Arrow Weekly words of wisdom with Foster...

Quote:
Arian Foster is the Texans’ 6-1, 227-pound starting running back (and the reigning AFC Offensive Player of the Week). He’s also a father of one (a daughter, Zeniah Egypt Foster) and a former philosophy major at the University of Tennessee who enjoys writing music and poetry.

Every Friday during the 2010 season, I’ll check in with Foster for whatever “Words of Wisdom” he feels like sharing. It might be brief, it might be long-winded, it might be poetry or it might be prose. We’ll just have to wait and see.

All quotes are Foster originals unless otherwise noted.

Weekly Words of Wisdom with Arian Foster – Friday, Sept. 17:

“Dreams are commonly associated with the intangible. This is false. Our thoughts mold our reality, positively and negatively. We are far too often so in awe of the next man’s mirror that we lose sight of our own reflection. Others CAN be inspiring, only if you respect the journey and don’t envy the peak of the conquest. Greatness is a conscious decision. Focus is as powerful as you can imagine it to be.”


Check back for another installment next Friday. Let Arian know what you think in the comments section below or on Twitter @ArianFoster.

I kinda wish he wasn't such a philosophy douche, honestly.

Whatever, as long as it helps him and as long as he continues being awesome, I don't care.

I like thoughtful guys, especially after they step on the throats of the Colts defense.

Philosophy says that the people you run over on the way to the endzone don't really feel pain, they only feel their perception of pain. Make them perceive alot.

Haha, screw that, I'm glad he's a "philosophy douche". Its a nice change of pace to see a NFL player who isn't going to strip clubs every weekend with more jewelry on than the strippers at the clubs. Hell, its nice to see an NFL player that has the ability to construct a paragraph.

I like his nuggets of wisdom. It's a nice change from players that know little more than partying.

True. I guess what I was trying to say is that I'm scared he'll go all "Ricky Williams" on us at some point, saying his heart isn't in it and he has to go soul searching or something.

I think it is nice to know that some players can actually speak English. Can talk in complete sentences. And actually put words to his thoughts that other people who speak English can understand.

And obviously studied something other than basket weaving or speech in college.

That was deep, I'm really starting to like this guy and I like philosophy so it nice to see it in one of our players. A person who thinks a little more than the average guy will never bother me.

From what I've seen his say about the game, he loves it, and it provides for him, and he enjoys the game. Plus, remember that he isn't on a huuuuge salary as well. AF can't do a Coffee.

Give me Plato over Plaxico anyday.

The only reason Williams "retired" was because he couldn't pass the NFL's drug tests. As long as Foster is clean on his tests, he can be as "new age" as he wants.

He told the Tennesse press that he would do an interview only if it's conducted in "pterodactyl"...I think that is very funny and suggest his nickname should be The Pterodactyl.

This is a good thread. I'd like to see more players like him... in other sports, too (especially hockey, not too many college graduates there). I'm looking forward to next week already. BTW, I'd go with "philosophy major"
