Stephen Curry Quotes: Inspiring Advice on Faith, Family and Success

Wardell Stephen “Steph” Curry II is not only the best shooter in NBA history, he’s now officially a two-time NBA MVP. Given his accomplishments over the last two years, this is hardly a surprise.

In the 2014-2015 season, Curry won the MVP after a fantastic season leading the Golden State Warriors to a franchise record for wins, and their first NBA championship since 1975.

This year, he took things a step further leading the Warriors to the best record in NBA history AND he became the first player to lead the league in scoring while shooting 50-40-90(50% for field goals, 40% for three-pointers, and 90% for free throws).

It’s a little early to dethrone guys like Michael, Magic and Lebron but it’s hard to dispute that he’s on a path to being one of the greatest players ever.

As if being an incredibly talented athlete weren’t enough, he’s a thoughtful, introspective and inspiring person whose advice about family and faith are truly motivational.

Below are some of the best Steph Curry quotes we’ve come across so far.

Quotes About Success In Life:

1. Be prepared to work harder than anyone else:

“If you take time to realize what your dream is and what you really want in life — no matter what it is, whether it’s sports or in other fields — you have to realize that there is always work to do, and you want to be the hardest working person in whatever you do, and you put yourself in a position to be successful. And you have to have a passion about what you do.” – Stephen Curry

“I do a little sign on the court every time I make a shot or a good pass and I pound my chest and point to the sky – it symbolizes that I have a heart for God.

She used to be my commentator. She used to be Bob Fitzgerald for me counting down the scores. I hit a game-winning shot or whatever, and I’d stumble over and give her a high five, stuff like that.” – Stephen Curry

"I love playing basketball; there's no doubt about it. It's something I've been doing since -- what, mom and dad, two? With Fisher-Price goals. My grandma's here; we were talking about it yesterday.

You’d think there are no hurdles or obstacles that I had to overcome, but even when I got to high school I wasn’t ranked. I wasn’t ranked. I wasn’t highly touted as a high school prospect. I had nobody really running, knocking on my door saying “Please, please, please come play for our school,” – Stephen Curry
