Best Quotes about Competition

1.
Every man in the world is better than someone else and not as good someone else.
Saroyan, William

2.
Racing is a matter of spirit not strength.
Guthrie, Janet

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

4.
When you step onto that field, you cannot concede a thing.
Sayers, Gayle

5.
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

6.
I watch a man shoot pool for an hour. If he misses more than one shot I know I can beat him.
Lassiter, Luther

7.
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

8.
Competitions are for horse, not artist.
Bartok, Bela

Competition is the whetstone of talent.
Saying

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

11.
The biggest things are often the easiest to do because there is so little competition.
Horne, William Van

12.
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

13.
Strive mightily, but eat and drink as friends.
Shakespeare, William

14.
Hail Caesar, those who are about to die salute you.
Gladiator's Salute

15.
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.

16.
The only competition worthy a wise man is with himself.
Jamieson, Mrs.

17.
I don't psyche myself up. I psyche myself down. I think clearer when I'm not psyched up.
Cauthen, Steve

18.
These are the days when it takes all you've got just to keep up with the losers.
Orpen, Robert

19.
Most games are lost, not won.
Stengel, Casey

20.
When you fear a foe, fear crushes your strength; and this weakness gives strength to your opponents.
Shakespeare, William

21.
Once you're physically capable of winning a gold medal, the rest is ninety percent mental.
Johnson, Patti

22.
When the game is over it is really just beginning.
Kramer, Jerry

23.
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

24.
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

25.
Somebody will always break your records. It is how you live that counts.
Campbell, Earl

26.
Win or lose, do it fairly.
Rockne, Knute

27.
Every time you go out on the ice, there are slight flaws. You can always think of something you should have done better. These are the things you must work on.
Hamill, Dorothy

28.
We want to be first; not first if, not first but; but first!
Kennedy, John F.

29.
Becoming number one is easier than remaining number one.
Bradley, Bill

30.
He can run but he can't hide.
Louis, Joe

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.
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

33.
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

34.
Mental toughness is to physical as four is to one.
Knight, Bobby

35.
Show me a guy who is afraid to look bad, and I'll show you a guy you can beat every time.
Brock, Lou

36.
I worked very hard. I felt I could play the game. The only thing that could stop me was myself.
Abbott, Jim

37.
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

38.
There is nothing noble in being superior to some other person. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.
Proverb, Indian

39.
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

40.
I play [golf] with friends sometimes, but there are never friendly games.
Hogan, Ben

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

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

43.
In this game, by trying to win; you automatically lose.
