Competition

How can we hope to remain economically competitive in a world in which... 90% of Dutch high-school students take advanced math courses and 100% of teachers in Germany have double majors, while the best we can say about our pocket of excellence is that 75% of [American] students have learned to critique tactfully?
- Alexander, Barbara J.

Best Quotes about Competition

1.
The time your game is most vulnerable is when you're ahead, never let up.
Laver, Rod

2.
For when the One Great Scorer comes to mark against your name, He writes -- not that you won or lost -- but how you played the Game.
Rice, Grantland

3.
Our life is not really a mutual helpfulness; but rather, it's fair competition cloaked under due laws of war; it's a mutual hostility.
Carlyle, Thomas

4.
My hat's in the ring. The fight is on and I'm stripped to the buff.
Roosevelt, Theodore

5.

Abbott, Jim

6.
One cannot play chess if one becomes aware of the pieces as living souls and of the fact that the Whites and the Blacks have more in common with each other than with the players. Suddenly one loses all interest in who will be champion.
Rapoport, Anatol

7.
Do your work with your whole heart, and you will succeed -- there's so little competition.

Horne, William Van

10.
These are the days when it takes all you've got just to keep up with the losers.
Orpen, Robert

11.
The price which society pays for the law of competition, like the price it pays for cheap comforts and luxuries, is great; but the advantages of this law are also greater still than its cost -- for it is to this law that we owe our wonderful material development, which brings improved conditions in its train. But, whether the law be benign or not, we must say of it: It is here; we cannot evade it; no substitutes for it have been found; and while the law may be sometimes hard for the individual, it is best for the race, because it ensures the survival of the fittest in every department.
Carnegie, Andrew

12.
Don't look back. Something might be gaining on you.
Paige, Leroy ''Satchel''

13.
We want to be first; not first if, not first but; but first!
Kennedy, John F.

14.
What it comes down to is that anybody can win with the best horse. What makes you good is if you can take the second or third-best horse and win.
Aragon, Vicky

15.
Surely the best way to meet the enemy is head on in the field and not wait till they plunder our very homes.
Goldsmith, Oliver

16.
If football taught me anything about business, it is that you win the game one play at a time.
Tarkenton, Fran

17.
So long as the system of competition in the production and exchange of the means of life goes on, the degradation of the arts will go on; and if that system is to last for ever, then art is doomed, and will surely die; that is to say, civilization will die.
Morris, William

18.
I don't psyche myself up. I psyche myself down. I think clearer when I'm not psyched up.
Cauthen, Steve

19.
The person who figures out how to harness the collective genius of his or her organization is going to blow the competition away.
Wriston, Walter

20.
Mental toughness is to physical as four is to one.
Knight, Bobby

21.
When you're riding, only the race in which you're riding is important.
Shoemaker, Willie

A competitor will find a way to win. Competitors take bad breaks and use them to drive themselves just that much harder. Quitters take bad breaks and use them as reasons to give up. It's all a matter of pride.
Lopez, Nancy

23.
Competition is a process or variety of habitual behavior that grows out of a habit of mind.
Beecher, Willard
