Best Quotes about Competition

1.
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

2.
Man is a gaming animal. He must always be trying to get the better in something or other.
Lamb, Charles

3.
Strive mightily, but eat and drink as friends.
Shakespeare, William

4.
When you fear a foe, fear crushes your strength; and this weakness gives strength to your opponents.
Shakespeare, William

5.
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

6.
The key to any game is to use your strengths and hide your weaknesses.
Westphal, Paul

7.
He can run but he can't hide.
Louis, Joe

8.
The biggest things are often the easiest to do because there is so little competition.
Horne, William Van

9.
When the game is over it is really just beginning.
Kramer, Jerry

10.
You must sacrifice, train, do everything possible to put yourself in a position to win. But if you consider second or third a failure, I feel sorry for you.
Falcon, Joe

11.
And what is the greatest number? Number one.
Hume, David

12.
Competition is the spice of sports; but if you make spice the whole meal you'll be sick.
Leonard, George

13.
Enjoy the successes that you have, and don't be too hard on yourself when you don't do well. Too many times we beat up on ourselves. Just relax and enjoy it.
Sheehan, Patty

14.
The only competition worthy a wise man is with himself.
Jamieson, Mrs.

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.
There are two kinds of people: Those who do the work and those who take the credit. Try to be in the first group because there is less competition there.
Gandhi, Indira

17.
Thou shalt not covet; but tradition approves all forms of competition.
Clough, Arthur Hugh

18.
Everybody pulls for David, nobody roots for Goliath.
Chamberlain, Wilt

19.
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

20.
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

21.
How can they beat me? I've been struck by lightning, had two back operations, and been divorced twice.
Trevino, Lee

22.
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

23.
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

24.
Most games are lost, not won.
Stengel, Casey

25.
If football taught me anything about business, it is that you win the game one play at a time.
Tarkenton, Fran

26.
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

27.
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

28.
Hail Caesar, those who are about to die salute you.
Gladiator's Salute

29.
This is a tough game. There are times when you've got to play hurt, when you've got to block out the pain.
O'Neal, Shaquille

30.
The game isn't over until it's over.
Berra, Yogi

31.
There is nothing noble in being superior to some other person. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.
Proverb, Indian

32.
I watch a man shoot pool for an hour. If he misses more than one shot I know I can beat him.
Lassiter, Luther

33.
When I go our on the ice, I just think about my skating. I forget it is a competition.
Witt, Katarina

34.
A horse never runs so fast as when he has other horses to catch up and outpace.
Ovid

35.
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

36.
You get out in front -- you stay out in front.
Foyt, A. J.

37.
You have to defeat a great players aura more than his game.
Riley, Pat

38.
I believe in rules. Sure I do. If there weren't any rules, how could you break them?
Durocher, Leo

39.
The general fact is that the most effective way of utilizing human energy is through an organized rivalry, which by specialization and social control is, at the same time, organized co-operation.
Cooley, Charles Horton

Brock, Lou

45.
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

46.
No wise combatant underestimates their antagonist.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

47.
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

48.
