Competition

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

Best Quotes about Competition

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

2.
You get out in front -- you stay out in front.
Foyt, A. J.

3.
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

4.
There is nothing noble in being superior to some other person. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.
Proverb, Indian

5.
To free the mind from the habit of competition, we must see in detail the process by which the mind is ensnared by competition.
Beecher, Marguerite

6.
When you're riding, only the race in which you're riding is important.
Shoemaker, Willie

7.
The ability to learn faster than your competitors may be the only sustainable competitive advantage.
Geus, Arie de

8.
Everybody pulls for David, nobody roots for Goliath.
Chamberlain, Wilt

9.
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

10.
Most games are lost, not won.
Stengel, Casey

11.
The difference of great players is at a certain point in a match they raise their level of play and maintain it. Lesser players play great for a set, but then less.
Sampras, Pete

12.
I consider myself one of a very small handful of drivers in the world that are top drivers. The best one? I don't think anybody can say they're the best one because, from one week to the next, you can be on form or off form a little bit.
Mansell, Nigel

13.
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.

14.
Strive mightily, but eat and drink as friends.
Shakespeare, William

15.
A horse never runs so fast as when he has other horses to catch up and outpace.
Ovid

16.
I ski to win. When the day comes that I can't get myself into a fighting mood anymore, I won't be able to win and I'll stop racing.
Stenmark, Ingemar

17.
After the game the King and pawn go into the same box.
Proverb, Italian

18.
The only competition worthy a wise man is with himself.
Jamieson, Mrs.

19.
When the game is over it is really just beginning.
Kramer, Jerry

20.
You must play boldly to win.
Palmer, Arnold

21.
The biggest things are often the easiest to do because there is so little competition.
Horne, William Van

22.
I don't psyche myself up. I psyche myself down. I think clearer when I'm not psyched up.
Cauthen, Steve

23.
How you respond to the challenge in the second half will determine what you become after the game, whether you are a winner or a loser.
Holtz, Lou

24.
I won it, at least five million times. Men who were stronger, bigger and faster than I was could have done it, but they never picked up a pole, and never made the feeble effort to pick their legs off the ground and get over the bar.
Richards, Bob

25.
When you step onto that field, you cannot concede a thing.
Sayers, Gayle

26.
Thank God for competition.When our competitors upset our plans or outdo our designs, they open infinite possibilities of our own work to us.
Atkinson, Gil

27.
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

28.
I don't care how good you play, you can find somebody who can beat you, and I don't care how bad you play, you can find somebody you can beat.
Penick, Harvey

29.
You have to defeat a great players aura more than his game.
Riley, Pat

30.
We want to be first; not first if, not first but; but first!
Kennedy, John F.

31.
And what is the greatest number? Number one.
Hume, David

32.
The medals don't mean anything and the glory doesn't last. It's all about your happiness. The rewards are going to come, but my happiness is just loving the sport and having fun performing.
Kersee, Jackie Joyner

33.
When you fear a foe, fear crushes your strength; and this weakness gives strength to your opponents.
Shakespeare, William

34.
If football taught me anything about business, it is that you win the game one play at a time.
Tarkenton, Fran

35.
The weakness of an enemy forms part of our own strength.
Saying

36.
You find that you have peace of mind and can enjoy yourself, get more sleep, and rest when you know that it was a one hundred percent effort that you gave -- win or lose.
Howe, Gordie

37.
The Law of Win Win says, Let's not do it your way or my way; let's do it the best way.
Anderson, Greg

38.
It's amazing how much of this is mental. Everybody's in good shape. Everybody knows how to ski. Everybody has good equipment. When it really boils down to it, it's who wants it the most, and who's the most confident on his skis.
Crist, Reggie

39.
I watch a man shoot pool for an hour. If he misses more than one shot I know I can beat him.
Lassiter, Luther

40.
If you make every game a life and death proposition, you're going to have problems. For one thing, you'll be dead a lot.
Smith, Dean

Abbott, Jim

46.
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

47.
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

48.
