Competition

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
Competition Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Competition

1.
Somebody will always break your records. It is how you live that counts.
Campbell, Earl

2.
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

3.
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

4.
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.

5.
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

6.
After the game the King and pawn go into the same box.
Proverb, Italian

7.
Every man in the world is better than someone else and not as good someone else.
Saroyan, William

8.
Becoming number one is easier than remaining number one.
Bradley, Bill

I don't compete with other discus throwers. I compete with my own history.
Oerter, Al

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

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

12.
When the game is over it is really just beginning.
Kramer, Jerry

13.
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

14.
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.

When you want to win a game, you have to teach. When you lose a game, you have to learn.
Landry, Tom

16.
No wise combatant underestimates their antagonist.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

17.
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

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

19.
My hat's in the ring. The fight is on and I'm stripped to the buff.
Roosevelt, Theodore

20.
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

21.
I love the winning, I can take the losing, but most of all I Love to play.
Becker, Boris

22.
And what is the greatest number? Number one.
Hume, David

23.
Men often compete with one another until the day they die; comradeship consists of rubbing shoulders jocularly with a competitor.
Hoagland, Edward

24.
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

25.
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

26.
Most games are lost, not won.
Stengel, Casey

Falcon, Joe

35.
What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight; it's the size of the fight in the dog.
Eisenhower, Dwight D.

36.
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

You have to be able to center yourself, to let all of your emotions go... Don't ever forget that you play with your soul as well as your body.
Abdul-Jabbar, Kareem
