Oerter, Al

2.
When you fear a foe, fear crushes your strength; and this weakness gives strength to your opponents.
Shakespeare, William

3.
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

Landry, Tom

8.
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

9.
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

10.
Everybody pulls for David, nobody roots for Goliath.
Chamberlain, Wilt

11.
After the game the King and pawn go into the same box.
Proverb, Italian

12.
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

13.
The key to any game is to use your strengths and hide your weaknesses.
Westphal, Paul

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

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

16.
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.

17.
Every man in the world is better than someone else and not as good someone else.
Saroyan, William

18.
Focus on competition has always been a formula for mediocrity.
Burrus, Daniel

19.
This is a tough game. There are times when you've got to play hurt, when you've got to block out the pain.

20.
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.
Stenmark, Ingemar

21.
Win or lose, do it fairly.
Rockne, Knute

22.

Roosevelt, Theodore

23.
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

24.
Men often compete with one another until the day they die; comradeship consists of rubbing shoulders jocularly with a competitor.
Hoagland, Edward

25.
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

26.
I consider myself one of a very small handful of drivers in the world that are top drivers. The best one? I don't think anybody can say they're the best one because, from one week to the next, you can be on form or off form a little bit.
Mansell, Nigel

27.
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

28.
Once you're physically capable of winning a gold medal, the rest is ninety percent mental.
Johnson, Patti

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

30.
The time your game is most vulnerable is when you're ahead, never let up.
Laver, Rod

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

32.
When the game is over it is really just beginning.
Kramer, Jerry

33.
A horse never runs so fast as when he has other horses to catch up and outpace.
Ovid

34.
We want to be first; not first if, not first but; but first!
Kennedy, John F.

35.
Do your work with your whole heart, and you will succeed -- there's so little competition.
Hubbard, Elbert

36.
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

37.
The game isn't over until it's over.
Berra, Yogi

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

39.
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.

Playing safe is only playing.
Olson, Chuck
