Happy birthday, Kyle Chandler!

While the actor has dozens of credits to his name, most recently inspiring Netflix binges with his drama "Bloodline," he'll always be Coach Taylor to us.

For five seasons, Chandler starred on "Friday Night Lights" as Eric Taylor, the head coach of the Dillon Panthers (and later the East Dillon Lions) with a penchant for inspirational speeches.

In honor of Chandler hitting the half-century mark today, here are five Coach Taylor quotes that are sure to motivate you.

1. We secretly tell ourselves this on a daily basis.

2. We believe you, Coach.

3. Coach's moral compass was almost always intact.

4. Coach had a knack for saying the right thing.

5. "Just do."
