Legendary UCLA mens’ basketball coach John Wooden famously  instructed his team, every year on the first day of practice, how to put on their socks and tie their shoes.

I think it's the little things that really count. The first thing I would show our players at our first meeting was how to take a little extra time putting on their shoes and socks properly.

It tells me that goose-stepping morons like yourself should try reading books instead of BURNING them

Disguise fair nature with hard-favour'd rage;

Then lend the eye a terrible aspect;

Let pry through the portage of the head
