Quotes from Lou Holtz. Who is Lou Holtz?

So, earlier today I read this quote of Lou Holtz:
Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.

It moved me to the point that I wanted to read some more Lou Holtz Quotes and here are others that stood out to me as I read them:
Do right. Do your best. Treat others as you want to be treated.
Show me someone who has done something worthwhile, and I’ll show you someone who has overcome adversity.
The problem with having a sense of humor is often that people you use it on aren’t in a very good mood.
You’ll never get ahead of anyone as long as you try to get even with him.

I read all those quotes from the website Brainy Quote. If you want, you may click directly over to read the complete listing of Lou Holtz Quotes. (Hey, that rhymes. Cool!)

So, you may ask: Who is Lou Holtz?
