!

And a meme is born.  #MWLifeLessons.  Go.
