We want to be first; not first if, not first but; but first!
Kennedy, John F.
Somebody will always break your records. It is how you live that counts.
A horse never runs so fast as when he has other horses to catch up and outpace.
We have a lot of players in their first year. Some of them are also in their last year.
Running for money doesn't make you run fast. It makes you run first.

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.
I believe in rules. Sure I do. If there weren't any rules, how could you break them?
I don't psyche myself up. I psyche myself down. I think clearer when I'm not psyched up.
The only competition worthy a wise man is with himself.
The key to any game is to use your strengths and hide your weaknesses.
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.
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.
I watch a man shoot pool for an hour. If he misses more than one shot I know I can beat him.
Most games are lost, not won.
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.
Playing safe is only playing.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
The time your game is most vulnerable is when you're ahead, never let up.
Becoming number one is easier than remaining number one.
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.
Competition is a process or variety of habitual behavior that grows out of a habit of mind.
The game isn't over until it's over.
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.
When the game is over it is really just beginning.
Thou shalt not covet; but tradition approves all forms of competition.
Clough, Arthur Hugh
I love the winning, I can take the losing, but most of all I Love to play.
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.
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.
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.
Thank God for competition.When our competitors upset our plans or outdo our designs, they open infinite possibilities of our own work to us.
When you want to win a game, you have to teach. When you lose a game, you have to learn.
