Competition

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

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

Stenmark, Ingemar

6.
Competitions are for horse, not artist.

Lopez, Nancy

You must not fight too often with one enemy, or you will teach him all your tricks of war.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

12.
The ability to learn faster than your competitors may be the only sustainable competitive advantage.
Geus, Arie de

World trade means competition from anywhere; advancing technology encourages cross-industry competition.Consequently, strategic planning must consider who our future competitors will be, not only who is here today.
Allison, Eric

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

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

16.
And what is the greatest number? Number one.
Hume, David

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

18.
How can they beat me? I've been struck by lightning, had two back operations, and been divorced twice.
Trevino, Lee

19.
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

20.
Competition is the spice of sports; but if you make spice the whole meal you'll be sick.
Leonard, George

21.
Don't look back. Something might be gaining on you.
Paige, Leroy ''Satchel''

22.
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

Sayers, Gayle

29.

Palmer, Arnold

30.
No wise combatant underestimates their antagonist.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

31.
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

32.
The only competition worthy a wise man is with himself.
Jamieson, Mrs.

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

36.
Win or lose, do it fairly.
Rockne, Knute

37.
The key to any game is to use your strengths and hide your weaknesses.
Westphal, Paul

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.
It has meant a lot to me to challenge the best players in the world and to beat them. And it means a lot to me to be out here and fighting for the title and, you know, it hurts not to win it.
Agassi, Andre

40.
You have to defeat a great players aura more than his game.
Riley, Pat

41.
Strive mightily, but eat and drink as friends.
Shakespeare, William

42.

Saying

43.

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

45.
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

46.
After the game the King and pawn go into the same box.
Proverb, Italian
